If the only purpose of your jailbreak is so you can pirate, then please do not jailbreak, piracy (theft) is not condoned.

I was having the same " Missing Key.plist " error when jailbreaking my iPhone 4 on 6.0.1FW using redsn0w. I came to the conclusion that my issue was that after I manually selected 6.0FW to initiate the jailbreak and then proceeded to "Boot Tethered", I hadn't selected the the 6.0FW the second time before proceeding with the tethered boot.


1-Open redsn0w and click on "EXTRAS" and "Select IPSW", choose 6.0FW. 2-Click "BACK" and then "JAILBREAK" and go thru the steps. 3- Once jailbreak is done click "BACK",then "EXTRAS", and manually "Select IPSW" choosing 6.0FW. 4-Then click " BOOT TETHERED" and follow the steps. 5- at that point you should have cydia on springboard or wait a couple of seconds and it will appear.

Do you have any antivirus or firewall programs running on your computer? What happens if you disable them and then try running redsn0w?

If that doesn't help, what happens if you try using 0.9.15b2 instead? Here's a download link for Mac, and here's one for Windows.

This happen to me too. This is how I solved it... 1. RESTORE YOUR iDevice (iPod Touch 4G, iOS 6.0.1 in this case) 2. Follow the instructions in this website ( 3. If Putty doesnt work, try WinSCP (Google "WinSCP")

MOST IMPORTANTLY, RESTORE YOUR iDEVICE BEFORE DOING THIS and remember to copy and paste the command.

Get redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and do Extras-> Select IPSW and give it the 6.0 (not 6.0.1) ipsw every time you run redsn0w. If it fails, close redsn0w, reboot the phone and try again. It does work but sometimes takes a couple tries.

Works fine for me, and this is on toiletpod (my ipt4 that I dropped in the toilet about a year ago and can only see about half the screen on).
