this question is not meant to be rude and is merely a curiosity thing but...
what is taking so long for the devs to come up with an untethered jailbreak? Has Apple done something very different with iOS 5 that has really complicated things?
Looking forward to the answers and to more jail breaking!!

I'm not 100% sure, but in order to get OTA jailbreak, the devs must discover a bug that can be exploited from the browser. The current exploits occur in the booting sequence, while the bug used by JailBreakMe.com in it's latest two iterations had to do with PDF vulnerabilities.

Well clearly there is a HUGE hole somewhere in 5.0... I think everyone heard of the guy who hot an app past apple that connected to a web page, then something on the web page could take, and place info from
and to the iPhone.
Also the devs have been saying userland exploit for a while so
I'm betting on an untethered jailbreakme.com jailbreak on the not too distant future
