    Exclamation iOS 6.1.2 about to be released?

    An iOS update to fix the zombie passcode security bug and Exchange issues is expected to arrive around February 20, according to new claims from German-language Apple site iFun. The site, which previously played Nostradamus for the impending release of iOS 6.1.1 for iPhone 4S, says iOS 6.1.2 is already in the works and will be seeded to users within the next week.

    You may want to update to iOS 6.1 (and jailbreak) if you have not already...

    It's most likely a hotfix yet again, meaning the Evasi0n exploits are still working with it. Have to wait until the release to see if it's definitely the case or not.

    iOS 6.1.2 about to be released?

    To add the usual caution (that we add every time a release is imminent): Never upgrade to a new iOS version until/unless the jail break developers (in this case, the evasi0n team) specifically state it is safe to do so. Even if its "just" from iOS 6.1 to iOS 6.1.2

    So, yes, if you are on the fence about jail breaking, do move to iOS 6.1. You don't have to jail break your iPad - but you should be at the most current version that has been verified to HAVE a jail break while you decide; you don't want to be caught out...

    This may all be nothing and the next iOS version may be as easily jail broken. But, we don't know. So, be safe - not sorry.

    I'm sure it will be announced in the iOS 6 jailbreak status thread as soon as it's known that it's safe to update.

    I don't undersand the Apple signing thing. If someone can clarify this for me.

    I have an ipad 3, which is still IOS ver 6.0.2 non jailbreak (also ipad mini IOS 6.1 JB). If I upgrade my ipad 3 firmware after apple stopped signing 6.1 via Itunes with usb cable, will itune upgrade my firmware direct to 6.1.2 (bypassing 6.1 and 6.1.1)? Or it will be 6.1 then 6.1.1, then 6.1.2?

    If I didn't upgrade IOS all, and apple closes the signing window, will I be stuck at 6.0.2 forever? Will it be compulsory to upgrade, and by not upgrading, apple closes you out completely for any future upgrades?

    So worst case scenario, I should save the blob for my ipad 3, so that I can DFU to IOS 6.1 (which is jailbreakable) even after the signing windows closed? But the blob thingy, so far this a just a precautionary measure as method to utilize the blobs have not been cracked yet for IOS 6? So confused ...

    Thank you.
