    iPad2 6.1.2 w Evasion to iOS 7.1.2 gotchas?

    Oh so Apple is still signing 7.1.1 so maybe go that route then. With me being so far back at 6.1.2 I don't want to wait too long to go to 7.x since that upgrade path will be shut down once iOS 8 is released and they stop signing 7.x. The main reason I want to upgrade is the frustration with some...

    iPad2 6.1.2 w Evasion to iOS 7.1.2 gotchas?

    I currently have an iPad2 64 GB w 6.1.2 w Evasion jailbreak on it. Since iOS 8 may be release in the upcoming months at which time Apple will probably stop signing iOS 7.1.2 I am thinking of going to iOS 7.1.2 and possibly jailbreaking it with Pangu. Since there is no way of returning to 6.1.2...

    iOS7: JailBreak Status Thread (Official)

    You have to restore via a local file preferably to iOS 7.06 using DFU mode. This will cause you to loose all the information on the device requiring you to restore a backup as well as jailbreaking the device again with the current EvasiOn file.

    iOS7: JailBreak Status Thread (Official)

    I am sitting on the fence with my iPad2 that is evasi0n jb at 6.1.2. I can do the upgrade to 7.0.6 and then jb using the recently released evasi0n updated for 7.06. Since this is older hardware there is no going back. If iOS 7.0.6 proves to be a slug on this iPad2 I will be sol. With 6.1.2, I do...

    Apple Security Update

    Update to 6.1.6 for devices like iPhone 3GS that can not take iOS7. Devices capable of taking iOS7 like iPad2s will have to upgrade to 7.0.6 to get the security patch which fixes SSL/TLS man in the middle attack. Does not appear one will be able to stay at 6.1.x on iPad2s for example as no...

    iPad 2 JB at 6.1 any point upgrading to 6.1.2?

    I updated from 5.1.1 to 6.1 and one problem I had was I could not get the ipw to upgrade properly via normal means even after using DFU. I wound up having to use RedSnow to apply the .IPW file to get the ipad to 6.1. I haven't had any problems with apps themselves.
