    You're trusting the company which forces us to jailbreak our own personal property (and which intentionally rewrites code to wreck the jailbreaks) to store your jailbreak code, when their TAC permit them to delete it. Then you tell other people that it doesn't matter, and even condemn and ridicule me for pointing out the risk.

    We apparently have a very different definition of the word "smart" on this side of the pond.

    Indeed, we have now established I am foolish, too trusting, and not very smart. I guess the last 20 years as a software developer and the last 5 years jailbreaking have been a waste of time

    Certainly I'm not smart enough to realise that Apple have been forcing me to jailbreak. I thought it was a personal choice.
    Obviously I'm too naive to believe that Apple (as well a Google, Microsoft, Samsung, Nokia, etc. etc) are commercially, contractually, and morally obliged to fix flaws in their software, not only to protect themselves but also their consumers.
    Too stupid to see that they "intentionally rewrite code to wreck the jailbreak" I guess.
    Too dumb to understand that if all the bugs, which the jailbreaks use, were left unfixed then our devices would be pillars of stability and usability and that would be in the best interests of everyone. I wrongly assumed that some folks might try to take advantage of those flaws for their own interests. How foolish I am.

    I must contact all my colleagues in the jailbreaking community immediately because the truth about iCloud must be spread. iCloud is not safe for jailbreakers. But wait.... I'm pretty sure all the JB dev's are much smarter than me, and I don't see anyone else proclaiming that the use of iCloud (an encrypted storage service) for backups must be avoided by jailbreakers because we risk the loss of our data for simply being jailbreakers.
    Hmmm. Not too many forum posts about it elsewhere either... Phew. Maybe I'm not as massively stupid as I thought. Just foolish and not very smart.

    A question for you (since you are smart). Does Apple wilfully and illegally decrypt all of my iCloud data in order to peruse it using my Apple ID and Password? - http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4865
    Or maybe they have a secret back door? Or maybe, it's not even encrypted! They are not to be trusted after all...

    Running a spam filter over an email to pick out a term such as "barely legal teen" (even out of context, because hey, big surprise, spam filters are not smart - just like me) is a million miles away from Apple wilfully and illegally decrypting a backup data store and sifting the contents for evidence of jailbreaking. The first one is plausible and can be evidenced. The second one is pure make believe and there is zero evidence to back it up.

    So one last time, with feeling... in the context of this tutorial guide relating to upgrading your jailbreak -

    It does not matter whether you use iTunes or iCloud to backup your device, although using iTunes on your PC (even as a one off for this process), is usually faster than relying on the cloud.
    and I still wholeheartedly reject that, according to you, this is no longer true.

    Oh, wow, gee, I didn't realize that you've spent a whole TWENTY YEARS as a software developer!

    I guess that shows me, since I've only been doing data security since 1974.

    I value your jailbreaking skills and advice, but you ARE too trusting.

    Apple is forcing you to jailbreak to get functionality such as file swapping, which is so basic as to have been INCLUDED in BASIC. And every other OS except iOS, since the days when we booted a cold computer through the use of toggle switches, and a "desktop computer" was a computer small enough to bolt a desktop onto it.

    A question for you (since you are smart). Does Apple wilfully and illegally decrypt all of my iCloud data in order to peruse it using my Apple ID and Password?
    What makes you believe that it would be illegal for Apple to decrypt your data, when they have RESERVED THE RIGHT TO DO SO in their TAC, and you freely agreed to let them. They have the ability, they have the motive, and they can't be penalized in any way if they do, or if they delete "codetraband" -- you GAVE THEM PERMISSION. They also already HAVE your AppleID and password.

    If they delete your data, what are you going to do about it? Complain that they followed the policy which you agreed to let them follow?

    Personally, I don't care if you use iCloud, so long as you are aware of the risk and choose to accept it. My ONLY argument is with your telling others that it doesn't matter, as if there is no risk. If it ever DOES matter, a lot of people may lose data without warning. The only reason that it hasn't happened is that they haven't chosen to enforce their policy.

    Woa,so off topic here, and I believe you are so confusing those of us that follow this thread. If you do not like the forum, leave it to those that benefit from the topics

    You misunderstand.

    My ONLY argument is with his suggestion that there's no reason not to back up your jailbreak to iCloud. There is a risk to doing that, which I explain in detail, and which makes doing a local backup a better idea (in addition to being faster, which HE mentions).

    He and I both believe that users should not be bound by the limits that Apple imposes. It's like "Chutes and Ladders" -- he's telling you how to climb the ladder, and I'm telling you how to avoid a chute that can take you back to where you started.

    I have an iPad on 5.1.1 and want to upgrade the jailbreak. Now that 6.1.3 is out, can I upgrade the jailbreak still to 6.1.2 using the firmware I've downloaded from here? Will that still work?

    No, sorry. As it says in the first post, this is not possible. You have missed the upgrade window. The only thing you can do is wait until the a new jailbreak is released which works on the "current" version of IOS at the time it is released. There are no other options, no matter what your status.
