iOS 6.1 Jailbreak, Sunday Funday

The moment most of us iPhone 5 early adopters have been waiting for, SUNDAY FUNDAY...

I'm absolutely pumped as my stock iPhone 5 simply isn't an iPhone without my favorite tweaks....I have even contemplated reverting back to my 4.....

Nostalgic blog flash back, most of which has nothing to do with the upcoming jailbreak:

This Sunday Funday takes me back to the iOS 4.2.1 GreenPois0n RC 5, read about it HERE and HERE.  The Sunday Funday GreenPois0n release was on Super Bowl XLV Sunday, February 6, 2011.  Here in Wisconsin, it was a HUGE DAY with our beloved Green Bay Packers defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25.  Read about it HERE.  Southeastern WI had also just dug out of Snowpocalypse 2011, having been pounded by a blizzard that dropped 26.25" of snow in a short amount of time, crippling our EMS services and our city.  Click HERE for first hand footage.

What does this have to do with the upcoming jailbreak you ask?


Here's what we know about Sunday Funday.

Apple made the move that the dev crew, @evad3rs, have been waiting for. This morning, Apple released iOS6.1. @evad3rs??? yes, that's the dev team comprised of some of the most famous names in the game, @planetbeing, @pod2g, @MuscleNerd & @pimskeks.

Be ready and follow these steps:

  • Like I ALWAYS SAY, backup, backup and backup.  Send it to the Cloud or connect your device to your PC or Mac and back that mutha up.  Don't forget to transfer purchases as well.
  • If you are already jailbroken, back your tweaks and Jailbreak apps using a backup utility like PKGbackup, available in Cydia.  It doesn't hurt to email yourself a list of tweaks and jailbreak apps as well from the PKGbackup app.  Click here for more on PKGbackup, and don't be a cheapskate, it's worth the money.
  • When ready, update your device to iOS 6.1 by either RESTORING to the new firmware, or through iTunes.  It is not recommended that you update OTA via the Settings app, you will indeed have problems.  I prefer restoring to new firmware.  Those of you that are currently jailbroken may want to wait until the jailbreak is here.  I'm going to update my iPhone 5 ASAP since it's crappy stock anyway.
  • Now hurry up and wait.

Stay tuned by following @evad3rs and their team on Twitter for the latest.....

I'll be back once I take the plunge, until then, that's how @BruceTdoesIT prepares for Sunday Funday.
