    I'm still having issues after upgrading to 3.1.2 so I want to set my phone up as new. I don't want to lose my save data for some of my games though. Can I ssh into my phone and get the files that have my game progress and then put back after I restore and rejailbreak? If so what is the name if the files I need to get?

    I've used AppBackup (not AptBackup) in the past.

    It creates a file which you copy to your computer. Then you restore, JB, install AB, copy that file back and restore your info from it.

    Ok so just so I'm clear I back up the data the go to var/mobile/Library/AppBackup and copy the appbackup folder to my computer. Then after I've restored and jailbroke I copy the appbackup folder back to var/mobile/Library/AppBackup and restore the data back?

    That sounds about right. Pop the dev out an email to be sure.

    All I know is when I did it last everything worked great.

    PS. This is ONLY for AppStore apps, not jailbroken apps.

    Indeed.
    Otherwise for jailbroken apps, please refer to this thread so that not everything gets repeated again! ;)
