    Cool Jailbreak for A4 devices running 6.1.3 to 6.1.5

    The untether jailbreak is currently out for the A4 devices running 6.1.3 to 6.1.5, the supported devices are the iPhone 4 and the iPod Touch 4G only right now, but a tool should come out in the next few days supporting any device running 6.x.x.

    If you are currently tethered on 6.1.3 to 6.1.5 all you need to do is this:
    1) Open Cydia
    2) Click on "Mark Upgrades".
    3) Search for p0sixspwn and install
    4) Reboot the device

    If you are using an iPod Touch 4G and wish to upgrade to 6.1.5 before jailbreaking here is what you need to do:
    0) Set up iTunes for an Encrypted Backup. This will save your passwords and settings, you can disable it later. (This makes restoring quicker and more painless) Also make note of what jailbroken apps/tweaks you installed if any.
    1) Open up iTunes and backup your device
    2) Click on restore. Do not click on upgrade!
    3) While iTunes is doing its thing you will need to download the latest version of redsn0w and the 6.0 IPSW.
    4) Unzip redsn0w to your desktop and move the IPSW to the redsn0w folder
    5) After iTunes finishes restoring your device set it up as a new iPod. DO NOT RESTORE FROM BACKUP AS OF YET!
    6) Exit out of iTunes and make sure your device is setup proper. If not, go through and set it up on the device as a new one. Skip setting up an Apple ID. Skipping connecting to WIFI and Location Services is optional.
    7) When the device is setup and at the home screen, plug in the power cable and turn off the device.
    8) Open redsn0w and click on jailbreak and follow the instructions.
    9) Let it do it's thing.
    10) Now it's jailbroken but what's this? You don't see Cydia. Well this is a tethered jailbreak right now, remember. Turn off the device.
    11) Open up redsn0w again and click on Extras.
    12) Click on Select IPSW and open the 6.0 IPSW. Yes the 6.0 IPSW, don't worry it will work.
    13) Click on "Just Boot" and follow the instructions.
    14) Cydia should now be there. Open it.
    15) Let it do it's thing and wait.
    16) Click on "Mark Upgrades".
    17) Search for p0sixspwn and install it.
    18) Reboot the device.
    19) Open iTunes and restore from the Encrypted Backup you made.
    20) All your settings for wifi, FaceBook, Twitter, etc are back as well as all your non-jailbroken apps.

    Non-jailbroken people that wish to jailbreak follow these steps:
    1) Download the latest version of redsn0w and the 6.0 IPSW.
    2) Unzip redsn0w to your desktop and move the IPSW to the redsn0w folder
    3) Open the folder and open redsn0w.
    4) Click on jailbreak and follow the instructions.
    5) Let it do it's thing.
    6) Now it's jailbroken but what's this? You don't see Cydia. Well this is a tethered jailbreak right now, remember. Turn off the device.
    7) Open up redsn0w again and click on Extras.
    8) Click on Select IPSW and open the 6.0 IPSW. Yes the 6.0 IPSW, don't worry it will work.
    9) Click on "Just Boot" and follow the instructions.
    10) Cydia should now be there. Open it.
    11) Let it do it's thing and wait.
    12) Click on "Mark Upgrades".
    13) Search for p0sixspwn and install it.
