The new untethered jailbreak for 6.0.1 is simply using the RedsnOw for jailbreaking. You can use this for your 3S iPhone, but it will be tethered and not the highly anticipated untethered version.
The features of the new untethered jailbreak for 6.0.1
If you are wondering about what is the reason of so much anticipation and excitement regarding this jailbreak, then you should first understand the meaning of this term clearly. In jailbreak, two types of methods are used. One is the tethered, and the other is the untethered. In the tethered version, whenever you restart your devise, or reboot it, you will need the assistance of a computer for running the features after the process of Jailbreak efficiently.
While, in the case of untethered version, you are free to reboot or restart your device whenever you feel like it. The new untethered jailbreak for 6.0.1 will give you freedom from dependence on the computer forever. Technically speaking most of the developers and mobile lovers would love to use the untethered version, but till now the tethered version is most popularly used.
The working principle of RedsnOw
RedsnOw uses the version that was created by Gehot and works on the exploits of Limra1n. This version is so versatile that any new untethered jailbreak for 6.0.1 can be quickly updated by using this firmware. The only glitch in this is that as it is hardware based, the mobile company is using this as a patch in only the latest devices, and not in most of the older devices. Now the developers of the company are using iOS to break the devise, which they are calling as, “failbreak”.
