Anyone tried iOS 6.1 on the 4th gen. iPod Touch?

I'm still on 5.1.1 due to all the bluetooth problems reported with iOS6. Just wondering how 6.1 is.

Same, I'm still on 5.1.1 as well. Waiting for people to comment on the performance of iOS 6.1 on it. I want to know if there's any lag when scrolling through the music app.

If you guys can make a short video on it, even better!

I updated to 6.1 today. I do not see much of a change from the 6.0 version. I was able to play a round of Temple Run without the iPod lagging too much. But that could also be due to the fact that the iPod rebooted. I'll give it a couple of days and update my thoughts.

Has anyone tested the free memory yet, because IOS 6 definitely had less free ram than 5.1 and with only 256 mb ... well you know

Bluetooth problem seems to be fixed... my iPhone 5 is no longer cutting off the first 2 seconds of songs.

Ok, took the plunge today and updated to iOS 6.1. Downloaded the whole firmware through iTunes.

Quite ok. I've only touch the music app (because that's the only thing I use my touch for), and it's quite sleek, very little lag. Overall, I'm satisfied.

Went to 6.1 here too. Glad to report no problems with my Motorola bluetooth headphones. Thanks for all the responses.

I restored from backup on the 6.1 update and it's a bit faster. I am going to jailbreak it on Sunday

Thumbs up Yes

My touch 4g works great with iOS 6. Granted there was an error and my iPod was accidentally restored. But now it's ok and faster than ever.

Aside from x.x.1 releases, this will probably be the last update for the 4th gen. No way it could run iOS 7. Glad performance is good with the latest update.

Don't come to a conclusion so quickly, you never know.

IOS 6.1 is smooth with limited "lag" it is jalbroken with the recent jailbreak released yesterday. It is not going to be as fluid as the iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 due the 800Mhz processor and 250mb of RAM, but it does its job at the end of the day

Same, jailbroken. With some tweaks, it runs faster.

6.1 stock is quite stable. Most works without lag. Although App Store and iTunes still lag

4th Gen iPod Touch here, and running 6.1 fine since the day it dropped.

No problems, but I don't use Bluetooth.

For what it's worth.

Maybe just an impression, but I think 6.1 a much better experience than 6.0.x on iPods Touch 4 th gen.

I tried iOS 6.01, and wished I hadn't. I don't utilize Bluetooth, but for everything I do, iOS 6.1 has worked quite well.
Lately, I've had an infrequent/intermittent problem with delayed printing of characters when I'm typing at a natural clip. I could be a number of things, I just don't know which. Has anyone else experienced this?

Beware of stinking Facebook when you upgrade! It will take over your Calendar and Contacts leaving entries you cannot delete! Go into Settings > Facebook > and switch off Calendar and Contacts. Thanks to Utilitap, maker of Week Calendar, and their VERY fast query responses, I hadn't broken too many glasses!

After it all, I still hate Facebook! Before I had the answers, I tried to delete the errant entries which was impossible! Then I tried to delete Facebook, and it decided I was a hacker, so it blocked me from killing it! As soon as I fixed the problem, I went back to Facebook, AND I KILLED THE HATEFUL THING! Now I feel better! Time to sweep up the glass!

So then there is no reason to update?

Can you elaborate on "faster than ever"?

Ok but can you elaborate as to what makes it a better experience specifically? Thanks
