Step 6: Click Next. You will now be presented a couple of options. Check Install Cydia then click Next. You can also select any of the additional options given here.
Step 7: It is crucial that you make sure the device is both powered OFF as well as PLUGGED IN. Once you’ve made sure of that, click Next.
Step 8: Redsn0w will now present instructions on how to put your device in DFU mode. Simply follow the onscreen instructions to put your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch in DFU mode.
First, hold the Power button for 3 seconds. Then without releasing the Power button, press and hold the Home button for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, release the Power button but keep on holding the Home button for about 15 seconds. Your device will now enter DFU mode.
Step 9: Wait for Redsn0w to work its magic. From this point onwards, you don’t need to do anything.
