Nice! Been waiting for this! :D

I was just wondering though, how do I backup my Cydia apps and tweaks before updating to iOS 6 and then jailbreaking? Currently using iOS 5.1.1 on an iPad 3rd generation.

They probably had found the exploit months ago (there are photos that show Cydia installed on iPhone 5s from months ago that have leaked out). Clearly they were specifically waiting until the 6.1 update because historically that has always been the significant one at cleaning out all the bugs from the initial release. Same thing happened with iOS 5. If they released early then Apple would have closed the exploit up in the most significant bug patch.

But, you are probably right that it will "only get harder to jailbreak in the future". It is a cat and mouse game.

If Apple truely wanted to be a pain in the ass for jailbreakers (beyond the cat and mouse game), they could put more detection mechanisms of a jailbreak into iOS in order to lock the user down and mark their iOS device as no longer eligible for warranty support. There are other apps out there that easily detect if a device is jailbroken and then refuse to work (such as the DirecTV app for iOS). It really makes me laugh because these developers are concerned that someone may use a jailbroken iOS device to rip video content... yeah... why the hell would someone use an iPad for that when they can use their PC?

I thought they were going to release a jailbreak earlier but they waited for 6.1 just in case apple patches the vulnerabilities

PSA: Probably a good idea to get your 6.1 SHSH Blobs saved even if you do not intend to jailbreak (or are not going to Jailbreak soon).

I suspect we will get a 6.1.1 update after the Jailbreak is released and Apple will stop signing 6.1.0. Don't miss this window of opportunity to download your 6.1 SHSH Blob (use TinyUmbrella, does not require that you are already jailbroken).

agreed with Shadrack, make sure you backup your SHSH Blobs.

Can't wait for the jailbreak to come!! Going to do my iP5 and my iPad Mini.

also yes they have had the ability to jailbreak for a while now, but was waiting for the 6.1 release

Jailbreaking iOS and installing Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware are not considered taboo subjects here. Downloading and installing pirated software on any platform are taboo.

I'm at work the rest of the day and can't get to JBing until I get home later this evening. It would really help me if someone would post whether or not the BiteSMS update is iPhone 5 "optimized" (not letterboxed). If not, I may wait to JB until it is.

Does anyone know if a sound profile app exists...basically like the sound profile capabilities of the blackberry. This really would be the only reason I would JB my iPhone.

Eeek! Thanks for the heads up. I was about to JB my iPhone 5 at work during my lunch break but now I think I'll hold off until later this evening. Hopefully things "calm down" by then.

The first ones I am getting when the servers are stable are:

BiteSMS, Unlimtones, SBSettings, Winterboard with the Ayecon theme

soooo ****ed off right now, updated to 6.1, and was ready to restore and do the jailbreak only find itunes has deleted all of my backups, every single sodding one. which is made worse by the fact that windows 8 doesnt have shadow copies automatically enabled like win7. Thankfully i havent lost everything, just my messages and app settings. But seriously come May im jumping ship to galaxy s4, had enough of apple now
