Update: @iH8Sn0w and @winocm has released an untethered patch for pre-A5 devices (iPhone 3GS New Bootrom, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch) This works for 6.1.3 and 6.1.6. Upon following the instructions to tethered jailbreak your device, open up Cydia, and install the package called "p0sixspwn" from Saurik's Telesphoreo default repository, and reboot your device.


iOS 6.0 - 6.1.2: if you're not using Evasi0n (why not?), you can follow this guide to tethered jailbreak your pre-A5 device, then install the "Evasi0n Untether for iOS 6" to untethered patch your device.

iOS 6.1.3,6.1.4,6.1.5 and 6.1.6: Follow this guide and install the "p0sixspwn" package to untethered patch your device or run the p0sixspwn utility outlined here.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This guide will teach you how to TETHERED jailbreak your iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 CDMA, iPhone 4 GSM, iPhone 4 World and iPod Touch 4th Generation. Note that the iOS 6.0 - 6.1.6 uses the iOS 6.0 IPSW REGARDLESS of what iOS 6.X you're on on your iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4th Generation. For iPhone 4 users, make sure you download the correct iPhone3,X IPSW. Make sure that your device is either a CDMA, GSM or World 4.

The instructions in this guide is the same when using iOS 5.1.1 and below for all devices, and for iOS 6.0-6.1.6 for pre-A5 devices. The Boot Tethered at the end is dependent on whether your jailbreak is tethered or not. Check this post to see which iOS and device combinations are tethered, and which are untethered. If you are jailbreaking iOS 5.1.1 or below, the procedure is still the same BUT replace the IPSW with the IPSW that matches your device for that specific iOS. Ex. iPhone 3GS on 5.1.1 will use the iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.IPSW in place of the 6.0 IPSW outlined in this guide. The reason this guide is titled with 6.0-6.1.3 is because if it was named it as "How to Jailbreak RedSn0w, it would be flooded with 'Can I jailbreak my iPhone 4S/5 on iOS 6.1.3 with this' or this would be ignored.
This set of instructions is compatible for the following device/iOS combinations as well:

  • iPhone 2G/3G/3GS/4 on iOS 6.1.6 and below
  • iPad 1 on iOS 5.1.1 and below
  • iPod Touch 1G/2G/3G/4G on iOS 6.1.6 and below
  • iPhone 4S on iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 and 5.1.1
  • iPad 2 on iOS 4.3 - 4.3.3, 5.0, 5.0.1, and 5.1.1

For iPhone 3GS users that have the OLD BOOTROM, following this guide will result in an untethered jailbreak for any and all iOS versions.

In this guide, we'll be sampling with an iPhone 4 GSM.

Also, if your device's power/sleep button is broken, meaning you cannot manually DFU your device, follow this guide

The guide is foolproof. If you follow it to the word, you'll jailbreak your device.

Thank you for all your help but how long should it take to reboot it's been on "step eleven" for about 30-45 minutes now

When I get to "Wait for reboot" during the jailbreak, my Iphone's screen goes black, but is still backlit. It just sits for a while and nothing happens.

No problem. Skip ahead to the Boot Tethered portion on the bottom. That should fix the issue

Missing key.plist errors are tied to the IPSW. Make sure you select the 6.0 IPSW before Just Booting and that it's the proper IPSW.

I must be doing something wrong. I got all the way through the long white code scroll and to the pineapple screen, stuck on the moving apps, then the phone shut down and the apple symbol came up and booted as if nothing happened. I then shut the phone off, and tried to "Just Boot" and then it says missing keys. I have a Verizon iPhone 4 and downloaded the 6.0 under CDMA. I gave selecting the IPSW another try and then trying but it is now stuck in "Waiting for Reboot". Any tips?
