Jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 Semi Untethered iPhone 4,3GS And iPod Touch 4

This morning, March 19th, Apple released iOS 6.1.3 to the public. Unfortunately, the new firmware patches the 6.0 through 6.1.2 Untethered Evasi0n Jailbreak solution that functions on all devices running earlier versions of iOS 6.  This tutorial will assist older iDevice owners in the process of Jailbreaking the latest firmware, of course if you’re looking for an Untethered Jailbreak, check out our written Evasi0n tutorial for iOS 6 through 6.1.2. Again, as previously stated, this article will guide you through the simple steps required to Jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 (Semi Untethered), which can be accomplished in a matter of minutes.

Before we begin, you’ll need the following:

  • An older, A4-based device (either the iPhone 4 or the 4th generation iPod touch) or the iPhone 3GS (both new and old bootrom models are supported) running Apple’s latest iOS 6.1.3 firmware.
  • Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and your iDevice’s corresponding 6.0 IPSW, both of which are available in the download section.

Steps (for Mac and PC users): 

Jailbreak 6.1.3 Cydia

1. Download the latest version of Redsn0w from our download section below and run the utility.

  • If your computer is running either Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8, you must set the compatibility mode to Windows XP Service Pack 2 and run the program as an administrator by right clicking it.

2. Connect the iPhone or iPod touch to your computer via a standard 30-pin USB cable and click “Extras” inside Redsn0w.

3. Click “Select IPSW” and point the selection window toward your iOS 6.0 IPSW, not 6.1.3 - we’re employing a basic workaround for this Jailbreak tutorial.

4. Once the IPSW has been successfully identified, click “OK,” navigate back to the main Redsn0w screen and click the “Jailbreak” button.

5. Ensure that the option to “Install Cydia” has been checked by default and enter DFU mode by following the simple steps listed below:

  • Press and hold both the home and power buttons for a total of ten seconds.
  • Release the power button and continue holding the home button for an additional ten to fifteen seconds.

6. After the Jailbreak process has finished and your iPhone or iPod touch has booted up again (the video is an excellent indicator of approximately how long the entire process should take), close Redsn0w and re-open the utility.

7. Like before, navigate to “Extras,” “Select IPSW” and browse for the iOS 6.0 firmware file. Click “OK” to the prompt, select the option to “Just boot” and enter DFU mode by following the instructions found in the fifth step.

Congratulations, once your device reboots again, you will have a Tethered Jailbreak on iOS 6.1.3!

    • butteryflame

      after you jailbreak all you have to do is if your safari or anything else isn’t working just do what he did in the video and reboot it in redsnow. remember its not an untethered jailbreak its a tethered jailbreak.

  • HI


  • John Darlench

    I downloaded the IPSW for 6.0 for my iPod 4g but it says “That ispw is not recognized by this current version of redsnow fingerprint” what do I do?

  • Bram EnderBolt

    The jailbreak went good, but when I rebooted to make Cydia appear, it went into recovery mode. I tried everything. I tried to reboot it a few times; same thing happened. When I try the ‘stuck in recovery’ thing in redsn0w, it just says error, try again, with a description of how to turn it off and stuff. I really don’t know what to do and I really don’t want to lose everything on my iPod, can someone help me?

  • JoshSmith

    i downloaded it and it ran through the process with no errors but just isnt putting cydia onto my ipod. what should i do?

    I have an iPhone 4,
    If i download the iPhone 4 (GSM) 6.0.1, and i select that ipsw via RedSn0w, then i press jailbreak and it says:

    Error preparing data:
    Failed to decrypt kernel

    If i download the iPhone 4 (CDMA) 6.0.1, and i select that ipsw via RedSn0w, everything works up until it is put in DFU mode:

    Please wait while your build is being processed.
    Uploading first stage

    And it just stays this way..
    Anyone know what to do?
    Let me know please

    • dk

      Im guessing its because you are using the 6.0.1 ipsw instead of the 6.0 ipsw

  • Squilly

    Every time I follow your link, select “iPhone4 6.0 GSM,” and download, it downloads the following: “iPhone3,1_6.0_10A403_Restore” I don’t know what to do to download the correct one.

  • Squilly

    Looks like helpful information. But it is so out of focus you can’t see what you are doing.

  • uroboro

    i have a trouble with my iphone 4 series when i do the jailbreak everything perfect, but the iphone never reboot by end the jailbreak help please

  • Mauro

    Does this work with windows XP SP3?

  • Gergő Pálinkás

    I followed your instructions to jailbreak my iphone 3gs 32gb 6.1.3, everything
    went fine, till i installed the „Volume Boost 3x4x5x” from cydia. after that i
    restarted the phone and tried to restart with redsnow „just boot” option, but
    doesnt work. i tried it 3 times. okay, i
    will repeat the jailbreak, i did it, it was fast, and then after reboot
    jailbreak worked. i restarted the phone, and the jailbreak still works, i tried
    it many times without redsnow and it works! :D so i did a full jailbreak, no need
    redsnow anymore. :D

    • Aj Aubert

      Are you serious? No way, I dont believe it but I have to ask.

      • Gergő Pálinkás

        Im serious, i will make a video from my phone, and upload it.

  • JUan

    i cant enter DFU mode…

  • Destinyng

    After the last step,step 7, Cydia didn’t appear still. What should I do? I followed all the steps correctly though.

  • rtg

    Cool ass

  • Rockses

    When i press “Jailbreak” after selecting the ipsw,a window appaers to me ans says :
    ”Error preparing data”
    failed to decrypt kernel”
    What can i do?

    • Jeronihmo

      Same problem, PLEASE HELP?

  • Cody Thayer

    my pc disconnects from the iphone 4 every time i put it in DFU mode and redsnow wont let me continue with the jailbreak and a message pops up sying “no device detected” . is there anything i can do to fix that?

  • Kris

    redsn0w said “That IPSW is not supported by this version of redsn0w”.
    my iphone is 3gs and i have the latest version of redsn0w.
    Please helllppppppppp

    • Somebody123

      You probably downloaded the wrong IPSW.

  • (put name here)

    it says “failed to decrypt kernel” when i press the jailbreak button

    • Somebody123

      You probably didn’t select the 6.0 IPSW before clicking the “Jailbreak” button.

  • otherguy

    I’m on windows 7, where do i set the compatability mode to windows XP service pack 2?

    • (put name here)

      right-click the icon then select properties then once the properties page comes up at the to click compatibility then it will will say “Run this program in compatibility mode for:” then press the drop-down box until you find “windows XP service pack 2″

  • thisguy

    it will not decript my kernal

  • beatJI

    For all of those with the problem “cydia app does not appear”: You probably have the wrong version of 6.0 IPSW.

    Install and run LINPACK from the appstore to know if you have iPhone 3,1 or 3,2 or 3,3. Then make sure the right version match your IPSW file.

    hope this helps, cheers!

  • fed

    i dont which to download

    iphone4 CDMA
    iphone4 GSM

    help >.<

    • ifinngraal

      CDMA is Verizon

      • cody

        what do i do for sprint?

        • Shawnsnyder

          GSM = AT&T and T-Mobile and their subcarriers

          CDMA = Sprint and Verizon and their subcarriers.

      • sucmadik

        no it is not it is the model year that the phone was made look it up..

  • Blaa

    Is there a iPad 6.1.3 jailbreak?

    • (place name here)

      probably, but it is probably really hard to find and cost like $20 too

      • Somebody123

        EVERY legitimate jailbreak tool is FREE to download. If you see one on the internet in which you have to pay real money (or do a survey before downloading), then it’s a scam!

    • Somebody123

      No, there isn’t one… yet.

  • kevin

    does this work for iphone 4s 6.1.3?

    • Somebody123

      No, only iPhone 3GS and 4.

      • sucmadik

    it says that this ispw does not work with this version of redsnow what do i do?

    • Somebody123

      Either you downloaded an outdated version of redsn0w, or you downloaded the wrong IPSW. You need the 0.9.15b3 version of redsn0w and the 6.0 IPSW, NOT 6.0.1!

  • Jackie

  • Iphone Support

    @93272b772d4bfe07fae0a4450b15b8fa:disqus it will give you the decrypt kernel error when you try to select the 6.1.3 ipsw. remember d/l the 6.0 ipsw for your 6.1.3 device and you should not see that error.

    • Somebody123

      I’m not gonna lie. I tried this in my 4th generation iPod touch and IT WORKED!! Seriously!
      The main reason of why the jailbreak is not working for them is because THEY DON’T FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.
      Trust me, it works. It REALLY works!

    • Anwar

      You have to choose 4G/ 6.0, because 6.0 is the required IPSW.
      Hope this helps.

  • Nick

    I have a few questions. What is the difference between semi untethered and untethered? If I jailbreak my iPod 4th Gen, will I be able to uninstall it, back to normal, and if so, then how can I do that? And will I lose any data on my iPod like, photos, apps, and notes? Thanks!

    • Somebody123

      Tethered: Your device will be stuck on the Apple logo if you don’t reboot using redsn0w.

      Semi untethered: Your device boots up normally but with limited functionality (Safari and other apps crashes). To fix this simply reboot using redsn0w.

      Untethered: Your device boots up normally without any problems and you don’t have to reboot it using a program, just like you would on a non-jailbroken device.

      And yes, it is possible to remove the jailbreak from your device. All you gotta do is plug your device to your computer, put your device in DFU mode, open up iTunes (it will detect that your device is in “Recovery Mode”), click “Restore”, wait a couple of minutes and your device will be back to normal.

      Also, no. Jailbreaking wouldn’t delete your stuff, but it is recommended to make a backup through iTunes.

      Sorry for the long comment, but I hope it helps.

  • breebree

    pls help im stuck on the wait for reboot screen on redsnow and i have been on the screen for a while now can you tell me what im doin wrong and how i can make it work pls thanks my email is donnorchiano@gmail.com

  • stuck

    does this work with iphone 4s? please help

    • somebody123

      It is just me or the people on the internet are gradually becoming more stupid?

      The answer to your question is “No!”. As it says on the god damn instructions, you need “an old A4-based device (either the iPhone 4 or the 4th generation iPod touch) or the iPhone 3GS”!

    All i get is “Failed to decrypt Kernel” ..

    I did notive that the ipsw supplied was 6.0.1 so i am wondering if it has to be 6.0 ive just started reusing my iPhone 3gs again and upgraded the software to 6.1.3 because i had to network unlock it and now i would like to put some custom tweaks on it …..

    any help would be appreciated

  • Brian

    I have a Verizon iPhone 4, I tried both versions of 6.0 available. One
    of them just decided to get me stuck on “Please Wait” then straight to
    reboot with no change, the other decided to get my phone stuck waiting
    for a reboot. After quitting the entire process my phone got stuck in
    DFU mode for 10 minutes while I had a meltdown. Not sure what I’m doing
    wrong here?

  • BatBane@yrsrvice.

    While converting the tethered into semi-tethered, after putting the repo in the box and clicking on ‘add source’, the box ‘Verifying Source’ pops up but then after like 8-10 seconds, it shows that ‘Verification Failed. The request timed out.’ box.
    I am using an iPod Touch 4g. Any suggestions?

    TURN AROUND PEOPLE. This isn’t a real jailbreak, it’s just a way for the writers of this site to get more ad revenue. It doesn’t work at all (tested iPod 4g).

    The download link requires you to subscribe and like the page. Obviously it’s a scam.

    • jackoo81533

    The fix for the problem of ´´waiting for reboot´´ plug in your device in different usb ports and try the process in every port also if you are on a laptop make sure its pluged in the charger because a low usb voltage can interrupt the process.if that didnt work make sure you have the latest redsnow version

      Hey good news, i just figured it out! Basically just unplug your device (while in DFU mode), turn on redsnow, go to extras, select 6.0 ipsw then plug your (DFU device) back in again. After that click on “Just Boot”. The device will boot up successfully.

      Good luck to all! :)
