    I think it has more to do with how the delta updates work. Plus if i recall the last time a jailbreak was out (iOS 5) OTA updates and jailbreaks caused more issues than anything. Thats why its best to restore within itunes and get iOS 6.1 that way.

    Figured it out!
    If iTunes can't connect, it reverts back to the old layout, kinda weird and cost me a couple of hours for doing a restore when I didn't need to!

    Three problems, all theoretical.

    1. inconsistent SHSHs. If JB devs find a way to use old APtickets for 6.x downgrades, OTA blobs will probably be worthless. Since they don't yet have any use for 6.x blobs, its moot. But if they do, not having good SHSH blobs of 6.1 might someday ruin your chances of jailbreaking a future OS release.

    2. unknown changes in deltas (files moved? files touched or updated differently? differences in file contents?)

    3. much harder for devs to test. The official word is "OTA is unsupported" though evad3rs devs say it should probably work, they can't guarantee it will. ipsw based 6.1 installs ARE being tested actively, as we speak. By the time the JB drops, it should be pretty much solid and foolproof. OTA based 6.1 installs might also work, but you get to be the guinea pig.

    Stupid question. I have a 6.0.1 jb. Do you think that the tweaks compatible with 6.0.1 will be compatible with 6.1????

    You may want to wait due to the fact that those tweeks my not be compatible right off the bat.

    Some may but others not. I would just make sure the dev updates there tweaks to 6.1. Or give the ok to run them

    Question for Devs... Have any of them confirmed if Dreamboard works with 6.1 yet? I am still using it (yes, I know) but the theme and tools I have, I really enjoy.

    In the current RedSn0w you can re-restore any A5/A5X device as long as you have the SHSH blobs meaning if you break your device you can re-restore it. However this only works with devices that have been updated via iTunes. That is why there is a big fuss about updating via OTA...

    So can I still jailbreak my iPad 3 6.1 if it has an OTA update? I understand SHSH signatures may be different, my my pc is broken, and I can't restore as I will have to use a friends pc to jailbreak.

    That's because that the latest firmware. iOS 6.1 is supported though so know need to worry. A word of advice to everyone though get your shsh blobs by using TinyUmbrella...
