    Just my luck, my new ipad 4 arrived today, delayed by 3 days in the post and 6.1.3 comes out same day.

    Just switched it on to find ios 6.0 installed, wanted to go up to 6.1.2 but I am unsure if it is still being signed.

    has anybody restored today to 6.1.2, is it still being signed??

    any help appreciated.


    (Updated, I just went balls in and its updated to 6.1.2 IPSW fine so to answer my own question its being signed as of 17.56 GMT)

    Give it a try before its too late.
    If iTunes lets you restore to 6.1.2 then go for it.

    Sweet. :)
    It wont be open for too long so glad you got it in before the window closed.

    ----------

    You need to download the 6.1.2 manually and then shift/option restore with iTunes by selecting 6.1.2
    It wont be allowed for too long so if anyone still wants to do a clean restore better hurry.

    Download the ipsw for your device on 6.1.2, in itunes click update/restore using the alt/option key and select your IPSW.

    How long do they generally sign for after new updates are released. I probably won't have time to upgrade my wife's phone until tonight. I was going to leave her on 6.1.1 with JB, but she's been having weird wifi issues. Maybe 6.1.2 will fix it.

    The last few times its only been generally 24 hours or so.
    I am not sure if the time windows changes depending on location?

    It was a close call for me, literally pulled up on the driveway and the courier was there waiting to deliver.

    If I had missed it I would be on either 6.0 or 6.1.3

    Luckily its signed still and I have just Jailbroken

    Yeah when 6.1.2 dropped it was a really narrow window of time before 6.1 stopped being signed like max a coupla hours and even then it was spotty.

    Thanks, well I am going to download the ipsw files now. She gets out of work at 7...so hopefully I can get her backed up and going by 8 or so.

    Worse comes to worst she'll lose her JB. She hates not having SBSettings as do I.

    I "think" you'll be ok. What I mean is, so long as you download the IPSW and then shift restore in iTunes directing it to 6.1.2, if its not being signed any more I don't think iTunes will instead auto-install 6.1.3. I think you just get an error and then you might have to hard reset or kick it out of recovery mode. So I don't think you'll automatically lose the jailbreak.

    Someone, correct me if I'm wrong. I don't want to give false information and help him lose his jailbreak.

    Go here and download the 6.1.2 firmware for your device.
    http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=750

    Then in iTunes option + click restore and it will let you navigate to the ispw file that you downloaded. Select the 6.1.2 ispw file and click OK. It will install the 6.1.2 firmware.

    Hurry and do it before Apple stops signing 6.1.2.

    Yep, if you're using a windows computer you need to hold down the shift button and click restore.
    Option is for macs.
