Default [Q] how to go back to stock keeping mine and my wife data?

Hello all!
I know that there is plenty of threads about going back to stock but what I want to know is if there is a way to restore apps and data of a multiuser environment after the rollback and eventually which is the safest way.
Furthermore.. that's a bit ot.. I've not backed up drm keys when I installed cm10.2.. what will happen when I reinstall stock? will I only loose bravia as I've previously read?

thanks!

Theoretically, the best way to keep data would be by flashing the .ftf without any wipes, but that can cause problems, such as misbehavior and force closes (slow downs).

Another option that is more safe in that matter, however might not save all the data, is to create a CWM backup from your current setup, copy the backup files to somewhere, do a fresh install for Sony fw, then installan app called Nandroid Manager, to restore your data.

And, yes, since you didn't backup your TA partition, you won't have Bravia Engine anymore...
