    You shouldn't lose your apps unless you restore it.
    iTunes will back up your iPhone so you shouldn't lose anything.

    1st I would never list my email address great way to collect spam,

    there is a stickies at the top that will help youi if you are talking cydia apps then get pkgbackup in cydia or aptbackup I prefer pkgbackup. itunes will restore legit apps. tutorial iclarified.com if this seems short you are probably the 12 one that asked these questions today. ;)

    Different Iphones, firmware versions require different tools to jailbreak them. You should read more about jailbreaking. Also, www.iclarified.com or www.redmondpie.com are sources you should refer to for tutorial on jailbreaking.
