I wonder where you paid $50. Redsn0w is a free tool, so demand your money back if you still can. If you paid by credit card, contact your bank, so that they can help you. All jailbreaks are free!

Ok, first we need to know your device. If it's a newer device (iPhone 4S, iPhone 5), it cannot be jailbroken on iOS 6.0.1 and you can't downgrade.

If you want to jailbreak an iPhone 4 or 3GS, then yes, you can get a tethered jailbreak by using redsn0w, pointing it to iOS 6.0 ipsw file, even if iOS 6.0.1 is installed.

Use the comment button. You demand a refund as the jailbreak is FREE.

I just looked at their site and the "included packages" (3G Unrestrictor, MyWi, Enable MMS, etc.) are not really included; they say to install it from a pirate repo (which is down now anyway). And for the "included" video converter software they include a static license key, probably stolen from somewhere. A classic scam. Simply thieves. Don't pay these $50 to your bank and act quickly. For the jailbreak: If you have a 4S running iOS 6.0.1: You cannot jailbreak it right now.

Claim a refund. You were scammed. Just download the 6.0 IPSW.
