    Title says it all. With the 3.1 jailbreak coming soon I was wondering if it was possible to keep all my game save data? Cydia apps and everything else I can download again, its just the save data that I am worried about. So it is possible to do this?

    iTunes automatically makes backups of your device/your non-jailbroken App Store data (except if you disabled it manually).

    You can (and should) restore to (custom?) 3.1, to clean your device out and remove all traces of Cydia (after an update, you still have your old app folder on your disk).
    After the restore, iTunes asks you if you want to restore from your backup. Just do it, then, and you'll be fine! (at least that's my experience)

    If you didn't restore to a custom firmware (from PwnageTool), jailbreak it with greenpois0n/redsn0w/whatever jailbreak solution will come first
