    Hi guys,

    I just read this article on Redmond Pie, and it included this sentence:

    Is there anyone else that's quite disappointed with this news? I own a 3GS and have a tethered 5.1 jailbreak, I'd even be happy with an untethered 5.1 JB, but I was really looking forward to running untethered 5.1.1.

    :(

    its starting to look like it, and im going to be ****ed out of sight. Im sitting here with two 5.1 3gs' on new basebands that are locked to Softbank simcards.

    Redsn0w isnt working to get the iPad baseband to work either, it just gets stuck at the second stage and says exploit failed...

    Pissed off

    Why is it so crucial that you have 5.1.1 untethered versus 5.1 untethered? If you want it so bad do it yourself, you honestly have no right to be pissed off.

    dont be so quick to judge....im pissed off because i bought them in japan and they had 5.1 on them not 4.1 as advertised...

    and i dont want 5.1.1...i just want 5.1 unlocked.

    If you require (or perhaps just want) the unlock, you should have bought them from a carrier that unlocks.

    Taking a risk that someone else will create an unlock is a big risk.

    ...

    The untether is nice but honestly other than piece of mind there isnt really much rebooting going on even when installing most cydia apps. Dont really see the big deal especially with semitether

    Having a tethered JB on my 3GS poses a bit of a problem, as my power button in the corner is a bit sticky and doesn't function as it should. I've been stuck in that loop where my phone keeps restarting as I was unable to boot tethered because of my sticky home button, nightmare! So if I ever really do need to reboot my device, it's a tough task >.< I'd be happy with any untether if I'm entirely honest! :eek:

    Yeah my battery has never died once and i use it quite a bit (not for voice though). Regardless it doesnt matter put the 3gs on ebay and buy something else, you wont lose money on those phones

    Downgrade to 4.1 and be untethered if it's that important to you. Apple is still signing it as far as I know.

    If you can afford an iMac, a Macbook, AND an iPad, you can afford either 1. a portable charger or SOMETHING that carries battery juice with it (or just bring the charger with you) 2. an off-contract iPhone 4 or something to use instead of your 3GS. Sell the 3GS and it won't even cost you 300 to upgrade.
