    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Pod2g has announced that the untethered jailbreak of iOS 5.1.1 is just days away from release.

    Thanks to awesome work of @planetbeing and @pimskeks, we're near ready for a release. Now it's a matter of days.

    Here is the list of devices that are known to work for sure:
    ● iPhone 3Gs
    ● iPhone 4
    ● iPhone 4 CDMA
    ● iPhone 4S
    ● iPad 1
    ● iPad 2 Wifi
    ● iPad 2 GSM
    ● iPad 2 CDMA
    ● iPad 3 Wifi
    ● iPad 3 CDMA
    ● iPod 3G
    ● iPod 4G

    Here is the list of devices that won't be supported:
    ● AppleTV 3

    Remains to test (but that should work):
    ● iPad 2 Wifi, R2
    ● iPad 3 Global
    ● AppleTV 2

    So the answer is yes you can safely update to 5.1.1

    The general rule of thumb is to wait until the actual release, to make sure it is 100%, without a doubt, cross platform compatable with 5.1.1

    But, the odds are certainly in your favor that you'll be safe.

    Still, if the JB release is 48 or so hours away, why not wait on the upgrade?
