• Planetbeing: iOS 6.1.2 Jailbreakable on iPhone 5 and iPad Mini, Possibly Others

    iOS hacker planetbeing has just announced via Twitter that Tuesday’s release of iOS 6.1.2, which fixes an Exchange calendar bug that quickly drains the iOS device's battery life, is jailbreakable on the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini (Wi-Fi).

    The hacker also says that he is not yet able to test the rest of the iOS devices at this point in time, however since the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini are jailbreakable on iOS 6.1.2, it’s looking good for people with other iOS devices as well.

    With iOS 6.1.2 being jailbreakable, the evasi0n iOS 6 untethered jailbreak tool will likely be updated to support the software update just like it was for iOS 6.1.1 on the iPhone 4S.

    As the hackers release more information, we will continue to keep you updated.

      EDITED: Well I think it may not be PKGBackUp's fault. I think my backup on DropBox may have been corrupted in some way. When I hard restored all prior to using PKGBackup - and I clicked on VIEW RESTORE - even with the only Cydia package being installed - it said only 44 out of 85 needed to be restored. That CAN NOT be right. Many others are saying that PKGBackup worked great for them after the upgrade to 6.1.2. So it much have been something with my DropBox backup. Suffice it to say. I will likely use it again and hope for the best.

      OpenBackUp is great. But that doesn't save 'tweak data' or settings. Where PKGBackUp does. So I'm torn in how to best use the two tools most effectively. I just know I don't want to ever again go through what I did from 10:30pm to 3:30am last night. LOL!!
