How To Jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 Untethered With Evasi0n 1.4

Apple released iOS 6.1.2 last week to fix some lingering issues experienced by iPhone 4S and to a lesser degree other iPhone users.
Although battery drain issue due to excessive Microsoft exchange communication between the Microsoft server and iDevice was fixed, passcode issue is still there.
Consequently, this new update release is just for bug fixes and doesn't really bring any new features to the device.
This means that if you don't have battery drain problem and don't care about the Microsoft exchange stuff or don't use it, then you may not go through the hassle of updating.
However, if you want to update to iOS 6.1.2 and jailbreak untethered, below is a step by step process which is an excerpt of the more detailed process here.

Step 1
Download iOS 6.1.2 using iTunes or at www.idownload.com/iphone-downloads/ if you intend to preserve baseband.
To preserve baseband for Gevey unlock, follow this tutorial.

Step 2
Update your device to iOS 6.1.2 with iTunes. If you downloaded outside iTunes, just hold down the Shift key on the keyboard then press Restore, select the IPSW you downloaded. Press OK and let the update take effect

Step 3
Once your device is updated, launch Evasi0n 1.4. Wait for it to detect your device.

Step 4
Click jailbreak and then let evasi0n do its thing. Your device will reboot & a new icon (Evasi0n icon) will show up on your screen.

Step 5
Click on the icon and Evasi0n will complete its process. Once done, your device will be jailbroken untethered on iOS 6.1.2

This tutorial applies to all devices except those that can't run iOS 6.x and Apple TV 3 that doesn't have a jailbreak for now.
