How to Jailbreak iOS 6.0.1(Tethered) for A4 Based iPhone and iPod touch with Redsn0w
Apple has released a new version of its Operating System dubbed as iOS 6.0.1 and surely the jailbreak community is curious to know how to jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 since jailbreaking makes them enable of doing unlimited activities which aren’t possible with an unjailbroken iOS device. Many thanks to iPhone Dev Team for creating Redsn0w like amazing jailbreak tool for jailbreaking iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
After testing Redsn0w to jailbreak new iOS 6.0.1 we are proud to confirm that it absolutely works but, at present, it is limited only to those iOS devices that are vulnerable to the Limera1n jailbreak tool i.e. A4 or lower. This means that the owners of new iPad, iPod touch 5G and iPhone 5 would have to wait for sometimes.
Notably, it is a tethered jailbreak that means that each time you switch your device OFF or reboot, you’ll have to connect to your PC or Mac in order to get it ON for running again. However, having a device without any jailbreak is inferior to a device with jailbreak even a tethered one, but it creates some panic for users.
Compatible iOS devices:
As we have described above, it only supports the iOS devices running A4 or below, so the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and the 4th-gen iPod touch are compatible with it. Any of A5, A5X, A6 or A6X based device will not work at all. Moreover, it also works to jailbreak iOS 6.1 Beta 1 version too.
How to jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 (tethered) with Redsn0w:
2. Now, download iOS 6, and the new iOS 6.0.1 for your device and update your device to iOS 6.0.1. [Download iOS 6.0.1]
Note: Carrier unlockers should strictly stay away from this Redsn0w jailbreak.
3. Then, run Redsn0w.
4. Click on Extras –> choose IPSW option and manually point it to the original iOS 6 (not iOS 6.0.1) file for the device you want to jailbreak. Once the file has been identified by the Redsn0w, tap the Back button to go back to the main screen of Redsn0w.
5. Now, click Jailbreak, then choose Cydia and follow the instructions prompted into DFU mode. Once Redsn0w does its work, choose “Autoboot this device when it connects in DFU mode,” which will put your device into tethered mode.
Congratulations, you have done the work accurately.
Booting Your Device Tethered:
As mentioned earlier, you’ll have to “boot tethered” every time you reboot or switch off your device, and you can perform it by opening Redsn0w, navigating to Extras and then Just Boot.
