Any word on if it still works with the evasi0n jailbreak?


What a life. Update comes out to fix real bugs, add features, plug security holes, and the jailbreak crowd has to sit back and wait to see if it breaks their hack. And if it does they are stuck in a time warp, their platform is arrested at the version the jailbreak works with, waiting for the hackers to fix their hack if it's even possible. Lather, rinse, repeat. How long did the iOS untethered jailbreak take to release? How many months after iOS 6 came out? What a life, just so you can beat your chest and tell everybody how YOU can do anything you want with your iDevice. Impressive.:confused:

I just wonder why we can't get these updates OTA cellular? Why only with a wifi? Or am I missing a setting somewhere. I've got unlimited LTE. 12MB update won't break me...

Me too - it just seems that things aren't working off the shelf anymore but need patches and patience, lots of patience...


A characteristic notable for it's absence among many of the posters on MR. ;):D

Bricked both my iPhone 5 and iPad 2. Whenever I try to reconnect them to iTunes to restore or sync they both pop up an error -50. Backed up versions in my iTunes Library aren't being supported apparently by the onboard 6.1.2. update. Keeps saying "incompatible database query-"

Nice work, Apple. Totally rush an update and brick a thousand dollars worth of electronics equipment I rely on for my job.


I am sorry ... but this is a little absurd. Real pros wait. You do not take the chance of being down when you business is reliant on technology.

just say'in.

Yeah. It's supposed to not work. It makes you appreciate the exclusivity of having a successful update! :D


Just be thankful that your not one of the poor souls on Android who don't actually know what the word update means :rolleyes: I feel for them. I really do! :(
