    I downloaded the firmware from here, iTunes still showing error when choosing that file. So just updated via iTunes, member of evasi0n suggested there was no difference in method, now on 6.1 - Thanks!

    Hope they can find a way to restore to 6.1 if it messes up coz at the moment we only have 1 chance on it. (Because apple will patch it pretty soon).

    I tried putting my phone in DFU mode and updating with iOS 6.1 IPSW, but I kept getting error code 1601 and 1602. I then tried updating through iTunes and got error code 21. Now I just see a picture of a USB and the iTunes logo on my 4S. Cannot get out of DFU. Tried holding home/power for 5 seconds and releasing power while holding home for 10 more sec....didn't work. Tried holding home/power to do a soft reset....didn't work. What else can I try?!?! fixed w/tiny umbrella...whew

    I think you need to point your hosts file to Apple instead of Cydia.

    I'm not 100% on that, Simon will know for sure.

    Your right its in ya host files ya need to fix
    the HOSTS file is located here:
    C drive -> System32 -> drivers -> etc

    open up the HOSTS file with notepad (run notepad as an administrator)

    then check to see if the file has the hosts entry "74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com", if it is, delete it, save the file

    1601 isn't a host file error. Normally when you get this error try a different USB port or cord or even another computer if you can. 16XX errors can be a pain. 1394 is the hosts file error.

    Best to jailbreak first, run cydia once. Then you can restore your backup if you want.

    Update for evasi0n 0.1-1 is live in Cydia. It converts your tethered 6.x JB to untethered.

Just Saying.
    I have not used Cydia in a long time, but with the new JB I downloaded SBS settings and LivePapers (so cool). I was unaware of the iCleaner until I read your post. Wow! it works great. everything runs smoother and a little faster on my iPod Touch. Thanks again.

    July 2013. Apple is no longer signing 6.1.2. I have a FU iPhone 4s (Jailbroken, 6.1.2) that mysteriously went into recovery mode while plugged into my MacBook. Is it true that I cannot restore it to 6.1.2? I thought I had valid SHSH blobs (saved from TU) but I get a 1600 error when I try to install a local 6.1.2 IPSW. I have no idea why it would go into recovery mode: no hacked apps, everything on the phone is legit, paid for, and kosher ;-)

    Are my only solutions to 1) restore to 6.1.3 (no option-restore) and wait for a jailbreakable iOS 7 in the fall or 2) restore it, sell it and try to buy a 4s with 6.1.2 on it so I can jailbreak with evasi0n?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi all,

    I have been jailbreaking from the first iphone but have been a bit rusty lately.

    I have bought a new Ipad 4 and luckily it has IOS 6.0.1.

    Now, do i just use this evasion tool to JB or is it sort of out of date now for this firmware?

    There is no way i can upgrade to 6.2.1 is there so my only hope is jailbreaking 6.0.1.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    I am keeping my fingers crossed - they need to figure out a way to restore 6.1 if it screws up since apple will lock it down soon enough.
