Jailbreakers in the whole world are excited about the release of an untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak.

So, whether you use a newer device such as an iPhone 5 or an iPad 4, or you choose to stick to the classic and you run an older device such as an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4, you will still be able to perform jailbreak iOS 6.1 untethered on it.
