    I just read that if you currently have an A5 or A5x 5.01 Ipad and you upgraded to 5.1 you are able to return it back to 5.01 so you can stay jail broken until its out for the 5.1

    Any one read this?

    No, unfortunately, I don't know where you got that info from but it is way wrong. If you have an A5 device and you upgrade it to iOS 5.1, you can NOT go back down to 5.0.1.

    So, if you have one of these devices (iPad2 or the iPhone 4S) then do not upgrade to iOS 5.1.

    It's moot with the iPad3 and it's A5X chip - it came with iOS 5.1 and is not downgrade able anyway...

    So, don't believe whomever wrote that article you just read. They are incorrect.

    Oh, you mean that tweet from iH8sn0w back on 25 March (-ish).

    AFAIK, there's been no more news about it what he's done or discovered. So, until we hear differently, we still can't downgrade the iPad2 (or the iPhone 4S) off of iOS 5.1.

    And yeah, here's hoping something comes from it ...
