    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

    The jailbreak apps will not still be there. You will need to re download them.

    Also, that THEME didn't break Siri! It was something else

    I think it was the uninstall of that app that messed things up, other people have had the same problems:
    Anyone install Siri Mic Colors? Siri not working.... - MacRumors Forums

    This is perfect, I will try one of these!

    @E_Brown thank you for clarifying that for me! I almost just decided to try it and hope for the best.

    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.
