    I have a Jailbroken iPad 3 and I really wish to upgrade it to iOS 6.
    Can I upgrade it without restoring. I have a lot of important work on my iPad and can't afford to loose it. Beside that I have a lot of apps and games.

    I can't give you a 100% guarantee, but - if you do a backup of the iPad, then restore it to iOS 6, you should be able to "restore from backup" (when prompted by iTunes). You won't lose data, to include game status/progression.

    Make the backup just before restoring and then it should be just as you had it - but running iOS 6.

    You will loose any and all jailbreak apps, games, & data!

    Thanks a lot for your reply. Will this also preserve all jailbroken apps and games?

    No. All your Cydia tweaks and such will be gone. You can, however, re-download them from Cydia after a jail break for iOS 6 has been found (and you decide to re-jail break). Cydia is like the App Store in that regard - once you pay for a tweak or app, it's yours to download again and again.

    Hope this helps.

    You can also consider using PKGBackup before you restore. This will create a backup of all your jailbreak app and tweaks settings / data. We have a tutorial here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...p-safeguard-your-jailbreak-apps-settings.html

    That way, once the IOS6 jailbreak is released, you will be able to easily restore apps, tweaks, and settings from your current configuration (selectively if necessary).

    So there's not a jailbroken iOS 6 at the moment?
