Apple has released the final version of iOS 6.1 for public. You must found it interesting that you can jailbreak this iOS 6.1 easily by using the latest version of Redsn0w.

You can run different apps and tweaks on the device by using tethered jailbreak. To make this jailbreak function, the device must be plug in to a computer on which Redsn0w must be running. You have to connect the device with computer every time you start it up. A drawback of this jailbreak is that you cannot use it on your latest Apple devices, like iPhone 5, latest iPads, or iPod touch. This jailbreak is only compatible with older devices, like iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, and iPod of 4th generation. If you have a newer iPad, or you possess an iPhone 5, don’t worry, we will bring you a jailbreak soon that you can easily use to jailbreak iOS 6.1 on your iPhone 5.

This is a 4 step procedure and you don’t have to be very technical with it. Just follow these simple steps and you are done with jailbreaking iOS 6.1 for your iPhone:

Step 1: Download iOS 6.1 and original 6.0 (Download Link) on your device. This is the basic requirement for the jailbreaking. We need iOS 6.0 to jailbreak, as Redsn0w is officially not updated for iOS 6.1 yet.

Step 2: Whether you are using Mac or Windows, download Redsn0w 0.9.15.b3.

Step 3: Click Extras button, select IPSW and then select iOS 6.0 IPSW. Give few seconds to Redsn0w to recognize the file.

Step 4: You would see an option of jailbreak, click it. Another screen will appear, click next and select “Cydia”. Now you have to reboot your device in DFU mode. The next step would be to follow the on-screen instructions.

Now let the Redsn0w do it work. It would jailbreak your device using Limera1n exploit, and install “Cydia” on it. Select the option of “Autoboot this device when it connects in DFU mode”, once the jailbreak is completed. If you are successful to perform this step, it means that you have jailbreak your device properly.

As this is a tethered jailbreak, you must reboot your device in a jailbroken manner every-time. For this purpose, connect your device to a computer on which Redsn0w is running, go to “Extras” on its main screen and select the option of “Just Boot”. If you do not use to switch off your cell phone at night, you might not need to do this more often. It may only be needed when you have to switch off your phone due to shortage of power.
