I have an iphone 4, currently jailbroken on ios 5.0.1. After backup, should I update to ios 6.1 on my phone or through itunes? What is the best option to update before new jailbreak?

Yes, it is better to update before a jailbreak. Since your Phone is already jailbroken you won't be able to update via OTA so iTunes is your only option.

Yours is the only answer so that wouldn't benefit anyone but you.

About the question: when you already have a jailbreak on your device, you should click Restore iPhone in iTunes (not Restore Backup) instead of Update. This will take longer as it's formatting the disk and then restoring the latest iOS and your data, but this ensures that no old jailbreak data is left behind.
