    Apple are no longer signing for 6.1.2, you will have to stick with 6.1.3 and wait for a jailbreak that potentially may never come

    While it is true that Apple is no longer signing 6.1.2 since the OP has an iPhone 4 they can still jailbreak on 6.1.3. It will be a tethered jailbreak though.

    Hope you are not as disappointed as I was when I jailbroke my iPhone 4, it was too slow and sluggish for me. I suppose it all depends on whether you value speed or personalisation.

    A jailbreak itself will not slow down your phone. Some tweaks will. As long as you're careful with what you install you should not notice any sluggishness or lag. I'm jailbroken and I don't.

    Okay, I read that it wasn't till the iPhones got dual core processors that the lag stopped showing.
