Fix Redsn0w Stopped working on iOS 6 Jailbreak

How to fix Fix Redsn0w Stopped working on iOS 6 Jailbreak ? I recently tried jailbreaking my iPhone 4S (currently running iOS 6). In redsn0w, I selected the iOS 6 IPSW, it accepted it, and I selected the jailbreak button, following all instructions with the iPhone being connected and all. About a second after clicking jailbreak, redsn0w stops working, becomes unresponsive, and I have to close it. Running Windows 7, running redsn0w as administrator.
I heard a problem could be running the IPSW that you get from updating, and that perhaps using the global ISPW from the download link will work. I’m attempting that now.
