Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

Right after I put my iphone in DFU mode it starts to process the jailbreak and then stops and gives the following error message:

Missing keys.plist data for this build Device: iPhone 4 ECID:4061664433453 Build:iphone3, 1_6.0.1_10A523

Do you know what this means and how to fix it?

Is there any other way to fix that error without pointing redsn0w to 6.0 IPSW. Waiting for your answer desperately..

Why you do not want to point to 6.0, it does not install that, it just tricks redsn0w to work on 6.x

Since all versions of iOS 6 are virtually the same, it's simplified to where you just point to iOS 6.0. That is currently the only way.

Choose the 6.0 ipsw, not 6.0.1 as the guide here says.

Point to ipsw 6.0. Also keep in mind there is no untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4 on iOS 6.0 or 6.0.1 so it is really for developers only.
