How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi, i have a iphone 4S running ios 6.0.1. I've read somewhere that its highly recomended to upgrade to the latest firmware ( ios 6.1 ) before jailbreaking with the comming jailbreak Evasi0n. Why is it recomended? I also wonder if its 100% sure that the jailbreak will work for ios 6.1 as well. I would get really pissed if i upgraded to 6.1 and it only works for 6.0 and 6.0.1 because iTunes will not let us downgrade firmware anymore.. Thank you

This will work for 6.1. It is recommended because you can have bug fixes and new features which 6.1 has and still jailbreak. Proof of it will work is "An iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 6.0 through 6.1 (you may check in Settings / General / About => Version)" which is on
