Good news for A5'ers!!!  Your iPad 2 and iPhone 4S is closer to being Jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1....and hopefully that also ends up in a fully functioning, hassle free Siri Port!!!!!

Remember, if you rely on a carrier unlock, DO NOT UPDATE YOUR DEVICE.  

iOS 5.1 Beta 2 was seeded to developers on December 12th and release is surely eminent.  We are expecting 5.0.1 to be short lived.  As @p0sixninja tweeted, it's time to update your devices...do this at your discretion and you will loose your current jabilbreak for a short time.  I did update my iPad 2 last night....what a task.....update when you feel ready, remember, Apple can spring a release at a moments notice and you will be SOL.

When you are ready to update, remember my laws of Jailbreaking, in this order:

1. Transfer purchases & backup your iDevice in iTunes. Do  both of these by right clicking your iDevice name in iTunes and selecting these options.
2. If currently Jailbroken, back up your Cydia apps using PKGBackup or some other reliable utility. I recommend using the Dropbox feature along with PKGBackup.  Get your free DROP BOX ACCOUNT HERE
3. Don't skip rules 1 & 2
4. Now update to the current the firmware.
5. After updating to the latest firmware, iTunes will restore your settings, apps and music.
6. Now wait for the Jailbreak to be released.

I'll keep you posted on what to do next!!!!
