The first thing you need is to make sure you have the right stuff.
this is the untethered jailbreak.note: I did not come up with this way on my own, I used describing posixspwn.enjoy!
Once redsn0w and the firmware are downloaded, drag both to the desktop for easy access. Now since I already jailbroke my i Pod I can't show you picture of a few steps, so I will do my best to describe them. click OK then QUITWARNING: JAILBREAKING WILL TAKE SOME TIME. You will switch to unteathed in a start off...launch redsn0w again on your computer and keep your i Pod connected. select i Pod4,1_6.0_10A403_again, but this time go to just boot.
But, given Apple's previous history with server overloads and millions of people downloading the update at the same time, it's always more reliable to update via i Tunes.
If you are jailbroken, you'll have suck it up and say goodbye.
Go to (again, i did not find this link on my own) and click on version Redsn0w 0.9.15 beta 3. Fill the next slot with your i Pod model(or i Pad, or i Phone). YOU MUST PUT IN IOS 6.0.0 NO MATTER WHAT IOS VERSION YOU ACTULY HAVE. navigate to i Pod4,1_6.0_10A403_(this is the firmware you just downloaded).
click on your computer type(windows, mac) and you will be brought to the download page. When this is done, click the download button and wait. it looks like a white lego block with a music note on one side and an i Pod on the other. Click OK and go back to the main page and click jailbreak. you will eventually be told to put your divice into DFU mode.(device firmware upgrade) To do this follow the instructions1-Hold the Power button on your i OS device down for 3 seconds:2- Now simultaneously hold the Home button and keep the two buttons pressed for 10 seconds: 3- Now release the Power button while keeping the Home button pressed until Redsn0w detects the device:your i Device should reboot now REMEMBER TO RELEASE THE HOME BUTTONyou will be notified when the process is complete.
