Last week, iH8sn0w had released a new version of p0sixspwn, which makes it a lot easier to perform an untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.6. Prior to that, users had to use Redsn0w to perform a tethered jailbreak, and then install the p0sixspwn package to convert the tethered jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak.
