    Any issues so far ?
    Would you recommend leaving 5.1.1 for it?
    Would love your feedback/advice please... Thank you

    It seems to work well, especially since today's update. But I am not sure I would recommend upgrading if you've got a side-gradeable 5.1.1 unless you have a specific reason to upgrade to 6.1. 5.1.1 is a great OS and Corona was the most stable jailbreak I've ever used (and I've been jail breaking since 3.0). And now with 6.1.1 on the horizon I am kinda regretting giving up the safety net of the ability to restore to 5.1.1.

    Zero issues right now... if anything, we're better off than iPhone 5 users until everything is made compatible with the new resolutions. Tweaks I'm running right now:

    Activator
    Adblocker
    Auxo
    BlurredNCBackground
    f.lux
    FakeClockup
    iFile
    Infinifolders
    NCSettings
    Pandora Dowloader
    SwipeShiftCaret
    Winterboard w/ Suave HD
    Zeppelin

    All of these work perfectly. I was having some issues with BiteSMS crashing my phone so I disabled it for now.

    you're joking right?? :confused:

    am on a 4S, and 6.1, and this is the best JB experience i've had to date; sure, some apps need updates, but about 90% of what i need is working (and fixes are coming).

    go for it...

    My battery seems to be dying oh so quickly. Yesterday I understand because I was spending the day downloading and setting everything up. Today was just a normal day though and usage is significantly lower, all of my settings are the same as they were on 5.1.1. Bluetooth only on when streaming music in car, wifi off, auto brightness on and at about 40%, 4-5 signal bars at all times.

    Right now I'm at 59% with right at 2 hours usage. Usually I get two hours usage when I'm at 80%.

    I'm about 99% sure it's probably 6.1 and not the jailbreak. Or maybe I'm just imagining ****. Who knows.

    Other than battery issues, 6.1 jb is completely stable on 4s. Activator is a little glitchy, but all of the other main tweaks I've downloaded have worked perfectly. I've been lucky and have had to safe mode crashes, no long boots, nothing. The jailbreak process itself went really smooth as well.

    I think its just iOS 6.1. I have been having battery issues ever since i upgraded from iOS 5.1.1 to iOS 6-6.1. Nothing crazy but it was slightly noticeable.

    I'm having a big issue with the screen dimming. When the screen starts to dim from inactivity, it used to be that I could just tap the screen and restore the brightness. That doesn't work anymore, I have to click the top button and reclick it to get the screen back to normal. I've had this happen with JB and non JB apps. It happened to me the whole way home today with Waze.

    Other than that, my 4S seems pretty stable, though it seems like I keep running into things i want to download but can't due to lack of update for iOS 6. My iPad 3 is acting a bit more quirky than my 4S at this point.

    At first I was weary because of the weather app and reboot problem.

    But since the update, this jailbreak is buttery smooth on my 4S.

    Installed:
    Activator
    AndroidlockXT
    Appcent
    Callbar
    Colorclock
    Fakeclockup
    Foldercloser
    Infinifolders
    NoNewsIsGoodNews
    PandoraSkipHack
    Sbsettings
    SilentmodeSwitcher
    SwipeSelection
    WeeKillBackground
    Zephyr

    My 4S is a lot quicker on 6.1 then it was on 5.1.1.

    Works fine for me. Still waiting on a few of the tweaks I used in 5.0.1 to be updated for 6.1, but the JB and tweaks I have now are great.

    The updates to Evasi0n etc. fixed the slow boot and weather app problems I had initially, and my phone is running flawlessly. I am glad to be able to use apps that require iOS 6.1 now.

    One thing I do miss, which has nothing to do with the JB, but with 6.1 itself, is that I can no longer record video at 60fps. It used to work on 5.0.1, even without JB you could change a plist to do it, but 6.1 broke it.

    The tweaks I miss most that are not yet 6.1-compatible are appslide and IconRotator.

    There is one thing that's bugging me, and it might just be my imagination, but using FolderEnhancer I'm noticing a delay when I tap to open a folder which has multiple pages. I do not recall any such delay with FolderEnhancer on 5.0.1.

    6.1 on my 64GB 4S is solid except for one issue.

    I occasionally can't get the keyboard to come up when swiping to the spotlight page on the homescreen and have to respring to get it to work again. Even tapping on the search pane doesn't bring up the keyboard. Other than that, Auxo crashes a lot trying to open when double clicking, but that's more related to the application itself. I emailed the developer and they said they were aware of, and working on, a fix.

    Running the following apps:

    Auxo
    BlurriedNCBackground
    Bolt
    CUPS HD
    divByZero
    NCSettings
    NoNewsIsGoodNew
    NoStoreButton
    Winterboard/Dreamboard (though I don't use Dreamboard as my everyday theme, just to mess with on occasion)
    Zeppelin

    Everything works perfect here, no problems.
    Although I was getting an extra 2 hours battery after updating to 6.1, now that's gone cuz of the JB + all my tweaks.

    Have you had any issues with Bars? I had it for a short time and sometimes it would show the correct bars but on the homescreen and some random applications, it would just display 5 full bars regardless of actual service.

    Have you come from 5.1.1?

    I've had that issue ever since I've had my 5. This is my 3rd one due to unrelated neglect and all of them have done that glitch. Bloody annoying isn't it.

    No issues. My only gripe is the ugly music app interface.

    But whatever, I had to upgrade because some newer apps require 6.x

    Forgot to mention the other problem I have: iOS lockscreen notifications are hidden behind my Winterboard theme. Seems to be a problem with Winterboard on iOS 6. I’m hoping it gets updated with a fix.

    Absolutely love this jailbreak. iPhone 4S on 6.1. NEVER updating again and lose my jailbreak.

    Cydia apps include:

    Activator
    Adblocker
    Auxo
    iFile
    NCSettings
    NoNewsIsGoodNews
    Safari Download Enabler
    SBSettings
    Springtomize 2
    Theme It
    Winterboard

    All running without any issues. And now stock Weather app works thanks to the UIKit Tweak update.

    I'd love to buy Noki HD but it is not ready for OS6.1, only 5.1 (as of today). Bummer.
