The next update to Apple’s iOS 5, iOS 5.0.1 is set to be released on March 9th. iOS 5.1 should fix battery issues, and add some new features if the beta releases are anything to go by. Siri Dictation for the iPad is one of the most anticipated features of iOS 5.1. iOS 5.1 also had a lot of new wallpapers. Historically, Apple adds new wallpapers only when a new device is set to be released. We here at iOS Jedi love anything and everything Apple has to offer. New wallpapers around this time of the year could only mean one thing, the iPad 3! Maybe I’m over-analyzing, but a guy can hope, can’t he?
An important point to be considered before you update, is that iOS 5.1 CANNOT be jailbroken untethered on any iDevice. It should be jailbroken tethered on devices below the iPhone 4S/iPad 2 since the A4 processor has a bootrom exploit. Also, make sure you save your SHSH(and APTicket) blobs using TinyUmbrella or Redsn0w so that you can downgrade to untethered freedom anytime!
