    Can anyone tell me how I can upgrade a jailbroken iPad 4 128gb device from 7.0.4 to 7.0.6 without losing the jailbreak if possible?

    The reason why I ask is because I want to see if upgrading to the latest version will fix a problem I've been having with the device's battery draining while being plugged in and being used.

    You cannot ever update your firmware without losing the JB.
    You have to plug it to itunes and hit restore.
    Then once its done restoring to 7.0.6 you JB again and sync and install your stuff again.

    So basically I'd have to back up everything first in iTunes and via iFunbox then upgrade to 7.0.6 before jailbreaking and syncing?

    I take it that once I've jailbroken the device and synced everything, all the folders and settings will be as they were previously?

    Don't know about the ifunbox part, but yes first backup to iTunes, then restore, after the restore is complete jailbreak the device, after it's jailbroken restore from your backup and all the settings and apps will be as they were.

    Seems like more hassle than it's worth to go from 0.4 to 0.6

    For some people, yes. But I think it would be more of a hassle if you get your credit card info stolen

    apps ran in root are still susceptible to the bug (cydia purchases for example)
