    Hi! i learned that most of the new games and apps will require 4.0 to run on iphone! i Have a 3G 3.1.3 and i would like to know if theres a way to upgrade to 4.0 wihout removing the jailbreak and without losing what stuff i have already instaled like skins themes etc.

    i dont remember what method my friend used to jailbreak my phone so that might complicate things.
    thanks in advance!

    I think it means they have stored your SHSH file for your device on their server for you. That way, if you accidentally upgrade to a newer OS eventually, you will still be able to downgrade.

    That's just what I think it means. I could be mistaken.

    Yes, you can update to a JBen 4.0 and you will have to reinstall you cydia stuff.

    Here!

    You will want to reinstall cydia apps because not everything you have on it right now will be compatible with 4.0(more then likely).

    use Aptbackup make it a little easier lets you backup yor cydia appa etc. just keep in mind somethings aren't 4.0 compatible so tread carefully. also allot of 3G owners aren't happy with 4.0 performance on there 3g. so so your aware.

    I would strongly recommend against AptBackup. It is very hit-or-miss (it worked only once out of four times I tried it -- once it required a restore), and it will not work if you setup as a new phone. I highly recommend PkgBackup. It's not free, but it is well worth the couple of bucks it costs. And it allows selective restores, syncing and backing up multiple devices. A much better solution.

    Just click "manage" in Cydia, and write everything down that is installed on your phone, and then reinstall these items after your new jailbreak.

    It's a good idea to reinstall this stuff anyway, so that first of all, as others have mentions, you can verify compatibility, but also so you can purge whatever you may no longer need or want.
