    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?

    sticking to my jailbreak for now

    I will update my jailbroken iPod Touch tho

    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)

    theres nothing in ios 5 that is better than the existing JB
  5. macrumors 6502


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

    Not yet...waiting for the Dev Team update so I can keep the unlock

    you guys want to hear something REALLY funny? I bought my iphone 4 on launch day and jailbroke the next day and i just went into general/about/ and my version is still 4.0.1 (8A306)


    yeah ill wait for the jailbreak. hahaha. I'm such a loser

    how exactly do i preserve my jailbroken apps and **** for when the dev team has a ios5 cracked?

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

    My JB phone still does more things & things better than ios5, so no thx
  12. macrumors 68000

    Not yet! ;)

    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
  14. macrumors regular

    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.
  16. macrumors 6502

    Gonna wait till untethered on iOS 5. :)
  17. macrumors 603


    I'll wait for the untethered jailbreak. It is tempting though :rolleyes:
  18. macrumors 65816

    Tempting? It is downright difficult!! lol.
  19. macrumors 68040


    Same here. Updating as we speak.
  20. macrumors 68040


    I'll wait for untethered. I updated my ipad instead.
  21. macrumors member

    Might follow your route and update my iPad. Still hesitant though.
  22. macrumors 68040

    Mad Mac Maniac

    Do I need to restore before I update or can I just update?
  23. macrumors 6502a


    I can't. No way to scrobble to last.fm without jail breaking :(
  24. macrumors 601

    I did as soon as the GM was out.
  25. macrumors 6502

    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
