    Apple has just released IOS 6.0.1 for OTA and iTunes update. Anyone interested in potentially jailbreaking their iPad2, 3, 4, or Mini, in the future is advised to steer well clear of this update until such time you hear it is safe to install:D

    And don't forget to save those blobs! ;)

    Thanks for the heads up, it's always great peace of mind having up to date blobs ;-)

    Oh, and before I forget, IOS 6.1 beta has just been seeded to developers for testing... :)

    In an interesting twist, it appears as though the 6.0 signing window is already closed, around 8 hours after release if I'm not mistaken (just verified with my iPhone5 when trying to restore 6.0 and received an unexpected "Device not eligible for requested build" message), meaning Apple are tightening up on SHSH Blobs signing Windows... :(

    Fortunately, I followed my own advice and saved my iPhone5 SHSH Blobs around 2 hours ago using redsn0w when the Window was still open! :D

    All the more reason for interested parties to keep a very close eye on the hacking section.

    Confirmed by @musclenerd (so it's official :)), the 6.0 signing window is well and truly closed, so if you have not saved your SHSH Blobs for 6.0 yet, it is now too late :(

    Just checking, assuming it was yesterday where the 6.0 blobs were still open and I was on 5.1.1 not wanting to go to 6.0 because it is still unjailbreakable, how do I get the signed blobs without upgrading to 6.0?

    You can only get blobs for an iOS version you are currently on and only while Apple is still signing that version. Apple is no longer signing iOS 6, so there is now no way to get the blobs if you don't already have them.
