Follow the check list below if you already have your iPhone jailbroken: 

1. If you have Cycorder installed make sure to copy all of the videos from your iPhone to your computer.

Videos are located on your iphone under mobile user in /mobile/Media/Videos.

After back-up, copy /mobile/library/AppBackup folder to your computer.

6. Sync your iPhone with iTunes for the last time.
