However and regardless, my recommendation is to do nothing at this time. A jail breaker's best course of action, especially if there is news of an impending jail break is to sit still, hang tight and wait. One should never upgrade to any firmware on their own unless that version of firmware has been proven to be jail breakable.
Once the jail break is released, that's the time to make a decision on what to do.
So, hang in there! And, if you have that stooooopid red badge sitting on your Settings icon, just learn to love it. When I was waiting for the jail break on the iPhone 4S, I adopted my red dot and called it Bob. This one on my iPad3? His name is George!
