    Default Should I update my iPhone 5 to iOS 6.0.1?

    I tried to save my SHSH but it is too late... Should I update if I ever want a chance of jailbreaking?

    I wouldn't jailbreak an iPhone cause it will void your iPhone.

    You mean it voids the warranty?? not really, you can always restore the phone as new after jailbraking, some people even got their jailbroken iphones swapped for hardware issues..

    I wouldn't jailbreak until 6.1 is released and make sure it's stable, that's pretty much a few months from now

    6.1 is out for developers only, it could take a month or two before it's released for everybody, after that it depends on how long the dev team takes to release a jailbreak for 6.1, could be weeks or months later.

    Default Re: Should I update my iPhone 5 to iOS 6.0.1?

    Here's what I'm doing:

    Staying put on iOS 6 until Apple releases iOS 6.1 officially. At that point there will be a small window (7-10 days max) where you'll be able to either stay on iOS 6, or update to 6.0.1 and 6.1. At that point we need to find out which one of those three firmwares is the most jailbreak-friendly.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).

    Don't be so sure about that windowApple stopped signing 6.0 in record time when 6.0.1 came out.
