Apple does not allow users to install iOS version that is older than the latest released version. There is a workaround for this restriction. Users who have saved SHSH blobs using Cydia or TinyUmbrella for particular iOS version and particular iDevice can restore to this iOS.
Today Comex revealed in his Twitter that he found a way to drastically decrease the time it takes to jailbreak and learned how to utilize unionfs and thus get rid of the Cydia's 'Reorganizing FileSystem' process.
New approach will reportedly be used in his next jailbreak for iPad 2.
If you want to know more details on Comex's new approach, check
Earlier Musclenerd stated that it won't be necessary to move Apple apps anywhere if unionfs will be used. That also means that apps will keep their entitlements and thus simplify the sandboxing problem.
It is surprising how good the first beta version of iOS 5 is, but if for any reason you need to go back to iOS 4.3.3, we’ll show you how. There are at least two ways to do that:
Downgrade via XCode (Mac Only + dev license)
This is the easiest way to get back to a previous version of iOS. The bad part is that it can sometimes put you into a never ending DFU loop. You can typically use
1. Download the iOS 4.3.3 here (it is better to use Firefox).
2. Open XCode and from the top select Window and then Organizer.

The new hack is called PhoneIt-iPad and is available in Cydia repository http://apps.iphoneislam.com/ for $20. Take a look at the video:
Last year we told about Greg Hughes, who created the "Wi-Fi Sync" app, which allows to synchronize your iOS-device with iTunes wirelessly. After Apple's rejection the developer sent it to the Cydia Store instead. Since then the app was sold over 50,000 times. But as you know, this week Apple unveiled that it made Wi-Fi Synchronization with iTunes an inbuilt feature in iOS5. In response Hughes decided to accuse the company in ripping his work.

MuscleNerd recently Tweeted that iOS 5 beta 1 jailbreak is already available. DevTeam released Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1.
For now the jailbreak is tethered (you have to run redsn0w each time you reboot) and available for Mac OS X only. It will not activate your device, so you need have registered UDID. iPhone 3GS users with 06.15 baseband: redsn0w will get you past the iTunes restore error. This redsn0w will probably work on future versions of iOS 5.
Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1 works with iOS 5 b1 on iPhone 4 (GSM / CDMA), iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 1.
This is mostely for developers of Cydia apps. Most tweaks and Cydia applications do not work on iOS 5.
You can download Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1 here.
MuscleNerd has announced in Twitter that iOS 5 has been successfully jailbroken using old good LimeRa1n exploit. Cydia and SSH is working without any problems.

Cydia works fine too from quick testing (I installed SSH) http://is.gd/oADWEo
It is currently tethered, that means jailbreak is gone after reboot. Hopefully i0n1c will be able to port his untether to iOS 5. Anyway great news for all jailbreakers!
