    The a5 has been out for a long time and no one has found a exploit on the chip yet. It's unlikely they would release it until the a6 is out even if they found something in hopes that it would work on the a6 also

    It's very easy to predict the release date.
    It's in 53.2 days.
    Thank you.

    No there's no way to downgrade without your saved SHSH blobs. It's kind of dumb that apple prevents you from downgrading, its your device and u should be able to do what u like.

    Except when you bought it and made your Apple account, you agreed to the Terms of Service. You agreed to have Apple prevent you from downgrading. If you wanted to downgrade you should not have accepted the Terms of Service. Not to be harsh, but the reason you can't downgrade is really because of your decision.

    ^ yah but what choice do you really have. It's not like you can really decline.

    ...

    The 4.3.3 jailbreak was userland, it was not an a5 jailbreak the way that a persistent jailbreak was found for the a4. Once a hole in the chip is found then every firmware becomes jailbreakable and it's just a matter of working on an untether kernel exploit
