I have just connected my iPhone 3gs updated by most recent version of iTunes to computer via USB, run evasi0n 1.6.2 as administrator and my iPhone is not detected by this soft. I also run old version of evasi0n (1.5.3) and this version sees my phone, writing message that iOS 6.1.3 is not supported.

What am I doing wrong that I cannot jailbreak my 3gs with newest evasi0n?

Evasi0n does not support iOS 6.1.3, as it states. See the blue text at the top of this page and click it. Also, the current version of evasi0n is 1.5.3. If you have a later version, do a virus scan; you have a fake.

Evasi0n 1.5.3 is the latest version of Evasi0n. Any later versions are not official, and do not work. If you paid for any version of evasi0n, demand a refund or open a dispute with your payment provider.
As for jailbreaking your iPhone3GS, you can jailbreak for sure, but you may not be able to do an untethered jailbreak. The difference between a tethered jailbreak and an untethered jailbreak is that with a tethered jailbreak, each time you reboot the device you have to plug it into a computer and boot tethered. To help you determine if you can jailbreak untethered, what are the first 5 digits of your serial number?

Evasi0n cant jailbreak iOS 6.1.3.It only works with 6.0 though 6.1.2

You need to use redsn0w 0.9.15b3.Download the iOS 6.0 IPSW for your device and visit this tutorial

Thanks a lot for your answers. I downloaded this version from here:

Wasnt aware this can be fake because it looks the same as original soft from evad3rs.

King Shoot Thanks for tutorial, I will follow it with hope that I will finally have my 3gs jailbraked and working (I had problems with sim card which didnt work. when I tried to "Install ipad baseband" with redsn0w, my phone displayed error message and stucked keeping restarting all the time so I puted it into DFU mode and updated with iTunes)

And this is where I am not, with iOS 6.1.3, not activated system.
