    You're gonna lose your jailbroken data.. when you update to 4.0, you won't be jailbroken right away, so you won't have that data..

    The best way to 'save' it is to aptbackup or pkgbackup. While it does not a complete backup it makes a list so you could use the app when you've restored to 4.0 to download the apps again.

    You can get it back, though, by using the backup feature in Rock, downloading Aptbackup, and Mxbackup for your MxTube videos.

    Yup. Radish and ChrisL are right. Once you update, your whole file system is gonna be screwed. Almost all of your applications won't open, springboard crashes constantly, screen freezing, etc. You're gonna have to do a complete restore/update to 4.0. Just back up your stuff first. Music/Videos/Photos/Contacts/etc. with iTunes and Cydia packages with PKG Backup. PKG Backup will create a contact once you use it. This will serve as a log for your Cydia packages. So when you sync to your iTunes, you have to sync the PKG Backup contact, or else you won't be able to get any of them back with it. Once done syncing, just restore/update and re-sync your stuff back into it. Simple.

    Er.... Yes!

    What I am interested in is a manual way in backing up normal apps, any alternatives to appbackup? It just doesn't work for me, annoyingly

    Or could I just backup the application directory in ifile, and then make sure the only apps in iTunes are the ones I have. Restore and upgrade, resync, then restore app data. I wouldn't bother with aptbackup or pkgbackup, as most cydia apps are not working at the moment. I would wait and see when they are upgraded. I know a forum that has a list of compatible apps, but I can't and won't link it here. Pm me, and I may link you it
