iOS6.1 brought shit to the table. I tried a SG Note II the other day,...I got buyers remorse for even getting my Nokia Lumia 920. I never expected that,... The SG Note I didn't make me drool,...the Note II is da SHIT!!!

No, nothing really exciting . It does seem snappier than 5.1.1 though, but that could just be because I did a restore.....

@TDS....jailbreaking does take some getting used to. But once you find what you like, it's hard to go back . That's a good list that you posted....some things I like are Accelerator, NoNewsIsGoodNews (removes NewsStand), and Software Update Killer. Some other tweaks are...Barrel, ColorKeyboard, CyDelete, InfiniFolders, Zeppelin, BytaFont, MxTube, Installous, FiveIconDock, and iCleaner, to name a few ....

There could be a EQ on Cydia...I'm not sure though. @Machiventa, feel free to suggest any apps I may be missing ....

Good luck on your new jailbreak!

Installing tweaks/apps in Cydia can drain a lot of battery life. This is because iOS is doing something that isn't part of iOS, so therefore it drains the battery faster. Once you're finished setting it up everything should be back to normal. If not then you may need to do a restore.

Yeah, I'm giving it a few days to test out. I know running Cydia kills the battery fast. We'll see what happens.

Pretty much finished setting up my jailbreak (been doing it slowly, lol), and Cydia is working fine now. All the bugs seem to be cleared out .

iOS 6.1.2 update is released. Good news is it's still jailbreakable. I may not update yet since it's a rather small update.
