iOS 6.1 was released to the general public very recently and has since been followed, in short succession by 2 updates – 6.1.1 and, today, 6.1.2. These updates were not, as some thought, to patch the exploits used in the untethered jailbreak but to fix a few serious issues that arose – critical connectivity issues on the iPhone 4S and for Microsoft Exchange users and a passcode issue that allowed people to bypass the passcode and gain access to the device, very easily, amongst other smaller issues.
Users are being advised to make the update as quickly as possible, even if you have jailbroken your device – planetbeing has checked out iOS 6.1.2 and confirms it does not affect the evasi0n jailbreak and they have also updated evasi0n to v1.4 to support the new firmware.
There are a couple of ways of updating – OTA (not advisable if you are going to use a jailbreak tool afterwards), a complete restore through iTunes or by downloading the IPSW yourself. The following links will give the correct IPSW file for your device:
