    Go here to download for Mac, PC, and Linux, if you are tethered jailbroken (A4 and lower devices) use cydia to untether with rocky corona

    I'm currently untethered on 5.0.1. If I update to 5.1.1 official before doing this (which is obviously required), what exactly would I lose? I have several Cydia apps and extensions, as well as a few cracked apps. Mainly concerned about the cracked apps and their respective saves.

    You lose anything installed through Cydia and their settings. You MAY lose the cracked apps, but their saves should remain. I say may because in the instructions it says you should do a backup and full format, but if you do that you can't copy the cracked apps back.

    Cracked apps should restore back along with their saves after the jailbreak, but I've had it fail and mess up before. I suggest using DataDeposiit from Cydia to backup your save files to Dropbox, just to be safe.
    Most Cydia tweaks' settings will be saved, but you will have to re install the tweak itself.

    Cool. Just realized I left my sync cable at home, so I'll have to try this tomorrow.

    Hey, cool. The only thing this needs is some obligatory Thin Lizzy and we're all set.

    Gave up jailbreaking when I took like a whole day to undo it before selling my iPhone 4.

    I'm fine behind bars on my iPhone 4S. Going to give this a miss.

    I'm guessing you have to install apps yourself

    Ehm you need appsync. (download via Cydia)

    There's a program for iPad where you can download any app free of charge.(I can't mention it for legal issues.) Search on youtube for:

    How to get free apps on an ipad

    then select the video which says something about free apps for iPod, iPhone and iPad

    'How to get free apps on (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch) on Firmware 5.0+'

    don't have IOS 5.0+ don't worry it can also be installed on lower firmwares. Shoot me a message if you have an questions.

    If you don't want this, install appsync for your firmware, then you can install any app from your PC.
