    What I'd do is to manually backup all the themes using SSH:

    1. SSH to your iPod (assuming you have Mac,) by using Cyberduck. Any other App should work.
    2. Navigate to /Library/Themes
    3. Copy all the files.
    4. After upgrading, Jailbreak your iPod, then SSH (install OpenSSH,) and Copy and Paste your themes.

    For other settings:
    Download PkgBackup or Chronus. Give them a try.

    There is a Cydia app called PkgBackup which is supposed to do what you want but I haven't used it yet. Unfortunately it costs $4.99.
