    There is no reliable way to backup cydia apps via another cydia app.
    The two availability have very mixed results. The easiest thing to do is grab a pen and pad of paper and make a list of the apps you actually need.
    This helps you clear out the clutter slow your not slowed down after you rejailbreak.
    After you jailbrak. reinstall everything you decided to keep.
    Your music and legit apps you can backup by syncing with itunes.
    If your looking to jailbreak 4.1 check my sig.
