    It makes a memo of all your current Cydia apps and themes etc, then saves it as this giant wall of text to your address book. Then, when you re-jailbreak, install PkgBackup again and it finds the wall of text in your address book and reinstalls everything.

    Preferences etc. will be saved with iTunes. Just right click on your device when it's plugged in then hit Backup.
