Apple’s IOS 5 could make get tough On Jailbreakers:

One common solution for a misbehaving iPhone is to downgrade to the previous version of iOS.

But the iPhone Dev-Team has found hints in iOS 5’s latest release that Apple may be planning to block downgrades.

That’s bad news for people who incorrectly install a jailbreak and want to downgrade their phone to start over.

There’s a long and very technical explanation to how iOS 5 will do this, but at the end of the day it’s going to be a lot tougher to downgrade and perform an untethered jailbreak. (The process that lets you boot your jailbroken phone without plugging it into your computer first.)
