    I think the highest jailbreak available is for 5.3 and I'm pretty sure that's a tethered jailbreak.

    Sweet, thanks.

    So looks like the JB updated the thing to 5.3 so now its tethered.. damn it. Anyway to avoid this and downgrade?

    It is jailbroken now and I'm looking at this atv Flash thing.

    Why Update when it works, unless you want a certain feature...
