    Default A5 users, Update to 5.0.1 for JB!

    Hey everyone!

    pod2g just tweeted not too long ago for everyone to update to 5.0.1 if you want the Untethered JB your A5 device (iP4S and iPad2)

    that's why you do not update. welcome to the life of jailbreaking. always waiting to update to the latest & greatest firmware

    most think it's worth it...

    LOL, this was the same in Android. If you rooted your phone and Google released a new version of Android... you NEVER took the OTA download

    also, i would look into iFaith or TinyUmbrella and how you can save your SHSH blobs and create your own custom firmware so if you ever need to restore you can ALWAYS go back to iOS 5.0.1, even well after Apple stops signing it. otherwise you will have to restore to whatever OS Apple is currently signing which most likely will not be jailbroken at the time, Untethered anyways

    The tougher decision is for those of us on 4.3.3 with our iPad 2. Updating to 5.0.1 and hoping for a jailbreak is too much of a risk for me. Worse case scenario is I'm stuck on 4.3.3 forever, but at least I'm happy. Giving that up for 5.0.1 and having to wait several more weeks or months isn't worth it for me. If and when a jailbreak is available for 5.x I'll be more inclined to upgrade if given the choice, but for now I'm staying put.

    This is good to know. Thanks for sharing the knowledge

    pod2g says that the JB should be released in about a week. I don't think Apple will be releasing 5.1 by then. I'd wait it out

    Ditto!

    Everything would have been easier if pod2g stated that in the first place.

    I wouldn't update to 5.0.1. My battery life got worse on 5.0.1, even after several restores and setup as new. Just stay on ios 5.0

    really? my battery life stayed the same maybe even improved a little going from 5.0 to 5.0.1

    still do not understand how some users are/were experiencing battery performance issues with either OS. i'm lucky i guess

    5.1; i can definitely tell it has improved for me, and it's a beta! i hope it stays that way when the GM is released

    What device are you hesitant to update? If it's a device that has an A4 chip (iPad and iPhone 4), then there's already an untethered JB available.

    The iPhone 4S doesn't have any sort of a JB currently. The iPad 2 does have a JB on 4.3.3, and if that's what you're not wanting to update... then no, I'd keep it on 4.3.3 until the 5.0.1 JB becomes available

    My iPad 2 is unlocked from factory, and My question is if i uppdate it in iTunes or jailbreak it.
    It can never be locked somehowe? Once factory unlocked always unlocked no matters what i'm doing.

    Or ?

    If the iDevice is factory unlocked you can do whatever you like and it will work

    So, the jailbreak only works for the version it's built for?

    I can confirm if you jailbreak a 5.0 using redsnow 10b3, that it is a tethered jb... You need 5.0.1 for untethered

    pod2g's latest blog states they're basically done! This is awesome!

    "Here are some news about the current work on the A5 research.

    @planetbeing escaped from the sandbox with the help of @saurik. Thanks to their awesome work, there should be nothing left blocking for the A5 jailbreak.

    Now it should be a matter of days. Still no precise ETA of course.

    We all want this to be finished ASAP, we're getting tired!"
