Can you be a bit more specific about the device and modem firmware you have ? if it's a 3gs what is the first 5 numbers of the SN.. This could help us help you a bit more. :)

it's just 6.0.1 is newer than the current redsn0w. It just needs an update.

you only load your 6.0 ipsw in redsn0w so it can access the file it needs. you're not restoring the ipsw..
