    Just wondering what issues people have had with the new JB. Im debating updating my jailbroken 5.1.1 ipad to 6.1 and jailbreaking it. The main reason Im asking is I dont want apple to release a patch and break the JB before I do it. However I also wanna wait for any bugs to be fixed if there are any.

    Ive done my 4s and besides the weather glitch I cant complain.

    The major problem everyone is having is slow/congested Cydia servers and incompatible Cydia app/tweaks working on iOS 6.1. In time this will change.

    If you have the iPad 2, you won't have to worry if you have iOS 4 and iOS 5 blobs, which will allow you to downgrade below the iOS 6 threshold. The only major problems would be incompatibility. Traffic has slowed down drastically compared to day 1. Some downloads won't work the first time around but they should a second time around. Install packages one at a time, so that Cydia wouldn't download everything and get caught with an error on the last little piece, which would cancel all your previous downloads and prevent you from installing

    Ive got a 3rd gen ipad but don have 5.1.1 blobs saved cuz I got it after 6.0 released.

    I have my 6.1 blobs so if I wait and they release 6.1.1 of whatever can i still go to 6.1 and JB?

    I personally wouldn't update it. I miss 5.1.1. There just isn't enough available on ios 6. There are vast tweaks, but not many of the important ones that most people want. Custom grids are a pain without the ability to use Gridlock and many of the other old favorites crash.

    The Cydia issue isn't a big deal, that will sort itself out after the initial "mad dash". I'm just not keen on the lack of my favorite things. I had to upgrade by force after my iPad crashed. Couldn't locate my remote blobs and my sister had kindly removed them from her laptop :S

    Just thought I would put my 2 pence in lol

    Ditto. I "lost" a few things in the transition to 6.1 and my iPad right now is just not set up the way I like it. And a lot of tweaks I used are not working anymore (or at least for the moment) so I don't know if I can ever get it back to the way I had it.

    In retrospect I probably should have waited a little while longer to see how things shake out.

    That's the issue with updates and changes, always teething problems. I'm sure they will iron it all out soonish though, they are probably all hard at work updating tweaks and what not. It's a waiting game. I would recommend sticking with IOS 5 until they fix a few things, no point upgrading if you actually end up with less.

    No you can't, and Apple closed the singing window on 6.1 immediately upon release, meaning there was no warning.

    Whilst it is true that there are a number of high profile tweaks which need to be updated, it is already obvious from todays activitiy that these are flowing through quickly.
    There is also a bug in the jailbreak (related to the installation of the Weather comoponent) which will be fixed soon via Cydia. A manual fix is already available for h4x0rs ;)

    Folks can make up their own mind about what to do, but do NOT assume that blobs will save you when 6.1.1 is released. They certainly can't as things stand.
    The launchd exploit is easy to fix by Apple. We just don't know what their appetite is at the moment in terms of blocking the jailbreak as quickly as possible.

    But be warned. You are likely to get little or no time to react if 6.1.1 "goes live", so if you are not on 6.1 already you may very well miss the boat.

    Of course! Good point. Really didn't look at it from that angle. If it's a choice between ios 6 jailbreak, or no jailbreak at all, then it's got to be ios 6. Don't think it will take them very long to iron out app issues and compatibility problems on cydia.

    On my way to jailbreak now, thanks for the push.

    What a coincidence that apple just released 6.1.1 beta. Guess I picked the right time to upgrade and JB.
