I saw that there is a semitethered jailbreak for 5.1, I was wondering if it is worth it or now, should I do it or should I not?

Once again 4s loses
This isn't really a loss. When looked at it from a security viewpoint, one can see that the iPhone 4S is the most secure iPhone. While the 4 and older can be compromised very easily and have all of their data pulled without the owner knowing.

Its being worked on.

just keep up with the different blogs out there.
besides me aimlessly using google and this forums site feature, could you maybe throw a few keywords at me to make it easier for me to know which blogs I should be keeping up with?

I follow the iPhone dev team and sites such as mygreatiphone.

Hackers sites such as

http://www.iphonehacks.com/2012/03/ipad-2-ios-5-1-jailbreak.html

Sites such as redsn0w and cydia

They even have Facebook pages you can like and receive info from.

iclarified is a good site too.

I can't understand how they keep on jail breaking these devices. Every update usually plugs all known (to Apple) exploits, so how is it done.

Surely there must come a time when there is nothing left to use?

Is it a case of each update add's new unknown exploits that were not there before?

Much respect goes to the people who spend the time doing this for free.

Not really. Apple failed to close the hole used for the pre-Corona jailbreak of iPad2, so it is still a possibility.

With so much code in the firmware of these iDevices, Apple is just lousy at finding and closing exploits

Well they may be lousy at finding and closing exploits...but they are still really good at not leaving many to start with compared to other operating systems.

Even if there are no exploits with a version of iOS, every time they add features (a new iOS update), it's new code with new possibilities of exploits. At least I think so, I am not sure I totally understand how they jailbreak though.
