    Default Upgrading to 4.2 on iPad
    I want to upgrade my iPad firmware to 4.2, but I really do not want to lose my Cydia apps and their settings. Is there a way to backup the files and .deb packages installed on my iPad, so i can upgrade to 4.2, then rejailbreak, and have all my apps installed from cydia be the same, as well as their settings?

    Exactly and any purchases you've made on Cydia are stored in your account and you can redownload them when you upgrade.

    redsn0w only gives you a tethered JB for now, hopefully they will iron out the remaining kinks and get an untethered JB out soon

    failing that were waiting on 4.3 to drop publically
