If I'm on 5.0.1 jailbroken but only have 5.1 & 5.1.1 blobs, will it be beneficial to upgrade now? Will the red snow downgrade tool still enable us on 5.1.1 to downgrade back to it in the future if we have to update due to a crash?

The redsn0w tool will apparently only allow you to downgrade in the future if you stay on 5.0.1. This is going to make a lot of people debate whether they should update to the newest firmware or stay on the older (5.0.1) firmware. 5.1.1 really doesn't add any new features and it will be handy to be able to restore your device anytime to a jailbreak-able firmware whenever if you can downgrade back to 5.0.1. I personally wouldn't upgrade unless I had too.

What if I am on 5.1? Do you think I should upgrade to 5.1.1?
