How-to jailbreak iOS 6.1 (instructions):
If you happen to be one of those who have been waiting extremely patiently for this jailbreak, then you’ve come to the right place. Follow our extremely simple step by step guide below to jailbreak your iOS device on iOS 6 / 6.1 fully untethered.
NOTE:
a. It is highly recommended to make a complete backup of your device using either iTunes or iCloud before proceeding with the steps below.
b. If you happen to have followed our guide for older A4 based devices for tethered jailbreak iOS 6.1, the good news is that you can easily convert your tethered jailbreak into untethered by installing “evasi0n 6.x Untether” from Cydia.
Step 1: Download Evasi0n jailbreak tool tailored for your OS (Windows / Mac / Linux).
Step 2: Download iOS 6.1, and update your device to it using iTunes. Make sure you restore your device to 6.1 using iTunes, and not OTA, to avoid issues with jailbreak. Even though Evasi0n supports all versions of iOS 6, it is recommended to update to the latest 6.1 version before jailbreak so that you can get all the new features of iOS 6.1, with the added bonus of jailbreak.
Step 3: Make sure you don’t have any passcode set on your device. You can disable Passcode lock from: Settings –> General –> Passcode Lock –> Off
Step 4: Make sure both iTunes and Xcode (if installed) are not running.
Step 5: Start the Evasi0n jailbreak tool on your computer.
Step 6: Connect the relevant iOS device to your PC or Mac via the 30-pin or Lightning cable (depending on the generation of the hardware). Make sure that the connected hardware is recognized by the jailbreak tool.
Step 7: Select the Jailbreak option and relax as the software performs the necessary steps in the background to inject and run through the jailbreaking process.
Step 8: Be patient, do not touch your device or anything on computer during  jailbreaking process.
Step 9: Once done, you will need to unlock your iOS Device, you will then see a “Jailbreak” app on the home screen. Tap on this icon, the screen will go black for a few seconds. After a short while, it will be back on the home screen.
Step 10: Rest of the process is automated, once the Evasi0n software on desktop says “Jailbreak complete!”, after a short while, your device will reboot several times to complete the process. Once this is done, you will have Cydia on the home screen.
