Download the iOS 6.0 (not 6.0.1) firmware for your device from When it's done downloading, click Extras -> Select IPSW in redsn0w and open the firmware you downloaded.

So after i downloaded it, Itunes poped up, and every time I try and open the firmware, Itunes pops up. I assume thats where it was saved to but i cannot locate it within Itunes anywhere

You don't open it, you use redsn0w.
