    I don't quite get the story here. You are talking about exploits for JB. Ok, fine. So with every new release of IOS there are less holes and bugs, therefore less exploits, right. Well, no wonder, since the last IOS versions, let's say, starting from IOS 4 until today, brought us only minor improvements. So, if I imagine that over the years Apple implemented improvements, such as, Zephyr, Forecast, BiteSMS, Check and similar (BTW tweaks and Apps I couldn't live without), than IOS would be full of holes like Swiss cheese and jealbreak would be a joke. Probably, but in that case we wouldn't need any jealbreak. So, as long as Apple doesn't make IOS more user friendly, jailbreak is a must. Period. I just can not believe that those tweaks integrated, would be such a risk for stability of IOS.

    I would not update.
    If I did update I certainly wouldn't do it OTA.
    No one has mentioned what a nice guy PB is - the only other member of the community that is as nice is MN. Those two just let the crap wash over them. They are far better people than anyone else I know. They are both geniuses and modest with it.
    I have nothing but the utmost respect for them both.

    "what you've just said ... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

    Lmao in all seriousness. What you said was all over the place. Having more holes makes jail breaking worse? iOS isn't user friendly?

    Umm

    You're right, but if you want to have cool features and get more efficient use out of your idevice, then jail breaking is necessary.

    The jailbreak is being tested and worked on for iOS 6.0.2. iOS 6.0 is in the dust. Soon attention will be on iOS 6.1 and not iOS 6.0.2.

    I'm not going to advise updating until an official announcement confirms it's okay to upgrade. And asking right now is too early for anyone to answer.

    They have to realize just like the Xbox that the Jailbreak is the main reason they sell so many units.
    I'm guessing less than 1 percent of iphones are jailbroken.

    You also mention xbox... 99% of people that purchase an xbox do so to play games online, once you mod your xbox it WILL be flagged by microsoft and you will no longer be able to get that console online.
    My xbox is still online. Has been for years.

    All the devs have 6.1, I can't imagine that it would be for anything except that. Especially seeing the 6.1 should be released very soon. It makes 0 sense to release a JB on a firmware that is not being signed. I wouldn't take the risk if you can't get back to a jailbreakable iOS. What if you have a problem during the jailbreak process and need to restore from iTunes, you would be screwed and forced to update to a firmware that there isn't a jailbreak on.

    Just doesn't make sense to wait for 6.1 and then only release one for 6.0.2. Remember that 6.0.2 is only for iph5 and iPad mini. What do peeps with older decides do???

    I got me new iphone5 last Saturday. It had 6.0.1 installed. I couldn't keep my wifi connected and even when it would sometimes connect, it would be REALLY slow. I upgraded to 6.0.2 and it fixes my issues and my LTE is now also really fast. Getting 28mb/s down and 10mb/s up around town. Battery life is much better than my iPhone 4s.

    Upgrade was worth it and I'm sure they'll have the jailbreak work on 6.1 when it comes out.

    Is it good to update from iOS 6.0 to 6.0.1 on my iPhone 4S OTA? The (1) badge for Software Update on Settings app is annoying.

    "The best thing we can do as a community is offer positive support to the hackers, be thankful for their work, and to just be patient. "
    This has always been true , people just need to let the devs pick the time to issue a JB.

    "Planetbeing is the real deal and he has been behind jailbreaks in the past, so we trust his judgment."
    agree 100%

    I agree about not buying anymore iphones if I can't JB them. As far as Apple fixing all expliots , not likely since all new software (even the code I write) introduces potential bugs and hence possible exploits.

    What is the difference between updating OTA and via computer? Why is it not okay doing it OTA?
