    Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade a jailbroken iOS 4.0 iphone 3g to a jailbroken ios 4.2 without having to reinstall all the jailbroken apps?

    Unfortunately, there isn't a way, however, there is a way to make it easier:

    Download PKG backup from Cydia and it will make a list of all your jailbreak apps. When you re-jailbreak, download it again and it will recover and automatically download it all for you*

    Caveat: it doesn't work with custom repos (like if you use cracked apps etc) so so you should make a list of that manually so you an reinstall. SHouldn't be too much
