Hey there!

I read the article about upgrading vom 4.1. to 4.2.1. I just have to isntall the latest FW and then jailbreak. I heard that cracked apps will not be lost and they will work. But Cydia software needs to be reinstalled (Meaning stuff like SBSettings will have to be installed again). Is it somehow possible to get a list of this software? It would simplify the update process a lot.

there is a cydia tool called APTBackUp .. it takes a copy of all your cydia apps/tweaks and restores it once you install cydia again.. use TinyUmbrella to upgrade to iOS 4.2.1
