    Just a word of warning...I was in the middle of installing some theme folders tonight when my iPhone 5 went dark and tried to reboot before getting stuck on the boot logo. Tried all the usual things but couldn't get any of it to work--I'm currently restoring.

    Thought I'd mention it since we all know that Apple is going to close the window on 6.1 pretty quickly...I guess I'll just be a little more careful about what I install going forward.

    Frankly, I'm embarrassed that I couldn't get it to boot. After all the jailbreaking I've been through I figured I could do it no matter what, but it just sat there while the fear crept in--"what if Apple is closing the 6.1 signing window RIGHT NOW???"--and that's when I decided to restore. Figured it would be better long-term anyway.

    So does this mean you're still not jailbroken? If so you've lasted much longer than I'd have guessed!

    What theme folders were they so we can all avoid them?

    This is why I'm staying away from themes unless they are updated for iOS 6 and the iPhone 5.

    Well, I'm not saying it was something in the theme itself (just to be clear) but I had a bunch going in at once: LS Nimbus, LS iDust, an old Typophone (not the one in Cydia). Other recent installs included WallpaperJPEGifier and rpetrich's RespringCacheFixer. Might be some others that I don't recall right now.

    Nope! I was really relying on that one to work, too.

    Here's the rundown of what I can recall being on there, but I'm fairly sure that if I stuck it out I could have eventually got it to boot...I think I just tossed too much in at once via iExplorer and it screwed up the reboot. I figured a quick restore would be just as easy. Anyway, here's the list:

    Activator
    Barrel
    Bitesms
    Cascade
    Color Keyboard
    iFile
    Infinidock
    ISX
    LS Clock Hide
    NCSettings
    Pandora Downloader
    Springtomize 2
    Wallpaper JPEGifier
    Winterboard

    themes:
    biteLiquid for Bitesms
    Blink lockscreen

    that's it!
    Back to normal now and will be a bit more cautious about how and what I load.
