If there is a way, can someone post a link detailing how to update to 1.3 or 1.4 without losing all the apps I've downloaded to 1.2?

As soon as you restore, and you have to restore to upgrade, you will loose your apps. There is no way around it.
Not true, if you have OpenSSH installed you can log into your phone and copy the applications folder which houses all your apps. restore and update through iTunes and then jailbrake again. Install bsd subsystem, openssh and then log back in, copying over the programs you want to have again. Not all are compatible though. Ive done this for many friends. Not trying to come down on you, but try to look into things before you make a blanket statement like that. :p

Yes, I know you can copy everything to your computer, I do it for a backup, I just did not want to confuse the poster. I suppose I should not assume anything.

Is there any benefit to updating to 1.3 or 1.4?
