Now that iOS 5 is out, all of you with a jailbroken iPhone 4, will you update or stick to the jailbroken version you're on?

I was hoping to save my baseband and use pkgbackup and do a fresh install of ios5 with the option of switching back if i dont like it. Is that possible at this point? (I am on 4.3.3 and 4.10.01)

Are we in denial? I don't see many things existing in Cydia that iOS5 has.

Guess that I will be waiting for a untethered jailbreak when Dev Team comes out with it.

Really like some of the features on ios 5 (particularly being able to stream music from my home computer, thanks VERIZON & APPLE for shafting me on 4.3), but going to miss Noki dearly.

Hope untethered jb is forthcoming soon.

Thinking about taking my phone to ios 5 and leaving ipad on 4.3

Already have. Seeing as there will likely be an iOS5 jailbreak released soon anyways.

I installed the GM when it came out and have a tethered jailbreak currently. I know I can go back to 4.3.3 if I wanted because I do have the SHSHs saved. I won't update my iPad 2 until the jailbreak is out.

I'll wait for the untethered jailbreak. It is tempting though :rolleyes:

Might follow your route and update my iPad. Still hesitant though.

Do I need to restore before I update or can I just update?

I can't. No way to scrobble to last.fm without jail breaking :(

Ive read numerous threads reporting that ios5 will run faster on an ip4.

I need this because of how poorly my current build is running JB

Hmm I'll update on my virgin iPad 2 that has no jailbreak because it is factory 4.3.5 and see how ios5 is

Then if I like it I'll get ios5 for my ip4 my jb ip4 has features that I really don't want to let go. Mostly trying out jb apps before I buy them but hey almost all my apps are paid for so I probably won't miss jb so much.

I'll be getting ip4s on Friday launch so maybe I can wait until then?

I'll download iOS5 and jailbreak it as soon as people stop getting errors when they upgrade.

I already have a tethered jailbreak (4.3.5 :mad:), so I don't mind being tethered with iOS5. I've only run into a problem where my phone died twice, so tethered doesn't bother me.

I can't survive without biteSMS.

I will upgrade. I figure what I use jailbreak for the most is SBSettings and Lockinfo, and while I will jailbreak once an untethered is available, I want to try going vanilla for a while, just to get a taste for the difference (I've hardly ever used a non-jailbroken phone). There are small stuff that's in the nice to have category, such as Infinifolders, TetherMe, and the odd app preview through Installous, but I can go without all of those for a while. I hope.

Judging from the reports of the speed differential, I think that I will give it a try.

The two things I'll miss the most are MyWi On Demand and iBlacklist.

Then I'll decide if it's worth tethered jailbreak to get those things.

----------

anyone?

I don't have many Cydia applications. But it has been my experience that the biggest and best of them, especially the ones most closely associated with Cydia, will preserve your license.

iBlacklist and MyWI I've never had to go to any trouble getting them to work again.
