[Guide] How to jailbreak iPhone 5 and others on iOS 6.1 using Evasi0n

Before we begin, I would like to mention that this is the untethered jailbreak we have all been waiting for. Unlike the tethered jailbreak which requires you to plug your device to your computer each time you reboot. The Evasi0n jailbreak supports all 20+ variants of iOS devices including the new Apple iPhone 5 running  or iOS 6.1. Unfortunately the Apple TV 3 isn't supported by this method.
