    Send me ios 6.0.1 unthterd jailbrek release date

  2. Phalgah87 says:

    Quick question. I understand all that and it makes sense but you said to select iOS 6.0 as the IPSW, iOS 6.0.1. I know it’s a stupid question but will this same procedure work with ios 6.0.1 or is there not a good JB for that version yet? I spend a long time trying to figure the iOS 6 versions and get nowhere fast and my phone usually gets stuck in recovery and is unable to be “recovery fixed” by redsn0w so I usually have iTunes restore then I start from scratch again. I always end up saying screw it and put iOS 5.1.1 back on again lol

    • Tmel4198 says:

      redsn0w only works with iOS 6, so once itunes updated your iphone to 6.0.1, redsn0w will use 6.0 to jailbreak but your device will still be on 6.0.1

    • Sure98 says:

      I’m wondering…. Can you send me a Download for the iphone 3gs 5.1.1 Blobs? I had waterdamage and cant restore. :(

      • Tmel4198 says:

        if you have water damage then why would you need blobs in the first place, and also you cant send blobs, they are specific to each device. no saved blobs no downgrading for you

  3. Bijay Thapa says:

    I have the same problem, and here is my question, I have already 6.0.1 firmware so do i need to choose the firmware manually?

  4. brock says:

    You must have the 6.0 firmware for your device!!! 6.0.1 firmware will come up in redsn0w as unsupported build…this tutorial is exact and works great….just did it on my gsm iphone 4….. thanks a lot!!! :)

  5. miklo says:

    Thanks mate for taking that time lol i wanted to throw my iPhone out the window ;)

  6. miklo says:

    noo nnooo waiit!!

    SSWEEEETTTT hahaha it works like a sharm =)))

  7. SLW says:

    Hi, whenever I click jailbreak it keeps saying “exploit failed” is there anyway to fix this?

    • miklo says:

      read again here and if u fail READ AGAIN!! WAhahaha

    • Tmel4198 says:

      follow the last step of entering DFU mode! hold home button for exactly 15 seconds until you see “uploading first stage” when the process starts to jailbreak or just boot. do not let go at 8 seconds when the screen changes and it starts doing the process, you must still hold for the 15 seconds

      • eob2000 says:

        No u don’t u can stop at 8 secs it works every time

        • Tmel4198 says:

          yes you do have to hold for 15 seconds if you get an exploit failed error, it all depends on how fast your redsn0w does the exploiting process, the reason it says to hold for 15 seconds is so you dont run into this error in the first place, i never said holding it for 8 seconds wouldnt work did i? no

    • Greg says:

      Try Turning off Anti Virus software…

  8. eastcow says:

    fuck yeh! Fucking sweeeetT!!!!! XD

  9. Tom Nogueira says:

    I did as explained step by step, to identify the build but the error appears again.
    Someone managed to fix this problem?

    • Eric says:

      I had to do this on my PC instead. I tried on my Mac w/ Lion and could not get rid of the exploit failed message after trying multiple times. Worked the first time on the PC.

    • Tmel4198 says:

      HOLD HOME BUTTON FOR EXACTLY 15 SECONDS, dont let go when the screen changes at 8 seconds.. Folllowing the 3rd step in the DFU process

    • bogdan says:

      it doesn’t workkkkkk

      • Nipun says:

        @Tmel4198 @bogdan
        You need to connect the iphone via a USB 2.0 port and NOT a USB 3.0 port. Many laptops and new PCs have USB 3.0 ports, and Redsn0w is not compatible with USB 3.0 architecture. Try changing USB ports. Trust me, it worked for me. I’m gonna try again today with a friend’s iphone 4. I’ll confirm afterwards.

  10. Cody Meade says:

    If this is only for 6.0, then why the fuck does it say 6.0.1. Thanks for wasting my god damn time.

  11. Cesar says:

    I did this and it worked but now, I have no wifi or Bluetooth, what can that be?

  12. saeed says:

    tanx….fuck yeaaaaaaaaah…asheghetaaaaaaaaaam lamasaaaaab…

  13. Rod says:

    Heres a challenge: how would you fix this error if your power button is broken and the phone is stuck in a recovery loop?

    Cuz im stumped.

  14. Tmel4198 says:

    For everyone with the MISSING KEYS.PLIST ERROR
    1. Exit redsn0w and turn off your phone and unplug it
    2. Plug your phone back in and then enter DFU mode without opening redsn0w yet. DFU=(3 sec lock button, 10 sec home and lock button, 15 second just home button).
    3. Once in DFU mode, find redsn0w on your computer, right click on it and take ownership/run as administrator!
    4. Open redsn0w, go to Extras>>Select IPSW>> select the 6.0 IPSW.
    5. Go back, Jailbreak! let it do its thing and install cydia and then once the jailbreak is done and phone booted on, turn off your phone.
    6. Exit redsn0w, unplug your device, plug it back in and put the phone into DFU mode! Open redsn0w!
    7. In redsn0w go to extras>>select IPSW (6.0).
    8. Extras>>Just Boot>> This is the only fix for the missing keys.plist error!!

    Just an addition to any confusion as to why the just boot wont work after a successful jailbreak and lets say you install a tweak which require you to boot like winterboard! You must always go back and select the 6.0 ipsw every time you Just Boot because it will throw that ugly missing keys.plist error at you ,if not that, it just wont successfully just boot unless selected ipsw is 6.0

    • InvictusSoul says:

      Thank you so fucking much! I love you (no homo)

    • John Allen says:

      Truly, I am not exactly certain how you figured out the succession of events to make this possible. Still, it worked and I thank you. I had been trying sequences for a day and decided to downgrade to 5.1.1 which is so stable compared to the 6′s. However, like every good little geek after I downgraded I said there has to be a way for it to work. I know you wont say. But how did you do it?????????


    • Craig says:

      I am running into this problem after successfully installing jailbreak, rebooting successfully, installing winterboard, and now I can’t reboot…
      Do I need to be in DFU mode BEFORE opening redsn0w or can it already be plugged in and powered off, THEN start redsnow, select 6.0 IPSW and just boot? I’ve tried both ways but it seems that when I am already in DFU mode when I start redsn0w it doesn’t recognize/auto just boot as it did right after the JB :(

      • Tmel4198 says:

        i do not understand what you are asking, are you already jailbroken or not. You must backup everything and restore your phone before this will work

    • Raj says:

      I was having a MISSING KEYS.PLIST ERROR. Tried all the options available on google but finally your instructions worked for me.Thanks.

      Phone : Iphone 3GS
      ios : 6.0.1
      IPSW (6.0) (6.0.1 had an issue on 12/02/2012. Do not try 6.0.1 until the issue is fixed)

      Perfomed jailbreak after upgrading my phone to IOS 6.0.1 .

    • CHris says:

      When I right click to “Take ownership/run as admin, I dont see that choice on my list. I have a imac os snow leopard. Any help? thx

    • omar f. says:

      I do have problems with jailbreaking my iPhone 3GS with 6.1.3
      How do I select iOS 6.0 as the IPSW? Please help me with instructions. Thank you in advance!

  15. XombeR says:

    Just to let everyone know; If RedSn0w shows an “Error” when you Jailbreak, then theres still nothing to worry about. Just keep following the steps and your iPhone will be Jailbroken.


  16. Skwisgaar says:

    Well i just want to say thanks to my best friend he is a real good help… thanks Google for directing me to this page :D btw the jailbreak error was fixed as you discribed in your thread thank you very much.

  17. hawk says:

    I have factory unlocked my iphone through those ebay sellers 5 months ago. It was fine till yesterday. I updated to ios 6.0.1 and bam i cant activate my phone. I hacktivate it but now it says no service and finds no carriers ? Do you have any idea about it. I contact my seller he is checking the issue but please make a blog about how to fix no service issue about 6.0.1. Lot of people seems to have that problem.

    Thank you

  18. Billy Bob says:

    Worked great and all my jailbroken apps work, only problem is Cydia is not installed .. or not showing up .. any ideas (not a great problem at the moment, but would prefer it there) also seems that my cydia tweaks are not working i.e. android lock screen, sbsettings etc

  19. JonLondon says:

  22. ross says:

    Quick fix for everyone! After jailbreaking just make sure to go back to extras, select ipsw and select the 6.0 file , just boot,dfu and voila problem solved! Worked for me and i needed to do nothing else! Apparently it needs the iOS 6 file to boot each time or you will get errors

  23. pooya says:

    Thanks man, it worked!

  24. ghassan abbas says:

    How to fix unsupported IPSW 6.0

    • Tmel4198 says:

      you must make sure you are downloading the correct one, a lot of the IPSW online arent labeled correctly for the specific iphone. iPhone 4 CDMA is iOS 6.0.1 3.3 IPSW

  25. Alex says:

    Thaaaaaaanx ! Well done !

  26. Bob says:

    Hi, I have a iphone 4 updated to ios 6.0.1 and I have a windows laptop. I downloaded the build,went into redsn0w, and into extra’s and into the IPSW but when i look for the iphone buld its just a file with more files in it that are empty. I have tryed downloading other ones but it keeps happening. When I download the iphone build its just a file I dont get the dice thing. PLEASE HELP!!!

    • Michelle says:

      I had the same problem because my ios6 file downloaded as a .zip file onto my pc. You will have to convert the .zip file to a .ipsw file and it will show up as the dice thing. You tube showed me how to convert a .zip file into a .ipsw file. Good Luck!

      Same problem here, iPhone 4 GSM, followed all the instructions, repeated the process – no jailbreak.

    • Dukeion says:

      Just got it – don’t follow the ‘enter recovery mode’ steps. Just plug in every time with the device powered off and let Redsn0w walk you through the DFU entry.

  55. Ms Scorpio says:

    Cydia will not load on my iphone for nothing go thru all the process and nothing is happening what can i do

    • Rafa says:

      Me too, MS Scorpio, but the cracked app’s work without Cydia.

      I only need that Cydia appears.

      I think that our Iphone are JB but for one reason the Cydia app can’t install or is hidden.

    • Rafa says:

      Hi, Ms Scorpio I solved the issue restoring the iphone and then repeating the process,

      Now! I have Cydia in my phone.


    • Firooz says:

      When I jailbroken my device, the cydia wasn’t there, I just repeated the boot option as provided above and the cydia appears after restarting my device. but you shall use <EXTRA \SELECT IPSW, and choose the ips 6.0, go back and just reboot when your device is in DFU mode.

      The last critical is the backup…. Applying backup wouldn't install your applications and saying unable to install (just popping every-time), you shall keep your device in DFU mode again and reboot then sync with iTunes and the things are the same as it was….
      My device is just charming lolz…

      please rephrase, do not understand what you are asking

      • Dov says:

        I’m experiencing the same issue. After I’ve installed the jailbreak, I try to “Just reboot”, which is the last step, but this doesn’t work. Redsnow just gets stuck on “Waiting to reboot”. Any ideas?

  66. jimmy says:

    Thank you so much, if there is an iphone god, you must surly be it :)))

  67. Stefano says:



    work like a charm!!!!!!

  68. Tony says:

    Thanks for the instructions. I got all the way to the last step where you select the ipsw file and just boot. It looks like its about to work and then the phone freezes at the pineapple and wont boot up. I am selling this piece of junk and looking for an iPhone with iOS 5.1.1. I never had any problems with that version.

  69. jono says:

    Ok im running ios 6.0.1 bb 06.15.00 on a 3gs
    i have redsn0w_win_0.9.15b3

    i followed every detail my result is exploit failed

    i have downloaded and attempted to use firmware : iPhone3,1_6.0_10A403_Restore

    after Jailbreak shows error but i ignore and keep following instructions…
    but same result exploit failed … as a side note if i try to open cydia on my phone it tries to open but closes straight away? any suggestions?

    • Tmel4198 says:

      must hold the home button for exactly 15 seconds and don’t let go when at 8 seconds the screen changes and shows the jailbreak or just boot process, depending on what your doing such as entering DFU, or Jailbreak, or Just Boot, you must hold the home button for 15 seconds following the last step in entering DFU

  70. Rodrigo says:

    It´s works perfect! Thanks a lot!!

  71. Les says:

    Just followed the procedure to the letter, and cannot believe that I didn’t get the Missing Keys.Plist error. Not only that, all the preinstalled apps like Safari are now working.

    Many thanks to Tmel4198 for all the hard work in solving this problem.

  72. doomjoshuaboy says:

    there is one problem when you turn off your device still got the jailbrake on and when you turn back on, it comes up with the apple sign and it turns everything back to normal but still got the jailbrake apps on it.
    so be sure when you want to put it back on just go to extras on redsn0w and just boot and it will get your jailbrake back

  73. Mike says:

    Thank you soooooo very much!!! I tried other sites instructions but this worked!!!

  74. Pete says:


  75. Tchouck says:

    I tried, and followed the steps exactly how you meant it to, Still doesnt work for me. I got further in the process till the pineapple logo, then it takes forever, then my phone just reboot back to normal without being jailbreak

  76. Ryan says:

    I tried this exactly multiple times and it hasn’t worked. i got passed the pineapple logo and got to the just boot step but then got the missing keys.plist error. I have fully restored my phone to factory settings with 6.0.1 firmware and dont know whats wrong anyone have any ideas?

    • Tmel4198 says:

      follow my instructions exactly, it will work

      • Tmel4198 says:

        must also download the 6.0 IPSW not the 6.0.1 because it jailbreaks the 6.0 but keeps your phone on 6.0.1! must also follow the just boot method and select the 6.0 IPSW every time before you just boot or you get the error again

  77. Akiris says:

    All of you who get exploit failed message, someone stated earlier that u need to hold for whole 15 seconds the Home button as stated in DFU tutorial. So dont enter DFU using iReb or smt like that. Just turn off your phone, start redsnow, select IPSW>select 6.0, go to jailbreak, select install cydia, click next and redsnow will guide u to enter DFU mode. in step 3 when 8 seconds are left, if u entered correctly DFU, when 8 seconds till end pops it will start working, DO NOT LET GO OFF HOME BUTTON, BUT KEEP IT PRESSED UNTIL U HEAR SOUND OFF AND ON FROM UR COMPUTER, THEN LET IT GO AND IT WILL START TO JAILBREAK. Im sorry for the caps peeps, but i was stuck on exploit failed error for like 2 hrs, until i read above about the 15 seconds holding home button step. after that worked like a charm from the first try.

    Hope this helps


  78. Tmel4198 says:

    keep it held until you see “uploading first stage”

  79. ben says:

    m still stuck at the pineapple. I also waited long time at the reboot. Have tried too many times already…may use snowbreeze instead.

    cant find the firmware when it asks to select ipsw

  83. Anferny says:

    Hey Tmel I’m getting stuck at the Waiting for Reboot screen after the second stage. I really don’t know what to do.

    • Tmel4198 says:

      1. Do a fresh restore.
      2. Run redsn0w as admin
      3. Follow the instructions at top of page^^
      4. When going into DFU mode make sure when your on step 3 you hold the home button for exactly 15 seconds and no less! when the screen changes at 8 seconds you still have to hold the home button. To be safe keep holding it until you see “uploading first stage” or “uploading second stage”
      5. This should help you get out of the stuck reboot because sometimes messing up DFU mode will put the phone into a recovery state or not on at all

      Hope this helps

      • Anferny says:

        Alright so somehow I got to the point where the jailbreak data was getting uploaded to my phone. The screen was black but the Ipod’s backlight was still on. Is that DFU mode? Because that was the one time it worked and all the other times my screen was black without the backlight on. Anyway, after everything was loaded the screen said

        Please Wait…
        Please Wait…
        Please Wait…
        Please Wait…

        Then I screwed something up somehow and started fresh by restoring the Ipod and trying it all over again. I know in your directions at the top it says to put it into DFU mode before opening redsn0w but even at that I’m still getting stuck at the Waiting to Reboot… after the second stage is complete.

        I’m still extremely confused as to why it’s not working. Even when I follow your steps perfectly it still gets stuck at the waiting for reboot screen. Any idea whats going on?

        • Tmel4198 says:

          It seems to be a problem with your phone or you are not entering DFU mode correctly which can cause lots of errors, what iphone do you have and what service

        • Tmel4198 says:

          try all over again and see if you can get past the waiting for reboot again because you did it once already. if you can get back to the redsn0w completing the jailbreak and rest takes place on the phone. when your phone is doing the:
          Please Wait…
          Please Wait…
          Please Wait…
          Please Wait…
          Just let it be and it should work.

            It’s the 4g iPod actually haha. That’s what I meant when I said phone my bad. I’ll try this again and I’ll keep you updated. Thanks for the quick responses dude.

      • Anferny says:

        See this is what’s confusing me now, in the guide above you’re telling me to enter DFU mode before opening redsn0w but then you’re telling me to to hold the button down until step 3. That would mean I’d have to enter DFU mode after I open redsn0w right? Because if I enter DFU mode before it automatically starts the jailbreak process.

        Also when it’s telling me I’m missing the keys.plist it says my ipod is build 10a523, rather than the 10a403 which I’ve been uploading when I select my ipsw.

    Woow. Thank you!. It was the solution that i was looking for..!!

  92. Beginner Veteran Jailbreaker says:

    Okay I’ll keep this simple, detailed, and quick. (my iPod is 6.0.1 updated)
    I followed specific instructions on an video to jailbreak an iPod 4G. However, there were specific differences: his iPod was the “white version” which he didn’t mention any difference, but as I download an ipsw for mine, there are two different ones out there, iPod4,1_6.0_10A403_Restore and iPod4,1_6.0.1_10A523_Restore. I still don’t understand the difference except that when I select the 523 file, redsn0w says it’s not supported, but I have the latest version of redsn0w as well.
    Then I started over and followed the video again, but with the other ipsw, which is the 403. Everything worked perfectly except until I opened Cydia and finally downloaded Winterboard for themes. I rebooted my iPod after the download was finished and opened Winterboard, but it kicked me out every time I tried opening it, and so did Cydia and nothing was working. Took me several hours to finally have Cydia removed and my iPod restored to its backup. I also checked in my settings>about>version, which shows me it is 10A523. Where do I go from here?
    My iPod is a black 4G, 8GB, iOS 6.0.1, and version 523. I still have redsn0w and both ipsw files. Explanation is appreciated. Steps will be loved. Thank you.

    • Tmel4198 says:

      You use the 6.0 IPSW to jailbreak 6.0.1, it is shown in the instructions. you use itunes and update your ipod to 6.0.1 then download the 6.0 IPSW from this website (6.0 not 6.0.1)
      and then in redsn0w you select the 6.0 IPSW and click jailbreak, then when you go to just bott tou must go back and select the 6.0 IPSW everytime you need to reboot your phone or you get the missing keys.plist error

      • Tmel4198 says:

        the reason you use 6.0 and not the iPod4,1_6.0.1_10A523_Restore (6.0.1) is because redsn0w hasn’t been updated to support 6.0.1, your iPod will stay on 6.0.1 it just needs the 6.0 IPSW to jailbreak it. Once you get it jailbroken, you must turn off the phone and in redsn0w extras, select the 6.0 IPSW again and then go back and click “Just Boot” when entering DFU mode make sure in the last step where you hold the home button for 15 seconds to not let go when the screen changes at the 8 second mark, you keep it held until you see “Uploading first stage” or else you will get an exploit failed error

  93. Lindsay says:

    Thanks so much!!!!

  94. nunod75 says:

    Hi people, could someone help me please. I do all the steps with success, but at the end, Cydia doesn’t appears!!!! Why is this happening to me??? What i do wrong??? The apps that i get with the older Cydia, they work, but i can’t have Cydia. Help me please!!!
    Best regards

  95. Tmel4198 says:

    Then you didnt do all the steps, after you jailbreak you have to select the 6.0 IPSW and Just Boot the phone so cydia will appear because it is tethered jailbreak.


    you forgot to check mark “install cydia” when the screen shows up after clicking on jailbreak

  96. KP says:

    This version of redsnow didnt support,&( i already have redsnow verison 9.15b3),,when select the IPSW..plz get me out of this error,,

    Nice Work!
    Thank you very much !!

  99. Hadee says:

    This didn’t work. Still got same error. Help please?

    • Tmel4198 says:

      you have to follow instructions perfectly, it does work.

      1. Make sure you have latest redsn0w and that you have the correct IPSW which is the 6.0 and not the 6.0.1.

      2. Make sure you are entering DFU mode correctly before you plug your phone in, remember that the last step of the DFU process (3rd step) that you hold the home button for 15 or more second)

      3. Try again and again it will work

  100. Quang says:

    It works perfect.

    Thank for sharing :)

  104. TeruiRyu says:

    before jailbreak must restore the phone?

    • Tmel4198 says:

      well it basically restores your phone in the first place and ya if you dont want to run into erros, it always works best with a fresh restore

  105. Calvin Kong says:

    Before jailbreak the iphone, the iphone must be restore?

  106. BVN says:


  107. Kenny says:

    Thanks man! This finally worked for me.

  108. Alex says:

    Thanks! it really helped me :D

  109. Saam says:

    Worked like a CHARM and its the only way to fix this problem … the most important thing in this procedure is that you must Select IPSW 6.0.0 instead of 6.0.1 (even if you have firmware 6.0.1 installed on your device)and for the starters you must come out of DFU then turn your device off For Jailbreak(Step 5) and Just Boot (Step 8) Section (No Shit Sherlock!!)
    And Mr.Tmel4198… You Sir is Kinda Out There !!

    • Tmel4198 says:

      so first you cant find the IPSW, you cant spell SIM card correctly and now you are saying no cydia?

      man follow the damn instructions

  113. mike says:

    hey man can you please help me i do all the steps right when ever i install cydia its says exploit failed how can i fix this problem ?

    • Tmel4198 says:

      You are not entering DFU mode correctly, you must hold the home button for 15 seconds or more on the last step (step 3) even though the process starts at 8 seconds, keep on holding your home button till you see “uploading first stage” or “uploading second stage”! That is how you get passed the exploit failed process.

  114. M says:

    DUMASS – get off the capslock if you want anyone to help you…

  115. Snark says:

    I’m doing something wrong here. I get all the way through it successfully (seemingly) and the very last step after the tethered boot gives me a pineapple on the iPhone (4) screen that just stares at me for 10 minutes before eventually rebooting normally with no Cydia installed.

    I’ll try again from zero, but I may just wait for an untethered JB solution for ios6. Can’t see where it went foul – it looked like it was going to work there for a while…

    • Tmel4198 says:

      restore and rejailbreak is your best bet, something went wrong. a lot of peoples phones are doing that for some reason and i’m sorry to say their is no actual solution, but that sometimes the phone wont boot up correctly with the pineapple

  116. Antonio says:

    For “Step 3″, How do I “take ownership/run administrator???” Thanks so much!

    • Tmel4198 says:

      if you have windows 7 just right click on it and you will see both those options, or just right click and go to properties>compatability>run as admin (check mark it) its at the bottom

      • compgeek says:

        Hello I have downloaded the firmware but I cannot find the ipsw file. Also, after downloading the firmware when I am extracting the files, I get an error after it has successfully extracted that iPhone2,1_6.0_10A403_Restore does not exist.

    Thanks a lot!

  118. John says:

    I did everything step by step. I put it in DFU mode and jailbroke it. I saw the RAM disk and all the codes. Then it turned on and I turned it off. Put it into DFU mode and rebooted it with redsnow. But it took 20 minutes to turn on and when it did it didn’t have cydia. Help me please! What should I do?

  125. latte says:

    I have done everything in here and it still gives me the Missing Keys.plist error. Is that because every time i select the ipsw file it tells me “That IPSW is not supported by this version of redsn0w.”

  126. glenn says:

    hi, i open redsnow and select browse ipsw’s and i open my firmware file but i dont see the logo with iphone2,1_6.0…
    i see three more files (all_flash, dfu and usr and they all lead to redsnow saying no items match your search. can u help?

  127. nunod75 says:

    That’s not fair!!!
    I do all the steps correctly, even the 3rd step i stay 18 secs, select the iPhone3,1_6.0_10A403_Restore firmware, all seems to be perfect, all my app’s work fine, so it is jailbracked, right? But after the last reboot………… no Cydia!!!
    Where the hell is it???

    • Jeff says:

      After the jailbreak, Did you:
      1. close out redsn0w
      2. unplug your phone
      3. power your phone off
      4. set your phone in to DFU mode
      5. restart redsn0w in adminstrator mode
      6. reselect the ipsw file (iphone3 1_6.0_10a403_restore.ipsw)
      7.and then click just boot

      if you did, then cydia will show. Remember, this is a tethered jailbreak. No untethered jailbreak has been offered (expected Dec 22 2012)

      ??? let us know.

    • Tmel4198 says:

      Yes please let us know, Thanks jeff for helping

    I’m stuck. I’m following the steps after I get the error, but when I get to the part where I’m suppost to select my ISPW, it automatically opens up to browse in my documents. There’s no firmware folder, or iOS 6.0 folder… I can’t find it anywhere.

  131. James says:

    I downloaded the correct IPSW file however, there is not IPSW restore file in it labeled .IPSW? I have an iPhone 4 with 6.0.1.

  132. Backintosh says:

  137. Clayton says:

    Cant find the IPSW thanks for nothing .

    • Tmel4198 says:

      YOU DOWNLOAD IT FROM THIS WEBSITE< you do not need to browse for your IPSW at all. That is not even part of the instructions. You download the 6.0 IPSW from this website and then select it in redsn0w from the downloads folder

  138. Batman says:

    Yo can I use 5.1.1 instead of 6.0.1?

    • Chan says:

      it depends on if you have saved up your SHSH for 5.0.1 or any other previous IOS version.

      • Heather says:

        how do I save and retrieve SHSH? I have an Iphone 3gs with IOS 5.1.something and I also have an Iphone 3gs and 4 with IOS 6.0.1 I hate IOS 6 and want IOS 5 on my other phones, how can I do it? Thanks a bunch for any help you can give!!

    • Arshiya says:

      Dont get too over excited and download alot of things and this can cause your springboard to crash and your IDevice will keep going into Safe Mode.
      This usally happens for iphone but i think it happens on ipod and ipad.

  151. Brass says:

    ok, so now I have a problem…the above worked and the phone booted up. It had been in recovery loop because I think maybe someone had tried to jailbreak before but given up. However, the Jailbreak instructions as above for the missing keys.plist error worked and the phone booted. It went to the ‘set up’ mode asking me to slide to set up. In the top left corner it says ‘searching’. After ‘sliding’ I select British English for Language and move to the next screen and select United Kingdom, then ‘set up as new iphone’ which takes me to the Apple ID page. I select ‘Sign in with Apple ID’ and I get a message telling me ‘Could not sign in. There was a problem with the connection to the server’ with an ‘OK’ button underneath, but the screen is frozen at this point. After a few seconds the phone turns off and reboots showing me the Apple logo and it takes me back to the beginning of the set up again. Pushing the Home button brings up the ‘Emergency Call, Start Again, Cancel ‘pop up’. If you leave this the phone tries to reboot. Any ideas anyone?

    Hey i’m stuck at the select IPSW thing. when i try to select my IPSW its says that its not supported by red snow and i downloaded the redsnow IPSW for ipod touch 4G
    what to do??
    Also when I downloaded the IPSW 6.0.1 iPod touch 4g, it’s not that logo that looks like a (Lego), it’s a lot of files. Please!!!!! Help! Thank you

    • Tmel4198 says:

      It’s the 6.0 IPSW you must download; not the 6.0.1, the only thing that needs to be on 6.0.1 is your device, but the jailbreak process requires 6.0 IPSW selected

  156. Lanita Collazo says:

    I have tried everything for about an hour and I can’t get the ipsw to go away and jailbreak please give me some tips on trying to get this to work. Thanks:))

      select correct IPSW…6.0 IPSW can be downloaded from this site, make sure you choose the correct one for your device and not the 6.0.1 IPSW

    I did everything you said, i have an iphone 4 running ios 6.0.1 an used a 6.0 firmware for redsnow but when it boots theres no cydia installed even though those white words showed up on the iphone screen.

    • Tmel4198 says:

      Then you did not do everything i said, you must boot tethered after the jailbreak for cydia to show up, in redsn0w click extras and select the 6.0 IPSW you used to jailbreak, then go back and click “Just Boot”..cydia will show up and you must do this process every time you reboot

    • Tmel4198 says:

      Try these seteps:
      -Try a different USB.
      -Run redsn0w as Admin.
      -Restore your iDevice and start over
      -Follow all the steps precisely without any mess ups
      -Different computer

      if none of these work its the device itself

When I goto the folder there is no IPSW file located within. In the Firmware folder, there are three folders: all_flash, dfu, and usr, and a file: ICE2.Release.bbfw. I have looked in every folder in the IPSW download and simply cannot find the file I need. Something is wrong with the file, or I’ve done something wrong. Please Help.

  184. Clau says:

    I did this and I got “exploit failed” :/

    • Clau says:

      Got it working eventually, holding home button throughout the process. I was going in DFU before but it wasn’t working and I did try holding the home button all along. Dunno what happened

  206. Earl25 says:

    I tried jailbreaking my iphone 4(6.0.1 10A523)with the IPSW Iphone3, says it’s downloading(with the pic of the hard drive and green arrow) and then I see all the small text and it gets stuck on “please wait”, but also gives me the missing key error. So I tried what Tmel said about the error and re-jailbreak and boot and the pineapple appears on the screen but once again is stuck and after a few mins of being stuck just goes back to reg iphone mode. I’m a first timer and know this is prob some stupid screwup on my behalf, but can anyone tell me where I’ve gone wrong with the jailbreak???

  207. Mike says:

    Just where do you find the 6.0 IPSW? its shows it under firmware but my PC doesnt point to this?

    • Mike says:

      sorry – im downloading it now from the website – the one marked for my 3GS is shown as iPhone2 etc not the IPhone3 in the above tutorial. Is that OK?

  208. DNA64 says:

    This is NOT the only way to fix this error :P
    You could do things the proper way an manually add the missing keys to the keys.plist file.

  209. James says:
