Ok, I am attempting to Jailbreak my iphone 3gs. It has IOS 6.1 installed. I have downloaded ispw 6.0 as required, and am using Redsn0w 0.9.15b3. Everything works fine, it completes the jailbreak fine. But it will not install Cydia. I have tried re-doing the jailbreak a few times now. I have also just tried booting tethered, and nothing seems to work. I do not have it hooked up to wifi, if that makes a difference. I am using my other iphone as a hot spot and feeding internet to it though. Would it need to be wifi connected? Thanks for any help!

No it was definitely checked. I double checked that several times.
