    I am asking this because the new iPhone 4.0 OS is coming out soon.

    And it would be a waste of time to download them if i gotta do it again after the upgrade.

    Turn around...
    Enable sync in Installous, it will sync the applications with iTunes and then use Appbackup (look it up in Cydia) to backup savegame data, read instructions on how to SSH the backup to your PC then SSH it back to your iPhone after the update.

    You may also need to have AppSync installed for it to work. My reasoning is that I think the option in Installous requires AppSync to work, but I'm not positive.

    I believe this is only true for *snip can directly sync without AppSync.

    no need, theres a system app on cydia (one of the default repositories iirc) which patches the installd file

    Nice fail, AppSync lets you actually SYNC the CRACKED apps as you normally can't do it, AppBackup backs up the Apps SAVE DATA so when they are put back on your iPod Touch you can continue on games where you left off.
