    Exclamation IOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak Successfull (tethered Jailbreak)

    If youíre an iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPod touch 4G user and accidentally upgraded to iOS 6.1.3 then the good news is that it is still possible to jailbreak your iOS device using Redsn0w.

    In this article we show you how to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 that was just released using Redsn0w.

    Here are some important points to note before you proceed.

    This guide is meant for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G users.
    Warning: If you depend on Ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone, then DO NOT update to iOS 6.1.3.
    Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 only supports a tethered jailbreak, which means that you need to connect your iPhone to the computer on every reboot (except iPhone 3GS with older bootrom).
    It is currently not possible to jailbreak iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini and iPod Touch 5G. Weíll let you know as soon as there is any update so donít forget to join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or add us to your circles on Google+ or subscribe to our RSS feed.
    Please note that jailbreaking your iOS device may void your warranty and hence proceed with caution and at your own risk.
    Please do not forget to backup your iOS device before you proceed. You can refer to this post for instructions on how to backup your iOS device using iCloud or this one to backup your iOS device using iTunes.
    Please ensure you are running latest version of iTunes.
    This method uses an iOS 6.0 jailbreak with the iOS 6.1.3 filesystem, so it could cause some unknown issues.
    Check out this post to find out the improvements in iOS 6.1.3.

    You can follow these step-by-step instructions to jailbreak your iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G on iOS 6.1.3:

    Step 1: Download Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 (Redsn0w 0.9.15 beta 3) from this link and save the application in a folder named ďRedsn0wĒ on your desktop.

    Step 2: Download iOS 6.0 firmware file (yes, the trick is to point Redsn0w to the iOS 6.0 firmware file) for your iOS device from the links mentioned below:

    iPhone
    iPod touch

    Step 2: Connect your device to the computer and double click the Redsn0w zip file and extract the application. Navigate to the Redsn0w folder and launch the Redsn0w application.

    Windows 7 users should run the exe in Windows XP compatibility mode (right-click on the Redsn0w exe and select Properties, then select the Compatibility tab and select Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP). Windows XP and Windows 7 users should run Redsn0w as ĎAdministratorí (right-click on the Redsn0w exe and select ĎRun as an Administratorí).

    Step 3: Click on Extras button.

    Step 4: Then click on the Select IPSW button. Navigate and select the firmware file download in Step 2. It should successfully identify it.

    Step 5: Go back to Redsn0wís main page and click on the Jailbreak button.

    Step 6: Redsn0w will now start preparing the jailbreak data.

    Step 7: You will now be prompted to select the jailbreak options. Make sure Cydia is selected and click on the Next button to continue. iPhone 3GS users can also select Enable battery percentage option.

    Step 8: You will now need to prompted to put your iOS device into the DFU mode. Redsn0w will take you through the necessary steps:

    (a) Hold the Power button on your iOS device down for 3 seconds:

    (b) Now simultaneously hold the Home button and keep the two buttons pressed for 10 seconds:

    (c) Now release the Power button while keeping the Home button pressed until Redsn0w detects the device:

    Step 9: Your iOS device should reboot now. Please remember to release the Home button.

    Step 10: Your iOS device will reboot again and Redsn0w will now begin uploading the new RAM disk and kernel.

    Step 11: You will be notified once the jailbreaking process is complete. Click on the Ok and then Quit button to exit the application.

    Step 12: The rest of the process will take place on your iOS device, wait for it to complete. Your iOS device will reboot once again (which could take approximately 5 minutes). You will now see the Home screen on your iOS device, but Cydia would still be missing, thatís because you still need to tether boot your iOS device using Redsn0w. So follow the steps mentioned below.

    Boot tethered:

    Step 13: Launch Redsn0w again.

    Step 14: Click on Extras button.

    Step 15: Then click on the Select IPSW button. Navigate and select the firmware file downloaded in Step 2.

    Step 16: Then click on the Just Boot button.

    Step 17: You will now be prompted to plug your iOS device to the computer and switch it OFF again. Follow the instructions and click on the Next button to move to the next screen:

    Step 18: You will now need to put your iOS device into the DFU mode. Redsn0w will take you through the necessary steps:

    (a) Hold the Power button on your iOS device down for 3 seconds:

    (b) Now simultaneously hold the Home button and keep the two buttons pressed for 10 seconds:

    (c) Now release the Power button while keeping the Home button pressed until Redsn0w detects the device:

    Step 19: Redsn0w will recognize the iOS device in DFU mode and apply the limerain exploit (remember to release the Home button). Your iOS device will reboot and a pineapple logo will appear, indicating a tethered boot.

    Step 20: Wait for the process to complete, once it is complete, you should see the Lock screen on your iOS device.

    Thatís it, your iOS device has now been successfully jailbroken and you should see Cydia on the Home screen. If you donít find it on the Home screen, please donít panic, search for it using Spotlight.

    Note: Since Redsn0w currently supports only a tethered jailbreak except for iPhone 3GS with older bootrom, you will need to follow steps 13 to Steps 20, each time you reboot your iPhone or iPod touch to be able to use the jailbreak apps like Cydia.

    Please donít forget to checkout our article on tips to keep your iOS device secure.

    If youíre new to the jailbreaking world and wondering what to do after jailbreaking your iOS device, checkout our jailbreak apps category page to find out the apps you can install on your iOS device using the Cydia app.

    Hope this helped. Please donít forget to let us know how it goes in the comments and drop us a line if you hit any issues.

    Ok I only signed up here after copious amounts of googling "Jailbreaking iPhone4 iOS 6.1.3" and came across this thread.

    So my questions are: Is this legit, or just another scam for the wishful? Or does it actually work?

    Thanks

    Yes this trick is working great, but it is not untethered,

    It only works on the 3s and 4. because of the bootloader exploit.

    Thanks for the replies, I may give this a go later on.

    Just to confirm, the only difference between a tethered and untethered jailbreak is if I turn my phone off, I can only switch it back on by plugging it in and doing it through redsnow?

    Thanks

    Not completely true. You are still able to boot your phone up, but it'll be in the "standard" mode - you will not have cydia and you won't be able to open the jailbroken apps etc. When you boot up with redsn0w, you have the full jailbreak functionality.

    1) Download the IPSW
    2) Download the 6.1.2 SHSH using iFaith
    3) Use iFaithto stitch the SHSH blobs to the IPSW
    4) Restore with the new IPSW using redsn0w
