How to fix some mysterious problems.

I tried to upgrade my iphone that was at ios 4.1.1 to 6.0.1 by using redsn0w. I downloaded iOS6.0.1 and iOS 6.0.0 in order to do this. I used the Restore option to upgrade my iphone in order to preserve my baseband of 2.10.04. Everything goes well. However, afterwards when i need to recovery fix my phone, it keeps saying exploit failed or missing keys.plist. I hold down the home button the whole time and I also select the iOS 6.0.0 ipsw before trying to using recovery fix. Now my phone is stuck in recovery mode and I'm getting really annoyed. Any help would be appreciated. I already googled solutions for 2 days. If possible, could someone skype with me to help me out?

Did you go to extras>Select An IPSW and select the 6.0 IPSW?

Just curious why you are trying to preserve the 2.10 baseband with iOS 6, there is no practical reason for this that I am aware of.

Gevey does not work with iOS 6. You will need to be on iOS 5.1.1 and baseband equal or less than 4.10.01

Buy an IMEI unlock from No way to downgrade without SHSH.

For iOS 6.0.1, you can use sn0wbreeze to create a custom no baseband ipsw. Place in pwnd DFU, restore in shift+restore in iTunes. Activate via original carrier SIM (or any SIM if Factory Unlocked). On a side note: just curious why you are trying to preserve the 2.10 baseband with iOS 6, there is no practical reason for this that I am aware of.
