    I think there is a Cydia app that backs up all cydia related info. Unsure of the name of it though. I have read a few threads saying that winterboard doesn't work in 3.1 yet and that ssh won't work in iTunes 9 (if you decide to use version 9 that is). Since u can't restore from backup after you jailbreak, I don't think high scores and such, will transfer over. You might want anothr opinion other than mine though.

    Try doing one of the following. I googled it and found these two options:

    Option #1
    SFTP into your iPhone and backup all apps you've installed via Cydia that are in the directory above.
    Also backup the folder called "apt" in /private/etc/
    Restore Pwned firmware or new firmware them QuickPwn it, and SFTP in and copy back your apps and the "apt" folder to their correct directories and let Cydia update everything.


    Option #2

    You can install "AptBackup" (use Cydia and search for it) and it will backup a list of al the apps you've installed via Cydia. That list then gets backed up when you do a normal backup to iTunes. Then after you have to restore your iPhone, use AptBackup to restore the list and Cydia will install them all back at the same time.
