open your redsn0w, go to EXTRA>SELECT IPSW>SELECT and select iPhone2,1_6.0_10A403_Restore.ipsw not iPhone2,1_6.0.1_10A523restore.ipsw

go back and click Jailbreack your iphone have to be at UDF mode, select install Cydia, after reboot iphone, open again Redsno0w go to EXTRA>SELECT IPSW> and select iPhone2,1_6.0_10A403_Restore.ipsw not iPhone2,1_6.0.1_10A523restore.ipsw than click at JUST BOOT. that it after rebot your phone you see cydia. open cydia go to source and add new repo "" after install search for Ultrasn0w Fixer install it and finaly search for Ultrasn0w and install it

(09 Jan '13, 13:09) manothbi manothbi's gravatar image

I understand and did everything you told me. The cydia icon does not appear on my screen and now i have noticed that my email is not working anymore. I think that something went completely wrong and i am re-installing ios 6.0.1

(09 Jan '13, 14:35) bravonc bravonc's gravatar image

cydia instal just after you rebbot whit JUST BOOT and must be selected IPSW 6, did it many time and it work fine

(09 Jan '13, 14:43) manothbi manothbi's gravatar image check this tuto

(09 Jan '13, 14:46) manothbi manothbi's gravatar image

@bravonc Email not working means you did not "just boot" tethered in redsn0w. Restoring will not help that. You NEED the 6.0 NOT 6.0.1 even if you are running 6.0.1. Follow the detailed redsn0w instructions here very very carefully, it's all there, slow down and read it.
