    I would like to restore my iPhone as I thinkI have a slight problem with it. But its JB at the mo, and I have apps from cydia and installous-is there anyway to back these up?

    Stop using Installous.

    iTunes won't back up your jailbroken apps, so you'll need some other method. I do not know if there is a jailbroken app that lets you do this, but you could always just write them down.

    yea a backup will regain all your notes and apps and what not when you restore.

    you will then have to rejailbreak and redownload the cydia apps again though
