iOS 6 Beta Jailbreak Released: No Cydia Yet

The iOS 6 beta is less than a week old, but the iPhone Dev-Team has already released a functioning iOS 6 beta jailbreak.

As with any jailbreak, there are a few catches.

The iOS 6 beta jailbreak is an untethered jailbreak which means users will need to plug-in anytime their device restarts. The jailbreak is also only good on A4 powered devices like the iPhone 4, the iPhone 3GS and the iPod Touch 4th generation.

As MucsleNerd and Jailbreak-Untethered warn, casual jailbreak users should stay far away from this jailbreak. There is no support for Cydia, so regular jailbreakers won’t be able to install their favorite apps and tweaks.

This iOS 6 beta jailbreak is only intended for developers, just like the iOS 6 beta. Anyone using an unlocked iPhone should not upgrade to the beta to try this.

    You should list that redsn0w will not jailbreak ios6 for iphone 4. Its not currently supported.

    “The iOS 6 beta jailbreak is an untethered jailbreak which means users will need to plug-in anytime their device restarts.” – WRONG

    Tethered = The need to plug into computer to restart phone
    Untethered = Phone can be rebooted and not lose jailbreak

    Please correct your conflicting statement.

    iOS 6 jailbreak does work on Iphone 4 using redsn0w dev2. I’ve jailbroke and then downgraded then back to 6 without issue except apps request my apple I’d and I enter and it just keeps asking over and over without accepting. Other then that ssh works

    Thanks , I’ve just been searching for information about this subject for a while and yours is the greatest I have found out so far. However, what about the conclusion? Are you sure about the source?|What i do not understood is in reality how you’re now not actually a lot more smartly-appreciated than you may be right now. You are very intelligent.
