The latest iOS versions are always better, as they include improvements over previous versions. Secondly, if you intend to stay Jailbroken, then now is a good time to upgrade & jailbreak, 'coz if Apple patches the JB then you'll have to wait it out.

I would certainly upgrade to 6.1.2. The iPhone 4s gets all the features the iPhone 5 has (Panoramic photos, facebook integration, turn by turn navigation and 3D maps, passbook, etc) and if you jailbreak it you can still install tweaks like browser changer to make google maps the default if you don't like Apple Maps. All in all, I think iOS 6 is a great upgrade to 5. If you wait, Apple will release 6.1.3 and then your migration path to iOS 6 jailbroken will be CLOSED until a new jailbreak is available, which I doubt would be any time soon....

We don't actually know that 6.1.3 will neuter evasi0n, but it's still good advice. Personally I take the FB integration as a minus, though. xD

You don't need to use the FB integration if you don't like it, and since 6.1.3 is confirmed to have already broken one vector of the jailbreak, it is certain that evasi0n, as it stands, will no longer work with it, no?

Thanks for the inputs. I will upgrade. I just wanted to know what jailbreak community thinks about this IOS version. So it is stable and worth to upgrade. Thanks
