    Yep, the only way to preserve a jailbreak while updating is to use a custom firmware made by pwnage tool. You also lose your unlock if you update to stock firmware as well.

    Ok that's confusing... So my friends phone is currently jailbroken, and she wants it unjailbroken she is on 4.0.1 so if I update will it lose all the jailbroken files? (I want it to)

    Thanks

    Yep, a restore to any firmware will unjailbreak it and wipe it clean

    Yeah, but I'm not restoring I'm upgrading. Dose it have the same effect in removing all the jailbroken files?

    Thanks so much
