Tethered Jailbreak iOS 6 Beta Released For Developers

It has been 2 days to iOS 6 release and iPhone hackers are already at work to get jailbreak for iOS 6 beta and final release. Though thanks to limera1n exploit all A4 devices are jailbreaked for life but in order to jailbraeak your iOS device running iOS 6 beta you need to wait for iPhone Dev team to update their tools to support iOS 6 beta jailbreak.

Musclenerd, a member of iPhone Dev team had tweeted about partial success in getting jailbreak for iOS 6 beta. The good news is here, iPhone Dev team will be releasing iOS 6 tethered jailbreak for iOS 6 beta with only SSH support and no Cydia.

In the spirit of the "experimental ecosystem" JBers provide, we're releasing a DEVELOPER-only tethered JB for iOS6 (no Cydia, just SSH)

So if you are the one who looking for Cydia and tweaks to install on iOS 6 beta then this is not for you. The primary reason of releasing such partial jailbreak without Cydia is to support experimental ecosystem, to help jailbreak tweaks devs to update their tweaks and make it compatible with upcoming iOS 6.

Here is blog post from iPhone Dev Team

Just like at the at the wind-down of last year’s WWDC, we’re releasing a developer-only version of a redsn0w tethered jailbreak for app developers.  The following limera1n-able devices are supported:

  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPhone4 (CDMA)

UNLOCKERS AND THOSE PRESERVING THEIR UNLOCKABLE BASEBANDS SHOULD STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS!  You will very likely lose your unlockable baseband if you try to install iOS 6.

THIS JAILBREAK IS INTENDED ONLY FOR DEVELOPERS OF JAILBROKEN APPS!  There are just too many broken components (Apple’s official apps, 3rd-party App Store apps, Cydia apps, etc) for this to be useful to anyone but those truly looking to fix bugs in their iOS 6 jailbroken apps.

CYDIA WILL NOT BE INSTALLED because it just hasn’t had time to be updated to the new SDK.  The only access you’ll get to the device is through SSH or afc2.  If you don’t know what either of those are, you shouldn’t be using this developer version of redsn0w!

THIS REDSN0W WILL NOT HACTIVATE!  You need to be an iOS developer with a registered UDID to get past the activation screens.  PLEASE DON’T PIRATE APPLE SOFTWARE!  Only registered devs with Macs can develop iOS applications,and only those people will have legitimate access to the beta IPSWs.

THIS IS A TETHERED JAILBREAK ONLY!  No new exploits are being exposed with this jailbreak (it uses geohot’s limera1n bootrom exploit), but that comes at a cost.  You will need to use redsn0w to “Just boot”  button to be able to use many things, including Cydia and Safari.  If you see a white icon for Cydia, or if Cydia or Safari crash when you open them, it’s because you didn’t boot tethered.

You must point redsn0w at your IPSW the first time you “Jailbreak” and “Just boot” tethered because that IPSW is only available to developers, and redsn0w can’t automatically fetch the pieces it needs from it.

The Redsn0w tool with iOS 6 beta tethered jailbreak support is not yet available for download but we will update this post as soon as tool to jailbreak iOS 6 beta is made available along with guide on how to jailbreak your iPhone/IPod Touch/iPad on iOS 6 Beta.

Download Redsn0w 0.9.13dev1 for Windows and Mac.
