    Yes it's 5.0.1 only, but you can still tethered jailbreak on 5.0.1, just as you can on 5.0. That's what I've done :)

    Can i directly just updated it? Or do i need to unjailbreak?
    I'm at 4.2.1 going straight to 5.0.1

    Lol, sorry thought i'd post my question here cuz its somewhat related?

    I too wanted to get to 5.0.0 :(

    When you upgrade using iTunes, you will lose your jailbreak (unless you need to preserve baseband which will require using Sn0wbreeze which incorporates the re-JB into the custom IPSW).

    Should i restore first before updating? Or should i just press update right away.

    I'm worried if i update right away with jailbroken phone, errors may occur.

    You should sync/backup all your stuff in iTunes first as it will need to be restored back
    If you have errors now, choose set up as new and do not restore your settings back
