    Hello

    Am still on 4.2.1 and am startin to notice requirements for apps need to be 4.3 etc.

    What would you do to update if you were me?

    I want to remain jailbroken and not lose j/b apps already installed if possible.

    Pls advise if possible step by step..

    Cheers

    Much appreciated

    What is your situation regards SHSH Blobs?
    When you open Cydia, what does the top line of the home page, starting with SHSH: say?
    Let me know, and I'll give you some advice.

    Super news for you.!
    Cydia has your blobs saved...

    (you could do a restore to 4.3.3 , using the ipsw links on the sticky thread).
    (to use the saved 4.3.3 blobs, 1. you can either use tiny umbrella OR 2. just edit the hosts file to point to cydia server)

    For a detailed explanation there are quite a few threads which will help you step by step!

    I don't understand what you mean when you say... 'restore to 4.3.3'

    Ive never been on 4.3.3, yet i can restore to it?

    Cheers

    OK, so as was stated, it is really good news that you have your blobs. You are going to have to download them from Cydia using Tinyumbrella and then upgrade your jailbreak.

    To get your blobs, follow this post I wrote up to step 5
    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hack...-i-without-shsh-blobs-saved-b.html#post276329

    Then try this...

    I wrote a complete guide to upgrading your jailbreak step by step here...

    If you want to save all your apps, settings, etc, as you stated you will need to invest in PkgBackup. It is well worth the price in my opinion.

    Hope that helps.
