DoctorEyeSight, do you use Titanium Backup (TiBU)? The Pro version allows you to batch backup ALL your apps and app data. You can even create a zip that installs TiBU to the app drawer from recovery instead of downloading it again from Play. On the other side of the ROM flash, just open TiBu and do a batch restore. In the opinion of many (including me), it's worth far more than the cost
Dang it, I do NOT want to wipe my phone again and flash another ROM... but I just might have to for all this!
