    I did a search and couldn't find the answer so apologizes if this has been discussed 1000's of times.

    I have an iPad 3 running 5.1.1 and i'm considering JB so I can keep it on iOS 5. My reason is that it runs great on iOS 5, no keyboard lag, no stuttering animations etc.

    Are there any security issues with that JB/OS seeing that it's considered an out of date OS? Is it easy to JB? Can I JB and jump back and forth if a JB release is available i.e. 5.1.1 --> 6.1.3 -> 7.0.3 -> 5.1.1?

    I realize there probably isn't a JB release for iOS 7, just asking a hypothetical. :)

    No, you just can't jump from version to version. Once you upgrade, you can not downgrade

    iOS 5.1.1 can be easily jailbroken using absinthe v2.0.4

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Your only options are you either stay at 5.1.1 and JB your ipad 3 or go up to the latest ios 7 and stay stock and wait for a JB.
    You cannot go up to ios 6 and you cannot go up and down at will.
    Once you upgrade you cannot downgrade to anything but the latest ios firmware version out.
