This is why I only jailbreak for fun, and try to avoid DEPENDING on a jailbreak for anything.

Right now the nicest thing about my jailbroken iPad is being able to run Google Maps full screen using FullForce. That's literally the ONLY thing I'm doing with the jailbreak that I would miss heavily upon losing it. And maybe Google will release an ipad native version of Maps before then.

Oh, and an SNES emulator. But big whoop, I can play with those on my computer. It's not playable with a touchscreen anyway, so it's more of a "look how cool!" sort of thing.

Yes, it's worth it.

I don't even trust jailbroken devices that much. That's why I'll jailbreak my iPad but never my iPhone.

To all the people asking if evasi0n still works: even if the jailbreak exploit is still present in 6.1.2, evasi0n won't work yet because the team has not updated the software to let 6.1.2 work. evasi0n checks the firmware before jailbreaking.

Yup, also fully charged and plugged in, not jailbroke or any other funny business. This is a 5G touch.

I've been JB'ing since the first release, however I noticed with the recent JB my iPhone 4S, 5 and iPad 2 and 4 were running terribly slow. This is only with the JB and nothing "third party" Cydia wise installed. I also removed "Netatalk" (a Cydia app I liked to use for AFP access) from my iPad's as a test and it still shows up in Finder on the WiFi network. I performed a clean restore of my iPhone's and noticed my battery life was improved immensely and the WiFi was no longer dismally slow.

I checked background processes when JB'en and nothing appeared to the naked eye, which leads me to suspect there is something else going on.

I think you raise a valid point under your mistaken belief people jailbreak to "show off." I actually like some of the jailbreak tweaks and it's worth while. But, I am tired of the cat and mouse and I plan to switch to a Google Nexus phone. Why? iOS has become stale and I am tired of jailbreaking to enable functionality that better my smart phone experience. For example, having to jailbreak in order to share files between apps or to just set a default browser app is an embarrassment to a smart phone OS.

I just updated via iTunes. I had to download the over 800 MB file and it took nearly 10 minutes to install but it worked. The stupid OTA update could not install a 12 MB update which is useless. At least I am up to date now.

All you iPod Touch 5G users? Simply KEEP trying.. It took me 5 or 6 attempts over 2 hours (rebooting and general use between attempts) then it just worked. Good Luck

Works great 6.1.2 on my iPhone 5 (NOT):

After updating and iTunes reporting that my iPhone is on 6.1.2 it (iTunes) tells me that a software update is available (6.1.2) and then updates to 6.1.2, already 3 times now.

The address of Apple: "1 Infinite Loop" gets a whole new dimension....

Please Mr Apple / Tim, can we go back to the situation of 2 years ago when all was working exactly as planned without "Microsoft-like" surprises....

As I mentioned before, I was forced to restore phone for upgrade to 6.1.2. I restored from backup.

Evasi0n and software not there, and Evasi0n does NOT work for me. I went to the website to get the latest version too.

Yeah. It's supposed to not work. It makes you appreciate the exclusivity of having a successful update!

Sounds promising once Evasi0n has been updated.

Tweet from planetbeing..

"Not yet able to test all devices, but it's looking good for 6.1.2. iPad mini wi-fi and iPhone 5 are still jailbreakable."

Well that was fun and NOT!

Updated iPad 4th Gen with 0 issues, quick, simple and no messing with apps, passwords, accounts...

The iPhone 5-32 however was not so easy (and funnily, the iPad was almost out of room and the iPhone was less than 1/2 full). First time tried to update, error -1, reboot and reset iPhone, this time error 3014 (Both times, iPhone in recovery mode grrr...), turn off mac-mini mid-2011, unplug all USB cables except Lightening cable, start MacMini, turn off dropbox, turn off memory clean, turn off SnagIt, turn off Keycard, in iTunes, eject iPad 4th gen and then proceed with factory restore that actually worked this time and updated the software/firmware... but now I have to spend an hour syncing everything and making sure everything works as it was not to mention put everything back into folders that I had it organized the way I wanted it...

Alas, the upgrade took but was a PITA!
