Not necessary. If you're on 5.0.2 and your happy like that, you can stay that way. BUT, if you want the new features in 5.2 (Bluetooth keyboard), then you should jailbreak again, with the incovenience of having to do a clean install of XBMC

yep! worked like a charm.

OK, some manual work. But it's not that much and 5.2 is for me worth the effort.

- select my AirPlay speaker as output

- use multiple Apple IDs

- Better PhotoStreams (Shared events)

- Sort Icons

What do you mean with 'some manual work'?

just updated and everything went smoothly. what I did notice though is once Itunes open season pass will automatically grab the wrong file(5.0.2), so I had to cancel season pass and manually select 5.2
