But, yeah, regardless of how long it takes (it usually takes me about 2 hours to do - with 150+ apps installed) - you do have to do the whole process over again from the beginning. Just like you never did it a couple of days ago.
And, yes, I feel your pain! I'm the "IT" person for 4 jailbroken phones, one JB'd iPad and one iPod. I gave a huge sigh of exasperation when iOS 6.1.2 was released. But, whatcha gonna do? Cause my plan is to always stay as current as possible...
Suggestion for a new "sticky"
List over must do updates!
Is 6.1.2 really worth the effort, is this battery fix (?) something i must ?
Oh yes 3 days, at least when you have a dog, a lot of food to prepare, three granary breads to make, and mum is just turned 86,
One day to collect the data, day two first attempt - which usually chrashes due a silly error ( like my mac mini that runs the Itunes, suddenly "takes a nap") day three do the real evasion process
Took me like 45min from backup to fully restored and jb on 6.1.2....not sure where all day comes into play unless you are downloading the new iOS on a dial up connection....
Does installing with DFU mode not delete all the apps you installed
Better late than never, we now have an updated guide for upgrading a jailbroken device - HOW-TO Upgrade your 6.x Jailbroken iPad
