    I have a iPhone 4 JB on 4.2.1 I want to upgrade to the latest firmware and JB it, but a little hesitant that I might loose all my settings and hacked apps like Tomom, games...etc..

    What's the best way to do this and keep everything as is??

    Thanks.

    write down all the packages you have installed in cydia

    make a backup in itunes

    update to 4.3.2

    jailbreak

    re-install all cydia packages

    restore backup

    You joined MR in 2008 but you don't know the rules?

    What?

    That's a little ironic, posting in a forum called "iphone HACKS" isn't it? This forum is full of piracy, get off your high horse.

    Everyone else, Thanks! Will try those.

    Without getting into the debate about piracy or not, hacks =/= pirated apps. Hacks can be anything about jailbreaking, tweaks, customizations, etc.

    Hacking does not imply any sort of illegal activity, however cracking like what is done to pirate iOS apps is an illegal activity and kind of a despicable one given how reasonably priced iOS apps are.

    Hmm, I always thought that when you restored a backup it would remove the jailbreak.

    Guess I learned something new...

    If you right click and select "restore from backup" it will not remove the jailbreak.

    If you click the "restore button" then it will rewrite the IPSW and restore everything.

    In fact, when I did my wife's iphone last weekend, the restore even kept the jailbreak app settings (such as lockinfo layout).
