One thing they forgot is, back up your Cydia apps and tweaks if your device was on 5.1.x and JB'n, or simply write down the names of them.

You should vote for the Colostomy Bag that I'm voting for! This one appears to be better than that other one!

Mentioned at the end of step 1:

If youre currently on a jailbroken iOS device still running iOS 5, make sure to backup your Cydia packages separately so you can get them all back quickly.

I upgraded my "new" iPad 4th gen (which i havent used much) to 6.1 yesterday. I got it for xmas, and havent used it because of the no JB, i am still using the 3rd gen.

What blew me away that the battery only discharged 1%, and it sat in the box for over a month.

There was just 3 essential upgrades as well as a ton of other updates in Cydia, plus Mywi was updated to version 6. So close....

Its funny - I have been living with my IP5 on 6.x (happily) but now the excitement to JB again is contagious....

Miss the hotspot and a few tweaks......

I'm looking forward to this JB just for Full Screen Safari and Five Row Keyboard on my iPad (you're probably all looking at me now like I'm crazy or something), hope they have both been updated to work on iOS 6.1.

Pretty sure that is not a website setup by the team, but I could be wrong.

It's hosted in/near russia and doesn't match how either of the two known official websites were setup.

How do you know that facebook account is official?

The twitter account tied to that "blog" is a fake. Seems logical that the blog is also a fake as it appears they're just posting crap continuously to get more ad revenue and clicks.

Did you read the conversation? He said @evad3rs_jb (who runs evad3rs.net) is a fake. This isn't that complicated...

edit - They ask "is that site fake" and he answers "Yes".
What site?

edit 2 - Ok nevermind. Though I bet the ETA was pretty damn close.

So 12PM EST seems to be the release date. The devs going to sleep on it so they can be awake to deal with issues. Can't wait!
