I just upgraded from 4.1 to 4.2.1 last night after the untethered jb came out. After upgrading, jailbreaking, installing cydia and appsync 4, and Installous and syncing with iTunes - I still don't have any of my stuff I installed through Cydia or Installous. I'm back to square one. Any idea how I get all of my stuff back?

The question has been closed for being "supportive of Piracy. We do not support piracy on this website." by conradev, 07 Feb '11, 16:16

A restore will delete all jailbreak will not get it back.. There is one way but you have to pay for PKGbackup and save you jailbreak data, but because you do not have that yet it's all gone.. It worth having it's only $ 7.99 ( I think )

If you synced your cracked apps with iTunes, just resync them with Appsync installed.
Regarding Cydia tweaks, you have to reinstall them.

I did sync with iTunes before I upgraded the iOS, and resynced afterwords, but they are still not there. I see in other posts that other people are not having this issue - all of their stuff is still there after the new jailbreak. It figures mine would be the one to mess up...
