this is true it would only be usefull when booting tethered which is like hardly ever...

It's no point installing it now as the jailbreak for 5.0 is tethered. Don't install it because it doesn't support iOS5 yet.

(edited portion)only 3gs old bootrom is untethered. It's not an assumption as only a small percentage of all idevices are a 3gs old bootromThe steps below apply ONLY to 3GS old bootrom

As the cydia app Logome doesnt work on iOS5 iv found an alternative way to change the boot logo on iOS 5 with the program snowbreeze but you have to restore your iphone to do so.

  1. Download firmware iOS5 or 5.0.1 for your idevice (
  2. Download sn0wbreeze v2.8b11 (
  3. Open sn0wbreeze click browse locate your iphone .IPSW firmware
  4. Click the arrow at the bottom and then goto "expert mode"
  5. Then click "custom boot logos" then arrow at bottom
  6. In this screen you can now change your boot logo and recovery mode logo (only PNG files under 100kb per boot logo accepted)
  7. After you've done click "build IPSW" it will now make a custom iOS5 firmware
  8. after its done follow the steps on the screen to put your iphone into DFU mode or look on youtube on how to
  9. open itunes plug in your iphone hold SHIFT and click "restore" a brower will appear locate your custom sn0wbreeze ISPW click select wait for your iphone to restore and your done
  10. Enjoy!
