mike can u exactly describe how u managed to update jailbreak end doesn't lose everything please?
You can't go directly from a jail broken iOS to a jail broken iOS. You have to go jail broken > upgrade to stock > jail break new iOS.
If you make a backup in iTunes before you upgrade to the stock iOS, you can restore that backup AFTER you jail break. We don't recommend using a jail break tweak for backups, mainly because tweaks may not work properly on the new iOS. So, for tweaks, we recommend you put them on one at a time to make sure they work. I recommend writing a list of the Cydia tweaks you have installed now - that way you'll know what ones to go back and get after you re-jail break.
Here are the steps I am going to follow when the jail break is released:
1) Save a backup in iTunes
2) Upgrade my iPad 3 to iOS 6.1 (restoring as NEW, not from backup)
3) Perform the jail break and log in to Cydia
4) "Restore from backup" (in iTunes - this will put my apps, data, settings, etc. back on the iPad)
5) One at a time - put my Cydia tweaks back on the iPad (that were there on iOS 5.1.1)
6) Enjoy my newly jail broken iPad on iOS 6.1!
Hopefully, this helps.
thanks, i will do so
But, isn't the jailbreak already released?
