It would be great if Apple updated their stock apps (Maps, Siri, Passbook) through App Store updates like Google does.

I don't need to "downgrade". I should have chosen a better term. If a tweak messes up my phone and I need to restore, I won't be able to restore to 6.1 because Apple would not be signing it after 6.1.1 comes out. I hope you understand what I am trying to say.

The only time you might want to downgrade to jailbreak is on a new device.. And you CAN'T because SHSH is specific to the device.
Please see my response above.

Yea, hopefully they update redsn0w and allow re-restores to 6.1, like they did with 5.1.1

apple are turds, denying their users the choice of jailbreaking their devices, I'm not saying they shouldn't patch bugs but not they clearly seem bitter and arrogant this time around their native iOS is a trasvestie

Re: conspiracy theories, absolutely nothing that ever gets put into a .1 update could possibly compare to the benefits of jailbreak, sheesh.

Jailbreak was everything I needed for a bit. Not in a hurry for a new update now.

Please see my response above.
Check Big Boss. There is a feautre that will let you disable a Cydia app that causes stability issues -- I can't remember where I read that yesterday. I think it's Big Boss... yes it was: http://thebigboss.org/ios6-jailbreak...and-protection

"3) If you have any problems booting your device at any time, remember you can boot by holding volume up button while booting in order to enter a safe mode where you can then get into cydia and uninstall stuff causing your problems. The volume up reboot should allow you to get into the device protecting you from just about anything that can go wrong in cydia so you don’t have to restore your device."

And you can always install 6.1 using custom restore and the SHSH pulled down from Cydia.

Or, god forbid!, allow both as with iOS 5. I liked wirelessly downloading them and then making playlists for long drives, etc. My biggest gripe with the app right now is that it doesn't auto delete like its supposed to. That and no playlist option.

Ahhh, thank you sir! I did not know about the "volume up" trick. Phew!

Leaving this un-patched would offer a significant vulnerability that could be used maliciously. These vulnerabilities are serious and that is why most exploits used to JB a phone have been patchable via Cydia even before Apple officially releases an update.
Apple prioritizes fixes for exploits based on how serious they are. The exploit sequence used in evasi0n requires- 1. physical access to the device to plug it in. 2. disabled passcode 3. user intention. Therefore it is not urgent for Apple to fix this immediately, though they are certainly working on it.

Contrast this with previous exploits like libtiff and jailbreakme.com- those were extremely serious because they could be triggered just by visiting a malicious website, without user intent. A fix was released very soon because of how dangerous this situation was.

Same here. I don't get all this excitment about jailbreak! I jailbroke mine and it's clearly not the same after that. Battery indicater does not show corrctly, drops like 10% each time, it's noticably slower, winterboard crashes!! I mean wtf? Isn't this the reason we like Apple products? So we don't have to cope with that crap?
