    I've come a blank on this, i just can't remember what happened last year.

    Is it possible to go from a tethered JB without the restore etc. to untethered?
    My conscience tells me that i'd need to restore, but i thought i'd double check.

    This might be a dumb question, but is there currently an untethered jailbreak for official 5.0?

    My guess is no, but the hacks section seems to be poppin' with iOS5 threads so I wasn't sure

    Yes and No.

    The betas have been jailbroken long ago. But today's release has not.

    iOS 5 has been jailbroken already.
    It's still a tethered jailbreak though for the newer 3GS and iPhone 4.
    Older 3GS phones have an untethered jailbreak for iOS5.

    Yes, there is possibility to go from tethered jailbreak to untethered jailbreak. As you were remember, back when 4.2.1 was tethered jailbreak with redsn0w. Greenpois0n came out. All we need to go to run greenpois0n over it and it the untethered jailbreak.

    You said it was the official jailbreak. It obviously is not. That it works using the betas is an entire different thing and a warning should be given. You can't call it what it is not.

    You get your point. Let's see if Redmondpie and iclarified update their tutorial of jailbreaking OS5 with today official release.

    While I appreciate your tutorial it is in no way the official jailbreak. Not until the iPhone Dev Team says so.

    Works on the final release too seeing how the GM and Official release are the same thing.

    redsn0w 0.9.9b3 does provide a tethered jailbreak for iOS 5 final version. I installed the GM last week and am running it with Cydia and biteSMS beta installed right now.

    No untethered JB yet.

    See update #11 here: http://blog.iphone-dev.org/redsn0w-iOS5

    Exactly... GM version number is the same as the released version.

    Only the older 3GS has an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.
