    What happens to:

    The apps that were bought?
    The free apps?
    The apps that were installed via appsync?
    The books and movies associated with goodreader (bought) and VLC movie player?

    You will lose apps installed via appsync because when you upgrade from 3.2, you will lose your jailbreak. The jailbreak for the iPad has not been released yet. As for the apps that your purchased, even if the app is free, you still "purchase" the app. If you sync the apps on your iPad with iTunes before you upgrade, then you will be able to put those apps back onto the iPad after the upgrade. Now, I'm sure you are already aware of this but be aware of the fact that the apps that you have may not work the way they are supposed to because iOS 4.2 of course is a beta. Im not too sure about the books and movies associated with goodreader and vlc because i dont use those applications.

    i hope that i helped you out.

    Beta or not if you upgrade your jb3.2 you will lose the apps that you get from cydia . all apps downloaded from itunes appstore will be retain.

    I have gone from jb3.2 to 4.2beta to 4.2beta2. No issues on a 64Gwifi only ipad.
