    I want to jailbreak my phone, when its possible. Right now I'm on 6.0.2, I've been reading that the newest jailbreak tool will work for 6.1 so since 6.1 released yesterday should I upgrade to it?

    The next jailbreak will support 22 devices excluding the AppleTV3 on iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2 and 6.1, so it doesn't really matter which iOS you're on, you'll still be able to jailbreak it.

    Yes, you can safely update to iOS 6.1 and wait for the jailbreak.

    The real importance this time is the APTickets as well as the blobs. Blobs are saved Apple signatures for a specific iOS for a specific device. APTickets are saved Apple signatures for a specific iOS for a specific device for a specific restore. As 4S users have learned from iOS 5, APTickets are extremely important in being able to keep your 4S on iOS 5 for an untethered jailbreak rather than to upgrade to iOS 6 if anything were to go wrong on your device and you're forced to restore.

    So if we are on 5.1.1 still would be smart to just update now?
