Jailbreakers Not to Update to iOS 6 Otherwise……? BigBoss Warns
Apple iPhone 5 is out now with a new iOS 6 firmware. But it should be noted that, at present, the jailbreak community only has a tethered jailbreak for iOS 6 through Redsn0w jailbreak tool by iPhone Dev Team. Today, the BigBoss of the Cydia Repository strictly warned jailbreakers not to update to iOS 6 from iOS 5 otherwise they would loss many handy applications those are now running smoothly on iOS 5.
“iOS 6 is a total dud. I think it’s by far the worst major upgrade Apple has ever provided. It’s more like a 5.1.2 than a 6.0,” said BigBoss.
He notes the major differences moving to iOS6 from iOS 5:
1) Removes youtube
2) Removes google maps.
3) Adds apple maps. No street view, no transit directions. Remember, google has been doing maps a long time. No way apple is doing it as well in a few months.
4) Adds what? Facebook integration, ViP mail, do not disturb? iOS 5 users, you can get “do not disturb” functionality with “ringerx vip” in cydia.
This is definitely not worth an upgrade. And if you are jailbroken on iOS5 definitely do not upgrade to this. You will lose your jailbreak and that’s definitely not worth it for this.
We think an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 is in the way and it will soon hit the surface within 4-6 weeks.Apple, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Jailbreak
