Default IOS 6.1 GM out

Supposibly this is the version the devs were waiting to release the jailbreak. Save your SHSH blobs and update through iTunes if you are interested in jail breaking later on.

Looks like the jailbreak is good to go. I'm not sure if I'm going to update my 4, have to see how other people's phones are running / if it's worth it.

I find most of the slow downs are major updates. eg. 4->5, not the point updates. I'm cautiously optimistic iOS 6.1 won't be significantly slower than iOS 6.0.

One can only hope this means the Apple TV 3 is a real step closer to a jailbreak.

I kinda want to get another Apple TV for use with FireCore ATVFlash, but no way in Hades am I paying $200-300 for a Craigslist Apple TV 2.

P.S. I assume this doesn't work for the iPhone, but right now you can restore an iOS 6 Apple TV 2 to iOS 5. Apple is still signing iOS 5 for this.

Just do a restore through iTunes and you should be ok.

Apple TV 2 to get 6.1 jailbreak.

https://twitter.com/MuscleNerd/statu...62004965584896

Apple TV 3 still left out in the cold.

The $200-300 used Apple TV 2 market will continue to exist.

If the speed doesn't suck more than 6.0, I'll install it on my wife's iPhone 4.

Sweet. iOS 6.1 / ATV software 5.2 finally adds Bluetooth keyboard support.

http://9to5mac.com/2013/01/28/apple-...-in-the-cloud/

So, there's actually a reason to update to 6.1/5.2 on the Apple TV 2, once the jailbreak and updated ATVFlash are available that is.

EDIT:

Even better:

http://www.macrumors.com/2013/01/28/...odel-revealed/

- iTunes in the Cloud: Browse and play your purchased iTunes music directly from iCloud.
- Bluetooth keyboard: Use your Apple Wireless Keyboard to control your Apple TV. See this article for more information.
- AirPlay audio for videos: Send stereo audio from movies, TV shows, and other videos on Apple TV to AirPlay-enabled speakers and devices (including AirPort Express and other Apple TVs).
- Stability and performance: Includes performance and stability improvements with the iTunes Store, AirPlay, Netflix, iTunes Match, and wired Ethernet connections.


I would actually have use for AirPlay audio like this, assuming it works on jailbroken Apple TVs with 3rd party players. But even if just Netflix worked that would be good.

I think there was a problem for the people that wanted to jailbreak and did an OTA to 5.1.1 so they're just being cautions. Don't quote me on that since I had a One X during those times

great, upgraded mine from 6.0.1 to 6.1 last night assuming the battery drain problems were resolved...

NOT, took off charger @ 100% @ 1am and woke up around 7am with my battery sitting @ 83%.

Now I hope iCloud has more then my latest backup from last night so I can restore this POS.

EDIT: I spoke too soon, after a power cycle & a fresh recharge it seems my battery is acting normal again, will know after today.

Haven't seen any change in my 4S since I updated it yesterday evening. I bumped up my wife's iPod Touch 4G to iOS 6.1 also, I'm waiting for her to let me know how it acts.

Updated my iPad (4th Gen) and my wife's mini last night. Super smoooooth upgrade. Both devices are backed up to the cloud and used OTA update.

Nothing really big about this update, but I do like that you can download individual songs from iTunes Match now.

And delete individual files instead of your whole downloaded library.

What were they thinking removing that functionality in the first place!

Save a backup then restore from iTunes and it will be the same thing.

I installed 6.1 on my wife's iPhone 4 yesterday. She is not complaining of any change in performance. In fact, she notices no difference at all.

---

Untethered jailbreak likely coming Sunday, as usual.

I found about zero reasons to go to 6.1 from my kickin-ass & screamin like cheetahs, 5.1 on my iPad2.

Thanks apple, but no thanks.

Ugh, the update failed on iTunes and now my device is stuck in recovery mode. I don't want to recover it because then I lose all my data! Well, I can obviously restore it, but then it takes a billion years copying 55GB of data back to the iPad.

...and yes... I realize you can just update using the device itself. However, after hearing reports of higher battery usage after updating, I wanted to see what results I would get through an iTunes update. I guess I don't care much for the results.

Updated my 4S yesterday using the built in option (I hate iTunes). Took the phone off the charger 12 hours ago, I'm down to 74% with some reading on Flipboard, 2 app updates, a few emails and some FB, all on 3G.

No battery problems here.

Updated my iPad2 yesterday too, used it for ~1 hour in the morning, was down around 7% (to 90%, lost 3% during a bit of evening reading, OS update and the whole night idle). No battery problems either.

So far so good - though I don't really see any changes apart from the double tap player on the lock screen Smooth as silk still

You lost 7% overnight on your iPad? That is a lot! I lose maybe 2-3% overnight when it's sitting idle. Although, my iPad lost a ton of battery power when it sat there on the recovery screen. I think I started the update with it at ~80% battery power, and I had 34% when I checked it this morning.

I'm not 100% sure whether 26% sounds like a lot as I don't know how long you spent, but I'm at 89% after about 7 hours, and I've watched a video, remoted into my desktop, played a game, browsed the web, etc.
