Hey everyone,
Last year I jailbroke my old iphone 4 with redsn0w (tethered) and then got a new phone and forgot about the old one... Well I just found it and I need to tethered boot it with my computer in order to use cydia but when I select the IPSW with redsn0w on my computer it says that "that IPSW is not supported by this version of redsn0w" which is strange because it worked fine last year, same program and IPSW. Can anyone help I need to boot my phone, thanks in advance!
Welcome to iPhoneForums. Please take the time to peruse our forum rules and keep them in mind while posting.

You'd need to select the 6.0 IPSW for your frequency of iPhone 4 (GSM or CDMA), regardless of whether your device is on any iOS 6.X, because RedSn0w hasn't been updated for 6.0.1+ support.
