    Hi, I have a limera1n Ipad 3.x JB, tons of apps (like most people), and would like to prepare for the upcoming 4.2.1 untethered JB release.

    Is there a way to somehow backup some apps at least, then upgrade the FW, then JB, then restore the said apps?

    Or is it a matter of wiping the whole thing clean and starting from scratch?

    Thank you.

    Check out "PkgBackup" on the Cydia site. It makes a list of all your jailbroken app from Cydia and stores the list in your contacts or DropBox. Then when you re-install Cydia, the first thing you download is "PkgBackup" and launch it, tell it to restore and it will re-download all your Cydia apps to your device.
