Hey guys,

Any updates on battery life? I know you've really only had a chance to play around with it for a day now, so I understand that the results aren't going to be definitive, but if Friday your surfing brought you down to 90%, and today it has you at 95%, that would be something we'd be interested in hearing.

I recall reading somewhere that 6.1 was supposed to really increase LTE battery life, but from reading the comments in this thread, it seems that battery life wasn't something focused on.

The update went as smooth as can be. Thank you! 6.1 seems more responsive. Hopefully it fixed my sound issue. I'll get a better feel for it over the next few days. Thanks again!

This thread reminds me how much I miss the old thread of bug fixes and discoveries. I guess we wouldn't have a whole lot to say with discoveries though...

It seems like it's staying as beta 5

For what it's worth, nobody knows when this beta expires, but someone on the dev forums speculated February 27th, based on the typical beta cycle.

Now I can select music from the Music app as if it was just playing through earphones. Whether that was in the earlier betas I don't know but it sure makes a difference.
That's awesome news. Was such a pain for me since I have a Kenwood deck with no pause button haha. Although what's weird I find is that the audio quality is superior through my AUX cable rather than directly through the USB port. Maybe I have to adjust my audio settings...

As for battery life, I streamed an hour of NHL Gamecenter Live over wifi and it only drained 7% of my battery. Currently sitting at 70% after 3.5 hours of usage. Not too bad for me.

Wow, that's actually longer than I expected. Does a beta usually stay around for that long? And do you think apple released this real quick in hopes that the jailbreak team will release the jailbreak? That's my opinion anyways...I would like to hear what others think.

UPDATE: LOL JK, I got the notification that ios 6.1 is released publicly as I was writing that post. Now, any news on a jailbreak date?

And you asked me by replying as you did to my previous post here. I was talking in general, and you are taking it personally. It was never and still is not personal to anyone. I was just stating the obvious facts. I know stuff everyone here already knows all too well. But heck I wanted to say it so I did.
If you knew i was joking why explain? Doesn't make sense. It's like explaining a joke. You ruin it.

Have read on other forums that there is no expiration date on this one. The jailbreakers apparently can see the expiry dates somewhere in the code. Is that not the case? Their take on it is since there is no expire date this could actually be the GM or public release. Guess still no release notes? That is strange too yes?

[Edit] well yep its a release! Slim update notes I must say. All the stuff listed in previous betas. Hopefully all the underlying bugs for some users were squashed.

Good news about the release. I already updated to beta 5. When I check in software update, it says I'm up to date (6.1). If the release announcement were a different build, wouldn't it pick it up as an update?

I can confirm that the 3GS ipsw I downloaded earlier is the same as the ipsw on Apple's server. I downloaded the file from Apple and the CRC32, MD5 and SHA-1 match what I downloaded earlier today.
