    I've got about 20 cydia apps (and their settings) I need moved to an iPhone 4.

    Both are JB; the 3G is OS3.1 and the 4 is 4.1.

    What's the best way to tackle this? Googling seemed to provide little help.

    The Cydia apps just reinstall and redo the settings.

    There is no easier way than re-downloading/re-setting up for Cydia apps?

    There's an app called PkgBackup or something similar that you could check out.

    Is there a way to transfer settings/data from legally purchased apps (such as Angry Birds, saved games) from one phone to another?

    iTunes did not seem to do this.

    As far as I know, if it can, it would be via syncing/backing up your older iPhone, then "Restoring" it to the iPhone 4

    Just transfer your purchased apps from iphone to computer or use backup and restore to new iphone.

    I tried this.

    It successfully moved the apps, but not the data (saved games, settings).

    Accomplished this by using iPhoneBrowser (USB connection to view files on iPhone) and copying the applications' directories.

    Unfortunately, all files copied/pasted become read-only. There is no USB method to update permissions.

    I'll need a wi-fi connection (and WinSCP) to finish this later.

    Just another example of why jailbreak is so important.
