You can still JB with an over the air update more then likely the OTA blobs are cached and the Kernel reconfiguration is expected in the exploit.. There just not testing the OTA blob range so there's like a 0.05 chance it won't work..... Then never said it won't work it would just double there testing.... There already late

It's still good to recommend to people to restore instead of updating via OTA, and to explain how to do it for people who ask about it. It helps you now (to get a better-tested jailbreak) and in the future if SHSH blobs become useful on these devices. :)

In any case, planetbeing said "We will not be able to test the OTA upgrade path very well", not that it wouldn't be tested at all.
