    Consensus seems to be PkgBackup over aptbackup (or whatever it's called). PkgBackup now backs up iPhone apps data too...very cool!

    Really? So there's no need for backing up with iTunes now...

    I just used phgbackup yesterday. This is my first time jailbreaking and it was still super simple to use.

    well yes but were pkgbackup comes in hand is you can restore your device as a new device but still have the option to restore app data

    You still do backups with iTunes, but with this feature of PkgBackup you could restore as new and then selectively add your data files back. Angry Birds achievements is the one most often talked about, but you could restore data from any app. I backup the data for about 18 of my apps and now I always restore as new iPhone when i re-jailbreak.
