SAP BO Upgradation from 4.1 SP 3 to 4.2 SP4 on the same enviorenment

I want to upgrade from 4.1 SP3 to 4.2 SP4 on the same environment.

Also want to upgrade BODS from 4.2 SP3 to 4.2 SP 9 because of comparability with BI Platform 4.2 sp4.

So , i'll take back up of Connections, Universe and Reports.

a. Do i need to uninstall existing BO 4.1 SP3 Before to start with Upgradation and Do i need to use existing Port no. (Only CMS Port or All)

b. Which services i need to stop while up gradation and While taking CMS and Audit database backup?

c. Please suggest me what precautions and Procedure i need to follow?

I have got the following link but apart from this link if any would be helpful for me.

    First you need to take backup of CMS and FRS input/output folders.also in case of any custom configuration at server like update in any tomcat folder files than take a backup as after backup you need to copy again these.

    You should not uninstall your current version.upgrade installer is goin to run on existing installaed version.upgrade is bit simple with straightforward steps I believe.ports are going to be same.
