    Appbackup will backup your cydia apps and settings. Chronus will backup your appstore apps and backups.

    Simply run both of these, connect to iTunes and right click the phone and hit backup. Also right click the transfer purchases if you haven't already to ensure itunes can copy back your apps after restore.

    In re of your repo's. These ARE NOT backed up, write them down and re-enter them manually after. Also, in re of appbackup, some cydia apps are not supported in iOS4 yet and if appbackup restores these it will brick iOS4, so make sure you do your homework on which apps can be restored.

    When the restore is complete. Download appbackup and chronus from cydia. Then restore from your backup. Then run appbackup and restore to get your cydia apps back. You appstore apps should be restored as part of the restore from backup.
