My battery life is the same as before. The update made no difference. I was recently playing around with that and put the brightness all the way up and my battery got sucked away rapidly. I moved the slider to about a quarter from the left which is just bright enough and not too dim for me in most lighting and the battery lasts well into 68% after using the phone for 9 hours (not watching videos, but occasionally texting, doing a little twitter here and there all day).

    I just figured if the devs say they have a jailbreak on 6.0.2, I want to be there also.

    this is not true. They actually received well over $40,000 in donations. If I remember the quoted figure, it may have been almost $80,000.

    Not a bad little bit of side money, even if it were divided amongst a few.

    I believe you are referring to Comex and jailbreakme.com right? I think it was $40K in donations for the first one and $15K for jailbreakme2 if I remember correctly what Comex said.

    Yes, I believe you are correct. Sorry if I confused them.

    The level of desperation I'm at without a jailbreak I'm sure I would help boost jailbreakme3's total!

    Enough to nearly get me divorced should I say!

    since they are no longer signing 6.0.1 should I update from 6.0 to 6.0.2? TIA

    Definitely a god chunk, however who was that split with? What percentages and such ya know? as a guess from figures I know of what themers have made (and tweaks sell well more IMO) popular tweak devs are bringing in 6 figures if not close to that.

    I guess my point is, yeah the donations are great however the tweak devs and such are the ones that make the monies.

    Again this is all speculation on what I've observed being a cydia merchant myself

    I'm planning on buying an iPhone 5 at the end of this month
    I won't know what firmware it will come with but just wandering will it be jail breakable ?

    Your guess is as good as ours. If 6.1 is on it then it is debatable if there will be a jailbreak. If the jailbreak requires 4 bugs and say Apple inadvertently has patched 2 of them in 6.1, then obviously the jailbreak won't work\be complete\possible. In that case the devs may decide to hang on to the 2 bugs that were not patched and look for other bugs they can use along with the bugs they have to make a complete working jailbreak in 6.1. Consider if Apple inadvertently patched all 4 bugs that are used with the un-cooked jailbreak they have and are working on with 6.0.2, they have nothing to lose so they may release a jailbreak for 6.0.2. Typically though we have not seen them do this for an iOS version that Apple is not signing anymore. Judging by what they have said they don't have the jailbreak for 6.0.2 fully operable so it sounds like to me they wouldn't release a half-baked jailbreak with the signing window closed anyway. We can only hope the bugs that Planetbeing used in 6.0.2 to jailbreak all still exist in 6.1. If it makes sense to release a jailbeak for 6.1, they will. Just realize every time they release a jailbreak they lose the bugs they found that allowed the jailbreak to happen because Apple WILL patch them on the next version of iOS.

    Good points and although Planetbeing is on 6.0.2, they're waiting for the final release of 6.1 to hit. To me, this means that the Beta versions of 6.1 have exploits that the Devs are hoping will stay open once the GM is released!

    Time will tell....

    I bought an iPhone 5 two days ago, it has 6.0.1 loaded on it. I have downloaded the 6.0.2 IPSW but haven't installed it...yet. I plan to do this over the next few days.
