    My iPhone 5's iOS version is 6.1. I jailbroke it yesterday. Now, I wanna update to the latest jailbroken version, which is 6.1.2. How can I do that without losing my jailbreak?

    Thanks a lot!

    You cannot update an iPhone 5 to any firmware but the one being signed by Apple. Even if you have your SHSH blobs.

    So, I should just wait for 6.1.4 to be jailbroken and then backup my jailbreak, update to 6.1.4, and restore everything?

    Why?

    So, I should wait for iOS 7 to be released, and then jailbroken, then I can backup, upgrade, restore?

    It won't be jailbroken because it would be a waste of an exploit. The next version of iOS that will jailbroken is likely going to be 7.0 or something after 7.0.

    I see. They don't wanna let Apple know that they've found another exploit just so people can upgrade from 6.1.2 to 6.1.4.

    So, how do people backup and restore from older jailbroken iOS to the latest jailbroken iOS?

    Does the process go like:

    * Backup Cydia stuff
    * Update
    * Jailbreak the update
    * Restore Cydia stuff

    ?

    Thanks!

    Backup, restore device to target firmware, jailbreak, restore data

    I'm happily JB on 6.1
    Why did you want to go up to 6.1.2?

    Really the only reason to be on iOS 6.1.2 is for Siri enhancements, nothing more.

    I'd say the reason to be on 6.1.2 instead of 6.1 is because of the fix for the exchange battery drain bug, not for siri improvements

    If you sync with your exchange calendar then 6.0 had a nasty bug when dealing with invites. If you just sync emails, then there's no point.
