Installing Cydia On iOS 6 Beta [TUTORIAL]

Cydia in iOS 6

Last week a tethered jailbreak was released for iOS 6 running on the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and 4th Generation iPod Touch.


However, the jailbreak did not include any Graphical User Interface (GUI) tools like Cydia. Only SSH and afc2 support were added.

Fortunately, now that SSH access is possible, we can transfer and install pretty much anything on our jailbroken iOS 6 devices, including Cydia.

Following video shows you how to install Cydia on iOS 6 beta:

Now that you have seen the video, we will explain the procedure of installing Cydia, step-by-step. This procedure has been tried and tested. However, due to some unknown reason, if you do not get results that you desire, then The Apple Bites would not be responsible for that. You are doing this at your own risk.

STEP 1 – First of all, you should jailbreak, and boot tethered your iOS 6 device.

STEP 2 – SSH into your device (you must be on a local WiFi network). Tools like Coda work well on Mac and tools like Putty work well on Windows. SSH username = “root” SSH password = “alpine”.

STEP 3 – Execute the following command via SSH (copy and paste): wget -q -O /tmp/ && chmod 755 /tmp/ && /tmp/

STEP 4 – Your device will respring. Now, Cydia should appear on your Home screen. Open Cydia, and it will begin Preparing Filesystem. It will then respring.

STEP 5 – Now you can use Cydia and start installing apps and tweaks via Cydia. However, you should remember that most apps and tweaks have not been updated with iOS 6 in mind. Thus, your mileage may vary as far as compatibility is concerned. You should proceed at your own risk.

Were you able to successfully install Cydia on your iOS 6 device by following this procedure? Post your comments.
