    The evasi0n jailbreak fully supports iOS 6.1.2. It's your choice whether or not you want to upgrade. You should be aware, however, that the next iOS release, iOS 6.1.3 will not be jailbreakable at the present time. If you do choose to upgrade to iOS 6.1.2, you have to do it before the signing window closes.

    Thanks. I guess did 6.1.2 address anything ? Like battery drain ? Of so was it noticeable difference ? I usually do all updates but wouldn't want to go through it for not really gaining if you know what I mean

    Yes... updating or restoring your iOS always requires Jailbreaking again. If you're planning on updating to iOS 6.1.2... you need to do it now, though. iOS 6.1.3 is just around the corner and could drop any day. iOS 6.1.3 cannot be Jailbroken Untethered or Tethered on the 4S or iP5.

    Your link is an external link and is not trustworthy at that. iOS 6.1.2 is supported if you take 2 seconds to head over to the Evasi0n page and look at the very top where it even says iOS 6.0 - 6.1.2

    evasi0n iOS 6.x Jailbreak - official website of the evad3rs

    I updated to 6.1.2 to see if the battery life was better and I think it's worse
