Untethered iOS 5 Jailbreak Patched by Apple?

i0nic, the hacker behind untethered iOS 4.3.3 jailbreak, tweeted that his untethered jailbreak that was being used on top on Limera1n exploit has been patched in iOS 5 firmware.

This is what i0nic tweeted about iOS 5 untethered jailbreak:

i0nic: R.I.P. – I just heard Apple killed the ndrv_setspec() integeroverflow and his friends in iOS 5.0b1 – if this is true the untether is dead

Within 24 hrs of iOS 5 beta availability, MuscleNerd had tweeted that iOS 5 jailbreak on iPod Touch 4G (tethered) has successfully been achieved using the same Limera1n exploit. But for those hoping for an untether jailbreak from i0n1c, it looks like their dreams have been put to rest.

Of course it’s possible that hackers find another untethered jailbreak exploit or even a new bootrom exploit to provide untethered jailbreak, although most likely it wouldn’t be released until iPhone 5 availability to prevent Apple from patching that exploit at the hardware level.

Now the question is: Would you go for a tethered iOS 5 jailbreak or stay at iOS 4.x.x until an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak is out?
