    I've already updated over wifi and jailbroken my iPad. My Question now is "Is there a way to fix this"? I haven't had any issues yet, and I want to try and keep it that way.

    There is no harm in jail breaking a device that was updated to iOS 6.1 over-the-air (OTA). You didn't do anything wrong and the jail break will be fine.

    The reason why we emphasized NOT using the OTA is because of a future potential re-restore option. A re-restore was created for iOS 5.1.1 a few months ago. A re-restore enable you to, well, re-restore iOS 5.1.1 in case you borked up your iPad so badly that the only way to fix it was to restore and put a fresh iOS on it. Without the re-restore option, the only choice was to upgrade to the iOS currently being signed by Apple - which was not jailbreakable. So, without the re-restore, people were out of luck if they messed up their iPads/jailbreaks.

    However, due to how Apple changed the APTicket, the re-restore would not work on devices that has iOS 5.1.1 loaded from the factory or from an OTA. The only time the re-restore would work would be when the iOS was loaded on the iPad via iTunes (either the regular way or via shift/restore). A lot of us found this put the hard way...:)

    There is no re-restore option (yet) for iOS 6.1. However, as a lesson learned, we are emphasizing not using the OTA option ... just in case.

    Again, if your iPad was jail broken with an OTA-installed iOS 6.1, you are fine. However, in case a re-restore becomes available, you will want to restore and load iOS 6.1 on it - using iTunes, NOT the OTA method.

    Hope this clarifies thing, a bit.

    Apple should be signing this for awhile? Only reason I ask is because I'm deployed and don't want to update until I get back to the states in under a month.

    I'm confused, what is different about this home screen than what can b done without JB?

    Never have I seen a JB'd machine
    (so I wouldn't notice
    the difference
    In either home screen)

    Nothing major, I like the subtle things, hiding labels and such. I never really theme, i like loading the useful tweaks that add features.

    Was disappointed when I found out one of my fav tweaks isn't compatible, tweak being Gridlock. Hopefully a dev updates it soon.

    Yup. That nasty piece of code once enjoyed by thieves everywhere has curled up its toes, and is no more. Never mind, there are alternatives, like a credit card, for example. We pay for our apps on this forum. We don't encourage stealing.

    I'm having a problem. I think I followed all the directions ok and have even downloaded 2-3 of my previously purchased and 6.1 approved Cydia apps but the top of my screen shows "Exit Safe Mode." No matter how many times I respring it is always there. Any ideas?

    I found my problem... It was an app called Gridlock. I love the app so hopefully it will get repaired soon. It states that it is ready to go but I tried it 3 times and it is a no go on my iPad.

    Does the new Jailbreak method require a live connection to the Internet? That, given I have updated the iPad to the latest iOS and it's ready to go?

    Oh yes, and what is iPad 2 "Hardware Revision A" ?? (one of the .ipsw OS files offered for the WiFi-only iPad 2). I can't remember if I have that, and can't seem to find a definition or a way to find out.

    Thanks.
