How to Jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 on iPhone 4/3GS & iPod Touch 4G Using Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 [Tethered]

Yesterday, we brought to you a post regarding the latest version of Redsn0w, which is version 0.9.15b3. There isn't much to expect aside from the fact that it fixes various bugs and adds the ability to save the iPad 4 and iPad Mini SHSH blobs. And no, the list of devices that can be jailbroken is iOS 6 is still pretty much the same which means that only A4-based devices are supported. Thanks to the LimeRa1n, all pre-A5 devices are pretty much susceptible to being jailbroken as the exploit lies within the hardware itself. This means that even with newer firmware versions like with the recent iOS 6.0.1 update, A4 devices can be jailbroken right off the bat. Here's a guide on How to Jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 on iPhone 4 & iPod touch Using Redsn0w 0.9.15b3.

Jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 Using Redsn0w

Before You Proceed:

  • This jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 tutorial is only applicable to the following devices: iPhone 4 (GSM & CDMA), iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 4G.
  • Like pretty much all iOS 6 jailbreak so far, this is a TETHERED jailbreak. So every time that your device powers down or reboots, you will need to connect it into your computer and run it over Redsn0w.
  • Of course, you will need to be in the latest firmware in order to use this jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 guide. Download iOS 6.0.1 for your device here.
