Flashing your operating system will delete all data and programs!  (It's 
as if you just unboxed the device, brand new.) So, I'd recommend the Red 
Pill method.  To back up your data, you need to back up the hidden 
directory /home/user/.gpe/ - I'm not sure if the backup and restore app 
now handles this directory properly.
