How To Jailbreak iOS 6 On iPhone 4, 3GS And iPod Touch 4th Gen

Today the iPhone Dev Team has updated Redsn0w to include native Cydia support for iOS 6 on the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or the 4th-generation iPod touch through a tethered Jailbreak.

This guide will walk you through the simple steps required to Jailbreak iOS 6 and thanks to the new Redsn0w update, you can be Jailbroken in a matter of minutes!

Steps for both Mac and Windows-based PC users: 

1. Download Redsn0w from the below download section and run it. Also, if you’re running either Windows 7 or Windows Vista, you’ll need to right click Redsn0w, set the compatibility mode to Windows XP (service pack 2) and run the program as an administrator.

2. Plug your iPhone or iPod touch in via a USB cable and click the “Jailbreak” option.

3. Enter DFU mode to bypass the instructional screen by following these easy steps:

  • Press and hold both the power and home buttons together for a total of ten seconds.
  • After ten seconds has passed, release the power button and continue holding the home button for an additional ten to fifteen seconds.

4. Ensure that the option to install Cydia is checked by default (ignore “install custom bundles”).

5. Wait for the process to complete and for your iOS-based device to reboot (refer to the video embedded above).

6. Close Redsn0w and reopen it – this step is crucial.

7. Once Redsn0w is open, select “Extras”, followed by “Just boot”.

8. Enter DFU mode for a second time to proceed to boot your device into its fully-functional Jailbroken state (follow the DFU instructions outlined in step three).

Congratulations, you are now Jailbroken on iOS 6! While you’ll needed to perform steps seven and eight every time your iDevice reboots, you can install what’s known as a Semi Untethered or a Semi Tethered Jailbreak to reboot without a computer (limitations apply – see this tutorial for details). Stay tuned for future iOS 6 Jailbreak tutorials!

    I’ve tried to jailbreak my ipod touch 4g before when I had IOS 5.1.1 and I couldn’t get it right, it told me that I had to connect my ipod touch to Itunes so I had to download the firmware again and install it back, now I have IOS 6.0 , do you think that if I try jailbreaking it again it’ll happen the same thing?

  • Agnes Laurent

    hi, I have a 3gs iphone and I would like to know if I can unlock my phone after this jailbreak?

  • willis12345

    Oh, and is there anything new and improved with this version? I already have cydia installed using the 0.9.13dev4 but as I mentioned below, I can’t sync or reinstall previously installed JB apps or even new ones. So what I’m asking is, is there any benefit from rejailbreaking this time round?

  • willis12345

    You didn’t mention whether you can rejailbreak over the previous 0.9.13dev4 version of Redsn0w?

    Also, does this mean I can finally sync and instal JB apps from 5.1.1? I haven’t been success in doing so, using Appsync 5+ or even using the ssh (installous) method so far. Itunes won’t sync them and they crash everytime I ssh and try to instal them via installous.
