    Pod2g has stated it already before that he's had an untethered jb ready but was waiting for Apple to drop 6.1. Only a matter of time now. A few more weeks maybe sooner.

    If I understood the article, the jailbreak should work with both 6.0.x and 6.1. That's news to me. I was under the impression it would only work on 6.1.

    They are saying the JB exploit is still present in the public 6.1 version. So you are safe to upgrade. Don't do it via OTA. Use a computer.

    Looks like SuperBowl Sunday will be the release day of the JB.

    Yes. Apparently this is where the vulnerabilities are working for the devs.

    Not sure exactly.

    "@pimskeks If you people plan to upgrade to iOS 6.1 please don't do an OTA upgrade. Please make a full restore using iTunes."

    Ive started to download 6.1 OTA, Ive stopped at install now, can I still update through iTunes? I have never synced to iTunes with this device. Will I still be able to JB?

    Not sure, but I'd assume you could just download the 6.1 ipsw and do a restore in iTunes?

    So even if we are not jailbroken ( mine is an iPhone 5) we still have to update through iTunes?

    DOH! Out of nowhere the update showed up, and since I have wifi at work, updating I went.

    AND THEN I SEE THE WARNING NOT TO UPDATE OTA! So the question is, for me, how does one download just the 6.1 ipsw and do a full restore if one has already updated their 4S (in my case) to 6.1? I know it is via iTunes, and that there has to be a tutorial here somewhere, but a little direction would very much be appreciated.

    no worries dude, you can still jailbreak, just maybe not downgrade...

    you can always restore as new to make sure you have the complete 6.1 firmware saved

    Yep. But as stated above it's probably not a big deal, it's just one of those things where you're better safe than sorry.

    The whole reasoning behind doing it through iTunes is that if you want to ever downgrade or re-restore you need the correct ramdisk, ap tickets and shsh blobs, which are NOT correct if you do OTA or update through iTunes. The dev team recommends a full backup-restore to get the correct items and then save them. It will not affect the jailbreak, but possibly other tools in the future.

    As a complete noob at jailbreaking, can I just clarify something please?

    If I follow you correctly, do you mean

    1) Connect to itunes via cable
    2) Back up phone
    3) Restore the phone using that just saved backup
    4) Now have the correct blobs etc in case you need to downgrade/get rid of the JB
    5) Now you can update to 6.1 via iTunes

    You almost got it!

    1. Connect iPhone to iTunes via cable.
    2. Do a backup.
    3. Open this site and download the iOS 6.1 firmware for your device.
    4. In iTunes hold the Shift/Option key on your keyboard and hit Restore.
    5. Navigate to the 6.1 firmware you downloaded in step 3.
    6. When the restore is complete you'll be on 6.1. Now restore from the backup you made in step 2 to restore your apps and data.
