Today iOS 5.1 has finally been released as well as a new iTunes 10.6.0.40.  The iTunes 10.6.0.40 is ok to update to if you really want to.  Myself, I do not update unless A. Something is not working right and this will fix it. or B. I really like a new feature that a update has.  Other than that, do not update.  Now, time to talk to all my jailbroken and or unlocked iphones, ipod, &  ipads.  DO NOT UPDATE YOUR DEVICE OR YOU WILL LOSE CYDIA (including all hacked apps) AND YOUR PHONE WILL NOT BE UNLOCKED ANYMORE!  <—sorry for the all caps but this is very important stuff folks!

Now from looking at the updates, I do not see anything critical for any device.  I see a couple ok things but, going back to my motto (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it) I will not be updating.  Ohh yeah, or it might be the fact that i’m using T-mobile with a Gevey Sim in my iPhone 4.  Now Remember if you have any questions, feel free to call those guys at CCRepairz in Henderson.  They know their stuff!
