And OMG yes I can foresee the forums exploding about bricked phones.
EDIT: Something I just thought to add. I find it a bit irritating that this JB also works for 5.0.
There are a lot of folks out there that want a carrier unlock via SW, and if they've updated to 5.0.1, they may have to wait longer. As for me, I really wanted to stay on 5.0 as my battery life was spectacular... but @pod2g insisted that we all update to 5.0.1 if we wanted the untethered JB.
Don't get me wrong, I'm ecstatic we 4S users are getting the JB in a matter of hours... but, I dunno, just felt like ranting a bit. /rant

no.. its not JUST a command line... there are 2 tools. Absinthe (the normal one) that uses the backup/restore of itunes to pull off the JB. and then a Command line too also, in case something goes wrong.
"A tool named Absinthe and developped by the Chronic Dev Team will install the untether on your device. Also the iPhone Dev Team will release a CLI (command line) tool to help diagnose issues and repair things if it goes wrong."
