    There are a lot of dodgy sites, some of them have "absinthe" in the name
    so I'd hesitate to recommend trying one at random, without a closer look.

    But OSX Daily has a list of direct links to the Apple server:
    iOS 6.1 Update Released [Direct Download Links]

    (by the way, which model is yours?
    Sometimes apple delays release by a few hours (????) for certain models in certain regions.)

    Apple occasionally changes the official name of a release, without changing its actual build number.
    e.g. iOS 6.0 GM -> iOS 6
    iOS 6.1b5 -> iOS 6.1

    Its certainly possible for them to do the other thing,
    and update build numbers without changing the product name.
    As far as I know, they've never done that before. But there's no reason they can't.
    And some reason they might want to. :)

    Just to be clear, should I restore and update through iTunes or is it ok just to update through iTunes without a restore?

    GSM.
    Unless you only use it in USA or Japan

    Did you download the update with iTunes?
    Or independently, then used iTunes to restore?

    For both the above,
    I wonder if 6.1 may not be recognized as "the latest" for all devices in every region.
    I had thought that verifying the hashes was done at a central spot (via Cupertino). Possibly its not?!

    You should be just fine with an update
    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!

    Make sure you downloaded the right firmware. There are several different kinds of GSM iPhone 5 firmware now for both U.S. and international. Best bet is to download the firmware directly from iTunes so iTunes can pick the firmware for you.

    Yep.
    Unless you're using an older device with a tethered 6.0 jb, or any device now running a version that you updated via OTA. In those cases, you'd probably be better off restoring to 6.0.x first, if you still can. Probably not necessary, but prudent, IMO.

    If you've already updated to 6.1 via OTA, get the 6.1 ipsw and restore to that.

    AWESOME, can't wait for Cydia to start crashing like crazy, and i mean that in a good way, I just love when the day of the new ios jailbreaks come.

    can anyone tell me if there is the 6.0.1and 2 tethered jb also works for 6.1, or do I have to wait until untethered is released?
