    For those of you who had the iPad jailbroken before, and have since updated, do you think the update was worth loosing jailbreak?

    I was thinking this the other day. For me it was worth it as the only things about the jailbreak I miss are RetinaPad + Fullforce and SBSettings. I think it really depends on how much you like/need all the customization. I find iOS5 safari browser much much faster. No more pixelation when scrolling web pages. Also split keyboard works really well for me. Can't recall if there was a Cydia app for this or not though.

    This is for iPad2.

    I would leave your iPad on 4.3.3 ;)

    I have my iPad 2 on 4.3.3 and my 4s on 5.0.1 and every day wish I had a way of jailbreaking my 4s.

    Same here. I was lucky enough to purchase my iPad 2 with 4.3.3.

    Having used my 4s on IOS 5 since release day I would say that I would rather be on 4.x.x and have an option to jailbreak.

    I am still to find the 200+ new features in IOS 5 and have a few issues with battery, email and reception.

    There are just too many thing that JB brings to the platform.

    On the iPhone no way would I want to upgrade to 5.0.1 and lose the JB.

    iPad I gave up the JB. I miss it but it's less of a loss compared to what I would lose with the iphone JB.

    I think you are spot on there. JB brings to much.

    I had to do a restore after Apple stopped signing 5.0 so am on 5.0.1 on my 4s which is nightmare after reading the devs are working on a jailbreak for 5.0 and have said not to update to 5.0.1 :mad:

    I'm pretty sure the jailbreak will work on both 5.0.0 and 5.0.1 since apple is fixing battery life issues and not patching jailbreak holes.

    If you have a look under Kernel you will see Apple have patched the hole found by Charlie Miller in 5.0.

    Hopefully this isn't the only way to JB IOS 5.
