    What are the odds that an iOS 6.1.1 is released patching all of the holes of the jailbreak and adding a couple of non consequential miniscule "features"

    But, I sure won't be upgrading to 6.1.1 and losing my jailbreak. :D

    It's a funny question, actually.

    When 5.1.1 was released in Mid may and was exploited, Apple didn't release a 5.1.2 update to patch it. They waited all the way until iOS 6 in September.

    There is no guaranteed timleine of when they will patch it, bus as others have said above, given by prior experiences other than 5.1.1, it's only a matter of time.

    That said, 6.1.1 will likely take a few weeks at least to be released after the jailbreak is released, so make sure you "clean" your phone and stay away from suspicious tweaks so you don't have to restore, and thereby stuck on 6.1.1 (if on an iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 5 or iPad 2 or newer).

    I have faith that they have a heap of exploits primed and waiting for the next major release after 6.1, should Apple release one.

    I think apple will let this ride. Yes the jb is losing apple money in terms of apps Etc. but a lot of people have been upgrading and buying iphone, iPads this week that the jb is coming out . Few of my friends went to android due to no jb at the time, they are raging now

    I think they will have an update sometime in the future, more so to fix the last few remaining bugs that some people are still having and most likely will fix the jb exploit as well.

    Yep it has. But if 6.1 is any indication, it's a crap update.

    *edit*

    Here are the release notes:

    iOS 6.1.1 beta 1 includes the following improvements to Maps for Japan:
    ● Improved pronunciation of roads during turn-by-turn navigation
    ● Optimized directions to more strongly prefer highways over narrower roads
    ● Now indicates upcoming toll roads during turn-by-turn navigation
    ● Added labels for junctions, interchanges, on-ramps, off-ramps, and intersections
    ● Added indicators for transit station buildings, subway lines, and traffic lights
    ● Updated freeway color to green
    ● Updated icons for some location categories including fire stations, hospitals, and post offices
    ● Added 3D buildings including Tokyo Station, Japan Imperial Palace, and Tokyo Tower

    iOS 5.1.1 was jailbroken. Didn't Apple just ignore it and leave this available for months even with the exploits?

    Unless the exploit is a serious one, they could probably care less. I think the PDF exploit was fixed pretty swiftly if I remember correctly.
