iOS Hacker Planetbeing is Reviewing the Publicly Available Version of iOS 6.1 Right Now
iOS 6.1 was released to the public by Apple just minutes ago, and already, iOS hackers are hard at work doing what they do best – hacking iOS. Planetbeing has Tweeted that he has noticed the public release of iOS 6.1 and has mentioned that he and the other hackers are looking into the update as of this writing.
MuscleNerd confirmed earlier today that 22 different variants of iOS 6.1 devices would be supported by the jailbreak when it is released. This includes the new iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G, iPad Mini, iPad (fourth-generation), and numerous older iOS devices that can run iOS 6.1 (check our post for the full list). The only devices that wouldn’t see support for an iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak at this point in time are the Apple TV 2 and Apple TV 3.
Now that the public version of iOS 6.1 is in the hands of the evad3rs, the iOS hackers can work on creating a tool that can jailbreak iOS 6.1, getting all the bugs worked out, and finally releasing an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 for the first time since its launch in 2012.
It’s only a matter of time now folks! Please remain patient and continue offering positive support for the people that bring us these jailbreaks at no cost.

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

Is it safe to accidentally upgrade now?
Or should I wait until 6.1.1, and make sure its an accident?

The new law that passed making it illegal to unlock your phone, does the same apply to jailbreaking?

Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!

It is safe to update to 6.1 using itunes restore. But be warned it seems apples servers are slammed and it'll take a while to download.
