Update it via iTunes, but make sure you back up first. Then all you have to do is wait until evasi0n releases the new jailbreak.

If you want to backup your Cydia Tweaks etc. you'll need an app like PKGBackup that'll store them on Drop Box or similiar webspaces. Here's a to-do list:

  1. Backup your device using iTunes.
  2. Backup your Cydia tweaks via PKGBackup or a similiar app.
  3. Update your iOS via iTunes using the restore method (suggested). DO NOT update via over-the-air method (updating directly from the device) as this adds an additional encryption to the update package that will most certainly cause the jailbreak to fail.
  4. Save your iOS 6.1 SHSH by using Tiny Umbrella
  5. Apply the jailbreak once it is released.
  6. Enjoy!

@King Bensalem As the "Ask a Question" page says, JailbreakQA has a no piracy rule. We can't help you with cracked apps.
