If you updated to iOS 6.0.1, I am sure that you will definitely want to start the jailbreak process as soon as possible. Unfortunately, some users already started jailbreak on their devices and they encountered a serious problem while jailbreaking iOS 6.0.1 using Redsnow. People encountered various problems during the process, but the most notable one is the Exploit Failed error. Apparently, this problem is due to the lack of compatibility of the jailbreak software, in this case Redsnow, with this latest iOS update. However, the only way in which users are able to fix Exploit Error during jailbreak, is to use the same program as for the jailbreak process. It is worth mentioning the fact that this software is meant only for A4-based devices such as iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th generation.
Before starting the process to fix the problem, you must take into consideration several aspects. First of all, you need to know for sure what the jailbreak process means and how it can be done. Secondly, another important aspect is the way in which you put your device in the DFU mode. This process is not that complicated, but some people might encounter problems when doing it. Apparently, this is the main cause of the exploit problem. In the last part, you need to run Redsnow as administrator.
Now, here is what you need to do to fix Exploit Failed error during jailbreak iOS 6.0.1:
1. Put your device in the DFU mode. This is not that complicated, but if you fail, you will still encounter the problem. For this, you need press the Lock Button for 3 seconds. The, you need to hold the Home Button and the Lock Button for 10 seconds at the same time. Release the Lock Button but keep on pressing the Home button for another 15 seconds.
You will see that something will appear on your screen when you reach 8 seconds. At this time, do not let the button go. This will lead you to the error as well. You must press the Home button until you see that the Uploading First Stage process is completed. This will finish the exploit process.
At this time, you are free to continue with the jailbreak process, as you know. It is not that complicated, but if you want to avoid the Exploit Failed issues, you need to be quite patient and careful.
