I recently discovered an awesome application in the Cydia store called by the name iBye that allows to do the data backup of the many built-in iOS apps as well as App store installations. In addition it can also backup the Cydia apps and tweaks that you have installed on your jailbroken iPhone. Of course this is not the only solution to do a backup your data, for example you can use the iTunes built-in backup but that will not backup your Cydia apps. Then you have some other Cydia applications that can do the backup including the APT Backup that can backup the Cydia apps but they will not help with the backup of Apple App store installations.
This Cydia app will allow to do the backup of App Store App Data, Cydia Apps, Messages, Notes, Mail, Calendar, Photos, Address Book, Safari, Syslog, and Call History. So, as you can see pretty much everything is included. And one of the strengths of the program is that you can selectively perform the backup of each of these items that you want to backup. iBye supports backup not only to the FTP but can also use you Dropbox account to do the backup. You can also do a local backup of the data but that is not recommended. There are many other small but nice features that sets this application apart from many other similar apps. It supports the backup/restore procedures on EDGE, 3G, and Wi-Fi connections.
