    I have a 4S jailbroken, running 5.0.1. I want to upgrade to 5.1. Has anyone done an OTA update OVER a jailbreak? Or do I need to DL 5.1 to my PC and update through iTunes? I realize that which ever one I do, I will lose my JB.

    You need to upgrade thru iTunes. Your iPhone will give you an error message.

    You may need to fix that annoying hosts file. Google it, can't remember where it was...
