Apple Finally Releases iOS 6.1 to the Public
Apple has Monday afternoon officially launched iOS 6.1 to the public. The update is showing up in the OTA (over the air) updating service and will appear in iTunes if you check for updates. iOS 6.1 Beta 5 was released to developers just this Saturday.
iOS 6.1 contains bug fixes, security improvements, a fix for the touch screen glitch on the iPhone 5 causing the display not to register fast swipes, inclusion of buying movie tickets using Siri through Fandango, more LTE carrier support, the ability for iTunes Match subscribers to download individual songs from iCloud, a new button to reset the Advertising Identifier, and updated iPod music controls on the lock screen.
Jailbreakers will be able to rejoice on this news, as now that iOS 6.1 has been publicly released, the iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak can officially be released in due time. The hackers behind the jailbreak will be using their time to try and perfect the jailbreak and create a tool that can jailbreak all 22 variants of the iOS devices that can run iOS 6.1.
If you’re on iOS 6.0.2 right now, we recommend you stay on it until hackers give the green light to update to iOS 6.1. When they do, it is recommended you use iTunes and not OTA updating.

Now my time will be wasted hitting refresh on mmi's home page waiting for the announcement of the untethered jailbreak.
Thank you for making me worthless.

My iPhone is up for sale in ebay, the auction ends tomorrow. Do you guys think I should cancel the auction and wait for the jailbreak to come out so I can jailbreak and sell for more. If the jailbreak is going to come out in the next couple of days, I would hate to miss out on the extra profit from jail breaking. I'm not sure how fast they will get the jailbreak out though.

I am very excited!
Don't Update to iOS 6.1 right now.. Wait any word from the iPhone Dev Team or Pod2G !
