Load Titanium Backup from App Market. Run and back up apps (not system apps).
Using ROM Manager, do a Nandroid backup, which is a copy of your currently working system.
Using ROM Manager, Download Cyanogen Mod 7.1. Check “Google Apps” in the ROM Addons box. Wipe Dalvik cache, but nothing else.
Don’t have to do anything else. All the apps were still there after the reboot.
My phone is noticeably faster, but the proof will be in the usability over the next few days.
