    That is until a JB is released of course, is it safe to upgrade?

    As a general rule always stay on your current iOS until a JB is released.

    What would bring you an update now?

    From pod2g the dev who is working on the JB:

    "pod2g @pod2g
    OK, tested on an iPad 3,1 running 5.1.1. Jailbroken untethered. :) No issue."

    It looks like it will also be available for 5.1.1, but do save your SHSH's for 5.1!! If you ever have to downgrade to 5.1 you'll need those.

    Wait, I thought that on the A5, saving your blobs and downgrading doesn't work.

    tested myself the new tool (redsnow), just upgraded my ipad 3 to 5.1.1 then downgraded back to 5.1 without any problems (also tried with my 4s). Of course you need shsh in order to do that.

    Interesting. I (incorrectly) assumed it needed a JB to work. Learn something new every day. :)

    I'm a noob to jb, so I apologize for the foolish questions...
    If you aren't planning to upgrade, we don't need to save the shsh file? Or should I do it for general backup purposes?

    This update contains improvements and bug fixes, including:
    Improves reliability of using HDR option for photos taken using the Lock Screen shortcut
    Addresses bugs that could prevent the new iPad from switching between 2G and 3G networks
    Fixes bugs that affected AirPlay video playback in some circumstances
    Improved reliability for syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading List
    Fixes an issue where 'Unable to purchase' alert could be displayed after successful purchase

    Copy and pasted from apple.

    Even though pod2g has said that the jb will work on all iPads on 5.1.1, I won't be updating to that firmware until the jailbreak is out.

    What if Apple releases 5.1.2 and stops signing off on 5.1.1 the very same day and you miss the boat on the jailbreak?

    New TU is out which safes 5.1.1 SHSH's
    So you can upgrade at will if you have SHSH's for it, even if apple releases 5.1.2.
