Thread: Upgrading to 4.2

  1. #1
    Default Upgrading to 4.2
    Hi my jailbroken iPhone 4 is currently still in firmware 4.0. My question is when 4.2 comes out, should I choose the option to "update" or "restore"? The reason I'm asking is if I choose update, will there be any problem since my iPhone is jailbroken? Will I just lose all my jailbroken apps if I choose update and keep all my settings (SMS, bookmarks, contacts,etc)? I'm thinking I should choose restore but I'm trying to avoid backing up everything manually through SSH. I'm hoping that if I choose update I can keep all my settings and I'll just have to rejailbreak to 4.2 without needing to restore my settings. Please advice. Thanks.

    Although , we recommend a restore, you can do an update , your iphone will be unjailbroken and rejailbreak again. If you are having problems after the jailbreak, then you might have to do a restore.
