To jailbreak (untethered) and unlock

Download the iOS 6.0 ipsw (not 6.0.1) if you don't already have it

Connect the iPhone to USB
Open redsn0w (run as administrator if using Windows)
Click Extras -> Select ipsw
Choose the 6.0 (not 6.0.1) ipsw
Click Back
Click Jailbreak
When redsn0w asks if it's the new (fixed) bootrom, answer "no." Follow the DFU instructions
Select "Install iPad baseband" and "Install cydia"
When that completes, close redsn0w
