DO install useful basic tweaks like Zephyr, Remove Background/Backgrounder to kill apps (Actually improves battery life), Tetherme to gain Personal Hotspot for free *your BOUGHT data shouldnt be restricted), and iFile to use the camera kit and unlimited SD cards for unlimited storage, so you dont have to pay extra $100 per 16 gigs of data

DON'T install 5 million themes slowing down your memory.
what that last part 'and iFile to use the camera kit and unlimited SD cards for unlimited storage, so you dont have to pay extra $100 per 16 gigs of data"

I absolutely LOVE Zephyr, mostly to save wear and tear on the dreaded home button. TetherMe is charging $4.99 now. I purchased MyWi a few years ago, and now the slime bags want ANOTHER $4.99 for an "upgrade" that is supposedly iOS 6 compliant...F 'em. I'll have to give iFile a try...thx.

So does it fix the ability to play background video when using Safari/webview?

Does anyone else's iOS devices still randomly change brightness from medium to all the way up? I have the ambient light sensors turned off.

1. This looks like a bigger update compared to 6.1.

2. Pattern?

iOS 5.1 - Siri for Japan
iOS 6.1.1 - Improved Maps for Japan

iOS 5.1 was announced in March with the iPad 3 event and its pretty close to March.

mdworker is what OS X uses to index your drive. Mountain Lion on some systems makes Spotlight constantly re-index your drive and causes other issues. Open up Console.app and if your system.log is being spammed by mdworker messages, you've got the bug. If you don't, count yourself lucky.

Did you try restoring it to factory settings? If after that you're still experiencing problems, it may be a hardware issue.

An expected move by Apple. Those people must be proud over themselves, hunting down jailbreaking like this. Because that's exactly what this is about, a strategic release.

Depends on where you live. In Germany and Switzerland, the Google transit directions are rather useless, almost everybody uses apps developed by the local transit authorities or directly those from the national railways which include all local public transport as well.

Wow looks like those guys in the iOS security department are scrambling like crazy to get this thing patched. This is in contrast to the last untethered jailbreak iOS 5.1.1. Apple sat on that one for almost 4 months. I guess they figured that most people just can't help themselves and will update to iOS 6 or get an iPhone 5, which apparently is what happened judging by how the JB cooled off substantially over the last few months. But this, a jailbreak for the iPhone 5, something they were determined to prevent, has really chapped their ass and they are not about to let it slide. Oh well at least I'm set for the next 6 months or so.

That's not the joke. People like who you get upset over it are.
I also want Safari to be snappier.

When you jailbreak, it installs some stuff like MobileSubstrate and MySQL. I'm not sure if that impacts the performance, but I kept feeling like my iPhone was just a tad slower after the jailbreak even without anything from Cydia installed.

Did you also carelessly install tons of tweaks?

Do you have a exchange account(s)? Delete one, reboot and add it back with a different description name. If that does not help, and you have more than one exchange account repeat. One of your exchange accounts is corrupt. Otherwise restore your iphone via iTunes and setup as new phone (do not restore from backup).

Siri will activates battery with special malfunction to blow your face when you say:

"Safari gets snappier"

Be Careful

In a more polite reply, you may not have any need to jailbreak, but, others do. I jailbreak to improve/add functionalities, not to just theme my device.
To be honest if you didn't want a boring stock IOS then you would've gotten a android phone if customizing is a big issue for you. Just saying.

Boot into safe mode, then reboot. Worked on my MBP, although it comes back when I update to a new build (in which case, I just boot into safe mode again).
