    I have a 4th gen iPod touch. It's currently jailbroken on iOS 4.3.3. I only really use it for games, music, and web. I want to update it to iOS 5 but I don't know if it's worth it. I want to re-jailbreak it if it's possible. And I defiantly don't want to compromise my iPods speed at all.

    Upgrade to 5.0.1

    Untethered jailbreak is available using the latest version of redsn0w

    There are no known speed compromises with jailbreaking.

    I have the iPod touch on 5.0.1 and I just unjailbroke it. The speed itself on ios 5 with the a4 is already kind of slow, and jailbreaking it just makes it worse. I restored back to ios 5.0.1, and it is borderline slow. I only use it for music and occasionally Facebook, but other then that nothing. So in short, I would recommend updating to iOS 5 but not jailbreaking.
