Whats the word on 6.0.1 and iPhone 5?

I remember reading about a month ago not to update to 6.0.1 if you ever wanted to jailbreak iPhone 5 since they closed some holes.

However, with 6.1 around the conner I'm wondering if I should upgrade already or stay on 6.0 on the off chance this weekend is the one!

I have not heard of any news of a release. The A6 might be a bit tough.

But I would say, if you want to Jailbreak, don't update. If they release a JB, it would be released for 6.0 or 6.0.1. If they release it for 6.1, then you can always update to 6.1 then. If you update, then be prepared to do the wait game again for them to release a JB for 6.1. Hope this helps

With 6.0.2 out today and 6.1 on Beta 4, I'm pretty sure they're going to wait till 6.1 final. Anyone else holding out still?

I'm still on 6.0 on my iPhone 5.

I never looked up whether or not if 6.0.1 was safe for JB.

Now 6.0.2 is out.

Should I update to 6.0.1 before the signing window is closed? (Is it even open still???)

Remember! JBers should always avoid updates (like 6.0.2 being offered to some devices today) to improve chances of using any future JB

I was fortunate to get my iPhone 5 shipped on 6.0 weeks after 6.0.1 was being signed. I am not budging until a jailbreak is released.

Is there any way to prevent updates from automatically downloading to the iphone? The software update on the phone indicates an update available, but i don't want to update. any way to delete?

I just bought a brand new iPhone 5 from Verizon today.

It has iOS 6.0.1

The dude in the store was playing with it before he handed it to me and he started the update on it, I didn't know what he was doing till it was too late.

Now it has a message on it that it needs to update to 6.0.2 but the battery is below 50% and it can't update because of that.

I powered it down and did a full reset on it but it keeps telling me it's trying to update and the update failed because of low battery.

What can I do? I am afraid to let it update to 6.0.2 because I need to jailbreak this puppy ASAP.

I need my stuff like I had on my JB'd 3GS......

Thanks!
