    You can do it OTA but its not recommended as it has more security in it than the ITunes version

    Wifi sync but that's gotta be setup from a cable.

    I wouldn't do it OTA just go threw iTunes when the time is right. As in devs say its ok to do so.

    iOS 6.1 appears to be vulnerable to the exploits we are planning on using.

    In terms of code, we have two proof of concepts that we need to merge and polish, so we will not be ready to release until that and testing.

    So it appears from build numbers 'beta 5' was the general release.

    Apple tried to play it off, but they failed miserably. 😝

    Well. Longer than that. Last year, after 5.1 dropped it took them "6 more long weeks" to release the public untether. So stay calm - we're not there yet. By the time they had the injector ready 5.1.1 was just about out and they waited one more week to make sure 5.1.1 was vulnerable to the same exploits. So we likely still have a long wait, gang. But this is significant! It's no longer a matter of 'if' we get a jailbreak - but "when"!!

    MuscleNerd is hinting Sunday. Although planetbeing was a bit more hesitant to give an exact time frame yet. It shouldn't be more than a week or so I would say.
