I have an iphone 3gs currently jailbroke with redsnow on 3.1.3 with , but getting annoyed with good games/apps requiring 4.1 or above...is there anyway i can upgrade to 4.whatever it is these days, but keep the jailbroken features i have now (like fonts/themes/apps etc.)? And does my music/videos stay as well if i upgrade?

if you update you will need to jailbreak with the latest redsnow, this is a tethered jailbreak at the moment meaning if the phone needs rebooting or the power dies u have to run redsnow again, no good if your away from a charger or ure pc, but fine for day to day use. regarding your music/videos they should synch back once youve upgraded!

Thanks...but is there anyway I can upgrade to 4.whatever it is now but keep my winterboard theme's and fonts etc...without having to download them again.

Open Cydia and see what Shsh files you have saved

Depending on what you have saved you can upgrade to whatever you want.

4.1 would probably be best

yo will have to re download them, upgrading removes all cydia installs and in fact everything other than what itunes backs up

HI

davidn84 do not update to 4.2.1 ( the latest as it is a tethered jailbreak )

The best thing to do is make sure your hashs have been saved in cydia (either through cydia or tiny umbrella). I personally think its too late to save the hashes now for 4.1 as apple have stopped signing it.

If they have been saved previously then put iphone in DFU mode and go ahead and shift restore from itunes to 4.1 (download firmware from http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/). Do not forget to add saurik servers ip (74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com) to the host file and hash out apples ip

Use limera1n or Greenpois0n to jailbreak. Then re-download whatever you need (themes etc). Music can be backed up and resynced using itunes

I can cope with a tethered jailbreak so not too bothered about that, i just cant be bothered finding and downloading my themes and fonts etc. I've got things like poof and kirikae as well which i'd happily download but ideally wanna keep them how they are now.

I did find something earlier, something called aptbackup...which lets you restore your cydia apps, then backup through itunes, upgrade to latest firmware, re-jailbreak the phone, and then download aptbackup and restore from there...anyone done this before?

tethered means you have to plug it in and boot with redsn0w just to get it to boot, if you ever had to reboot or turn off, or say your battery runs out, well.. lets hope u have a pc in your pocket too

I know what tethered means...i also know not to let me phone die (its a phone which i need to phone people so i keep it charged up) and the only time it gets reboot is if i'm at home using wi-fi to do any cydia updates, home being where I have a PC (i keep it at home as it wont fit in my pocket, plus I dont have a power supply with me when i'm outside). But thanks anyway!
