Jailbreak iOS 6
Jailbreak iOS 6 GM

The iOS 6 (6.0) Gold Master (GM) was released yesterday with Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 5. Today Redsn0w was updated to 0.9.13dev4 to provide a working jailbreak for the 6.0 GM.

This the iOS 6 jailbreak is restricted and only works with the iPod Touch 4G and iPhone 4.

This iOS 6 jailbreak is tethered and will require a procedure to boot up every time your device is turned off.

This iOS 6 jailbreak will not give you Cydia, instead you will get ssh privileges.

With all that in mind, lets get started.

Video Tutorial  


Redsn0w 0.9.13dev4 (Mac/Win)(On Downloads Page)


  1. Download and open Redsn0w 09.13dev4.
  2. Click “Extras” – “Select iPSW” – Then located the GM
  3. Click “Back”, then “Jailbreak”
  4. Make Sure “Install SSH” is clicked then click “next”
  5. Plug in and put your device into DFU mode (See video if confused)
  6. Jailbreak device
  7. Open Redsn0w again click “Extras” – “Just Boot”
  8. Wait for your device to boot up and it should be jailbroken (Cydia will not appear)
Complete Steps 7 & 8 every time your device shuts off to turn it back on.
Hope this tutorial helped. Leave a comment if you have a question and we will try to get back to you.

    i have been trying to jailbreak my ipod 4g ios 6 and redsnow is saying it doesn’t recognize my fingerprint and i downloaded the right ipsw but i was told to rename plint as ipsw which i did and redsnow says it cant recognize the fingerprint what do i do?

    • YVbakker

      @JohnnySanders you’ve probably got a corrupt ipsw. Try to redownload, keep your webbrowser open and your account and make sure the size of the downloaded ipsw is around 800-900 mb (i had this problem as well first and this worked for me)

      • JohnnySanders

        I got it fr the se place I got redsnow and I downloaded from absinthe as well neither work and the one on the iPod came directly from apple I updated over wifi from the iPod itself and I backed up software but it doesn’t show in my app data files
