I want to upgrade it to 6.1, but I really don't know how. Your best bet is to use i Tunes to update it: (WARNING: this will factory reset your phone. jailbreak needs a tool called p0sixspwn to be untethered - be sure not to forget that!You will need to ensure all your data is appropriately backed up - you'll also have to re-jailbreak afterwards.) Put the phone in recovery mode and plug it into the computer. It will tell you it has detected an i Phone in recovery mode and give you the option to update and restore it. (It will download about 700 MB of data and then factory reset the phone.) Boot your phone up and it will be running i OS 6.1.6! (I won't go into detail here, but there is plenty of info online about this extremely simple step.) Enjoy!This update was released to fix a SMS vulnerability that Charlie Miller and Collin Mulliner discovered in i Phone OS 3.0.
