From what they've said, the "beta" that was just released over the weekend is essentially a GM, and a release is imminent. They are thinking the release will be out sometime this week. The "this week" tweet makes things more interesting now. Can't wait to see what they have for us!

I wonder if they will have a hack like they did for the 4s that lets us restore the jailbreakable firmware once the window is closed.

No, Chpwn is an example of a JB dev which does tweaks.

Backwards compatibility helpers have been made before. (increased the backwards compatibility of some tweaks)

But yeah, you are still probably right about your thought.

That was on the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 or earlier. It was because they had a bootrom exploit.

Not accurate, there is a downgrade for the 4S on 5.x.
At the moment there is no downgrade from 6.x

But that was the case with 5.x also until they found a work around.
I expect the same for 6.x after some time...

Apple has been known to release and then (like the next day) release a minor .01 update that throws off all the JB'rs. The JB team might wait a couple days for the dust to settle.

Looks like I may have been wrong (hopefully) after all.

I'll still believe it when I see it, but a 6.1 JB would be donation worthy if for no other reason than iBlacklist and PDANet.

Crossing fingers, but I'm still of the belief they'll find some wacky reason to excuse delaying the release ad nauseum...

First time for everything if I'm wrong though

Eh, apple will likely release a .1.0 update to patch the jailbreak, but that won't be right away. And just don't upgrade your firmware in that case.

I haven't seen that, what has happened is tha Apple released an update within a few weeks to fix the security holes unveiled by the jailbreak

Anotherone starting to believe...

Btw if you purchased iBlacklist on a different device you need to re-purchase for 50% price which really is a ripoff!

Agreed.

iBlacklist sucks IMO. Buggy, expensive, bad customer service.

BTW traffic on the forum is picking up in anticipation for the JB.

After the release will be busy 'fixing' the broken jailbrakes and telling people that it is normal that Cydia is unreachable because of high traffic volume...

So if Apple releases the new update and you want to Jailbreak your iphone that is on 6.0, you should wait for the jailbreak and not upgrade to 6.1 right?
