My 4s is jb and I want to go to the 5

I know I will lose the cydia apps , but will I be able to get them back for free when ios6 is available?

Is there anything specific that I must do so it will work?

Thanks

You won't be able to jailbreak at first. It might take several months before they have a jailbreak for the iPhone 5, but we won't know till someone hacks it. You should be able to get your apps back for free once developers get a chance to make sure they work on iOS 6/iPhone 5.

Paid applications in Cydia are already saved for your Cydia account. You can reinstall what has already been paid for as long as they work for iOS 6 and iPhone 5 once the time comes.

You can also back up all your Cydia Apps now using pkgbackup or xbackup and then when your new iPhone is able to be jailbroken, you can go to Cydia and simply reinstall from your backup.
