Upgrade to iOS 5 or stay on jailbroken iOS 4??
I was wondering if anyone one thinks its better to upgrade to iOS 5 or keep my current iOS 4 thats jailbroken? I don't see a need to upgrade unless the newer features are worth it. Can anyone chime in on this? Thanks!

its all relative to your liking. meaning; what are YOUR reasons for jailbreaking to begin with?
some people jailbroke for the very same changes that Apple has implemented into iOS 5. i know some people who no longer will jailbreak because iOS 5 satisfies their needs. i know others who despise it.. where do you fall into?
for me, jailbreaking just adds extra benefits to an already great system. like a bonus, if you will
at the time, when iOS 5 beta came out, i was jailbroken on iOS 4.x.x but very bored with it so iOS 5 was a nice change. in fact i felt, at the time, that a buggy iOS 5 (beta) was better than a jailbroken iOS 4.x.x
now i am jailbroken on iOS 5 and there are some pretty cool tweaks out there now. i am now interested in the jailbreak again
of course until an untethered JB for iOS 5 is released you will have to contend with the tethered jailbreak and i am assuming you're on an untethered JB. that alone is what keeps most where they are until further changes

I think the jailbreak scene is going to look pretty drastically different, and not very positive, especially for iPad 2 and 4S owners. I honestly don't know what to do with iPad 2: keep it on 4.3.3 jb or go to 5.0.

Im in same boat but then i cant live without MiWi, My3g, Lockdown Pro, Infinidock, Folder Enhancer etc etc. Im currently tethering between my iPhone & iPad right now. Im waiting for untethered jb then i'll update. Im waiting for the iPhone 4s to be jailbroke also to upgrade my iPhone 4.

regarding running a tethered jailbreak on iOS 5
i would also like to add that with "my" current setup my device runs very smooth. no issues whatsoever with any stuttering graphics, speed or hangups. these seemed typical and acceptable while on 4.x.x
of course i am not using Winterboard, and do not plan on it, this time around. so that could be one reason as well
