    Every software release needs to be re-jailbroken.

    Apple provides the iTunes 'update' option BUT this does not work for jb'd phones. This is not recommended unless you know what you're really doing.

    Can anyone tell me if I need to re-jb every time I update? Currently Ip4 on iOS 4.1 jb via green pois0n.

    Or is there an update for the jb that will work to fix the issues on the new iOS if I do the jb before updating the iOS?

    Also do we have to reinstall all the apps each time? I had to dl them again after I went from 4.0 jailbreakme to 4.1 green pois0n, my settings reverted back to how I had them b4 after dl but it was still a pain to respring multiple times.

    Sorry i'm a n00b to the iPhone circle.
    Yes, you will need to re-jailbreak every time you update iOS.
    Without exception.

    You'll need to reinstall any JB apps, anything from Cydia.
    Yes, its a pain.
    Apps you downloaded through the official AppStore may already be there and will not need to be reinstalled.

    Much Thx Raduga & Mes, I figured as much when I updated 2 iOS 4.1 but was hoping the great minds here would tell me there was a cydia app that would save me the work. I learned to make a list of my fav cydia apps so that I could re-dl, if needed. Ok then I'll just deal with it & the waiting game. Have a fantastic weekend everyone

    Oops ... If that's all you wanted, sorry.

    AptBackup and PkgBackup (via Cydia) creates 'lists' of currently installed Cydia apps and assists in reinstalling after a jb.

    4.2 was passed on. When you update, you will go directly to 4.2.1.
