There are several press release over the last few days with regards an Untethered iOS 5 jailbreak, one such release as follows;
'New York, NY - Apple has released the iPhone 4S & public version of iOS 5. Most of you have bought the iPhone 4S because of its amazing Siri feature & most of you are updating their iPhone 4/3GS, iPod Touch 4G/3G, iPad 2/1 to iOS 5 firmware. In case you are looking for Unlock and Untethered Jailbreak iPhone 4 iOS 5 , then the good news is there is a jailbreak tool available to Untethered Jailbreak iOS 5 on iPhone 4 by the name of FastRa1n'
'New iOS 5 untethered jailbreak and unlock iPhone 4 available- What is the current situation ? The well-known iPhone tool FastRa1n has been updated and the guy behind the unlock and untethered jailbreak iPhone 4 ios 5 jailbreaks has announced about one of the bigger pieces of news. iOS 5 untethered jailbreak iPhone 4 has been released by the name of FastRa1n'
So you think (or at least i did... doh!), that an Untethered jailbreak is avaiable, so you follow the links to the website (pay you $20... yes i paid, i am desperate) and log in to the members area, where you follow the guide and download the files. Only to see the files you are downloading are for a JB of 4.3.3.!!!!!
Anyhow, so i go back to the home page of the web-site to read ' Jailbreak iPhone 4 up to iOS5', as it states this is obviously up to but not including iOS5?
Am i missing something on the web-site is there a Fastra1n untethered JB for iOS 5 out there???
Im not sure but i think it is a scam... I may be wrong though...
Perhaps, it may just be a badly informed news article and not too clear wording of the website.
I should learn to read things in detail before jumping in feet first:)

Absolutely, for sure, there is no jailbreak - untethered - for the iPad at present. You'll see the news of any jailbreak here in the Hacking section first. Everything else is a scam...
Permission to post this was denied earlier today. You all need to be very careful and pay attention to our rules. I take a VERY dim view of folks that promote or support scams and / or fakes knowingly...
