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.

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.
