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.

Do I upgrade to 6.1 if I am looking to jailbreak?

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.

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."

I?ve started to download 6.1 OTA, I?ve 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?

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.

!!!!! Noooooooo I've already started the OTA update! I hope I can still get the JB. ��

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

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.
