I have a adb full backup, and I am in the process of dumping the stock recovery partition before loading TWRP (to make a backup there).. invisibleK posted an awesome table showing where eveything was, but my question is... if I wanted to make a full backup (user data included) that I can flash via ODIN, which partitions should I include? I know system, recovery and boot... but the guide I have also mentions three others (cache, dbdata and data) that aren't listed in the table.

I was going to be a little OCD and make an image for system, recovery and boot, one that has all three, and then one that has all three AND all my user data (essentially a full backup). Yes, I know, its a bit much. But I got myself into a hot mess when I tried to get this thing from ICS to JB.. and I am trying to cover all my bases this time. :)

I'm learning on the fly here, so any help/insight would be appreciated.

Here is the partition map (bolded the ones I know I need to dump):
