    Update question: iPhone 4 greenpoison jailbreak 4.2.1. When I upgrage to 5.0.1 and then this jailbreak is released to the public, will cydia, mywi and all other apps get reinstalled? Will my registration for apps that I bought get remembered?
    Yes it should. Just re login to your existing cydia account when you update and rejailbreak.

    Can't wait for the release! Great job to chronic dev team, once again! Until the public release, however, I'll be sticking with my 4.2.1 iPhone 4. No point giving up the jailbreak just to experience iOS 5 before it's jb'd. IMO - that's not much of an experience.
    Ummmm....iOS 5 is jailbroke. It's just tethered, which to many people put negative attention to. Especially with Semitether, what would hold you back from updating to a much better OS? Just my opinion, but if you have your shsh blobs for 4.2.1 and you don't like iOS 5 you can always go back and rejb with GP again. I have a feeling if most of these people that have never tried but only heard tethered JB's suck actually try it out they'll think differently. It's really not that bad. I've had packages from cydia that need a reboot (not to many) but I've never had my phone crash to where I need to boot tether. It may respring itself or go to safe mode but you don't need to reboot to solve that issue. And even if something like that happens Semitether will kick in (if you can't boot tether) so at least you have your phone and SMS (and safari if you toggle it) available for emergencies or you just need to text or call someone. Not a big deal at all

    That's somewhat good news, the jailbreak for the A5 is the real deal though. It's nice to have the iOS 5 jailbreak, but the iPhone 4 is old, if you want to admit it or not. With the iPad 3 and iPhone 5 avaliable within the next year. The A5 jailbreak is a huge step forward.

    This is my single biggest gripe with being a 4S user. The jailbreak grass is so much greener on the other side.

    Didn't musclenerd release a video of the iPad 2 on iOS 5 jailbroke? This would indicate the a5 will be included, right?

    Is it even worth updating to iOS 5? I'm still on 4.1 with my iP4 set up exactly how I like it and I couldn't be happier.

    What makes iOS 5 better?

    I'd also like to know exactly how much time these guys dedicate to finding exploits to jailbreak the different iOS versions. I'm willing to pay up and help support them if it means a much faster jailbreak because I'm sure these guys already need to keep full time jobs as it is.

    Do you think someday it will be possible for the devs to create upgrade packages. For example.....

    Release untethered JB for 5.01
    When apple updates 5.02, they can download the update, disect it, rip out the files that were changed and then we can apply the updates manually without reflashing and losing JB status.

    Or go a step further......

    Release untethered jb for 5.01
    Apple updates come out, they update but they have another JB that is unreleased. They use it to jb their device and grab the file changes which are then bottled up for us to consume.

    This way you can burn just one jb yet still maintain the ability to upgrade with the rest of em and enjoy the upgrades so long as you don't fubar your phone and have to restore without ifaith etc..

    Just a thought......

    This is great news especially for me since i updated my iphone 4 to 5.0.1 only because my phone was acting a little weird. I cant wait to go back to a jailbroken device. Iphones look so damn boring without a theme. I hope it gets released this week. I miss having those extremely useful and handy tweaks.

    What are you talking about? 5.0.1 is the latest public iOS. 5.1 is in beta and only released to developers.

    Reading many of these posts have reminded me of Musclenerd's preliminary jailbreak for the 4s which was posted about a while ago. Does anybody have any knowledge of the status of this

    I will patiently await the iOS 5.0/.0.1 JB for the iPad 2, however if this JB comes out in the meantime, I might as well JB my iPhone 3GS. I'm just hoping to find some tweaks that'll make it run a bit quicker again, iOS5 gobbled up most of my phone's responsiveness.
