Wise to wait for 5.1 (battery fix) before JB'ing?

    I have an iPhone 4s, and have decided to jailbreak. However, with the media event coming up in a few days, and the possible release of 5.1 looming, am I better off waiting for 5.1 and a subsequent jailbreak release?

    The alternative is jailbreak today, and possibly upgrade to 5.1 in a few days for the battery fix, losing my jb.

    Who knows when a JB for 5.1 will be available could be a long wait or a short wait is that a risk you are willing to take?

    Depends on whether or not you can live without the jailbreak long enough until the Dev Team patches it. Me personally don't plan on upgrading because I was able to resolve my battery issues by having my local Apple store replace my phone, after doing that I noticed much much better battery life on my 4s, finally resorted to having it replaced after troubleshooting it and trying all the fixes posted on the net.

    No, it is not wise. The battery is fine with 5.0.1.
