    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?

    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.

    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.

    downgraded

    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.
