    Looks like Apple has just released iOS 6.1 to the public.

    Stay tuned for updates regarding the impact that has on us jailbreakers. Resist the urge to install until you hear it confirmed as safe ;)

    @planetbeing has tweeted that the public release seems to be vulnerable to all the jailbreak exploits they are planning on using, so that is very good news.

    It appears that those who want to, can at least prepare to update to 6.1. However, potential jailbreakers should note that any update to 6.1 must NOT use the OTA (over the air) method. Use the full iTunes update or restore operation (whichever suits your needs).

    Personally, I'll be waiting until the JB is released since it will support the current public version of IOS (and therefore, there is no rush at this time).

    According to thomasjtsi at iphoneforums, the signing window for iOS 6.x.x is already closed. That was fast.

    Yes, like the last few releases, it was almost instantaneous. But no excuses! Everyone had plenty of time, and 6.0.x are going to be pretty useless in any case, since 6.1 is the target and is current. Just make sure you save 6.1 NOW ;)

    TinyUmbrella has just been updated to support 6.1, and redsn0w should work too.

    For users that're trying to save their iOS 6.1 blobs, you can use the newer version of TinyUmbrella, or you can use RedSn0w's SHSH Blob feature to save them :) At the same time you can also throw them up to Cydia's server as well for safekeeping.

    I've noticed the the music playback buttons on the lock screen are different, I like the style, not the positioning, but I'll survive. Any other differences that anyone noticed?

    OTA updates give you the incorrect APTickets. APTickets are basically newer version of SHSH Blobs. The difference is that SHSH Blobs are linked to devices, whereas APTickets are linked to instances. APTickets are generated based on your restore rather than the iOS as a whole. So if you upgrade OTA, your APTickets won't be the same as if you were to upgrade through iTunes, meaning you'll be forced to restore to the latest version if you ever need to re-restore or downgrade an iOS if that becomes possible for non-iPad 2s and iPhone 4S's, or even on those 2 device themselves.
