hello, i jailbreaked my i4 on iOS 6.0.1 tethered and i cannot restore it via iTunes. gives me the error code “3014” and when i boot “just tethered” in redsn0w it either says ” exploit failed ” or no plist.keys registered. i have also tried using the 6.0 firmware ( downloaded from felixbruns ) but it either says “exploit failed” or “missing plist.keys whatever.” it is very disturbing that i can’t use cydia ( doens’t even appear on my screen. ) i couldn’t care less for safari and mail though. please respong, for i am a noob in distress. keep PWNING guys, let’s see an untethered for 6.0.1 soon, eh? cheers! if it matters, my iPhone 4 is a GSM version and has 32GB of memory. baseband is 04. 12. 02. using atomic web browser as substitute. i trust you guys on this one.
