    I disagree, Apple will be scrupulously checking the 6.1 code to tighten up any areas/vulnerabilities especially with a JB on the horizon now. Hence the reason why PB said he didnt see any reason to hold onto a JB for unsigned FW if 6.1 patched those exploits in 6.0.2 by Apple. Sure it goes against the tradition but could be a possibly with how tough it's becoming to JB these days...

    Maybe, maybe not.

    There is no guarantee in either direction, however software will always have vulnerabilities. This is an absolute.

    So you think that apple only "scrupulously" looks for holes to patch when there is a jailbreak on in the talks? Lol. Apple is ALWAYS doing this to prevent any holes.

    They already know jail breakers find them. As long as no specifics are released then apple has no clue what vulns are being used.

    But don't fool yourself apple wants a secure OS they know jail breakers are finding things and they are always working around the clock to close any holes.

    Also as Anthony stated, there will always be holes. It's the nature of software. The only way to be completely secure is never introduce new hardware and software features and keep patching holes found.

    But with new hardware and new features always comes more holes

    Research this thru ModMyI and google.
    You will get your answers.
    There is a spreadsheet being updated with the info.

    Totally agree. Jailbreaking has lost nearly all of its appeal. All the new tweaks are garbage, remakes or garbage. Themes haven't been relevant since iOS 4. The only thing people use jailbreaking for nowadays is pirating apps/music/tethering services and converting to TMobile, which doesn't even provide decent service.

    You make it sound as if I said jailbreaking sucks. All i meant was if a jailbreak comes out, I'll jailbreak my 5 but if not I won't care.

    No I don't actually, but with talk of a JB and 6.1 not being in GM status yet you can definitely bet Apple will be reviewing the code in greater detail than the previous 6.1 betas to reduce possible any exploitable areas in those earlier versions.

    Of course Apple are, that's common knowledge that they want a secure iOS with minimal exploits as possible to prevent Jailbreaking.

    Well sense the iPhone 5 came out someone has found and talked about having founds holes. Yet those holes have not been patched because they were still able to use on 6.0.2.

    Someone saying they have made progress does not frighten apple and really most likely are not using there own resources to find them. Why because as soon as the jailbreak is released they know what exactly to patch.

    Also with out knowing how someone would use a vulnerability makes it even harder to prevent.

    Guess what in saying is this news does not effect jailbreakings future. Atleast in my opinion.

    I wouldn't put too much faith in jailbreak now since all the cydia apps won't be updated to support iOS 6 weeks if not months following a jailbreak release added now iphone 5 has a 4 in screen.Even though I miss quick reply and sbsettings.

    The GM or 5th Beta build hasn't been released as of yet ( Monday is the speculated day possibly ) ...your guess is as good as anyone's. Surely within the month would seem fair wouldn't it? The GM version is purely just fine tuning before the public release.

    What are you excited about? The slightly different-shaped music-player buttons, or the much tighter anti-jailbreak measures?

    Because there's nothing else in 6.1.

    Well there is the ability to purchase movie tickets through Siri with Fandango.

    That's about it though.
