    Hey Guys,

    So my camera on my iPhone4 has a big fuzzy circle on one side and they agreed to replace my phone with a new one if I took it to the Apple store. I made an appointment for tomorrow and before then I need to restore my iPhone to the regular 4.3.3 from my Jailbroken version. I'm perfectly capable of reflashing the phone, but what I haven't figured out yet is a way to backup everything I have downloaded via Cydia. All of my other Apps are synced to my iTunes account so I'm not worried about them, but I am concerned with all of my Cydia Apps and Tweaks.

    I use FolderEnhancer so I'm assuming I'm going to have 10 pages of Apps since they won't be organized at all. Is there a way to backup my Apps and which folders they are in and their location on the Springboard? I'm sure this is just some sort of reference file somewhere.

    I would also like to backup all of the Cydia Apps and Tweaks I have installed. I wrote down a list of everything installed and worst case I can redo it manually, but I'd really like to backup my sources/repos and packages so when I get my new iPhone I can just flash the jailbroken firmware, copy over my backed up Cydia files, Sync my iPhone and have it look just like it does now. Basically I'd like to make a complete image of my phone that I can put back on, but at the very least I want to backup all my Cydia stuff.

    I read about PkgBackup, but I can't get to work on 4.3.3 on my iPhone4...

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Tagging this in case there is a future answer. I had a glitch, and had to re-flash back to "standard" 4.3.3. Backup successfully picked up all the apps (even those D/L through **********), but it didn't pick up ANYTHING from Cydia itself. Like the above poster, I had made a list. Just had to spend the bulk of the afternoon reloading all those sources and packages.

    Don't want to go through that headache again whenever the next FW comes out.
