I currently have a jailbroken iPhone 4 with firmware version 4.1. If I upgrade it to a newer firmware, will I have to reinstall all of my apps (jailbroken and regular)? Thanks for the help.

If you update you won't use app store apps but you will of course lose jailbreak apps. Several tools can back them up for easy restore--I uses PkgBackup but that was about all there was when I bought it.

If you have your shsh files saved you can try to upgrade to 4.3.3fw, this is an untethered jailbreak...any higher, you will be forced into installing a tethered jailbreak,not good.....alternately you can wait till IOS 5.0 is released.
