There's a jailbreak app that lets you tether without paying for it, yes. However, some carriers can detect that kind of traffic and have been known to shut down accounts because of it.

I'm confused about the "Librarian of Congress" statement. Is that a typo?

No. The Librarian of Congress has the ability to declare exceptions to certain copyright and DMCA provisions. In this case, this gentleman declared that it was illegal to unlock your phone though you could legally jailbreak it. For reasons best known to him, he determined that jailbreaking a tablet wasn't legal.

It's likely that the Librarian of Congress is delegating these decisions to others. He is 84 and he has been the LOC since 1987. I find it unlikely he understands anything technical. I assume that lobbyists created the guidelines for their own purposes and he just signed off on them.

If you get the latest version of Evasi0n, yes, you can indeed jailbreak 6.1.2. I did so with my iPhone 4(CDMA) earlier.

What happened to all of my existing Apps after I jailbreak? Can i still use the Apple All store? What happens to iCloud sync and backups after jailbreak?
I've avoided jailbreak because in the past I understand there was always a problem in updating to any new iOS, is this the case?

Everything works just as it always did -- you can use your Apple apps and update them via the App Store, iCloud continues to work, and backups work as well.

What you've heard about updating is this: Usually a major iOS update breaks the jailbreak on your device. So, when you update, off goes the jailbreak and your device is back to its original condition. Those people who are concerned about this are those who don't want to lose their jailbreak. What they usually do is not update their version of iOS until a jailbreak that's compatible with it has been issued.

I'm just trying to provide clarity. If you don't have a good reason for jailbreaking, don't.
