    I'm very cautious with Jailbreaking.

    When a new Jailbreak comes out, I tend to wait a couple days to see what happens around the web. Always fearful of bricking my devices.

    The fact that they will include a CLI pretty much tells me they expect bugs to pop up and there will probably be a couple patches post-release.

    The second this JB hits the public, I'm just going to sit back and wait for reports and feedback to come in. I'll probably wait a week. I'll download all the files I need and just sit back and watch.




    Is anyone here just going to jump right in the moment it's released and throw all caution to the wind?

    I too will jailbreak as soon as i possibly can. Why wait? If anything goes wrong I'll just restore from a backup. There's no reason not to do it

    Ok. I'll happily enjoy my JB.

    There's never been a JB release that has left your phone unusable. That happens from the shady tweaks people install post-JB process.

    Plus, 5.0.1 is still being signed, and 5.1 won't drop over the weekend, so that gives plenty of safety net to test and restore if need be.

    I highly doubt it'll be a shortage of guinea pigs.

    Agreed.

    Yes. You can always download to the most up-to-date non beta version of iOS, because Apple is still signing it.

    Download the 5.0.1 .ipsw and DFU restore your phone to this .ipsw in iTunes.

    I'll probably do my iPad first, just to get a feel for the process and then the 4s after that.

    My phone's backed up on my computer and icloud, I'm definitely giving a go. Worst case scenario, I have to restore and lose a potential unlock... ultimately not a big deal since I was stuck on 5.0.1 originally anyway (got a replacement which ended up being on 5.0)

    I've seen people with bricked devices with other and more polished tools like old greenpoison or limera1n tools...I'm not saying bricked per say but I'm talking about phones that just stay in coma, and can't be kicked out of recovery/dfu modes not even with the standard tools...

    Just jailbroke and installed a few things and all I can say is WOW. I've only ever tried a jailbreak on my iPod touch 4G and this feels much more stable or faster or something!
