So you don’t have to worry anymore which firmware are you running on your iDevice, i just recommend that you update it to iOS 6.1 and use the magic of Evasion jailbreak tool.
As mentioned before, Evasion tool supports all +20 variants of iOS devices including the newly released iPhone 5 running on iOS 6 through iOS 6.1. However i should mention that Evasion untethered jailbreak does not support Apple TV.
Requirements for the jailbreak procedure:

Evasion Jailbreak iOS 6.1 / 6 Untethered step-by-step instructions:
Note: I strongly recommend that you make a complete backup of your iDevice using either iCloud or iTunes before proceeding with the instructions below. If you already have a tethered jailbreak on your A4-based iDevice you should know that you can easily flip it to the untethered jailbreak mode by installing “evasion 6.x untether” from Cydia.
Step 1: Download Evasion Jailbreak tool for your operating system (Windows / Mac / Linux).
Step 2: Turn Off your Passcode lock if you have any from: Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock -> Off.
Step 3: Both iTunes and Xcode (if installed) must be closed.
Step 4: Run Evasion jailbreak tool app on your computer.
Step 5: Connect your iDevice to your computer via the USB cable and make sure that your iDevice is recognized by the Evasion jailbreak tool.
Step 6: Click the Jailbreak option and now just wait while Evasion tool does all the necessary steps to inject and run through the jailbreak process like preparing jailbreak data, injecting jailbreak data, rebooting the iDevice, uploading Cydia and uploading the Cydia packages list. This may take a few minutes so please do not touch anything.
Step 7: After the process is complete unlock your iDevice and you should see a “Jailbreak” app icon on your home-screen.
Step 8: Tap the “Jailbreak” icon, now the screen should go black for a few seconds and will be back on the home-screen after a short while. In the meantime you should see more messages like injecting jailbreak messages and Root Filesystem successfully remounted on the Evasion jailbreak tool.
Step 9: The rest of the evasion untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1 / 6 process is automated. Please be patient as your iDevice might restart several times. In this part of the jailbreak process you should see more messages like Setting up Cydia, Clearing SpringBoard Cache, Rebooting, Patching kernel, Cleaning up and finally Done.
Step 10: Now you should be taken to your Lock screen, which means that the jailbreak process is now complete and the Cydia icon should be on your home-screen. Take notice that on your first load of Cydia it might take a minute or two. You will be taken back to your Lock screen for one final time, unlock again, open Cydia and choose your user type.
