Hi, Im using an iPhone 4 on 6.0.1. Since evasi0n is coming out I've already downloaded the 6.1 ipsw. Heres the deal. I can restore to 6.1 now because I have internet on my PC. However, on or around the 3rd when, and if, evasi0n comes out. I most likely wont have internet on my PC but will do on my phone. That means I should be able to download evasi0n but I'm not sure if I'd be able to use it.

Also another question. If I clean restore to ios 6.1 today/tomorrow but not jailbreak it through redsn0w will I still have to restore to use evasi0n? Thanks.

you can jailbreak 6.1 with redsn0w, you will have to wait for evasi0n to jailbreak 6.1 untethered. So if you upgrade to 6.1 untethered then there will be no jailbreak available for it until evasi0n. you will need interent access to download evais0n to your pc though.

What Im trying to say is that there is a tethered jailbreak available for the iPhone 4 on 6.1 through redsn0w. Now If I DO use redsn0w to tethered jailbreak it, would I have to RE-RESTORE 6.1 to apply evasi0n?

my bad, I apologize for my confusion, but Redsn0w will jailbreak 6.1 but it IS a tethered jailbreak only! that much is confirmed!

If you did an OTA update [software update], then you should. Things have gone wrong in the past. And yes, you will need access to the interwebs since you need to download the software. Maybe tether your device?
