    I have a jailbroken 4.2.1 Now if I want to upgrade to iOS 5, should i just click the update button, or should I do a full restore? With the full restore, do I loose all my saved games(like my achievements in Angry Birds, etc), hence making me start the game all over again?
    I know updating makes me lose my JB, but I really only used it for WiFi Sync and Notifications, and since those are now native, I don't need a JB.

    You need to have a developer register your UDID first. Until you do that you can't use iOS5.

    Wow that was fast. I guess I should have mentioned that this is all future talk. I am not planning on doing it now, but when it comes out for consumers.

    ^^^ You need to be registered with a developer ...

    HOWEVER ...

    Do not use the forums to request to be added to a developer account.

    Ahh ok. Just do a backup then click the update button. Your data will be saved.

    Now hypothetical, lets say I do full restore, then I recover from a backup, does it save all my saved game data? Like will all my levels restart on Angry Birds or whatever other games I have?
