Jailbreakers should avoid upgrading your iOS device to iOS 6.1.2, until the evad3rs dev team confirm it is safe to do so. Jailbreakers should also take a backup of the SHSB blobs for iOS 6.1 or iOS 6.1.1 using TinyUmbrella before Apple stops signing iOS 6.1 and iOS 6.1.1 firmware file, if you haven’t jailbroken your iOS device with evasi0n yet.
You can also download iOS 6.1.2 using the direct download links available in our iOS download pages:
- iPod touch
iOS developer and hacker, Neal has just tweeted that Apple has stopped signing iOS 6.1.1 and iOS 6.1.
MuscleNerd and planetbeing have just tweeted that they’re testing whether iOS 6.1.2 fixes the evasi0n jailbreak:

Only iPad2,6 and iPod4,1 are left now.
