    What I like to know is if it’s worth it to upgrade from 5.1.1 to 6.1 because right now redsn0w let you restore from 5.1.1 back to 5.1.1 and if I upgrade and Apple will come out with 6.1.1 to block jailbreaking then there will be no restore and many hacks still don’t work so well or at all on ios 6 so for the iPhone 5 sure I would but for my iPad 3 and iPhone 4S I don’t know, what so special about iOS 6 ???
