With each new iDevice or iOS released on the market, people hurry to purchase it and afterwards to jailbreak it. It has become a normal issue to jailbreak your iDevice in order to gain more freedom concerning certain things and aspects. However, some iOS versions might be considered quite a headache for developers who cannot find the solution for an untethered jailbreak. This also happens in the case of the iOS 6.0.1. If you plan to start untethered jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 on your device, you might want to wait a little bit longer.
First, only a tethered jailbreak is available for iOS 6.0.1 running devices, more specifically on A4-based devices. However, if you own an older boot device such as iPhone 3GS, you can be glad. This particular device is suitable for running iOS 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak.
However, if you want to start jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 tethered on your device, you need to upgrade to the latest firmware and then to download Redsnow on your computer. Keep in mind to start backup before you start jailbreak. In this way, you will keep all your data safe in case that something goes wrong.
Step 1: Now, install and launch Redsnow on your desktop computer which you connect your device.
Step 2: Click on Extras, then select IPSW and choose the current firmware running on your device.
Step 3: Enter your device in the DFU mode and choose Jailbreak. This will start the jailbreak process on your device. Redsnow will tell you if you placed your device in the DFU mode correctly.
Step 4: If you have not checked the AutoBoot option in Redsnow, it means that you will have to manually redo the third step each time you turn off your device. Otherwise, all you have to do is to connect your device to a computer and Redsnow will boot tethered.
When the reboot is completed, you will be able to notice Cydia Store on your homescreen. This means that the jailbreak process was successful.
In what concerns the new iOS 6.1 released for developers, we are glad to tell you that tethered jailbreak iOS 6.1 is available also with Redsnow. However, you should not hurry to upgrade to iOS 6.1 unless you are a developer and you know what you are doing.
