    Just updated from 4.1 to 5.0.1 using a JB custom ipsw and used OpenBackup to back up all my settings and packages. I didn't see a thread about it here, so I thought I'd give it a shoutout. It worked great! There was a little tweaking that needed to happen after I ran it, due to the differences between iOS 4 and 5 (mostly little LockInfo things), but it still saved me a ton of time!

    Note - I'm not affiliated with the author or anything...I actually have no idea who wrote this tool. Just thought it should get a little publicity. :)

    Hi, I'm thinking of Jailbreaking from 4.1 to 5.01. I created the custom IPSW with redsn0w and will jailbreak with it again which tool did you use to JB?
    Is there a way to backup all your music, apps photos before Jailbreak, and once you download the OpenBackup will it work with 5.0.1 when you want to restore the backup?
    thanks

    Use itunes to backup your music and apps. Photos use iphoto or just manually copy them using image capture.

    This.

    Your custom ipsw should already be jailbroken, no need to run redsn0w again once you've restored using it.

    Looks good. I'll try it out once I'm able to J/B again; hopefully next week.
