    Hey all...


    I am new to IP4 JB and have a few questions. I have used jailbreakme.com and successfully JB my 4.01 IP4.

    1. Post JB can I still use the Apple App Store?
    2. If so, can I still plug in my IP4 to my PC and back it up for Apple App Store backups, contacts, mail. settings etc.
    3. For apps I buy on Cydia - how do I backup those apps?

    Are there any other links for good beginner guides for this all...

    THANKS

    Hey all

    Thanks for your help. The pre and post guide was very useful... a few more questions to those with far more knowledge. I have not yet JB as I had a few more questions...

    1A. When I download apps on Cydia - what do you guys use to back them up?
    1B. Do users have a Cydia account? If so, how do I view mine?
    2. If I am currently on 4.01 - post JB can I update to FW 4.1 whilst staying Jailbroken?
    3. To confirm post JB that I can still sync with Itunes correct?
    4. Any others things to do before and just after I jailbreak?

    Thanks in advance...

    1A. Use can either use PkgBackUp or AppBackUp

    1B. Yes. Once you buy an app for the first time you create an account.

    2. If you want to upgrade to 4.1 you'd have to use PwnageTool to create a custom ipsw.

    3. Syncing with iTunes is safe. Just don't update or restore your iPhone or you'll lose the jailbreak.

    4. Nothing much

    And if you don't use PwnageTool, then you do have to lose your JB temporarily to update to official Apple version update, then re-JB once you know its safe.

    No problem. And don't forget to save the SHSH signatures when you jailbreak. You can either click "Make My Life Easier" in Cydia or use TinyUmbrella.

    The SHSH signatures are used to downgrade or restore when Apple stops signing that iOS.

    This will give you a better insight on the SHSH signatures http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=SHSH

    When your iPhone is connected, open TinyUmbrella and click "Save SHSH".
