    They did fix the no sim card error and they didn't change the firmware number.

    They could, but they'd want to push it out as a security update with a new version number so people would update.

    They might, but I think they need to plan way a head of time because they know that once untethered jailbreak coming out. Lot of people will be updating to 5.0.1 so they can take an advantage of this untethered jailbreak. If Apple update their 5.0.1 firmware in their server within the next few days (assume they can plug the hole that fast)without telling us, they will screw us big time.

    Also, if you look at 3GS phone, we all assume that 3GS can install Ipad baseband. With the recent 3GS, they change something inside, 3GS manufacturer in 2011, week 35 or above, there is reported that we can install Ipad baseband onto it.

    That would be an incredibly annoying move by Apple by an effective one, I still doubt that they would do that.

    No. Any patch will include a revision number in the software.

    I admit that would be a new twist to the cat and mouse game. I hope no apple big apple guys see this.

    They could but they would likely be crucified for it. Also they wouldn't be able to push the update to anyone with 5.0.1 already installed.

    Its possible, they just did it not to long ago with the "no sim card" error. The 5.0.1 stayed the same but the version number changed.

    Apple has never updated iOS code with a patch and not incremented the version number. Configuration data files yes, but never the code base. Released builds with different build numbers and the same code revision only includes updated configuration information, not code changes.

    There is no need for this. With OTA delta updates, the cat is going to win this game of chase easily

    In that instance, even though the version string was the same they did update the Build Number which I would think is also taken into account when iTunes checks for updates. In theory they could patch it and leave the build and the version the same so that no one would really know the difference short of hashing the file.

    I highly doubt it.
    It would be something like 5.0.2 with a security update and bug fixes.
