try disabling that, if that don't work un-install and reboot and hope that works. use MSE ( Link ) if you use anti-virus on windows. it don't mess stuff like this up and stays up to date ( free )

that's supported and if installed on your device the correct ipsw.

(23 Apr '13, 18:32) WalterWhite WalterWhite's gravatar image

Why are you using an ipsw at all with evasi0n? There's not even an option for that.

i was usin redsnow

Then use evasi0n. It's much easier. Redsn0w ONLY works with the 6.0 (six point ZERO) ipsw.

than you very much...cydia is installed,i guess its jailbroken now...i have to do anything else or not ?

(23 Apr '13, 18:56) JuriBobi JuriBobi's gravatar image

Nope, you're jailbroken. I would save your 6.1.2 blobs with iFaith (use the "Dump" button) as soon as possible.

sure you're on the 01.59 baseband ? " cydia " don't unlock your iPhone you mean "ultrasn0w " ? and did you install the " fixer " if you did remove it and reboot your device ultrasn0w 1.2.8 don't use the fixer.
