    Default iPad 3rd Gen on ios 5 upgrading questions
    I'll be getting a ipad 3rd gen thats on ios5, will I be able to update it to ios 6 with the ipsw and shift clicking update?
    I ask because I know apple blocks downgrading and only sign ios 7, does the same apply to upgrading?

    Same applies.
    Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
    Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
    To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
    Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
    It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!

    Nope. Apple suck in that way. As soon as you upgrade you are stuck there.
    Samsung have gone that same way now also. They have introduced some crap called Knox which stops you from downgrading also.

    Updated my iPad 3 to 7.0.4 from 6.1 and actually works better. Well, did do a fresh install. And jb.

    Edit: as most tweaks from jb in there. Few missing. But gotta say that these folders on 3x3 icons do kinda suxor. On ipadair and ipad 3. Hopefully someone fixes.
