The long-awaited untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.x is finally here

Although the jailbreak was initially expected to arrive yesterday, the hacker group known as evad3rs finally released their long-awaited jailbreak for iOS 6.x today. The group wanted to wait until iOS 6.1 was pushed out the door to prevent Apple from deploying quick fix to squash the exploits needed to fuel the jailbreak.
 
As with previous jailbreaks, evasi0n allows users to install unauthorized apps onto iPads, iPhones, and iPod touch devices. In this jailbreak, the list of supported devices is quite extensive:
 
iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5
iPad 2/3/4
iPad mini
iPod touch (fourth and fifth generations)
 
The jailbreak software can be downloaded now (Windows, Mac, Linux), and the install process takes no more than a few clicks and few minutes to finish. The evasi0n jailbreak works on iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, and 6.1.

But as a reminder, please backup your device before proceeding with the jailbreak and realize that Cydia will be slammed with people trying to access the servers for the first 24 hours (or longer).

Jailbroken iPhone is the best of both worlds. Utility that jailbreaking gives you as well as better hardware, more polished OS, and better apps.

As you said its also easier than rooting.

Phone OS and hardware are merely preference at this point. They all do the main things and are robust enough for most applications.

Now, a world that lets me pick my hardware and install the OS of my choosing would be a good one. It's a world where carrier lock-in is gone and they are just another Internet pipe.
