iOS6, been there, now back to 5.1.1

As soon as iOS6GM leaked, I used it on my faithful 3GS, jailbroke it, with Cydia and a bunch of tweaks (there's plenty of them that work, to my surprise, but not all).
But, sorry to say, there's nothing on iOS6 worth losing the untethered jailbreak.
Fuck this, I'm back on iOS 5.1.1, untethered jailbreak again. Then, I'll wait for an untethered jailbreak, whenever that might be. Seriously, so far there was nothing on iOS6 satifying me more than what I had on 5.1.1, plus, I could safely use a ton of Cydia stuff to customize it to my liking. Maybe iPhone 4 users have more stuff available with iOS6 than 3GS, I don't really know, however, for me it's only 5.1.1 for now.

Cheers

i agree... iOS6 is nothing... I keep saying this but they should have just called it 5.1.2....
I will be staying on my 5.1.1 as well happily jailbroken.
until of course 6 is jailbroken as well

but nonetheless a useless update


I know you want to ...

It makes the iPod Touch 4G way slower, just like the iPhone 3G with iOS 4

im waiting on ios 6 to get release for one thing. i will update to it just to see if mms works. i have a iphone 4 on at&t nertwork, on ios 6 beta 3, 4 and the gold master fw mms work did not work with out jailbreaking and using tetherme to edit the apn. i tried 3 different at&t sim cards and mms still did not work. i tried everyting from ibackupbot to tethered jailbreak just to edit the apn. unsuccessful.

while i was on it, i like the facebook and twitter integration, the phone dail pad, the music app layout. and having facebook and twitter on notification center. theres not a big difference on ios 6 than it is on ios 5. you can get all those things already plus more and have a untethered jailbreak on ios 5.

i think ppl will update because of the word NEW firmware. but keep in mind, new isnt alway better...

Theres an apple lover in my class, he got iOS6 on his iphone 4 or 4s, and he loves it to death, it couldnt be any better.

He does not jailbreak, as its "stealing" from Devs. (Guys a seriously mis informed apple crack pot)

Personally, i have had warnings from left and right not to go iOS6, and the only reason i could even consider it doing it, is 3d maps, but hell, The Apple maps are worthless next to google maps, so why update to crap down your phone?
I pitty the fool, that DONT use iTools

Iphone 4 16gb @ iOS 6.1 Untethered
Iphone 3Gs 16gb @ iOS 6.1 Unthered
Ipod Touch 2g 8gb @ iOS 4.2.1 Untethered

CLICK TO DOWNLOAD --> iTools, does everything iTunes wont let you and much more

No i dont make money from this, i just REALLY hate iTunes

There's no 3d maps on iPhone 4 ios 6 either. The tweak I found only crashed my phone. But it worked good on beta 3

there's a repo, i forgot (but found it by searching for "Activator iOS 6")

that enabled 3D maps on my iPod touch 4, which works well when it does work, which is almost never.


Graphically, iOS 6 feels more mature (it lost the glossy look, it looks like that UI Revamped theme) but there's just not much new. (Passbook apps don't exist so far, I thought it would be like taking a picture of the card or something...)

Eh, it's OK, not great though.
No longer with iOS, but still around.

All you guys that are still on 3G(S), you should be upgrading your phones instead of iOS.

What did you expect, iOS6 wasn't designed with your hardware in mind.

True, but with the 3Gs you have the option to downgrade so they are just trying it out to see if there are any improvements. For me there are no improvements and you are running with less memory as opposed to firmware 5.1.1.
