    Default Redsn0w 0.9.13dev1 Will Jailbreak iOS 6 (Tethered)


    It has been emphasized over and over that only developers should be installing iOS 6 beta. Well, the same logic comes around with jailbreaking iOS 6 beta. According to the iPhone Dev Team Blog, redsn0w 0.9.13dev1 has been released with the ability to jailbreak iOS 6 beta TETHERED. The jailbreak will also only work on the iPhone 4 (CDMA or GSM), iPhone 3GS, or iPod touch 4G. There are a lot of considerations for the jailbreak, including the following:
    • If you rely on an unlock, you should not perform this jailbreak.
    • The jailbreak is intended only for developers of jailbroken applications.
    • This updated, developer-only version of redsn0w does not install Cydia on your iOS device.
    • You cannot use redsn0w to hactivate iOS 6 beta.
    • You will be tethered, meaning you will have to reboot your device with redsn0w and a computer each time it turns off.

    You must be wondering, “Well if it doesn’t install Cydia on my device, then what good is it?” As aforementioned, the tethered jailbreak is only for developers and developers understand the process of using SSH protocol to move files to and from the iOS device. This is also called installing things manually without a graphical user interface to aid you through the process of installing things (AKA Cydia). This jailbreak will allow the user to browse through the filesystem of iOS 6 beta. Cydia is not yet ready for iOS 6 and neither are most jailbreak tweaks.

    The jailbreak is limited to the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 4G because it relies on geohot’s limera1n exploit. This exploit is a bootrom exploit and it is not available on A5/A5X devices such as the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and the new iPad. Since the bootrom exploit cannot be patched by Apple, it is a nearly foolproof way of jailbreaking these A4 and older devices with each new software release. This does come with the prerequisite that it will be tethered until additional exploits are found.

    Since the new redsn0w release does not hactivate iOS 6 beta, you will not be able to bypass the activation screen without a registered developer UDID. There is absolutely no reason for a non-developer to have iOS 6 beta on their device. It is illegal to pirate the iOS 6 beta software or to distribute it without the sole permission of Apple – all developers will have access to the iOS 6 beta legitimately from Apple’s developer section of their Web site.

    If you are a developer and have iOS 6 beta installed, you can try out this jailbreak to get your applications up to date and ready for iOS 6 when it is finally released this fall.

    Exactly. This is for developers only! It does not come with Cydia at all. But this gives the developers a chance to prep for 6.0 down the road now so the tweaks will work when user versions is released.

    Got it to work, most tweaks/apps don't work yet so it's (obviously) pointless for most people.

    So far that work: BytaFont, Barrel, Winterboard
