3. After selecting all the preference, run redsnow in your device and click on Extras. After that, click on select IPSW and direct redsnow to IPSW 6.0 and not to iOS 6.1.3 IPSW. The firmware then gets identified and the process of jailbreaking starts, which should be followed by going back to the redsnow main menu.

4. After going to the main menu, click on the Jailbreak option. A pop up will ask you to turn off your device in order to enter the DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode, though it always isn’t necessary because this stage can easily be bypassed.

5. In order to enter the DFU mode, connect your device via a 30 pin USB cable, and hold the home and power buttons together for a total of 10 seconds. After the time has lapsed, again keep the home button pressed for another 10 seconds or 15 seconds.

6. Once you have entered the DFU mode properly and correctly, your device will automatically be jail broken and you would be asked to reboot your phone at the same time after the whole process is complete. Also, make sure that you know and learn how to update the firmware on your iOS device with proper unlock.


Just by following the aforementioned steps, which are pretty simple and feasible to follow, you can successfully jailbreak your device running the iOS 6.1.3, which should be followed by tethered booting. The following links can be referred for the same process.
