iOS 6.1.3 Jailbreak Tethered With Redsn0w [How to Guide]

Here you can find the guide on how to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 using Redsn0w tool from iPhone Dev team. But remember that this jailbreak is tethered so you will need to connect your device to the computer everytime your device will reboot or discharge. 

Note: Before following this tutorial your iPhone or iPod Touch should be running iOS 6.1.3.

Step 1: Download Redsn0w tool and then iOS 6 firmware. Links for Redsn0w are here below:

Download RedSn0w 0.9.15b3 (Windows)
Download RedSn0w 0.9.15b3 (Mac OS X)

Step 2: Once you have downloaded RedSn0w 0.9.15b3 you will need to extract it. On Mac OS X this should be done automatically, but one Windows you can do this by right clicking on the zip file and then clicking the extract to folder option.

On Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and above you will need to hold down the control button on your keyboard, click the RedSn0w app and then the Open option to get past Gatekeeper.

  • Hold down Power (corner) button for 5 seconds.

Step 7: RedSn0w will now begin jailbreaking your iPhone or iPod Touch. DO NOT interrupt or use the computer during this time. When the iOS device is finished being jailbroken it will reboot into a non-Jailbroken state (or in some cases will not make it past the Apple logo). This is because you have a tethered Jailbreak and will need to boot it using RedSn0w.

Step 8: Launch RedSn0w again if you exited out of it, click the Extras button, click the Select IPSW button, browse for your device’s iOS 6 firmware again and then click the Just Boot button. You will now need to put the iPhone or iPod Touch into DFU mode again. Once your iOS device is in DFU mode it will boot into a Jailbroken state.

Note: Remember that you will need to repeat Step 8 every time your iPhone or iPod Touch loses power.
As you tricked RedSn0w into thinking you were running iOS 6, while you were actually running iOS 6.1.3, your iPhone or iPod Touch is now Jailbroken tethered on iOS 6.1.3. If you have any further questions let us know in the comments section below.
