These are instructions on how to perform a jailbreak of your iPhone 3GS on iOS 6 using RedSn0w for Windows.

This jailbreak is untethered for old bootrom devices; however, new bootrom devices are tethered. A tethered jailbreak means you will need to connect your device to the computer each time you reboot.

Step One
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage

Download the latest version of RedSn0w from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. Likewise, download the 6.0 firmware from here and place it in the Pwnage folder. (Note: you do not need to download the 6.0 firmware if you are already on iOS 6.0)

Extract the RedSn0w zip file to the Pwnage folder.

The actual process of jail-breaking an iOS device is no longer as challenging a task as it used to be as long as you know what tools are to be used and you follow the steps correctly. If you are a user of iPhone 3gs, iPhone 4 or iPhone 4s and have upgraded your device to iOS 6, then you can read this easy guide to perform an untethered jailbreak on your iPhone. http://radharenu.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Jailbreak-iPhone-3gs-or-iOS-6-devices
