    Well, I have to say- my dog wouldn't let me sleep. Then I see this was posted one minute ago. Some of the better news I've heard all day.

    Not at all. You're only screwed if you update to 5.1 first.

    Incorrect. If someone is at any other release than 5.01 and Apple stops signing 5.01, they will not be able to use a jb based on 5.0/5.01

    You should update now, unless you are waiting for an unlock. If you only need a jailbreak, we already know that it will be for 5.0.1.

    Yeah yeah yeah yeah. This is an important milestone and the majority of visitors will be interested to read it. The majority is also not interested in reading the newest posts in that very large thread every day. If it were a less important post, like the last few pod2g has made on the blog, it would not warrant a new thread. But this does.

    said it before, but people are naive to think that these guys haven't thought about 5.1 and its impending release. they aren't stupid.

    Why is this even being debated? It's simple logic. 5.1 has not even been released yet. It would be impossible for them to release a 5.1 JB yet since they have only been able to work with 5.0.1 so far. Once they release the first JB, there will almost definitely be a new update for 5.1 and 5.2 and so on. But in the mean time, the JB will only be for 5.0.1. Case in point.

    Since MN has been working on it to some extent, I have hopes of a 5.0 JB. MN's own iPhone 4S is at 5.0 since he's working on the unlock too

    The thing that will suck is that since we can't save and replay 4S SHSHs, if we install something that screws up the phone, we'll have to restore to 5.1 (and the JB will therefore be gone)

    If you are currently running iOS 5.0.1 on your 4S or your iPad2, it doesn't matter what Apple releases. Just don't update your device past 5.0.1

    And cross your fingers that your phone doesn't need replacement which comes with 5.1. I would be so thankful for a downgrade path too but I'm psyched that we at least get a jailbreak soon:D

    If Apple signs 5.1 before the 5.0.1 JB is released, it's very possible that the 5.0.1 JB method will work on 5.1 too - for the A5 devices at least.

    I'm going to assume the A4 5.0.1 JB method will be patched in 5.1 though, since they already released it.

    See, this is the rub that a lot of people aren't thinking about. While finally having a jailbreak will be amazing, if you don't have a way to downgrade, it could be just a temporary thing. Let me explain...

    We've all installed something that didn't agree with our phones from Cydia. It happens. Normally, you'd just do a restore, select the firmware you want to be on (provided you had your shsh's for that firmware), then re-jailbreak.

    But with the A5 devices, until they come up with a way to downgrade, if you have to do a restore, you can only restore to firmware that Apple is still signing. If the jailbreak is for 5.0.1 (or even 5.1) and 5.2 is out, thus 5.0.1 or 5.1 aren't being signed anymore, you won't be able to downgrade and won't be able to jailbreak (unless there's a jailbreak for 5.2, for example).

    Just hope you don't run into any problems and need a restore. :D

    There are a lot of JB tweaks out there that are very nice, but very few that I use on a regular basis. The ones I use on a regular basis are the ones that I trust the most as well as they are the ones that cause the least amount of problems. At this point, I would likely be satisfied with the only tweak on my phone being the cydia icon. That would be good feeling.

    Eek this is a good point. Almost forgot about that! I'm going to stick with only working tweaks until something else is figured out!

    Anyone that is really interested, probably already get the tweets, which come out before anything is posted here.

    ----------

    Download the source, repo.hackyouriphone.org/

    Click on any one of his apps and you'll see a link to ios5 friendly apps inside. He has around 100 or so tweaks and apps.
