I'm sorry if this has been covered but I could not find a clear answer.

If my phone is jb and then later I want to update to a new version what is the process? Would I have to restore to factory before updating? Or just update and then do a new jb?

Thanks for your help.

Backup your jailbreak apps, restore as new, upgrade, re-jailbreak, re-install jailbreak apps.

what'll happen if i just update my iPhone? without restoring, just backup and update?
(i'm currently downloading the iOS 4.0.1 update)

Also had another noob question...Is there anything that I have to do before the jb (on iPhone4)? Or when I run the jailbreak, does it automatically save the blobs (i think)?
