    When I updated my iPhone to iOS 5 I lost all my jailbroken cydia apps, tweaks and any regular apps I got from being jailbroken.

    I want to update my iPad to iOS 5 and jailbreak now, but I don't want to lose all my data from 4.3 that I have right now. Isn't there a way to make it so I can backup ALL my apps, regardless of them being available due to a jailbreak?

    You can't do them all together, but this tutorial outlines a process to do everything separately - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...des/26399-how-upgrade-your-ios-jailbreak.html
