Upgrade To iOS 6 from current 5.1.1 jailbreak
I know that I will lose jailbreak if I upgrade to iOS 6 on my iPhone 4S running 5.1.1.
That being said, what is the recommended procedure for taking the iOS update? Do I just accept an OTA update or is it best to update via iTunes by doing full backup, Restore, then restore data from iTunes backup?
Are there any issues with restoring 5.1.1 data from my current jailbreak state?

They have a pretty detailed list here of exactly what is saved..

I think I figured out a way to just backup my texts to iCloud.. nothing else. If that works, that's the route I'm going.

Hopefully it won't carry over to the iPhone 5, but if it does I'll restore and install all my apps and settings from scratch.

Working out these issues is why I'm in the process of unjailbreaking my 4S right now and updating to iOS 6. I have my iPhone 5 coming on Friday, and since I'll be restoring that from my 4S backup, I want to have it restore from a non-JB backup, so my JB will be gone very soon. A little sad, but I'll live.

I have a iPad 2 running on 5.0.1 and would like to update to iOS 6, but I have a few problems.
My computer crashed about a month ago, so I have no way of accessing iTunes on my computer. I'd like to be able to update OTA, but I hear that you can't if you're jailbroken. Without using a computer to restore my iPad, is there a way to unjailbreak and then update to iOS 6?
I don't care about a backup, because all my apps are on the cloud. With that said, any advice would be great! Thanks!

reset all settings problem - JailbreakQA
Basically, if you do a Erase All Content and Settings you're essentially resetting your phone to a factory condition. Once you do that, the phone will get stuck in a infinite reboot cycle because the iOS file system is re-arranged when a jailbreak is applied. The phone can't find files where they should be and then can't boot.
