How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have a jailbroken iphone 5 on ios 6.1.2. that I'm about to be done using. I have many JB apps, etc, with data in them. Music, recordings, etc from the JB apps.

I have a new iphone 6, which is on 8.0.2 out of the box... I want to know the easiest way to get back setup on the new Iphone 6 with all the stuff I have on my iphone 5?

I know I can backup the iphone 5 in itunes and restore it to the iphone 6. Now, do I leave Cydia, etc. on it before I do this? I don't want to lose all the data in the cydia apps. Will they all come back with the restore? I have many other JB apps with info in them. Just haven't had to go from one JB device to a new device and don't want to loose app data from JB apps. Any help would be great.

And those that say I should remove cydia first, do all the apps delete themselves off my device and the data? I need that data so they come back with the restore. Thanks, just dont' want to mess it up.

LASTLY, the iphone 6 has 8.0.2. If I update it, it's going to want to put 8.4.1 on it, which isn't jailborken yet. Is there a way I can download 8.4.0 and force it to use that firmware so I don't have to wait until a JB is out for 8.4.1???

Don't duplicate questions. !

You've not done this since asking in March?
