    It seems a shame to burn 5 exploits for the sake of an iOS version that has basically zero new features :-(

No new features, its just 5.0.1 just fixes the battery problem and add a stupid sliding camera button on the lock screen.
    Its not work it, 6.0 will be work it, since its a whole ios upgrade, you always get alot of new features with them types of upgrades.

    DON'T WASTE, WHAT COULD BE ARE ONLY EXPLOIT TO JAILBREAK IOS6 RIGHT FROM THE START.
    One of my idevices gave me no choice, I had to update to 5.1 because it stopped charging, it wouldn't detect being plugged into the USB at all unless it was in DFU mode.. I couldn't restore to 5.0.1 .. so not everyone chose to upgrade..

    The issue is that ios6 will probably be a major overhaul of the OS.. there's a good chance these exploits won't even exist in the updated version..

    But every time Apple introduces new apps or new features, they introduce potential new exploits... I don't think Apple is trying TOO hard to keep the JB community out, the fact we can JB our devices actually increases sales.. if I couldn't use many of the cydia apps I love, I doubt I'd have bought the 4s .. as it stands now, my 4s is stock 5.1 and I'm hating it ..

    my ipad and ipod are both 5.0.1 at least

    iOS 6! Although I have an iPad 3rd generation, I'd prefer it be released for iOS 6, because it's the next major update.

    People who is desperate for jailbreak for 5.1 because they are stuck on it will be more inclined to vote than people who didn't, I was actually surprised when I voted total showed 55 yes and 45 no thought there were more on yes.

    The worst part about the way you troll Apple products on this site is how you aren't even serious when you say you won't buy any more of them. Why are you buying the new iPad? to complain about it?

    I will now go buy an Samsung Android tablet instead of an iPad. I will also get a new laptop instead of a MacBook as its heaps cheaper and heaps better.
    Thanks again to Apple for the lawsuits and making my choice of device a lot easier.

    I would say wait, if you release it, Apple will download it, dissect it and fix the exploits for sure, at least this way there is chance that they won't.

    Of course, if Apple wanted to put a stop to the jailbreaking activity, they could just create an unapproved Apps section of their store that all rejected apps automatically get put into. They could even build in a switch for the Genius bar to quickly remove all unapproved apps for testing purposes. Yes, there would be a warning whenever you entered the unapproved apps section letting you know that these apps will be removed if you take your phone in for service.

    Yes, there would still be some people that would want to hack the phone to be able to say that they did, but overall, they would find that most people would stick with a stock phone.

    Ultimately, this would put a stop to this cat and mouse game without admitting defeat, heck Apple might even make a few extra dollars in the process.

    I agree. I really want them to release a JB for the new ipad. They have demonstrated that they already have 2 methods in the bank. Why not release one and hold the other for iOS6?

    Wait until 6 comes out and see if one of the exploits can be used on it , if not then release a 5.1 JB.
    Exploits should be use judicously .

    Please, please, please wait for iOS 6.. Nothing in 5.1 is that new. iOS 6 is very near.

    I personally think they should release it if they have it made. I'm on 4S with 5.01 jb. Lots of people on 5.1 help them out. iOS 6 will be a whole new bag so work on that as u go. A jb never comes out for a new OS withinh the first couple months so the amount of time people are stuck without the jb is long

    Well 5.1 brings what? A camera grabber and "better" battery life. Yeah right but 6.0 obviously (better) will be more better features. I'm happy chillin on untethered jailbreak till 6.0 comes out. You might as well wait and jailbreak the new one
