iPhone 4 on iOS 6.1.3

*Currently there is only a tethered jailbreak for 6.1.3.
*It is recommended to do a factory reset on the iPhone before doing anything else.
If you decide not to and have any issues you will need to restore with itunes and start over.

[+] Jailbreak the iPhone:

01 – Right click on extracted RedSn0w.exe file and choose “Run as Administrator” (Download Redsn0w)
02 – Click “Extras” button on RedSn0w screen
03 – Click “Select IPSW” button and select the iOS 6.0 firmware  file. Once RedSn0w recognizes the given firmware file click on “Back” button.   (Download 6.0 IPSW)
04 – Click on “Jailbreak” button, and follow the on screen instructions carefully to enter into DFU mode
06 – Select “Install Cydia” option and click Next button to initiate jailbreak process
07 – When RedSn0w completes the process, your iPhone will reboot into a non-jailbroken state, this is because of tethered jailbreak so you need to boot tethered through RedSn0w now.

**BOOT TETHERED**
08 – With the device plugged in to the PC, power it off by holding the power button and then slide to power off.
09 – From main screen of RedSn0w, click “Extras”.
10 – Click “Select IPSW” button and select the iOS 6.0 firmware file  (same as in step 3).
11 – Select “Just Boot” and follow the on-screen instructions to enter DFU mode. Redsn0w will now boot your phone into a jailbroken state..

[+] Flash the iPhone:

01 – With Cydia up and running, refresh its sources by going into the Changes tab and tapping Refresh, install any updates (there will be updates!). You will need to reboot with redsn0w using the “boot tethered” method after the updates finish.
02 – Go to  Cydia > Search > type in “OpenSSH” and install the package.
<start OPTIONAL STEPS>
03 – Get iPhone Toolbox!
04 – Connect and Install “Commcenter Patch 6.1.3″
05 – Install The carrier bundle of your choice and make any other mods that you want to. Disconnect from iPhone Toolbox and close iPhone toolbox.
*This will get you carrier logo, incoming/outgoing MMS and more. Cricket and nTelos bundles supports Facetime and iMessage.!
<end OPTIONAL STEPS>

07 – Connect phone to PC and choose “iPhone Flasher” from the ‘Tools” menu in Flashitnow software.

10 – Select your carrier from the drop down box.
11 – Enter your MDN, MIN, and SID.
12 – Click ‘Write’, wait for flash to complete, it will alert you with a pop up box.
13 – Click disconnect, the phone will reboot. You will need to do the ‘boot tethered” process with Redsn0w again.
14 – On the iPhone go to Settings –> General –> Auto-Lock and set it to “1 Minute”.

*IF YOU FLASHED TO CRICKET or NTELOS:
01 – Go to Settings -> Facetime and make sure Facetime is on.
02 – Go to settings -> Messages and make sure iMessage is on.
03 – Go to Settings -> General -> Cellular -> Personal Hotspot. — After Personal Hotspot has initiated for the first time the option should be available directly in settings right under the WiFi option.
*note: The ‘waiting to activate’ for facetime and imessage can take anywhere from 30 seconds to 15 minutes. iMessage normally takes longer than facetime.
**note: $60 or $70 plan may be required by cricket to utilize Wifi Tethering (personal hotspot).

Your iPhone is now fully flashed on iOS 6.1.3!

 

iPhone 4 on iOS 6.0 through 6.1.2

Have you already jailbroken with evasi0n?
If yes, search for “evasion untether” in cydia and uninstall the exploit. Use redsn0w to boot the phone tethered and then proceed to section (2).
Why? The exploits that evasi0n uses to create the untethered jailbreak destroy the process we need to use to connect to the phone and read/write the non-volatile memory items and load PRL via usb (flash the phone).

(1) Do a TETHERED Jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and THIS ipsw:

01 – Right click on extracted RedSn0w.exe file and choose “Run as Administrator”
02 – Click “Extras” button on RedSn0w screen
03 – Click “Select IPSW” button and select the iOS 6.0 firmware file  (Download Here) file. Once RedSn0w recognizes the given firmware file click on “Back” button
04 – Click on “Jailbreak” button, and follow the on screen instructions carefully to enter into DFU mode
05 – Once your iDevice entered into DFU mode, RedSn0w will start processing.
06 – Select “Install Cydia” option and click Next button to initiate jailbreak process
07 – When RedSn0w will complete the process, your iDevice will reboot into a non-jailbroken state, this is because of tethered jailbreak so you need to boot tethered through RedSn0w
08 – Now, again put your iDevice into DFU mode through RedSn0w
09 – From main screen of RedSn0w, click “Extras”   “Just Boot” for a tethered boot of your iDevice and thats it.
10 – Click “Select IPSW” button and select the iOS 6.0 firmware file  (same as in step 3) file
11 – Select “Just Boot” for a tethered boot of your iPhone

(2) Flash the iPhone:

01 – With Cydia up and running, refresh its sources by going into the Changes tab and tapping Refresh, install any updates.
02 – Go to  Cydia > Search > type in “OpenSSH” and install the package.
03 Go to  Cydia > take care of > Sources > Edit > Add and add source “cydia.appleflasher.com”
04 – set up “Commcenter Patch” from cydia.appleflasher repo (no reboot required)
05 – return to the packages listing and set up your carriers carrier bundle from apple flasher repo. We at present have bundles for Cricket and PagePlus.
06 – Connect phone to PC and choose “iPhone Flasher” from the ‘Tools” menu in Flashitnow software.
07 – Click the connect button.
08 – Wait for phone to fully connect  then hit the ‘read” button.
09 – Select your carrier from the drop down box.
10 – Enter your MDN, MIN, and SID.
11 – Click ‘Write’, wait for flash to complete, it will alert you with a pop up box.
12 – Click disconnect, the phone will reboot. You will need to do the ‘Just boot” process with Redsn0w again.

(3) Convert your Tethered Jailbreak to an UnTethered jailbreak with evasi0n in Cydia:

01 – The first thing you will need to do is launch Cydia.
02 – With Cydia up and running, refresh its sources by going into the Changes tab and tapping Refresh, install any updates.
03 – Once the sources have finished being refreshed you will need to go into the Search tab and search for:
evasi0n Untether
04 – Install the Evasi0n iOS 6.0-6.1 (actually works on 6.1.2) Untether package to your device and then reboot it normally by holding down the Power button until you see “Slide To Power Off” appear.
05 – Turn your device back on and after Evasi0n does its thing it should be up and running in an untethered state.
-OR-
Use the desktop version of evasi0n found HERE.
Note: When evasion tries to reboot the iPhone for the first time you will need to push the reboot by putting the iPhone in DFU mode and doing a ‘just boot’ with redsn0w.

IF YOU FLASHED TO CRICKET:
01 – Go to Settings -> Facetime and make sure Facetime is on.
02 – Go to settings -> Messages and make sure iMessage is on.
03 – Go to Settings -> General -> Cellular -> Personal Hotspot. — After Personal Hotspot has initiated for the first time the option should be available directly in settings right under the WiFi option.
