    Why are you trying to use redsn0w? Use 6.1.2 and evasi0n to jailbreak if that's what you want.

    When it comes to jailbreaking with redsn0w right now, they haven't upgraded the program to allow iphone 4s's to be jailbroken. So you will need to wait for this to come out. If you had the original sim you could easily activate the phone and use Evasi0n to jailbreak, but as you said you don't possess the sim. So what I would recommend you to do, is to wait for the jailbreak from redsn0w.
    And for the guys that recommeded using evasi0n to jailbreak, you guys have one flaw with that, if the iPhone isn't activated you cannot jailbreak.
    Just wait for the official redsn0w to be released for iPhone.

    Sorry wrong, I don't know for i4S, but on i4, those which are locked and working with Gevey, Redsnow is not only used for JB, but also for activation.

    If ur trying to jailbreak, you have to use evasi0n from evasi0n.com, not redsn0w. Redsn0w is only useful for tethered jailbreaks anymore.
