So I have an interesting question. I am not planning on installing this 5.1 release because I am on 5.0 holding out for the untether, but what happens to all us fine folk on 5.0 with a tethered JailBreak when the untether method comes out? Its probably not a good idea ( if even possible ) to re-jailbreak an already tethered jailbroken and heavily modded device wih a new jailbreak method is it? Traditionally I would have restored using my blobs and then jailbreak from a fresh restore to eliminate issues but with that no longer being possible with IOS5 how is this going to work? If I'm right then the coming 5.0 untethered jailbreak is really only going to be useful for people on stock unjailbroken 5.0 , or am I just being worried for nothing?

We've always been able to count on them before; I expect that they will impress us again.

Damn, just did the bug report to the dev team on my 4S and then decided to tiny umbrella it at 5.0 little did I know that I had to do it whilst apple was signing them. I thought since I had it (5.0) on the device that the shsh could be saved. Anyway, next concern I didn't check my iPad 2 yet because I'm at work and it's at home, but it's on 4.3.3 JB of course...but if I didn't umbrella it while apple was signing 5.0 when the 5.0 untether comes out I'm screwed? Can someone clarify this for me. If its not saved am I stuck at 4.3.3?Do what you can when you can, Why Wait?

IOS 5.1 is Jail-breakable via Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 (Tethered)

I don't see that you are a part of any dev team to be able to know that.
In fact if you listen to anything that p0sixninja wrote, you definitely won't see a jailbreak for iOS 5.0 (being that Apple already patched cricital exploits prior to 5.0 being released):
"Apple found & patched a (critical) few of those exploits, between the beta versions we used for testing and the final release of iOS5 on October 12."
Until a solution is found to replace SHSH blobs, it will be sh**ty situation with jailbreak because by the time any jailbreak is out Apple will most likely stop singing that firmware anyway...an issue for us that only want to upgrade to jailbreakable firmware.

IMHO there's no use for iOS 5.0 jailbreak now as a most of us with iPad 2s are still on 4.3.3 with no way to upgrade to 5.0 (since Apple stopped signing).Additionally new devices now are shipping with 5.0.1.That's why to make a statement that untethered JB will ONLY be released for 5.0 is misinformation, as things have changed if you ask me.

It wasn't misinformation when they said it (and still isn't). I am still on 5.0 on my iPhone 4S and quite a lot of people have stuck to 5.0 in hope of a untethered jailbreak. So saying it is useless is not quite right. I will say as more time passes and no jailbreak is released a 5.0 only jailbreak does become less relevant.
