    I'm jailbroken. Honestly, I don't use any jailbreak feature as much as I thought I would, except perhaps iFile. Backgrounder, barrel, display recorder, Springtomize, activator and sbsettings are all I have installed, and by far I use ifile the most, maybe 3 times a week to back up game saves. I rarely use the rest, though barrel is a really neat tweak. Oh and folder enhancer. Really nice tweak that I love.

    Should I update (and lose my jailbreak)? I would really like to try out Siri (iPad 3), look forward to the Facebook integration and I hear that iOS 6 is more optimized, especially for gaming. Maybe NOVA 3 retina won't stutter as much and the Walking Dead will run smoothly.

    And no I do not pirate apps or games. I have plenty of money of my own to spend on devs and apps that deserve my support and I do.

    Simply because you can link volume buttons to lock and home I would have to say no.

    Exactly, and to be honest maybe just removing barrel will stop Nova 3 and Walking Dead stuttering for you. I'd still stand by updating because I'd say Siri would be actually more useful on an iPad, I wish I could get it on my iPad 2.

    All I'm seeing are downgrades (on 3GS and iPad 2 here) so I'm gonna hold of. Some apps, like iPhoto, already requires iOS 6 tho wich kinda sucks.

    Im also undecided to update or not. Im guessing the ipad2 and 4s should be fine but the one Im unsure about is the ipod 4g, it was much much smoother when it ran on ios 4 so my gut says its bestto not update but a tiny part of my wishes the performance to be better on ios 6.

    Updated on my 4th gen touch. I did run into some issues with the app store and game center didn't want to work at all. I don't know if there was corrupted data for my login, though I got it straightened out once I used the features by signing out through the Settings menu.

    Aside from the above issue, I haven't really seen anything bad with the update. I did find a couple games with a few bugs that weren't there on 5.1.1, but those should be fixed in an update I would hope.

    It should be better on newer devices and I plan on getting at some point.

    The new update for iphoto requires iOS 6. (edit: so now I'm stuck with an update badge, WTF Apple?)


    Anyway, I'll wait until there's an alternative for maps and YouTube from Google (iPad versions). Really don't wanna lose street view and the YouTube app with integrated airplay options etc just to get a clock on my iPad instead..


    Edit: btw, does iOS 6 use up any more space then v5?

    Has anyone been able to get passbook to work? Upon launch it shows all the features it has, with the only interactive element being a link to the App Store, but when I click it I get the "Cannot connect to iTunes Store" error, despite being able to connect to the AppStore normally. Is there something I'm missing?

    I'm using iPod touch 4G 32gig and everything seems fine for me. The few games I've tried still work fine and browsing online and the App Store all works same as ever.
    The new App Store looks like it will take some getting used to. All in all looking good.

    How's the battery compared to iOS 5? Considering updating but honestly as an iTouch 4 owner I don't much see the point...

    I have an iPod touch 4g I'm liking the changes so far, battery life seems the same to me, maybe a little better. I've been on for like an hour and I'd say 1/4 is drained.
