Backup your contacts using iCloud.

Backup up Cydia apps and repos with PkcgBackup (Cydia)

Springtomize 2 backups your springboard but im not sure if you can access those backups after a clean restore; Springtomize might stored them locally on your phone.

All of your folders and icons will be sorted and organized identically to your previous state.

restoring your iphone does not leave a trace of a jb. you'll have to re-jb
