How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have a factory unlocked iphone 4 os 4.3.1 (8g4) with 04.10.01 firmware, also jailbroken. Can I update to 5.0 or 6.0 without problems and also keep the jailbreak? Is this a relatively easy process?? Thanks a lot.

I would wait a few days until the new, upcoming jailbreak, evasi0n, releases.

Then, Back up in iTunes- restore to 6.1- jailbreak- and restore your backup. All your Apple stuff will stay, but you will need to manually reinstall your Cydia stuff.
