Download Aptbackup from Cydia, run it, click backup. Then sync your phone with iTunes. Upgrade, reinstall aptbackup, this time choose restore in aptbackup and your stuff should come back over.

aptbackup allows restoring a list of apps
appbackup from Cydia allows backing up/restoring App settings. I have tested the backup but not the restore at this point.
I also wanted to reopen this question as it pertains to other areas of backup concern, which to me can be important and often overlooked.
If anyone has tips/tricks or other suggestions about important things to backup please tell.
Pictures/Videos - I'll just be using Windows to synchronize before I upgrade.
Call History - I believe this backs up with iTunes, but won't it be lost as I have to restore phone to jailbreak?
SMS/MMS - Again, backs up with iTunes, right? But how to get this if a restore is necessary. I suspect this could be done through a manual method, such as backing up sms.db at /private/var/mobile/Library/SMS and moving it back after the upgrade. Probably not so easy when changing IOS versions.
