Planetbeing has confirmed on Twitter that their untethered jailbreak works with the new iOS 6.1 firmware released by Apple today.

the tweet is somewhat of a hint that the team might release the jailbreak on Superbowl Sunday. Following the tweet he replied to a user saying that the jailbreak will support all twenty-two device variations.
@unicornhacker yes, every other 6.1 device variation will be supported. All TWENTY-TWO of them (omg!). Plus atv2 if it’s out in time.
If you are planning on Jailbreaking your device then it is recommended that you don’t do an OTA upgrade and instead make a full restore using iTunes because, as MuscleNerd tweeted, , “OTA is more time consuming for us to test, and it gives you different SHSH blobs than normal restore.” Stay tuned for a tutorial on how to Jailbreak your device later this week.
