    I have a jailbroken 4s but was thinking of upgrading to iOS 6 now that I have a jailbroken iPad that satisfies my jail breaking needs.

    What happens if I go to settings -> general -> software update -> install now?

    I've heard in the past that bad things happen and you do a "erase all content and settings" while jailbroken so I am wondering if the same is true of updating to iOS 6 without a computer while jailbroken?

    Nothing will happen. Your phone will restart, the update will fail, and it'd be right back in iOS 5.1.1.

    Thanks Intell =)

    Quick and to the point, exactly what I needed to hear.

    Not sure why you'd want to do it anyway

    It will be a huge downgrade

    I wouldn't say huge downgrade, but it's nothing to crow about either. Especially if you're getting use out of a JB.
