    The untethered jailbreak for A5 devices will be based on 5.0.1 firmware first and later for 5.0 (if they follow how they are doing A4 devices).

    According to this tweet by pod2g is the reason I upgraded my 4S to 5.0.1.

    “@pod2g: BTW: A4/A5 users, don't update to 5.0.2 when it's out, that would cut your jailbreak possibilities.”

    I know what you mean about up to date and correct information regarding jailbreaks. There's alot of fragmented information and you have to look in several places.

    BTW, I upgraded to 5.0.1 just a few days ago and I have better battery life on my 4S.

    I'd still like one of the hacker devs to chime in and clearly endorse what to do. Still nervous.

    Did you see the tweet from pod2g that I pasted in an earlier post? That's an endorsement for me. I have clarification from other forums (modmyi, macrumors, here) that 4S users should upgrade to 5.0.1.

    Technically, no, it's not. It just says not to go to 5.0.2 . Can you post links to the other threads where people have recommended to update to 5.0.1?

    http://modmyi.com and http://pod2g-ios.blogspot.com/ have folks reporting that its ok to upgrade to 5.0.1 on the 4S. I upgraded because when iOS 5.1 comes out I don't want Apple to close out signing the 5.0.1 firmware and force me to upgrade to 5.1.

    Stay at 5.0 if you want. I highly doubt pod2g is preparing a 5.0 untether jb first for the 4S before the 5.0.1 firmware. It doesn't make sense.

    I have the same exact concern, but my point is that not Pod2g nor anyone else has explicitly said, "hey, I'm working on jailbreaking 5.0.1 on the A5 devices, so go ahead and update." Everything we "know" is really just conjecture and assumptions.

    You are right pod2g hasn't said anything explicity for A5 devices on what iOS to stay on.

    However, the software exploit they found for 5.0.1 for non A5 devices also exists in 5.0. Chronic dev team blog says they are also working on a 5.0 untether for non A5 devices.

    The issue holding up the A5 jailbreak untether is how to inject the code is hardware. The same limera1n exploit (developed by Geohot) which injects jailbreak code for all the previous jailbreak won't work on A5 devices.

    Also, pod2g's blog which I quoted says not to go to 5.0.2/5.1 when it's out.

    Therefore, this is why I believe its ok to upgrade to 5.0.1 on A5 devices.

    Are you getting any specific errors? Does this machine have TinyUmbrella installed on it?
    Are you using latest version of ITunes?

    If you go under Settings/General/About, what is your build number under version?

    Is it 5.0.1(9A405) or 5.01(9A406)?

    I am betting its build 9A405.

    For the 4S, Apple has released 2 build versions of 5.0.1 firmware. 9A405 was the initial build number for 5.0.1 and the 4S. A week or two later they released 9A406 which said it addressed a sim card issue as well.
    I am running 9A406 and that can only be installed via iTunes not via OTA like your build number.

    Apple certainly makes 5.0.1 release confusing for iPhone 4S users.

    I am 99% sure I will be ok with 5.0.1 and not shoot myself in the foot while waiting for the untethered jailbreak for the 4S. I needed better battery life.

    Right now, it's only mywi/pdanet and my3g that I really miss. The other cool tweaks and apps I am ok not having.

    Gahhh No SBSettings and no BiteSMS are killing me. IntelliscreenX has my mouth watering too.

    Any news on the 4s JB? I follow pod2g on twitter, and all the others, it's been quiet lately though.

    I finally updated 2 days ago since the A5 jailbreak will be on 5.0.1. I too have gained a better battery life on my 4s update. I'm usually anal about my battery life and I can tell a better usage and standby off one full charge.
