I have already update my iPhone 4S to iOS 6.1 via iTunes~ is it necessary to do a full restore?

Since you updated it with iTunes, it's probably fine. The only information we have from the jailbreakers is this from pimskeks, which seems to say that OTA updates are the thing to avoid and that iTunes methods should be OK: "If you people plan to upgrade to iOS 6.1 please don't do an OTA upgrade. Please make a full restore using iTunes."
