Looks like Apple is so jealous about jailbreak term that they even banned this word on iTunes. MuscleNerd just retweeted planetbeing’s discovery concerning song search on iTunes. Looks like Apple have banned all the content that includes word ‘jailbreak’. That may have happened because the company still thinks that this procedure is illegal despite american laws clearly state that it is completely allowable. As you probably know the Apple’s license ceases its effect right after you jailbreak any of iDevices. So you have to restore to the stock firmware in case if you have any problems or questions concerning your gadget and need to bring it to Apple Store.

But you may think twice before updating, because after that you will lose your jailbreak and unlock. Jailbreak iOS 5.1 you can here (tethered) or use Step 7 to do it quickly. But what about unlock?

He already said that they have all the exploits needed for jailbreak and even passed through ASLR (address space layout randomization) on device’s boot. That means that the hacker is on the final stage.
