Probably not my place to speak for the poster you quoted, but my reading of the post was to point out some of the shortcomings related to jailbreaking.

I didn't get the idea the poster was AGAINST JB, just pointing out problems that it can cause.

JB if you wish...but don't be surprised when some problems occur.

What about the No-Wifi bug???
No one seems to mention it, but it's real.
Google "iPhone 4s no wifi 6.1" time period last 24hrs/past week and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Anyone else having this problem?

My JB iphone 5 and iPad works Great! I have NO reasons to update this patch. In fact I donít really believe iOS 7 will bring anything worth giving up the JB iOS 6 for. But we will have to see. If Apple does give me a way to theme my OS I wouldnít bother with the JB. I just love the app switcher mods as well as the barrel roll thing. My phone feels liberated since the JB came out and I couldnít be happier.
Itís not the misery you make it out to be or 7 Million devices wouldnít have been JB.
I'm learning as I go and loving it. Even when something goes wrong and I have to remove something. I just hope they update the fold lock screen thing for ipads. I had it working then updated and it sopped. Oh well! Thatís life in the underworld.

Just to get back to all the "jailbreak-haters", 6.1.2 is still exploitable. evasi0n v1.4 will be released soon to support it.

...well, if that's the point they were making, it was a bit dramatic. Sure if you JB you have to maybe stay on a *gasp* older version of the OS until the devs catch up... but according to the 3-4 MILLION people who have downloaded the latest JB so far, it seems like a small price to pay for the added benefits.

What do I know, I have never JB'd anything...

The update put my phone into recovery mode

I have an iPhone 4S. Done the OTA updates many times before with no issues. Full battery and connecting via wifi

For some reason, when I went back to the phone it was non-responsive. I plugged it into power and showed the "connect to itunes" message on the screen and when I connected it to a PC it says the phone is in recovery mode.

I know I can recover, but its a weird bug. The phone has been fine prior to the release.

Once more... Thank you APPLE (again sarcastic)!

Spoken like someone who hasn't used a jailbroken iPhone before. People aren't idiots, there's obviously something about the jailbreak that makes it worth dealing with the hassle.

Cydia is fantastic and so are the apps contained within it. But enjoy staying ignorant, I guess. It's hilarious how it bothers you so much what other people do with THEIR phone.

Apple wouldn't release the update if it 'bricked' devices.

Also, you can't 'brick' an iOS device, just do a DFU restore.

If you want one more point - it's not Apple's fault you dived in and updated not one but TWO devices you rely on for your job on the release night of the update!!

People keeping on stating: "This wouldn't happen under Jobs."

Well folks, similar problems had occurred under Jobs, so none of this is new.

I had a 100 hour work week when iOS 4.0 was released due to a polling bug with ActiveSync (polled way too often without letting the previous poll timeout). You had to get users to install a special profile to each device to change the timeout before they even released a software update.

There have previously been other meeting request related bugs in iOS since ActiveSync support was originally released as well.

Android has had serious ActiveSync problems and meetings bugs in the past as well, so it really hasn't been any better.

So please, your rose-colored glasses can be removed now. Thanks.

Forced into Recovery Mode

It's also jammed up my phone -- it forced it into Recovery mode -- and now the Recovery process won't work.

Anyone else?

One of the biggest reasons I will never jailbreak. So much more work than it's worth....besides the fact that everything I need is in the app store. I love this post!

evasi0n jailbreak v1.4 for iOS 6.1.2 has been released already: www.evasi0n.com

All is working well with 6.1.2 and the jailbreak (did a restore and then restored from backup).
