Step-by-step Tutorial: How to Jailbreak and Unlock iPhone 3GS Using RedSn0w 0.9.15 (Windows) [iOS 6.0]



UPDATE: Apple released iOS 6.0.1, so you can NOT restore to earlier firmware (both original and custom), unless you have saved your SHSH keys. If you are on iOS 6.0 right now you can use this tutorial.

This is step-by-step instructions on how to perform jailbreak and unlock of your iPhone 3GS on iOS 6 firmware using RedSn0w 0.9.15 for Windows.

If you have iPhone 3GS with an old bootrom version 359.3, the jailbreak is untethered. If your device has bootrom version 359.3.2 and higher, jailbreak will be tethered. You can detect your bootrom version using this tutorial.

Tethered jailbreak means that each time you restart your device you will need to connect it to a computer and run redsn0w.

The iPad 4 Has Been Jailbroken



Chpwn has posted an image showing Cydia running on a jailbroken iPad 4.

It doesn't look any different than on the iPad (3rd generation), but here's Cydia running on the iPad (4th generation): pic.twitter.com/zhrii6uX

Recently, MuscleNerd posted to show that the jailbreak discovered by chpwn was working for the iPad mini.

Last month, chpwn revealed that his jailbreak would be reserved as a failbreak. That means it will be limited to jailbreak developers and won't be released to the public. This is being done to make it easier to discover new exploits (which will be used for public release) in the future.

RedSn0w updated to version 0.9.15b3



The iPhone Dev-Team has announced an updated version of RedSn0w and an upcoming update to UltraSn0w for iOS 6 compatibility.

Version 0.9.15b3 fixes the redsn0w “error 2601” that Windows users were seeing using the Restore button. It also fixes a related Windows iTunes error 14 for stitched files. Note that if you have a baseband, you should probably avoid stitching and simply use redsn0w’s native Restore (not iTunes).

Those lucky recipients of new iPad minis and iPad4s on Friday can use this redsn0w to save your 6.0 blobs off to Cydia. First connect your new device and turn it on, then use redsn0w’s Extras->SHSH Blobs->New and point it at the 6.0 IPSW.

Expect an ultrasn0w compatibility update for iOS 6.0 by Friday (mostly useful for 3GS old-bootrom users who are currently enjoying the untethered 6.0 jailbreak!). Same baseband support as with 5.x.

Thanks to @iamgolfy for helping test the 2601 Windows fix!

You can download the latest version of RedSn0w from here.
