    Ok so i have a jailbroken iPhone 4 on 4.0.1. I want to upgrade to 4.1 and jailbreak it.

    How do i update my phone without losing any of my jailbroken files and apps?

    I remember when i upgraded from a jailbroken 4.0 to 4.0.1 through itunes, it deleted all my cydia files and i had to download everything all over again.. i dont wanna have to go through the same hassle again.

    You can upgrade and keep all normal things, but jailbroken apps will be gone. APT backup in iOS 4 probably doesn't work, but maybe there's a similar program to save all Cydia stuffs.

    Pkgbackup(paid) works just fine. Restores all Cydia apps/repos/settings.

    i tried the pkgbackup before and it saves all the files and what not, but they dont properly install, so in the end you gotta download them again

    This is what I liked about Rock. Your account backed everything up for ya. As far as I know the only method is the pkgbackup mentioned before, otherwise there is the good pen, and paper (write it all down
