Evasi0n is compatible with three main operating systems, Mac OS X (at least 10.5), Windows (at least Windows XP), or Linux (x86 / x86_64). As we stressed before, it's imperative you update your device to the latest iOS 6.1 firmware via iTunes restore, not with OTA (over-the-air). If you did, then you must re-restore your device to iOS 6.1 (iOS 6.1 IPSW links are here). For more information on how to prepare your device for iOS 6 Untethered Jailbreak, read this featured post.
