I have PkgBackup from Cydia installed on my iPhone4, and i was wondering if it will work as i hope it will. For this new jailbreak, after i back-up my phone in iTunes, i download new ios with iTunes, then jailbreak. After that i open Cydia, and add PkgBackup, then i hit "restore" in PkgBackup(while phone is still plugged into Mac) and hopefully everything that i had in Cydia will reappear in my phone. If i'm wrong, than i need some step by step help. Just to play it safe, i've written down everything that i have in Cydia. By the way, does anybody know anything about "tinyumbrella"? My neighbor said that his son used it on his iPhone, but the kid lives in SoCal, and i'm here in Fla. Thanks in advance for any help.

Tiny umbrella is to save your SHSH blobs locally. It does the same thing Cydia does when you request to save your SHSH blobs just locally. This is the method for 4.2 blobs but I don't think it's much different for 4.3 or other versions.

O.K. So my original post was correct. After jailbreaking, i download Pkgbackup through Cydia, plug in my phone, and hit "restore" on the opened Pkgbackup app, and everything will return to my phone just as i had left it before the new ios upgrade.

Isn't that version old?
Go here for the download.
The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella
It's on the right hand side.
I know for PC, it's an executable file, meaning you run it whenever you need it. It's not an installed program.
For Mac, it's a .pkg... whatever that is. Can't comment on that.
