    "iOS 6.1 is right around the corner." After that, won't the next update be right around the corner all the time?

    Not exactly. 6.1 is at what, beta 3? 4? Why not wait until they don't have a new beta yet; it will give us the most time to allow everybody to be jailbreakable.

    After iOS 6.1 would probably be iOS 7, so I imagine we could see an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak between the two. iOS 7 doesn't come until next June - September at the earliest, it's still a long time for a jailbreak to be released.

    iOS 7 will likely start betas in June. Even if 6.1 is released in the next month, it would take at least a month to get a jailbreak out, most likely more time. So, why would a jailbreak be released for only a couple months until iOS 7 patches it?

    Hypothetically yes but that's still more time than if it was released now.

    @Joe_Rossignol exactly. Plus I'd like to be jailbroken with the updated lockscreen music controls...

    They're really not all that special, although the volume slider's shine does move with the device, like the Music app's...

    That's great. Still not updating to 6.0.2 though. My wifi is fine.

    I wonder how long he's been sitting on this. If just recently then his logic is fair. If for more than a month then I don't agree.
