    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?

    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
