Just updated to ios 5.0 GM will Redsnow jailbreak work?
Is it even worthwhile to jailbreak on ios5 yet. Ive been hearing redsn0w will work on ios5 thats what I've been running on 4.3.5 for a few days now. Downloaded the newest Itunes for ios5 and got the 5.0 firmware and now Ios5 Iphone4. Are Cydia apps tested on ios5 yet or any pre-confirmed app listings that have been proven to work on ios5.
To those aren't sure of updated to 5.0. The release today is the final (GM) version the public will see on the 12th of this month. 7 days from now.

Redsn0w does indeed work with the GM:

Sn0wbreeze was updated as well, for people who want to go that route:

...though I'm guessing a lot of jb apps won't run on the new firmware yet.

Jailbreaking ios5 I think is worth it after researching compatible apps
The first 3 are new ios5 specific jailbroken apps for notification center
2. UISettings - Like a SBsettings for notification center
3. WeeTwitter Widget
5. Mobile Terminal
7. Direct Closer Pro
8. Winterboard - If small reboot
9. SBsettings seems to have had trouble in beta but now working with ios5 GM
13. 5 Icon Dock
Some of course might be buggy. But all should work. I'm as of yesterday on Ios5 GM and fixing to jailbreak myself with the newest resn0w for the final ios5 release. Anyone know of any recent links,etc to confirmed jailbroken apps or new ios5 specific apps reply here. But guys wondering about jailbreaking ios5; it is so clean, stable, and the setup process after your upgrade to ios5 on itunes that you do on your phone itself is so cool. Setting up Icloud, etc. Believe it or not but going from 4.3.3, 4.3.4 or 4.3.5 to 5.0 is faster than normal and the file is a little bigger than ios4 files.

IMO whenever firmware is released it's always best to wait a week or so before doing a JB on the firmware. Personally I don't even bother JBing on beta software but since the GM is pretty much close to perfect usually give Cydia and the JB devs time to tweak the apps and you should experience less hurt. I've been tethered on 4.3.5 and people make it out to be more painful than it really is :P

There are 13-15 total Notification Center Widgets in Cydia
Not only is it cool to have a GM release of Ios5 but with so many Cydia apps working like below, I don't see it has any reason to wait. Just don't go installing something that has been said to not work...
Five Icon Dock
Manual Correct Pro
To name some

Worked for me, just jailbroke my Iphone 4 with Ios5 GM, with RedSn0w, but I now have a huge problem.
None of my jailbreak apps, including my3g, tonefxs,winterboard,respring,fakecarrier,pdanet,if ile,mxtube,unlimtones,activator,cydelete,flashlock ,opennotifier, tetherme, will install, and some won't even show up.
I get the error" Note: Cannot Locate Package.........."

The nearest analogue I've seen is PowerCenter, which is paid, has more features (than I want), and also has some serious issues with its touch targets being too small. It's ugly too, unless you pay for the pro version.
Anyone know where I can find UISettings?
