    I'm really having a hard time deciding whether I want to revert my iPad 2 to 4.3.3 for the jailbreak or stay with iOS 5 betas. If I reverted I think I would really miss features like wireless syncing and system wide dictionary (I use it for studying Japanese). Thoughts?

    damn!! it's worth it, now my speedy iPad feels much much faster.

    Still debating. Can't really think of a reason to Jailbreak my iPad ATM. It's been so long since I had my last (jailbroken) iPad I can't remember what I did. A lot of concerns I had came with the OS updates (Brightness slider, &c.)

    I was having the same problem and decided to try downgrading and go with the jailbreak. If I don't like having the jailbreak, restoring back to the backup will be simple.

    I'll also get to use netflix on my ipad again.

    Can't you just use Netflix already ?
    Am I missing someone here ? :)

    Question, can I just install ios5 on my phone even if I don't have a developer account? Like just install from itunes after I have downloaded the firmware file?

    I think I would rather do this than JB my iphone4.

    Just JB's my Ipad2, super quick and easy.

    Well, I went with the downgrade but feel OK about it for the time being. Can finally install MyWi on demand so I don't have to pull my iPhone out of my pocket every time I want to connect. Miss dictionary, tabbed browsing, and wireless synching but can deal until fall release I guess.

    Real pro work by Comex on this JB by the way... very smooth and installed in under a minute. No bugs so far.
