    Now, I'm new to this and want to jailbreak my iphone 3gs. I'll be going to the middle of nowhere and need my phone to act as a mobile hotspot for internet. I learned jailbreaking could do this. Many sites tell me to download redsn0w or evasi0n but when I download and try to active them, I get the message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access this file". I dont know what to do past this. Is this problem common? I cant find anyone online with the same trouble.

    Edit: It's a iphone 3gs with 6.1.3

    But it doesnt work. They wont activate for me on my computer.


    EDIT: Would a mobile hotspot using the phone work with a place with a regular signal instead of a 3g one?

    Redsnow isnt accepted. "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access this file"
