    With the mention at WWDC regarding iOS 5 and OTA updates, will there be an option to uncheck auto OTA updates? ..or are Apple forcing auto firmware updates on us to negate any JB's we may have?

    Check out some of @Musclenerd tweets over the past day, I think he covers OTA updates.

    Ota, is not a forced update deal. You can check for updates, but you don't have to download them.

    No. I was making reference to the fact that firmware updates will now be delivered as deltas over the air in IOS5. Imagine exactly the same, but Jailbreak updates delivered OTA. Once the device is pwned, I can envisage further OTA firmware updates ALREADY jailbroken, provided from alternative OTA servers than Apples. I"m sure the signature checks etc. put around OTA will be stringent, but here's hoping in time they will be exploited.
    Use your imagination people... the future is coming!... :D

    Count me in for this one! Sort of like what jailbreakme.com was. Easiest jailbreak, IMHO.
