    Ok, I have an IP4 and have Jailbroken my phone with Limera1n. I have gotten some great apps like MyWi and My3G, etc. How do I save them? What is in place to make sure I don't have to pay the $19.99 again if I have to restore my phone - or if I get a new phone, or something of the sort. Syncing with iTunes doens't save Cydia apps. How do you save these type apps?

    I have purchased Cydia apps recently and had to restore a few times. Every time I log back into Cydia after re-jailbreaking when I go to an app I have paid for it says I have purchased it and allows me to install it again at no cost.

    Just like apple does on the app store Cydia saves your purchases and you can re-download them anytime you like.

    Is there a way to get a list of apps that you purchased? Email the list or something?

    Check out the 'How to Backup your Cydia Apps' on iphonedownloadblog dot com, posted on 11/24/2010 - this will give you the full list of installed JB apps - some stuff is automatically included with Cydia as dependencies, but usually the purchased stuff is easily visible. You can also do 'dpkg -l' to get the list of apps with descriptions and versions too.

    the cydia store will save your purchase and you will be able to get the apps that you have previously bought for free.
