So I bet everyone heard the news about pod2g's untether for iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1
Full Details: iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak Now a Reality - iodine Dev
Will you be jailbreaking your iOS 5 device, if you haven't already, when the untether is released?

If the dev team waits until 5.1 will that make us who are jailbroken with red snow on 5.0.1 out of luck? If 5.1 is out we won't be able to restore without upgrading. Can you re-jailbreak over another jailbreak without restoring?

unfortunately they will only realize after it is too late and then there will be endless threads of "can i jailbreak (untethered) on 5.1.x??" when all along they had the tools to keep them in an Untethered status

As for iFaith and Parallels, I can't guarantee it will work (only one way to find out ). If you use BootCamp and boot into Windows, the chances of success will increase to 100%.

I understand that I can use iFaith and downgrade to 5.0 but what my question is, should I un-jailbreak now and wait for the untethered to come out or will I be able to use the new untethered jailbreak after 5.1 comes out? This is assuming that 5.1 is NOT an untethered jailbreak and I wouldn't be able to down rev.

Basically Pod2g has finally got it working on iOS 5.0.1, BUT he hasn't packaged it up for a release yet lets hope its soon. I crumbled and ditched my untethered 4.3.3 JB to update to iOS 5 over the weekend and did my first tethered JB with Ac1dsn0w.

iFaith, from what I'm reading, is only for Windows. The Mac people will have a tough time with this, myself included.
Could anyone explain to me why the developer would wait around until 5.1 to release this? Is he hoping that the JB will work on 5.1? If it doesn't, he loses a lot of potential people that won't be able to use his jailbreak with a tool like iFaith.
In my opinion, if he's got it working now, he should release it right now, I'm personally very OK with not upgrading to 5.1, as a matter of fact, I miss my OS4 with lock info and Pwntunes and safari downloader -- if I wasn't given a replacement phone with OS5 on it, I would have never upgraded, I don't see a single benefit of OS5 over 4.
