    Apple provides the iTunes 'update' option BUT this does not work for jb'd phones. This is not recommended unless you know what you're really doing.

    Also do we have to reinstall all the apps each time? I had to dl them again after I went from 4.0 jailbreakme to 4.1 green pois0n, my settings reverted back to how I had them b4 after dl but it was still a pain to respring multiple times.

    Sorry i'm a n00b to the iPhone circle.
    Yes, you will need to re-jailbreak every time you update iOS.
    Without exception.

    You'll need to reinstall any JB apps, anything from Cydia.
    Yes, its a pain.
    Apps you downloaded through the official AppStore may already be there and will not need to be reinstalled.

    Much Thx Raduga & Mes, I figured as much when I updated 2 iOS 4.1 but was hoping the great minds here would tell me there was a cydia app that would save me the work. I learned to make a list of my fav cydia apps so that I could re-dl, if needed. Ok then I'll just deal with it & the waiting game. Have a fantastic weekend everyone

    Oops ... If that's all you wanted, sorry.

    AptBackup and PkgBackup (via Cydia) creates 'lists' of currently installed Cydia apps and assists in reinstalling after a jb.

    4.2 was passed on. When you update, you will go directly to 4.2.1.

    4.2 was a beta. 4.2.1 is the public release.
