It is surprising how easy it has been for the jailbreak community to obtain full control over iOS 5. The platform is supposed to feature over 200 new features and tweaks of all sorts, and apparently, defense against jailbreaking is not on the list. It is also interesting what software developers will come up with after obtaining root access to the platform. Let's not forget that iOS 5's notification system has been inspired by a tweak that debuted on jailbroken devices. The jailbreak comes in tethered flavor only, but an untethered solution will most probably come by the time iOS 5 goes live.
