So tomorow the jailbreak to 6.1 and iphone 5 will be released. So i have to prepare my phone! I have an iphone 5 with 6.0.2.

So i have to get 6.1 till tomorrow. Should i upgrade to 6.1 using the system properties in the phone? Cause i've read that you should use a program OTA. Where should i update and what is ota?

This is my first time jailbreaking btw...

OTA = over the air.

Dont upgrade OTA. Backup your iphone using itunes and restore&upgrade using itunes. Jailbreak your device. Then use the backup.
