It is important to know that if your device is using iOS 6.1.2 you MUST NOT update to iOS 6.1.3 because there is a possibility of wasting your evasi0n untethered jailbreak. In this session I will focus on explaining how to jailbreak your iPhone using redsn0w only for the older devices as I’ve mentioned above.
The requirements for jailbreaking your device are:
- Redsn0w (version 0.9.15b3)
- Your iPhone or iPod touch must have installed iOS 6.1.3, if not you can download it by clicking here
- You must have iOS 6.0 IPSW, if not you can download it by clicking here.
So now you are ready to start the iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak process.
IOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak Instructions:
Step 1: First thing that you need to do is to download iOS 6.0.
Step 2: Download Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and Launch it.
Step 3: Click the Extras button and click on Select IPSW. Afterwards navigate Redsn0w to the unaltered iOS 6.0 IPSW which you previously downloaded.
Step 4: While running Redsn0w, click on jailbreak and follow the instructions provided. Shortly afterwards you will be reminded to select and install Cydia.
Step 5:After you complete the prior steps you will be informed to enter DFU mode with the assistance of the Redsn0w wizard.
If you have successfully completed all the steps, Redsn0w should initiate and the process of jailbreak using the Limera1n exploit should begin. If you want to install additional tweaks and packages to your device you can install it from Cydia.
Final note: It is important not to forget that this is tethered jailbreak so if your phone loses power due to malfunction or reboots it will be back on the state before it was jailbreaked. But this time if you want to return it to the current state all you have to do is to plug your phone to your computer, start Redsn0w, select Extras and select the Just Boot option and the process of jailbreak automatically will start.
