You were probably unlocked and killed it by upgrading. Get f0recast from and plug in your phone.

Tell us: the first 5 digits of the serial number, the bootloader, and baseband.

Get redsn0w .9.15b3 from here

Get the 6.0 ipsw (yes 6.0 even though you're on 6.0.1)

Run redsn0w- extras- Select IPSW: Give the 6.0 .ipsw

Click 'back' then 'jailbreak'

You will come to checkboxes, check "install Cydia" and "downgrade from ipad baseband"

Let redsn0w do it's thing -- you should see "moving applications" and "flashing baseband" on the device.

When it's done you need boot tethered. Select the 6.0 ipsw in redsn0w again, but this time use the "Just Boot" button after.

Open Cydia and let it load -- Search for and install "Ultrasn0w" The phone will reboot and you need to use redsn0ws "just boot" again.

When it done rebooting again, Open Cydia and add the source, and install "Ultrasn0w Fixer"

You may need to boot tethered one more time.

Cydia isnt working, because the 'just boot' didn't. What error did you get? if none, simply try again. (oh on Windows you may need to disable your antivirus)
