How to Jailbreak iPad 4 and Mini iOS 6.0.1 with Redsn0w
Step 1: First of all Launch Redsn0w, click “Extras”, then “Select IPSW”, and choose the iOS 6.0 IPSW file which you just downloaded, then move back to the main Redsn0w screen and choose “Jailbreak”.
Step 2: Then you have to follow on screen instructions to enter in DFU mode by holding the Power button for 3 seconds, then while holding Power also hold the Home button for 5 seconds, finally release Power button but hold home button for another 15 seconds, Redsn0w will notify you when DFU will be successful.
Step 3: After that you be sure to check auto boot in Redsn0w to automatically boot the device tethered upon restart, if you missed that step go to the primary redsn0w window and select “Extras” followed by “Just Boot” to boot tethered.
Step 4: At last when iOS reboots you should find Cydia on the home screen, which signify that jailbreak was successful. If you don’t see it or it doesn’t launch, you probably didn’t boot tethered, which is essential.
