Hi Guys,

My first quesiton is this. I am on 5.0.1, and I want to upgrade but only to do I go about this.

This leads on to my second question. I want to only upgrade to 6.0 because I have heard nothing but bad things about 6.1, bad wifi, bad battery, bad 3G and much more.

Could anyone advise on these two issues please?

Thanks Drec

Unless you have 6.0 SHSH blobs you cant. I have heard no issues at all and suggest going to 6.1 if you do not require an unlock with ultrasn0w.

It doesnt matter as it doesnt work on 4S so you can update.

What I can tell you is: iOS 6.0 is really bad...much worse than iOS 6.1. I have the same device as what you have had. But there's nothing wrong with Wifi and battery life. If you have SHSH Blobs for iOS 5, you can upgrade to iOS 6.1 without worried anything.

Ok I am resetting to factory at the moment. Its taking a very long time. If I decide to just update straight to 6.1 then it should be just a simple process of upgrading through iTunes correct?

Thanks Drec
