You have to upgrade to official 6.1, and then jailbreak with evasi0n. Before that you need to sync and backup your iphone with iTunes, so all your apps and music will not lose.

Apple apps you can transfer purchases in iTunes, music you can use iTools to save in your computer. Cydia apps/tweaks you can use pkgbackup (cydia app) but its asking for trouble since some tweaks are not yet iOS6 compatible and may bootloop on pkgbackup restore. Best to just save list of cydia tweaks using appinfo and install them manually.
