Will updating iPhone 4 to 5.1 remove my jailbreak?

Basically the gripe is I have an iPhone 4 that now won't read any SIM card, but I have extended cover until October and seeing the Genius Bar tomorrow.

I had a tethered 5.0 jailbreak and couldn't remove it as both "update and restore" buttons in iTunes were greyed out.

So, I used redsnow and tempted to use a 4.3.3 IPSW, which of course didn't work, but in iTunes, it doesn't see any iOS on my phone (blank) and NOW lets me restore.

When I press "restore" it asks me to update to 5.1. Now I know jailbreakers have been refrained from doing this, but I need to take my iPhone tomorrow with no jailbreak hoping to get it replaced or fixed.

Will updating to 5.1 remove the jailbreak altogether? (Which is what I need)
