How to Jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 on Pre-A5 Devices
A TETHERED Jailbreak is now available for iOS 6.0.1! Currently, this Jailbreak ONLY works on Pre-A5 devices. This only meaning those with an iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, & iPod touch 4th Generation can take advantage of this TETHERED Jailbreak.
[VIDEO is provided down below by our very own JBTech17 if you rather watch]
What you will need:
- Pre-A5 device [iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4th Gen]
- iOS 6.0.1 Installed on your iDevice
- iOS 6.0 **Download here: http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ **
- Redsn0w 0.9.15b3
Step 3: Extract the contents of the downloaded compressed file and save it to a familiar location on your PC or Mac.
Step 4: Run the executable Redsn0w file, making sure to run in administrator mode if using a Windows based machine. If you are on Mac OS X, simply open up Redsn0w
Step 5: Select the Extras option from the main menu of the Redsn0w and select Select IPSW and point it to your downloaded iOS 6 IPSW/firmware.
Step 6: Go back and select Jailbreak.
**Due to this being a TETHERED Jailbreak, the following Steps 7-9 will need to be done each time your battery dies or you must restart your iDevice**
Step 7: When the Jailbreak is processed, go back into Redsn0w and select Extras.
Step 8: Put your iDevice into DFU mode [Simultaneously hold Home/Power button for 10 seconds. Let go of Power while STILL holding Home button for another 7-8 seconds]
Step 9: Once put into DFU mode, click on Just Boot.
