    Sadly, I'm having an old person moment, and I'm only 26...

    I've got an iPhone 4 jailbroken on 4.3.1; if I wanted to update to 4.3.3 do i HAVE TO restore to the new firmware, then rejailbreak? (ie formatting my phone, having to resync and resetup everything)?

    I do not care about unlocking or preserving the baseband.

    Seems extremely tedious to continue to have to JB, restore, JB, restore ever time theres an update. If this is the case, I'm staying with 4.3.1 until the next major revision.

    Thanks in advance! ;)

    You do not have to restore, but you have to update the firmware to 4.3.3 then re-jailbreak, then reinstall all your jb apps (or restore them with an app like pkgbkup).

    I thought if you just did an update through iTunes you permanently lost some 500MB of storage space that was in use by the jailbreak. Is this no longer the case?

    I have no idea if this is true or not. Doesn't bother me even if it is.
