If those are what it lists for you, you're fine. You're missing a couple of betas, but that doesn't matter because you can't use the betas without a dev acct anyway. Your phone doesn't do it, neither does iTunes. It's all done on Saurik's server automatically, starting from the day you saved your first blob.

It's all automatic, but to be safe I'd run TU every time an iOS update is released, that way you have a local copy on your hard drive in addition to saurik's server, it's always good to have more than one copy. Of anything.

Agreed on the TU. I expect sometime in the not too distant future, Apple would figure out how to keep Saurik from retrieving blobs.

They'd have to completely change the way their authentication works, which would then just be hacked by Saurik or someone else anyway. It would be a waste of resources for them. The number of jailbreakers compared to total sales is probably very low.
