    You will havetoo restore and that will require re-jailbreaking. As far as stolen apps... That's not something to be discussed here.

    I didn't say stolen apps, I said apps that aren't in the itunes store - like backgrounder. So I can't just install 4.2 on top of 3.2jb?

    I'm not 100% but I'm pretty sure iTunes will error out if you try.

    That's not what others in this forum have said. It sounds like you can just install on top if you are okay with losing the jailbreak.

    There is a cydia app that helps alot with this. AptBackup

    From the site:
    Backup and restore your apps from Cydia. The way this works is it makes a list of your installed apps and puts that list in a location that is under iTunes backup. When you sync with iTunes, that list is stored. After you restore your iPhone in iTunes, you install aptbackup from Cydia, run it, and hit restore, and it will automatically reinstall
    all your apps in your list.
    Sorry no link I need 3 posts here to post a link sorry

    That's what I was saying. You can install it over it. I guess I misunderstood and thought you where thinking you would still have the jailbreak after installing 4.2
