Now supports iOS 6.1.2, in addition to all iOS 6 versions for supported devices.
Only 1.3 is on the site.
They just updated the site, oops.
Give it a sec. They tweeted that it was out
Or you can just pull it down from iDownloadBlog's site:
Haha, I was just there not more than 5 minutes ago and it still only had 1.3.
update iOS then perform the updated JB?
Seems it's better not to update but restore to the 6.1.2 ipsw from iTunes
Restore and then just apply the update same way as inital JB?
Exactly, download the ipsw from iclarified, restore to 6.1.2 via iTunes, then jailbreak again with 1.4
which ipsw do we download for the Verizon iPHone 5 with LTE? The CDMA+GSM, or just CDMA alone?
Also, how do we apply a specific ipsw file again? Hold shift while restoring in itunes?
I think I'll stick with 6.1 and save myself a few hours of restoring/jailbreaking/tweaking. Thanks for clearing up the 6.1.2 update process.
Such a PITA, lol.......all my tweaks!
I don't think there is an iphone 5 CDMA alone is there?
so whats the best way to restore all the tweaks and repos after re-jailbreaking? i've been doing it manually the last few times (3gs, 4, 4s...) I remember reading something about deb daemons but don't remember the details
I just use AppInfo and reinstall everything from scratch. I NEVER had any luck with PkgBackup
I have had luck in the past with PKGBackup, and this type of upgrade (6.1.1 to 6.1.2) is the perfect type of upgrade for this package. When going from iOS4-iOS5 or something major like that, I always urge people to proceed cautiously when using PKGBackup.
Anyways, I'm the same as you. I have a 3 pronged attack for a perfect mirror image backup. I use a combination of iCloud, AppInfo (to email me a list of all app store apps installed, all cydia repos and packages installed, and a detailed list of contacts just to be safe!), and AppBackup to backup up game saves and stuff like that from the app store. It is a foolproof method which never fails. It might seem tedious, but it's actually quite quick. Another reason I prefer this method over something like PKGBackup is that I usually stretch the Cydia package installations out over several days just to make sure everything is working correctly and behaving together appropriately. This way I can keep an eye on stability and battery issues. I rarely have battery issues but I still like to proceed with caution.
I don't necessarily need to upgrade to 6.1.2, but I always prefer to be on the latest firmwares for all my electronic devices. Rarely, and only with specific reasons, do I stay on an older firmware.
very nice but i updated to 6.1.1 just last week there's no way i am going through that again.
where is 1.4? the downloaded file says 1.3...

just updated and jailbroke... pkgbackup makes it a breeze
Does it makes sense to go over all the hassle again? What does we win with 6.1.2 ???
How does that app work? I just install it but how do I make sure everything is backup before doing the update to 6.1.2 and then jail breaking it again?
Exchange fixed, battery life is better and Safari snappier.
Just updated and jailbroken, sweet
Battery life is better? (Snicker)
There are some great tutorials online, I don't remember the exact site but just google search pkgbackup tutorial or something like that. Once it's all backed up restore, jailbreak, install pkgbackup first then just restore from pkgbackup. It will bring it exactly how it was with settings and tweaks and folders and all that.
+1 The horror stories of those who restore Cydia tweaks from backups never ceases on these forums, and if you really want a stable phone long-term, you're still best to manually reinstall your tweaks one at a time from Cydia. Besides, like with any computing device, installing a new OS is always a great opportunity to "clean out the cobwebs" from previous junk you might have tried.
Yes, it takes like 30m to do so, and it's not like one is going to do this all the time. Reinstall it one by one
