There is nothing special to upgrading when jailbroken or not. You must use the official upgrade path which means losing unlock and jailbreak, and then re-jailbreak and re-unlock if you want and if it is possible with the new firmware. So...

  1. Plug it in
  2. Follow the prompts in iTunes
  • Is it possible with the new firmware? I thought there was something special that you had to do. Commented Jan 18, 2011 at 1:49
