Need to restore. Will cydia apps recover from iTunes?
First thing first: DO NOT TRY SIRI MIC COLORS!!
I downloaded the red version of Siri Mic Colors, didn't like it very much, removed it from Cydia, and performed a respring.
One problem: Cydia must have removed a core file for Siri when it removed Siri Mic Colors..
Now when I activate Siri, there is NO mic and then my iPhone 4S crashes.
I tried to restore from a backup but it is a core file that isn't even covered in the backup I'm guessing.
Now for the question:
I will need to restore my iPhone to get Siri back. But I also have a lot installed and do not want to lose it all. I would really appreciate it if some expert confirmed what I am about to do:
BACK UP to iTunes > RESET IPHONE TO FACTORY STATE on iTunes > JAILBREAK with GreenPois0n Absinthe on the fresh iPhone > RESTORE FROM BACKUP on iTunes = All apps and jailbreak hacks will still be on the phone?
...Thanks in advance to anyone who took the time to read at least

Just an update:
I successfully restored Siri and my iPhone! As well as flawlessly restoring my Cydia sources and packages (not package settings though).
I used xBackup because PkgBackup was too expensive, and it worked well. Also I chose not to use the cloud backup but from what I have read, it works. I chose to use SSH and save the backup folder to my computer for safe keeping.
