Hope apple fix the uk siri as from ios 5.01 the sound and voice are distorted , would be nice for apple to one day produce a firmware upgrade without so many bugs ,

I agree to an earlier comment stating NO JB in the near future. These "updates" being rumored to release is also a good tactic by Apple because why would the devs release a JB with a big update on the way? It was thought that an untethered iOS 5 JB would be released after this initial update, but I haven't even remotely heard of a whisper about one besides pod2g's claim of finding an exploit, but that is as far as its went. I have a feeling that untethered JB's just might become a part of the past. I mean by the time one is going to be thought of being released it'll be out of date with 2-3 Apple updates. Granted I'd rather one be released for 5.0 right now or when 5.1 launches than none at all. I would have to imagine that at some point Apple will completely find a way to close off any chance of exploiting or making it so difficult that just a standalone program will not be able to do the job. Look at SHSH Blobs now, they're pointless (at this time). Now we have no way to downgrade IF an untethered JB is released and it doesn't patch over a tethered exploit or if we just have an issue with a JB and have to restore, then our only option is to restore to whatever fw Apple is signing atm. That alone sucks! It just doesn't look very promising...
That's my opinion, but maybe its just because of the length of time it's been without any real updates on progress. I hope I'm completely wrong because the fact is there is no other device as great as a Jailbroken iDevice.

Damn nearly half of these jail breaker's and devs will be on apples payroll soon!!!! as we have heard already of some major players being invited to apples hq. I would just imagine all the cool toys that where showed to them and promises of being able to play wit them I'f they jumped ship.. Just a thoughtBlack iPhone 4 32G jail-broken iOS 5.1 R.P

maybe I shouldn't have bought the 4s, all this time I was under the impression that the imminent release of the ios5 jailbreak was going to apply for the 4s as well but I guess I was dead wrong.....GOD I MISS my JB!!!!!!! I really wish we had GeoHot and musclenerd around to work on the problem. I guess Apple won in the end after all. This probably means that we won't be seeing any JB for the 4s anytime soon or ever and I'm guessing iphone 5 will be JB proof. and if we do get a JB for the 4s, it's probably going to be some tethered crap. Oh! well!! I guess it was nice while it lasted......DAMN APPLE!!!!

For example, on a jailbroken ipad if you try to launch certain applications like DirecTV, DirecTV Nomad, Time Warner Cable, Optimum, BrightHouse, LoveFilm, etc... you will get a message saying that they do not support Jailbroken devices. The only option is to quit the app.
This simple detection routine can easily be put into the boot process. Apple itself could proclaim "Apple does not support jailbroken devices. Please connect to iTunes and restore". This effectively would turn any iOS device into a paperweight once jailbroken.
We need to mitigate this risk by developing a low level driver that can interpret all JB detection routines and respond to the app with normal non-jailbroken expected responses. It's only a few apps today, but some day Apple might make JB Detection mandatory or as part of the OS or every individual app launch process one day. Maybe in a future xcode update it will be automatically compiled into your app. Let's figure this out before it goes TOO FAR.

Yeah, I mean I just might have to get an android phone the next time around. Not so sure I enjoy a closed ecosystem with such a dictatorship level of control.
Hate to say it...
Hope we don't have to go that far.

Really the only thing I miss about untethered is boot logos. If something happens to my device now at least I can reboot and use my phone and SMS (semi tether). Boot tethering is not that big of a deal for me because I usually have a laptop/pc around me. I know it's very inconvenient for a lot of people and I really do hope to see an untethered exploit be released (hopefully greenp0ison. I think the 4.2.1 JB by GP was the best).
Let me ask a question. If we are currently on a 5.x fw and we are jb'n via tethered or untethered (when the time comes) and we have to restore but apple is no longer signing the fw that has an exploit can we still use TU to downgrade to say 4.2.1 or 4.3.3 so we can at least be able to jailbreak our device on an earlier fw/exploit?

If your device is susceptible to limra1n then there is a high probability the Blob Monster will be slaughtered soon.
It is more of a problem on newer devices but it is being worked on.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
