Hacker planetbeing corfirmed, that untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak will be relaeased quite soon.

This step-by-step tutorial will guide you through the process of full restore, that is highly recommended for iOS 6.1 jailbreak. You can use this tutorial for any iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
Important: do not update to iOS 6.1 if you need carrier unlock.
Make a folder called "Firmware". Download iOS 6.1 for your Apple device: here.
We have downloaded iOS 6.1 for our iPhone 4:
MuscleNerd, a popular hacker and member of the evad3rs, has revealed that the upcoming iOS 6.1 jailbreak will support all 22 device variations and likely the atv2.
@MuscleNerd is every other device supported?
@unicornhacker yes, every other 6.1 device variation will be supported. All TWENTY-TWO of them (omg!). Plus atv2 if it's out in time.
Unfortunately, with the exploit that's being used, the Apple TV 3 will not be supported.
@MuscleNerd @evad3rs_jb So those of us with atv3 still have to wait for a bootrom
@arovik not necessarily. Although atv3 uses far fewer services that can be tampered with, it's not isolated. But it can't use this next JB
The Apple TV 2 will be included in the upcoming jailbreak, according to MuscleNerd of the Evad3rs Dev-Team.
Awesome...as @EvilPenguin_ pointed out, we're seeing the final ATV2 6.1 today too. So ATV2 will be covered by the JB (not ATV3 tho).
Unfortunately, as mentioned earlier the Apple TV 3G will not be supported by this jailbreak.
Pimskeks of the Evad3rs Dev-Team reveals that those looking to apply the new iOS 6.1 jailbreak should update to the firmware using iTunes.
If you people plan to upgrade to iOS 6.1 please don't do an OTA upgrade. Please make a full restore using iTunes.
Planetbeing has confirmed that their untethered jailbreak works with new iOS 6.1 final firmware released by Apple today.
iOS 6.1 appears to be vulnerable to the exploits we are planning on using.
Pod2g confirmed that the Evad3rs Dev-Team is ready with a jailbreak for iOS 6.1 and credits Planetbeing and Pimskeks for the accomplishment in an interview with iDigitalTimes.
"For your information and this is important to me that everybody knows about it also, this jailbreak will be @planetbeing and @pimskeks. I arrived at the end, gave ideas that pushed them to their maximum, I kinda unblocked the situation, but it would certainly have happened without me helping."
Another progress on the public jailbreak is reported by hacker planetbeing recently. Planetbeing has given us hope that a public jailbreak is near with his latest tweet.
Tons of progress the last few days. I think the future is looking bright for jailbreaking.
