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.

i admire your tenacity

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.

I remember far more issue's with past JB's, this one seems pretty solid..

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.

Sweet baby j man! You gotta tell us the tweaks you tried to throw
On there at the time of freeze!!!

If it was a Siri type (which I know it wasn't, cuz you have a 5) then you deserve a restore? I'm Gonna go start a rant thread on tat right now?

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.
