For those users that are planning to Jailbreak on iOS 6.1.2 then I highly recommend adding this Cydia Source into Cydia after you jailbreak so you don't have to manually input all the Cydia Sources manually. This will automatically add all the best Cydia Sources and give you access to all the best Cydia Tweaks, Themes and Apps for FREE with just a push of a button. Follow the steps below. 1. Open Cydia 2. Tap Sources 3. Tap Edit 4. Tap Add 5. Type this url in the box (cydiasource,n e t) without the spaces and switch coma for a dot in the url. 6. Tap "Add Source" 7. Install the package labelled "All Sources". This will give you all the best Cydia Sources to have access to all the best Tweaks, Apps and Themes for FREE.

Hi and thankyou for the video review! I have version 6.1 (10B143) on my iPhone and when I try to restore to the downloaded firmware (iPhone5,1_6.1.2_10B146_Restore) then it pops up a warning box that says; The iPhone ****** could not be restored becouse of none compatible firmware. Anyone here who can tell me what is the problem? Thanx.

Very easy to do. Less than 5 minutes to do the whole thing. Key is not to restore before jailbreak.
