Since the dev team said on Twitter 6.1 is safe, I updated my iphone 5 OTA from 6.0.2 to 6.1. Later they said you should do a full restore via iTunes instead of OTA. Too late of course.. Is it any use to try to restore back to 6.0.2 (still signed?) and do a 6.1 restore later on? Or won't it matter for the shsh blobs?

Do I have to do that now or can I just wait until the jailbreak arrives? Can't go back anyways, Apple already stopped signing the older FW's.
