STEP 5: Click Extras > Select IPSW > and select the iOS 6.0 IPSW that we have already mentioned in step 2. Also make this sure that that RedSn0w has successfully identified the iOS 6.0 firmware.

STEP 7: Now your device will come back to Lock screen, place it back into DFU mode again. You will receive a Tethered Jailbreak notification, click OK to proceed and again click Select IPSW.
STEP 8: Once again select the iOS 6.0 firmware for your device. As it successfully identifies the firmware, click Just boot.
STEP 9: While booting your iPhone, iPod touch should show the Pwned Apple logo. If it does, it means you have followed the steps correctly.
