    3636Which means making sure you won't get force-fed an unwanted OTA update is *very* important. Switch to airplane mode ASAP, and create a *folder* named [b]update.bin.tmp.partial[/b] at the top level of the visible USB storage.
    3737[COLOR="Red"][b]WARNING:[/b][/COLOR] FW >= 5.12.x is potentially much more aggressive, and we currently don't have a sure-proof way of preventing OTA updates on those newer FW versions (short of sticking to Airplane mode).
     38[COLOR="Red"][b]WARNING:[/b][/COLOR] FW >= 5.12.2 is definitely much more aggressive, and it will *probably* destroy your JailBreak. Having an up-to-date (>= 1.16.N) bridge *before* the update *might* help, or not. TL;DR: Stay away from >= 5.12.x.

    122 If you do decide to go with a more current FW version, *avoid* anything >= 5.12.x, as early reports seem to indicate that it's become even more aggressive, preventing you both from blocking OTA updates, and potentially from being able to install the hotfix if you're ever in a bind...

    124125As mentioned earlier, of FW update will basically throw you back to the post-hotfix step: you'll basically have to reinstall anything that came bundled in a .bin, except for the hotfix/bridge itself.
