If you have a Jailbroken iDevice than it is highly recommended that you do not update to the iOS 5.1. The current Jailbreak tools works for iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 and the Jailbreak for iOS 5.1 has not yet been released. Unfortunately the new iPad will be shipped along with iOS 5.1 so there is no way currently to Jailbreak it. We hope the iPhone Dev Team’s will come up with a solution for that soon enough.
