You have serious clout Naps. I see the progress bar is now at 93%.

...and yes, I have Evasi0n screen on one side and the Super Bowl on the other side watching both. LOL

It's official: 12 Noon, EST.

Turns out someone noticed that the progress bar was now moving at a steady rate, and after checking the javascript behind it, cracked the algorithm. planetbeing pretty much verifies it.

(Make sure to view the screenshot of the javascript in the first post. The code is littered with evad3rs references....)
I'll be frank with you. (did I use that term right?)

At this point, the progress bar means nothing. We will see the Jailbreak when we see it. :)

Doesn't seem right to me. The progress bar moved 3% in four hours tonight. We only have 6% to go. So if it follows that patten, it would get to 100% in eight hours. That's 8:00 EST, not 12:00 EST. I think they said was moving steadily and not gaining speed towards the end. Plus, planetbeing didn't actually confirm that, so I wouldn't say it's official. He just said, "I like your solution best."

We'll see. I'm just happy to finally get a jailbreak tomorrow. Any time is fine with me. If I'm at work, I'll jailbreak when I get home. :)

If I am in class, and I check the website and the Jailbreak has been released, I'll run out of the room back to my dorm and immediately Jailbreak my iPhone. (y)

If what Mindi says is correct 12 noon EST then that means that it will be ready for 5pm GMT today. I will be giving Slimming World the flick and rushing straight home from work to Jailbreak my 3gs. I won't jailbreak my iPhone 4.

Is it ok to update ota?
Read somewhere it was not.
Updating in iTunes is recommended if you plan on jailbreaking. Updating OTA increases the chances that something will go wrong during the jailbreaking process, and the SHSHs are different, so you may not be able to downgrade to 6.1 later if you update OTA now.

Will it wipe my music if I do it through iTunes ?


Just hit 99%!

I'm so excited to install Auxo and BiteSMS today!
What is Auxo?

It's up to you. It might jailbreak just fine. You can restore if it doesn't or you can hit the restore button in iTunes right now if you want. It will download the full .ipsw first, which is over 1 GB.
