How to fix some mysterious problems.

I am currently running 4.0.1 with untethered jailbreak and I have installed a lot of Cydia-apps. Will all of these apps be gone after I update to 4.2.1 and re-jailbreak with Greenpois0n? I am using AptBackup, but this app can only re-download previously installed applications. Will al my preferences be gone after updating?

Yes, all Cydia apps will be reset. You'll have to customize again. Well, at least, that's what happened to my devices.
