iOS 6.0.1 Released with Minor Fixes
Apple has just released a minor update for iOS 6. iOS 6.0.1 has been issued Thursday for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. In total, the bug fixes are minor but should be pointed out, nonetheless.
Some of the glitches apparent in iOS 6 following the release of Apple's iPhone 5 have been addressed in the latest update. I've personally commiserated with a number of iPhone 4S users who have experienced inexplicably disabled Wi-Fi connectivity - a problem that seems to be addressed in the new update.
All told, iOS 6.0.1:
- Fixes a bug that prevents iPhone 5 from installing software updates wirelessly over the air
- Fixes a bug where horizontal lines may be displayed across the keyboard
- Fixes an issue that could cause camera flash to not go off
- Improves reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks
- Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances
- Consolidated the Use Cellular Data switch for iTunes Match
- Fixes a Passcode Lock bug which sometimes allowed access to Passbook pass details from lock screen
- Fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings
The update, which runs 69 MB, is available now.

and the major question is do we update or does that forfeit the ability to jailbreak the iPhone 5 in the future, if the "dream team" quits fightingComputers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons.

It could very well be that the dev team already has a jailbreak for 6.0 and they were just holding on to it 'til Apple released 6.0.1 in case it worked on it as well.
I have an iPhone 5 and have had no trouble at all with 6.0....even including maps. I'll just stick with it.

I, for one, am not upgrading. Simply for the reason that I feel the jailbreak is out there for 6.0. I am not running the risk of losing the possible jailbreak. I will continue to wait patiently.

Jailbreaking your iphone may still be legal, but Apple is getting to the point where that won't matter. Check out the figure below, which shows the number of days it's taken to release a working jailbreak for each new iPhone. It's getting exponentially harder (at least, taking exponentially more time) to jailbreak these devices. Extrapolating would indicate we can expect a jailbreak in about another 5 months. But looking at the security Apple has put into iOS6, my prediction is we won't see a useful (full untethered, non-dev-only) jailbreak within the useful (12-month) life-cycle of the iPhone 5. If you like your iPhone 5 (none of you would be crazy enough to buy an iDevice that you couldn't jailbreak unless you were happy being stone-walled by Apple, right?) then you may as well go ahead and update.

It's truly a sad fact that there is no public jailbreak on the horizon. Non-jailbroken iDevices are inferior to Android in too many ways. It's time to start carefully considering whether we really want to stay in Apple's prison...

Where the H**L is the fix for my car stereo to recognize the USB connection !?!

I could be wrong with both ideas but I know from personal experience some of these newer head units are brilliant..... until something fails and then everything else won't work.

IP5 with Car Stereo
I have a Pioneer in dash unit that has a USB, which allows the head unit to control the iPhone directly. Surprisingly (to me anyway), when I plugged in my IP5 with the new lightning cable, it continued to work perfectly, displaying album art on the screen and everything. I did not update the firmware. I've had the Pioneer for at least 2 years - perhaps I just got lucky.

Anyways, I'm just going to stick to 5.1 till they announce the latest jailbreak. Is it sad that I only like my iPhone when its jailbroken?

I don't know about y'all, but my iP5 Wifi data connectivity and/or latency is horrible to the point I sometimes disable Wifi just to get out. I've even had the latency issue using only the cellular data connectivity as well, although, certainly not as bad as the Wifi connection. I too miss my jailbreak (and all the stuff I've purchased thru Cydia), but fixing the damn data/Wifi issues is far more important to me than a jailbreak. I just can't sit on 6.0 any longer.

Thanks god!!! iTunes Match finally work again for iPhone 5

I do/did have the horizontal lines on the keyboard. And I THINK I may have a problem with the phone not connecting to towers randomly. That might be a reason to upgrade for me but I'll wait on it I have a feeling the jailbreak might be around the corner soon

They wouldn't release for anything other than 6.0.1 I'm sure
.0 releases aren't something to stay on for obvious reasons
