    negative. as of right now, we don't have a downgrade option as shsh blobs don't work in 5.x

    but def make sure you save your shsh blob on cydia ofcourse...

    No. Apple fixed the replay attack. As further proof that they don't mind jailbreaking, it took them two years to fix one of the most obvious vulnerabilities that any comp-sci freshman should know about.

    I'm sad too. :(

    The bigger problem is that once Apple releases 5.1 we will be stranded. If we encounter a problem with our jb, it will be impossible for us to restore and rejailbreak.

    im pretty sure (hoping) the devs planned for this, and will address when the time arises.

    Save your blobs in the meantime............. I feel like I ready somewhere that tiny umbrella was working on a tweak that allowed you to install/ restore without the need of iTunes.................. Not too sure about where the source was but that what I remember.
