As you may already know, iOS 5.1 has already made available by Apple for quite some time now. As per usual, the firmware is now jailbreakable although one has to settle with the fact that it is just a tethered jailbreak. In case you have jailbroken iOS 5.1 in your device using Sn0wbreeze 2.9.3, then you will need to use iBooty so you can boot your iPhone into its tethered state for every shutdown or reboot.
