Simply stated (very simply) the difference between the two forms is your location at time of processing. Also, the I-601 waives more grounds if inadmissibility. I -601A is only for unlawful presence. Which ever one you need, I can't answer because need more information. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
The big difference between the two is that the I-601A Waiver the Applicant can remain in the U.S., while the case is pending and upon an approval, will be required to depart the U.S. to attend his interview at the consulate. Please note, that this waiver is very limiting and only pardon's unlawful presence. Should USCIS find another factor of inadmissibility (multiple entries, criminal record), they may have reason to believe to deny the waiver. With regards to I-601, the Applicant will have to remain outside the U.S., while the case is pending. Regardless of filing an I-601 or I-601A, the processing times vary between 90 to 180 days or longer (note, that each case is different and processing times may vary).
Regardless of the waiver, you should contact a competent immigration attorney to review the specifics of the matter. Unfortunately, a lot of I-601A waiver cases are being filed by notaries, who are just taking advantage of poor innocent people. Don't become a victim, contact an immigration attorney today.
