Make sure to select the 6.0 IPSW in redsn0w before booting tethered. See these instructions:

To boot tethered: open redsn0w, click "Extras" and click "Just boot". If that doesn't seem to work, go back to redsn0w's "Extras" menu again, click "Select IPSW", and then select the iOS 6.0 IPSW for your device (you can look for the IPSW file on your hard drive or download a copy of the right IPSW file for your device). Then click "Just boot" to boot tethered.
