On a positive note, my Other space is now a little less than 1 GB instead of 3.5GB.
They will have to update it to work IF the holes arent patched. When 6.1.1 dropped they still needed to update it before it worked.

I guess it's not updating people who were on beta 1 of 6.1.1. Makes sense...

Not all updates are necessary for everyone. I do not have any exchange issues/battery life issues with mine. I have no need to update.

Jailbreaking is not about telling everyone what I can do with my phone. It's about how I can use my phone. All the tweaks that I have installed increase the functionalities of my phone. I don't jailbreak my device just to theme it. Here's a quick example of Apple's stubbornness: Why the heck do they limit how many apps can fit inside a folder? Does it make sense to have multiple folders for, say, Games (like Games 1, Games 2, etc.)? Is it not better to have one folder called Games and have all your games inside that folder? It's thing like this that Apple forces upon us that makes us want to jailbreak.

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....
That came up for me too I just clicked later and then when I checked in iTunes and settings it said it was up to date. Probably another glitch with iTunes.

The network wouldn't allow that. Think of the amount of traffic, especially when a new version of iOS comes out, not just a bug fix like this.

They should allow updates over cellular if they're small (under 50MB, just like apps)

Very few of us are obsessive and will hit update the INSTANT it comes out. The times I've forgotten to update my phone, I didn't see the "update available" notification for a day or so after it came out anyway.

Yes like with 6.1.1 they have to update Evasi0n to recognize the 6.1.2 IPSW if the jailbreak wasnt patched by apple

I very much doubt the jailbreak will have been removed so early. Evasi0n will just need updated for the new firmware.

In other news: next week sees the release of 6.1.3

I used to update IOS straight away in the (mistaken) belief that newer = better.

Now I am wiser.

I wait.
... and wait.

Yeah because this was suppose to be a unreleased version of iOS 6.1.1 before it went public. It's probably going to be renamed to iOS 6.1.3. So of course it's not going to have a update since technically it's ahead of iOS 6.1.2

Bricked both my iPhone 5 and iPad 2. Whenever I try to reconnect them to iTunes to restore or sync they both pop up an error -50. Backed up versions in my iTunes Library aren't being supported apparently by the onboard 6.1.2. update. Keeps saying "incompatible database query-"

Nice work, Apple. Totally rush an update and brick a thousand dollars worth of electronics equipment I rely on for my job.

Just wondering
It should work just fine I was running iOS 5 from beta 1 to the last then my backup worked perfectly fine with the Golden release

I am sorry ... but this is a little absurd. Real pros wait. You do not take the chance of being down when you business is reliant on technology.

You're right. Absolutely right. Fortunately...I fixed it. If you keep the iOS device wired to the computer as you do a total reset (On the device) back to factory settings, iTunes just straight away senses it as a new device. It allowed me to setup at factory settings in 6.1.2 and THEN without asking me it began to restore from my original Backup. Weird, but it worked.

It's understandable, he probably needs his jailbreak for the multitasking. Oh, wait.
