    1) Use Pkgbackup from cydia to save your cydia packages, then sync with iTunes
    2) Use Chronus from cydia to back up app store (and stock) apps with user data then ssh the contents of /var/mobile/Library/Peferences/Timcapsule to your hard drive
    3) Restore (set up as new)
    4) Re-jailbreak with Redsn0w
    5) Sync with iTunes
    6) Download Chronus and Pkgbackup from cydia
    7) SSH the Chronus files you moved to your hard drive back to /var/mobile/Library/Peferences/Timcapsule and restore them with Chronus
    8) Run Pkgbackup and restore your cydia packages
    9) Reboot phone
    10) Apply any other settings that were erased during the restore.

    for some reason, chronus crashes when i try to open it, is it compatible with 3.0.1 software?
