Itunes does not let me update from 5.1 to 6.1. Is there a solution to this or do I have to wait until a JB for 6.13 is released?

iClarified has helped me so much recently with iphones and now my ipad. Just completed this on a iPad 2 wifi on 6.1. Just like the other user Martin said, it took 5 minutes (at most) and restarted 2 times. Its up and running smooth! Happy tweaking!

Not sure if others are running into this problems but various apps are not working with the jailbreak installed. Some are the apple own apps like find iPhone/ipad/friends as well as Yelp and various other apps are just crashing. Maybe as Apple warned the jailbreak will cause programs to crash or not work correctly. As some programs today which check for a jailbreak installed Apple maybe now can tell as well and cause the programs to crash.

Hi, I have just tried Yelp no problems what other apps are you having issues with & I'll try them

I am not sure what is going on with my iPad2 but i got a long list of apps which just hang or just crash when I try to use them. Yelp is one and newsstand, Ibooks, LogMein, 1Password. Find iPhone, Find Friend. my mobile banking app will not allow me to take pictures of checks to make a mobile deposit. All the worked with the 5.1.1 jailbreak and work on 6.1 without the jailbreak. Once it did the enasi0n jailbreak things stopped working.

Worked on IPad 4 ios 6.0.1, when I started it up it told me it could be jailbroken, still had all old apps after jailbreak too, so no need to reinstall. Excellent, btw installous no longer works due to the developers stopping it.
