just like any other firmware (available only to devs though) Just like the beta firmwares..

Final release is in 6 days so just wait for that and then update in Itunes

If you can't live without a jailbreak then wait. If you can live without one then update to iOS5...

From what I can tell. It's best to wait for a jailbreak. Out of all the new features I barely notice any of them. Except the newsstand, reminders and notifications. Oh yeah the shortcuts is the best feature. I no longer have to type out welcome speeches. I can just add a acronym. And boom. Done.

Personally I just upgrade and never think about the Jailbreak but really its down to preference If you dont mind waiting for what could be a long time for a new Jailbreak. Save your shsh blobs and you can always downgrade if you miss the JB too much or if a new JB is taking too long

Did I not read somewhere that blobs won't work for iOS 5? Or are you still able to downgrade to iOS 4...?

if I upgrade to iOS 5 GM, can I update it to final version without using PC?? I mean wireless update...

Yes, I think you can since the option to update upgrade via the air is already in the GM version.
