    I backed up via iTunes. Restored iPhone and let phone update. Reloaded backup via iTunes and let phone sync. Re-Jailbroke. Reloaded tweaks.

    If your going to re JB, sure why not. If you want to go stock, I wouldn't.

    What's new in the update? I plan on just keeping mine where it's at unless there is something I missed?

    I've been off #teamjailbreak for a while but back on board with evasi0n... but its been a while since I updated iOS and re-jailbroke and last night I tried to go from jailbroke 6.1 to 6.1.2 restore in iTunes (with the intention of jailbreaking again) and I got an iTunes error code. I'm searching and doing research to figure all this out again but do I need to get into DFU mode and then point the iTunes restore to a downloaded ipsw file? Something like that?

    I always DFU restore before a JB. I backed up my JB'd iPhone 5 and iPad Mini, then DFU restored them both and restored from my backup. Then ran Evasi0n 1.4 on both. No issues. I would try the DFU restore and see if it helps you.

    Default Re: 6.1.2 Jailbreaking Question

    Well I just successfully upgraded from jailbroken 6.1 to 6.1.2 via an iTunes restore and option-click (I'm on a Mac) to point the restore to a downloaded copy of the 6.1.2 ispw file. Worked fine. Now waiting for my backup to load then I will jailbreak again with evasi0n 1.4. Thanks for letting me "think outloud" and maybe this will help somebody in a similar situation...

    I should add that the main reason I wanted to update to 6.1.2 (other than I am a bit neurotic about keeping my software up-to-date) is that I do use an Exchange connection for work and while I'm not sure the Exchange bug was affecting me, I feel better knowing I'm on a version of iOS that supposedly fixed it...

    my theory is to keep updating while you can. Apple will close the vulnerability, that is for certain

    most jailbreakers are fine with staying on the most recent jailbreakable firmware until the end of time if needed

    not me.
