Last week, we reported that the latest RedSn0w 0.9.13dev1 could jailbreak iOS 6 Beta. Now we will show you how the popular jailbreak tweak can do that.
This jailbreak is aimed at developers only. Thus, the process and the results are a tad bit different that normal.
If you are a developer, and you have an iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, or 4th Generation iPod Touch running iOS 6 beta, then you can follow the procedure shown in the video to jailbreak your device. Before you start, we would like to remind you that this is procedure has been tried and tested but if you fail to achieve desirable results and if something goes wrong, then The Apple Bites would not be responsible for the problem. You are doing this at your own risk.
Now that you have seen the video, we will explain the procedure step-by-step. Again, this procedure will not install Cydia on your device. Nor it will hacktivate it. It has been suggested that unlockers who want to preserve the baseband, should refrain from using this jailbreak. This procedure works only with iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and 4th Generation iPod Touch. A5 Devices are useless. Lastly, this is a tethered jailbreak.
Now we move on with the explanation of procedure:
STEP 1 – Download and open RedSn0w 0.9.13dev1.
STEP 2 – Click Extras > Select IPSW, and point to your iOS 6 firmware file for your device.
STEP 3 – Click back and Click jailbreak. Place your device into Device Firmware Update (DFU) mode, and the jailbreak should begin. RedSn0w will prompt you to Install SSH. You should make sure that option is checked. Then, click Next. the jailbreak will proceed until completion.
STEP 4 – Once on your Home screen, go back to RedSn0w and click Extras > Just boot. This will perform a tethered boot. After that, you will need to place your device into DFU mode again to proceed.
STEP 5 – Once the tethered boot is completed, your device will go back to your Home screen.
Now your device is jailbroken. You can now use SSH, or another iPhone file navigation utility to browse the default file structure. This may allow you to install apps and tweaks manually if needed.
However, this is for advanced users only, as no Graphical User Interface (GUI) interface is there to help you through this process.
So have you successfully jailbroken iOS 6 on your device yet? Did you achieve desired results with this jailbreak? Post your comments.
