So once again Apple has updated world’s most popular mobile firmware and made it to version 6.0.1 equipping some bugs fixed and performance enhancements. In this page, you’ll find all available leaked direct download links to iOS 6.0.1 .ipsw file for all supported iDevices including iPhone 5 and the brand new iPad 4. Having .ipsw file stored locally will come in handy during jailbreaking or restoring. Anyway, you’ll find the whole direct hot links after the jump but we’ll discuss few things about iOS 6.0.1 first.
The 6.0.1 update appears to address several prominent bugs, including an apparent resolution to the iPhone-specific “No Service” after signal loss and regain problem that impacts a fairly large number of users who are in areas with spotty cellular reception. As it turned out, the latest 4-inch iPhone shipped with bugs that prevent users from updating their device over the air (OTA) found in Settings >> General >> Software Update. The iOS 6.0.1 comes to fix that issue as well.
iOS 6.0.1 Changelog (highlighted):
- Fixes iPhone 5 OTA Update bug
- Fixes a bug affecting Exchange meetings
- Fixes an issue that could cause camera flash to not go off
- Consolidated the Use Cellular Data switch for iTunes Match
- Fixes a bug where horizontal lines may be displayed across the keyboard
- Improves reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5G when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi
- Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances
- Fixes a Passcode Lock bug which sometimes allowed access to Passbook pass details from lock screen
But however, one notable thing that is missing is the lack of improvements regarding the iOS 6 Maps, which garnered quite a lot of criticisms from all parts of the world. That’s so unfortunate
According to this tweet:
If you’re waiting for an (untethered) JB, don’t update to iOS 6.0.1, yet.

As of this point, nothing is certain yet. iOS 6.0.1 might have brought some patches that eliminates the exploit which will be used for an untethered jailbreak in the future. Again nothing is confirmed yet aside from the fact that the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak is being actively worked on. If you are a longtime jailbreak user, it should be a rule of thumb to hold off on upgrading to the latest available firmware update. This is for the fact that almost always, the update will surely patch the exploit that makes the jailbreak work. As a safety precaution, it is also recommended that you save your SHSH blobs using Redsn0w which by the way also works on the iPhone 5. This way, you can choose to downgrade to iOS 6.0.
Save your 6.0 blobs with redsn0w’s SHSH->New button (connect device 1st).Also I recommend staying at 6.0 *if* that’s where you are now
