To jailbreak or Tether Boot your device on iOS 6.0.1 you'll need to point redsn0w to the 6.0 IPSW every time you load it.

Like so..

Download your Stock 6.0 IPSW for your device.

To find your IPSW file click your device on this page

Download the latest redsn0w here

1 Load redsn0w

Windows users need to always right click the app and select " run as administrator "

2 Go to " Extras > Specify IPSW " and load your stock 6.0 ipsw.


To Jailbreak - Hit Jailbreak on the main screen and follow the steps and install Cydia..

To Tether Boot - Go to " Extras > Just Boot " and follow the steps shown.


USB connection error - Stuck on Pineapple Logo - Reboot computer and device, Switch usb ports and try again..

thanks mark... sorry am not an expert but i kno d steps ellaborated above, my question is... is stock 6.0 the same with firmware 6.0ipsw?

(20 Jan '13, 11:50) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

ipsw ( iPhone software ) = firmware.. Just find the 6.0 firmware for your device and load it in to redsn0w every time you load it like my post says. you'll also need to do that to tether boot.

(20 Jan '13, 11:52) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

i have problem with selection the latest redsnow... i downloaded and still tells me "this version does not support the ipsw" and that seems to be d highest version of the link u gave me above... thanks for your time and kind patience

(20 Jan '13, 12:12) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

download redsn0w 0.9.15b3 from the link in the post above..

(20 Jan '13, 12:22) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

i still got the "unsupported ipsw" error message... am so out of idea right now

(20 Jan '13, 12:39) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

then you have the wrong ipsw or redsn0w...

redsn0w 0.9.15b3 ?

Load redsn0w and go to Extras > even more > identify

Replay back with your product type :

(20 Jan '13, 12:42) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

only d "custom ipsw" tab enables me pick either of the stocks... but i dont know if i can still go tru dat process,... do the "select IPSW" and "custom IPSW" tabs perform same task? thx

(20 Jan '13, 12:44) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

This is the " 6.0 " ipsw you need to load in redsn0w as shown above " every time you load it ",1_6.0_10A403_Restore.ipsw

(20 Jan '13, 12:44) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

that will get you past the " missing keys.plist data for this build "

(20 Jan '13, 12:45) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

to load your 6.0 ipsw in redsnow do this..

Load redsn0w and go to Extras > Specify ipsw & load your 6.0 IPSW.. NOT 6.0.1

(20 Jan '13, 12:46) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

am on the redsnow rite now and theres no where it says SPECIFY IPSW... i could see the SELECT IPSW, CUSTOM IPSW...amidst other tabs... is SPECIFY IPSW same with SELECT IPSW... cos clicking the SELECT IPSW keeps popping UNSUPPORTED IPSW... fingerprint: ***

(20 Jan '13, 12:52) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

i have loaded the 6.0 and still popping same error code... even after downloading the latest redsnow frm the link u sent above.

thank a million... i appreciate every stp by stp guide from u sire... i completed the jailbreak and tryd to tether boot but it displays error regard d shsh blobs... and deres no network on my iphone,,, no service it displays... and d cydia doesnt come up. how can i go about this pls. thx

(20 Jan '13, 16:24) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

you don't need shsh to boot tethered. just follow the same steps you took to jailbreak. Load redsn0w and select your 6.0 ipsw then go to " extras > just boot and follow the steps.. again no SHSH to boot tethered. if redsn0w ask for it then you did something wrong..

(20 Jan '13, 16:27) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

thx sire... i got it all correctly having my phone jb with baseband 06.15 but no service... i read about downgrading/upgrading baseband.. but i dont understand which baseband would work for my iphone 3gs 6.0.1

(20 Jan '13, 18:11) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

use redsn0w to downgrade that bb.. then you need to install ultrasn0w and ultrasn0w fixer if on 6.0.1

(20 Jan '13, 19:47) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

to downgrade the bb load redsn0w and load your 6.0 ipsw like before and hit " jailbreak " then DE-select cydia and only select " downgrade ipad bb " if it don't work the first time try it again. you should end up with 05.13 witch works with ultrasn0w and fixes GPS. don't forget to install the ultrasn0w fixer if on 6.0.1..

Honestly it sounds like you should not be tethered jailbreaking, a tethered jailbreak is not practical for someone who is not tech savvy and does not understand the intricacies of a tethered jailbreak. (it's a pain in the ass). I love my jailbreak, but it's not for everyone.

(20 Jan '13, 20:01) JuergenWest ♦ JuergenWest's gravatar image

thanks for the headsup JuergenWest... i also love jailbreak, dont u feel i too should enjoy it? Markhack took me tru all the processes step by step until i arrived at where i am currently... i got a no service all d way... pls i'd appreciate any help u rendered here... thanks

(20 Jan '13, 20:48) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

(20 Jan '13, 21:03) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

(20 Jan '13, 21:20) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

try UN-installing and reinstalling both ultrasn0w packages and rebooting the device. let it sit up to 5 mins after doing that.. and anytime, it's what we are here for.

(20 Jan '13, 21:24) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

though the ultrasn0w fixer i got here in my cydia says ultrasnow fixer 5.1.1... is that exactly wat am looking out for?

(20 Jan '13, 21:29) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

6.0.1 add this repo in cydia

(20 Jan '13, 21:33) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

i noticed dat whenever my device is restarted, d cydia crashes wen i try to open it and safari doesnt function... until i have to go tru redsnow tethered boot... is there anyway i might have don something wrongly?

(20 Jan '13, 21:34) topmaic topmaic's gravatar image

that's what tethered is, you'll have to follow the tether boot steps to reboot your device.

(20 Jan '13, 21:36) Mark Hack ♦ Mark%20Hack's gravatar image

After all that, you wanna pirate. What a waste of time.

people who "insist" on "needing" a jailbreak, only want it for one reason.. to steal apps, thought it was obvious to y'all from the get go.. sad but true.. this is why I politely steer them away earlier on in the convo..

You'll get no more help here, thief.

I really am sorry @y'all... I may have misunderstood d process... I don't have any bad intention... It's just dat where am frm we really aren't used to such purchases... Thanks for the headsup... I love learning and I think I've just learnt a great lesson dat "don't pirate good ppls effort". I love u all... I got my iPhone working and I've started purchasing my apps frm App Store as appropriate. Except for the push not working wen apps are closed... Thx guys, I can still live with dat and ill forever appreciate ur love and kind attention y'all
