    Hmm... based on Apple's release notes, there's no longer any reference to any security patches with this maintenance release. Will be interesting to see if the hackers will Tweet any news to confirm one way or another.

    Keeping fingers crossed Apple didn't plug any holes, and perhaps an untethered jailbreak for 5.0.1 will be released sooner vs. later...

    +1 I'd really like a battery fix and a JB, not one or the other.

    Dev-team has already told us not to update to 5.01. ;) there are a couple of threads already posted on it. Ot's a pretty big flaw they have to patch it. More then likely surik will patch the hole via Cydia tweek.

    Yes, the way they rushed out this battery bug fix I doubt they went into detail with closing the exploit mentioned before.
    I really hope we can JB untethered this 5.0.1 cause my battery sucks on 5.0

    I would be very surprised if you have not patched the Charlie Miller found vulnerability since they have been aware of it for at least two weeks.

    Damn it, figures :D
    Oh well, still on 5.0 and waiting.
    I pick my JB and all my cool JB packages over better battery life for now.

    Dev team will hopefully just put a cydia package in for battery fix. Charlie millars exploit has also made it so much easier for devs to jb 4s and ipad 2 according to pod2g

    So do I need to wait to update if I'm at 4.3.3 still or should I do the tethered JB on 5.0 while I still can?

    I'd be interested to see if this really addresses the battery issue or if it just changes the sensitivity of the battery meter, like their antenna-gate "fix".

    I think your choice has already been made for you! Reports are coming in that Apple have stopped signing 5.0 already :eek:

    Thanks PhantomZone. I guess I'll keep waiting. Hope they can do a untethered 5.0.1 JB/unlock.

    I'm staying on 5.0 being that I'm waiting for an untethered JB. I don't want to update and a week later the untethered comes out for 5.0 only.

    Is that possible? To release the same battery fix from 5.0.1 to 5.0 in Cydia?Surely that solves everything then.

    What's the advantage of waiting for the untethered? I'm probably going to do the same, because I keep hearing it's the best thing to do. I am just not exactly sure why.

    I just want to make sure AT&T does not find out a I jailbroke and rat me out to apple or something. I want SBSettings, and i have give up my warranty for it? Ouch....no thanks.

    Tethered = Can't reboot unless connected to your computer via USB. So if a crash happens or iPhone reboots by itself, your screwed until you connect to USB.

    Untethered = Can reboot like normal.

    BTW .... AT&T doesn't care about JB, but they do care about data tethering with JB apps.

    The development team said they had several exploits for iOS 5 already so just releasing a jailbreak for an outdated firmware makes little since. I'm sure there will be the small percentage that remains on 5.0, but I myself including many others updated in hopes of a better [battery] life.

    All I know is if MuscleNerd is telling me to stay at 5.0, that's where I'm staying.

    I am not going to update to the 5.0.1 - however I do remember reading that they do have several different exploits so I am hoping that maybe they can come up with an untethered JB for 5.0.1 - I really hope that jail breaking won't come to an end with 5.0!!! Because if so, I might have to leave iPhones all together! I have lasted with my 4s so far ONLY because Siri has filled the gap of no weather and appointments on my lock screen. I can ask Siri for both from the lock screen. But it takes longer :( MISSING Lock Info!
