Supposedly it works with 6.0 through 6.1, so I take it you don't have to update to 6.1, but can't vouch for it. I'm on 6.1.

no it's true 6.0.1 is included I just figured why not update to 6.1 that way apps in the way way future if there are any that require 6.1 I can still use them. 6.1 just sounds cleaner than 6.0.1 though doesn't it?

Right now there doesn't seem to be any point in jailbreaking, at least going on what I'm seeing. It is impossible to install anything from Cydia, I presume due to the rush of people trying to get to their accounts/install anything.

Have you had no problems with it? I'm worried cuz I've read about people getting stuck on the apple logo after the new JB but sounds like it occurs more with the phones..

First of all.. woah! I thought this forum disappeared for good ;P

Second... it actually took 10 minutes followed by a reboot for my iPad Mini to be jailbroken successfully, as compared to my iPhone 4S which got through the process like butter.

My iPhone 4 took I think 6 tries before it worked. The failed tries were mostly an error after only a minute or two, but a couple times it seemed to be getting through the jailbreak process, and then reported that it couldn't communicate with "the device". However eventually it worked. Even when it did work it took much longer than 5 minutes. It rebooted many times and kind of in a frightening away, but eventually it booted up successfully. Now, though, when powering up (or after a respring), it reboots and you get the apple logo for short time, but then just a black screen. It stays that way longer than I'd like, but eventually the apple logo comes back and then I get a black screen again for another long period of time, but again eventually it starts up. It's a bit worrisome to be honest, but once up it seems to work fine.

I was finally able to get to my account and then upgrade MyWi (there's a $4.99 fee to upgrade from version 4/5 to 6). And also installed iFile. After installing it did what was allegedly a repspring, but it sure looked too me like a respring followed by a full reboot. iFile, at least, seems to work OK. I haven't tried MyWi 6.0 yet.

EDIT: Never mind. Well, actually what's confusing about iFile is that when I first launch it, the only thing I can see is my Dropbox folder. I have to make a new window and then I can select Local and then I can see all the local files. I'm not sure if that's a bug, or if that's a feature. In any case it is working after I do that.
