How to fix some mysterious problems.

The day ios 6.1 came out I updated through WiFi not knowing that Evasi0n did not support that. It had something to do with it being slightly different. Although, it doesn't say anything about that on Evasi0n's website under requirements. Please help! I want to jailbreak my device this Super Bowl Sunday!!!

Yes, you can. It is recommended to use iTunes rather than OTA, just to keep the slim possibility of future downgrades open. You can still restore via iTunes even though you've already updated OTA, and that's what I would do if I were you. In either case, you will be able to jailbreak when evasi0n is released (Sunday is not a guarantee, it's an estimate).

Nowhere has it said it won't support OTA. it's just an iTunes upgrade/restore is best.

Restoring in iTunes gives you the possibility (not guarantee) of a downgrade or 6.1 re-restore.
