The only adverse affect of running it would be that an option may or may not be available for use, that's assuming the app doesn't bar you completely from use such as Sky Go (I believe) and a few banking apps. In the case of Skype, one of the older versions prevented you from purchasing credits directly on your device for the sake of pirates abusing "free in-app purchases". All other functionalities should still be there.

I did my JB on ipad 3, now I still have a mini on 6.1 JB.
If I stay with 6.1 on my mini, will it be a problem later on? Say if cydia tweaks are updated to ios 7, will It tell me that my device is not supported?
If I accidently updated to the wrong ios version, can I delete and reinstall the previous old 6.1 tweak?
Eventually, yes, tweaks will start requiring iOS 7 (or the newest iOS). Developers for Cydia tweaks are no different than those for stock apps - they go where the majority are. And, iOS 7 is here with iOS 8 probably coming this fall. Now, you won't see an immediate loss of iOS 6.x tweaks, and I'm sure they'll still be around. But, eventually, yes, you'll have to upgrade to take full advantage of the tweaks available.

As for your last question, I'm not sure how to go back to an older version of a tweak (once you've updated). I've always upgraded my iOS when I could, so I've never ran into this situation. However, I should imagine that if you run into this situation you can contact the developer and get assistance in getting the older version.

i just had to put my ipad3 from iOS6 into recovery mode by holding the home button while plugging in the USB. Then itunes saw it was in recovery mode and restored the ipad to the newest version. Still need to rejailbreak tho!
