Probably. In the past updating over-the-air has been a big no-no, particularly because it broke (and later merely interfered with) RedSn0w downgrades from 6.x to 5.x and below. You may have broken your ability to downgrade later (which is probably not such a big deal, really). @Evasi0n haven't said that a jailbreak on an OTA updated 6.x won't work, just that they haven't been able to test it thoroughly. You'll probably be fine, but really, patience is a virtue, as is waiting patiently for definitive and authoritative instructions from the jailbreak teams - avoid doing things that might break future hacks until you're sure that they won't.

youll prob be fine OTA gives you special OTA SHSH blobs. they tell you to update via itunes because they only make sure there programs compatible with all itunes updates, but its more then likely to work with OTA configs
