You will be able to JB on any of the following fimrware versions:
6.0 6.0.1 6.0.2 and 6.1
Best bet would be to restore with itunes to the latest 6.1 firmware and then JB it.

I updated to 6.1 OTA I'm not really concerned. It's more of a precaution to restore than a must.

I can always restore as new if I need to.

Pretty much the only reason is to be able to restore to 6.1 again with shsh blobs if you need to in the future when 6.1 is not signed any more.

But if you are jail broken and you need to restore, you can't, if 6.1 isn't being signed anymore. You need to have restored with iTunes and not OTA, but if you're not going to jailbreak your phone then it doesn't matter. Update away.
