Evasi0n jailbreak is the latest iphone 5 jailbreak that is tested and released by famous jailbreakers with a new team name called evad3rs. The evasi0n iphone 5 jailbreak is compatible with all other devices as well and even we are hoping that it will also be equally applicable to jailbreak iOS 6.1.2 which hopefully will be released shortly.
Apparently there are no issues with the evasi0n iPhone 5 jailbreak, initially there were issues with weather app and boot screen freezing but that were rectified in evasi0n 1.3 release. All you need to make sure is that you take backup of your device and if you are willing to upgrade to latest version i.e. 6.1.1 or 6.1.2 you should not do it through OTA option (on the air) instead download separate ipsw file for your device and upgrade using iTunes (on iTunes when you click update or restore button also press Shift/Option button and it will ask to select ipsw firmware file).
