    This belongs in the "All Things Root" section, however, there are a ton of backup applications that can backup your data and restore them.

    However, beware with these when you are going from ROM to ROM as ROM chef's can move things around and restores won't always go where they are supposed too.

    On the other side, what I used to do when ROM hopping was:

    Backup all my Apps using Astro.
    Backup all my SMS and Call Logs (didn't always do this, but sometimes)
    Sync with Google Account (which restores contacts, email, calendar)
    Restore SMS and Call Logs
    Restore Apps (You can use Astro to check all and install all)

    I like this method rather than having a backup application just push files and try and locate them in the correct place and all that since it would cause less issues.

    This is just my way, and one of many ways to do this, but it't up to you and how you feel.
