    Out of curiosity, if I upgrade my JB iPad 2 to 5.0, or even 4.3.5, just any un-JB-en iOS version, how much will I lose? Just access to cydia and the ability to dl new packages, or will my existing packages like iFile and retinapad stop working? I realize that some may simply be incompatible with new features in a new version, but I'm talking about losing all cydia packages across the board or not.

    yes, as I recall, all Cydia apps and installous pirated software will disappear.

    All gone. Some tweaks leave residual effects behind unless you do a clean restore, but from a practical standpoint, after upgrading everything JB-related will be unusable, inaccessible, and pretty hard to detect. This is why most JB-ers don't upgrade until a new JB is available.

    You'll be able to redownload paid apps (if they're still available) the next time you can jailbreak.

    Bah, that sucks. :( I hope someone steps up to fill comex's shoes so we get an iPad 2 JB for 5.0!
