    Default 4S Evasi0n Jailbreak 6.1 OTA

    Hey everyone,

    Has anyone had any experience or heard if anyone that has had problems updating OTA from 6.0.1 to 6.1 and then jailbreaking with Evasi0n.

    I updated over the air to 6.1 and I won't be able to jailbreak my phone for 2 months. Don't ask why? Some peps on this forum know why.

    I updated to 6.1 not knowing that Evasi0n would be compatible with 6.0.1 which was a fresh restore from iTunes.

    Am I just going to be effected if I wanna downgrade in the future or restore, as I may have to settle for that.

    Of course if I can do an iTunes restore while apple is still signing 6.1 then I will. But I may not be able to.

    Odd one I know?

    3cit, Massie, Blink, Lealipoo, everyone?????? I need your help buddies??

    Me ;-)

    Default 4S Evasi0n Jailbreak 6.1 OTA

    I tested it with my spare iPhone 4 going from 6.0.1 (iTunes restore) to 6.1 ota then evasi0n with no issues in the jailbreak process and it is functioning as expected for now.

    the jailbreak will work exceptionally wel no matter how you got to 6.1.
    the only issues is in downgrading, which may never be a possibility anyways!

    Default 4S Evasi0n Jailbreak 6.1 OTA

    Here's my problem; I've downloaded obsidian theme (complete) then it was free and now it's a paid app and it won't let me uninstall it through packages. I think it's causing my phone to crash when performing simple tasks ie trying to open the camera via lockscreen. Any way to uninstall it?

    you can TRY doing a reboot and see what happens. if you have no luck i would start removing jailbroken apps/tweaks one-by-one starting with your most recent and do a reboot after each removal as well

    if no luck after that then you gotta ask yourself "is jailbreaking worth it..? is it REALLY worth it?"

    i mean you jailBROKE your device, something WILL be BROKEN but typically the return is "worth" it. it's a sacrifice - little issues here and there for a different looking phone than the next person. this is also when you need to weigh the pros vs cons and see where that leaves you

    i tend to lean towards the stability of a stock device, you might too
