A high number of users complained about various problems they encounter whenever they wanted to update iOS 6 on A4-based devices while preserving the baseband. For this process, Redsn0w, the famous jailbreak tool is required. For those of you who still do not know, the baseband is the possibility to use your device on particular carriers. So, if you want to upgrade your device to iOS 6, you need to preserve your baseband if you want to be able to use your device with other carriers. As I mentioned earlier, people use Redsnow 0.9.15b1 to start this process. And now, here we are in front of the problem. Some people suggested that the program is causing them problems and each time they start the update, the error 2601 appears preventing them to finish the process. More precisely, the error appears when the user checks the file system by using the Redsnow 0.9.15b1.
Fortunately, developers already prepared a new Redsnow version that deals with this problem. It is supposed to fix all errors and bugs encountered by users. In the same time, the version offers full support for Windows and for Mac. If you want to get rid of this problem, here is what you need to do:
- Download Redsnow 0.9.15b3 for Mac or for Windows.
- Install the program on your computer and plug in your device.
- Once you put your device in the DFU mode, you can search for the file system and continue with the update by using the new version of Redsnow 0.9.15b3.
According to developers, Redsn0w was updated to 0.9.15b3 firmware in order to fix the error 2601 encountered when users tried to upgrade their devices. In the same time, it fixes the Windows iTunes error for stitched files. However, for those who want to conserve their baseband, the stitching feature should not be taken into consideration.
