Ok, so I took the plunge and jumped in to the iOS 5.01 untethered jailbreak, retained 01.59.00 baseband, and got mobile substrate and ultrasn0w installed, so I have signal and service, but I'm pretty much stock at this point.
1. There is NO data configuration page for APN, MMS settings, (cellular network data tab), however EDGE does seem to work?
2. FaceTime still says waiting for activation, even though I have setup a new Apple account with new email and my phone number, no facetime connections have been possible, keeps saying receiver must upgrade past 4.1+ to accept facetime.. and the receiver is also on 5.01 ??
3. iMessage not working, all message recipients say "SMS" not "iMessage"
4. Cydia seems to hang on refresh, I'm assuming a core repo is down because of all the traffic ? but eitherway, most of the basic stuff I want to install says can not install because of lack of dependencies...
I know I'm jumping the gun a little, but do I just have to wait or have these issues been resolved during the tethered release of 5.0 and 5.01 ? Searching seems to bring up all the 4.xx stuff, and not specific for the 5.0x iOS
