    Is upgrading to iOS5 worth a tethered jailbreak?

    What do you folks think. Would you rather be jailbroken on iOS 4 untethered, or jailbroken on iOS 5 tethered?

    I know I can go back if I want, just want to see what everyone else says. I was really hoping Siri would be ported by now, which would convince me to upgrade to iOS5 in a jiffy.

    I'm a untethered freak, I refused to upgrade to anything unless there was an untethered jailbreak for it. But honestly, I've tried ios 5 and it is spectacular! There is no siri port for the iPad yet (nor a jailbreak for iPad 2 yet) I chose to upgrade and have a tethered jailbreak. Notification center is godly and the safari is much better in my opinion. I am very pleased with the ios5 tethered, I think you might be too.

    I just jailbroke my iPad 1 literally about twenty minutes ago. I couldn't take handle losing my multi-touch gestures. I figure how often do I really reboot my iPad anyway. I'm not going to do much else with it for now though.

    there is hope, and this is it........but please wait on confirmation on if it is fully working on the iPad 1, plus updates to follow sometime this week.

    go ahead and read this thread below, and have an idea about what is semi-tethered jailbreak.

    Waiting for that “Next Thing” means you’d never buy anything.

    Don't rush things tooooooo fast, remember that quite a lot off the apps you download wont be totally iOS 5 compatible, give it time and maybe an untethered version will arrive in time.
    But until then, we have a perfectly working 4.3.3 jailbreak!

    ^^^^^

    What he said!

    It's not so much that tethering would bother me - it's that my favorite tweaks aren't running on iOS 5 yet.

    So, I'll wait..........

    I am a firm believer in letting others suffer first, rather than join the march of the Lemmings as they excitedly jump over the edge of the north rim. No iOS 5 for this wonk, I'll tell you what. I'll let the brave souls gathered here kill their iPads first and discover the hidden problems Apple slipped into iOS to kill us lawless jailbreakers off. Smiley.

    Not a theory. I read it on some web site, somewhere, some time ago. That Apple is up to no good, I'll tell you what. I

    like your quote: "Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain ." Tis how I live my life. Soaking wet and always being arrested for public dancing.
