How to Permanently Preserve Your iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak

If you've been paying attention to the jailbreak scene lately, then you've heard the warnings about preparing for Apple's next counter move against jailbreakers. The question is this: have you heeded it?

The problem, according to 9to5Mac, is that Apple's oh-so-clever iPhone engineers are having issues with the A5 CPU getting a tad warm, what with the iPhone being so small and space being at a premium...
