there is no way of upgrading to a later version. what would happen if I made an itunes account and tried upgrading.

You would have to restore your phone via iTunes on computer. This is the only way to upgrade a jailbroken iDevice to the latest version. -T0XicGreif3r

I would recommend you backup your Cydia tweaks and sources with "OpenBackup"

You would have to rejailbreak it, but it would be tethered.

Don't use OpenBackup now that I think about it. But, if you are fine with a tethered jailbreak (May be untethered soon) then restore via iTunes and follow this guide: http://jailbreakwiki...thered_iPhone_4

Untethered is probably what you have. You can reboot your phone with jailbreak no problem. A tethered jailbreak is when you have to "re-jailbreak" your phone every time it reboots. You still keep all your apps and tweaks, but you must boot tethered from your computer every time your phone reboots.

No you can't, sorry. But the untether should be out for iPhone 4 any week now. I'll notify you when it's out. Btw iOS 7.1 (what you will upgrade to) improves performance for iPhone 4 :)
Cheers!

dont forget to download the semi tethered package once upgraded so just in case your phone goes off away from a computer, you can turn it back on again and use it.

hi people. ive been advised that the new jail break would be tethered. but there are places stating i can get an untethered jailbreak on this site. also posts show that there are other versions less than the 7. like 6 etc. could i upgrade to that?

Just upgrade. There is no untethered for 7.1. Only 7.0.x and 6.x.x. Not 7.1. You probably misunderstood iOS 7 jailbreak as 7.1 jailbreak. If you find an untethered jailbreak for 7.1 on the Internet, it is a lie. I will tell you as soon as a 7.1 untether comes out. -T0XicGreif3r
