I want to wipe the slate clean update and rejailbreak simply because i have so much crap installed and I have no idea what causes the crashes. Im afraid that just updating and rejailbreaking may not clean up the mess entirely.

Is there a proper way to do this or what?

Restore via iTunes, then set up as new iPhone. Reinstall Cydia apps one at a time, and don't reinstall anything that isn't compatible w. the new firmware, or anything that you don't need.

I use an older Mac that can't run iCloud (haven't updated to Lion), so I'll let someone else chime in here...
