    Nope, you will lose the jailbreak if you update.

    Yes. If you update without backing up you jailbreak applications (with tools other than iTunes), you will lose your jailbreak.

    Nope, wifi is the only way (I believe).

    So how would one go about backing up all the jailbroken stuff?
    I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing, but I want to upgrade from a jailbroken 2.2.1 and keep all my stuff if possible.

    With AptBackup or PkgBackup in Cydia

    Which is better? And will they completely back up everything?
    Sorry for all the questions. I haven't upgraded before and I don't have wifi here, making it a pretty big hassle for me to do all that stuff, so I want to get all the details clear first.

    And once I use one of those apps to back up, I just upgrade using itunes, then jailbreak using blackrain or whatever that was called?

    I use Aptbackup, simply because it's free and it's served me well. The additional features of Pkg don't really appeal to me.
