You can try Sn0wbreeze and make a custom fw, but people say the latest version is buggy

I would suggest you just wait for a Sn0wbreeze update, because with such a bug, the fix should be out soon. Then put your iPhone into PWNed DFU and restore in iTunes. Don't use TU! shsh for 6.1 are coming nicely from Apple servers.

i just did this try it: 1)restore with redsnow/extras/even more/restore with ios 6.1 and this will preserve your baseband now the bad thing of doing this is that it will get stuck on itunes logo and you WONT be able to get out of this with redsnow/extras/recovery fix, trust me i tried and tried and it wont cuz it needs to be deactivated so do this 2) use redsnow/extras/select ipsw and trick redsnow using ios 6.0 go back and select jailbreak it would do his thing but when it gives you the options deselect cydia and just hit "deactivate" it will go throught the jailbreak process when its finish it will boot up normally. 3) put an authorized sim so u can go to home screen 4) use evasi0n to do the untheter, now evasi0n will let you know that your phone has been jailbroken already but dont worry cuz you didnt select cydia with redsnow, so follow evasi0n instruction 5) and buala fully jailbroken iphone now go to cydia install ultrasnow 1.2.8
