iPhone Dev-Team Releases Jailbreak of iOS 6 for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod 4G

Posted June 14, 2012 at 12:54pm by iClarified
The iPhone Dev-Team has released a tethered jailbreak of iOS 6 for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPod touch 4G.

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.

Supported Devices:
● 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 can download the latest version of RedSn0w from here. Please note that you must point RedSn0w to your IPSW manually to jailbreak.

isnt that a chance for apple to resolve this jb bug before releasing the final ios6 to public?

This JB can (and has been) only be fixed by new hardware. That is why the newer devices (4S, etc.) are not and will never be supported. This is only a tethered JB, a thing that might be ok for developers, but might not be so nice for end users who have to reboot their device on the road.

I also had trouble to install ios6 but..... If you you use FIREFOX it will install for some reason if you use just window xp or 7 it is not compatible. And just to add this is the best upgrade yet as it puts it iphone in a super fast speed

If you're using above guy's mom (no win7 or mac os or whateva),you're gonna get a unthethered jb!

You do it by clicking the "Do you want to upgrade now?" button that appears when you plug your device in. Or you leave the automatic update feature turned on. It's not that hard to do. Besides, iOS 6 won't "erase your data" (assuming you have iCloud or back up your data). Besides that, there are now several services to back up your Cydia apps and settings as well.
Thunderbyte - June 14, 2012 at 6:56pm
You can only upgrade to iOS6 beta with a developer key. So there is NO accidential upgrade possible at all and no "do you want to upgrade" button. Apart from that, there has NEVER been an automatic upgrade function in iTunes or iOS. But you would know that, if you knew your iOS.
CHEESEWHIZ - June 15, 2012 at 7:13pm
Even if you "accidentally" hit the upgrade button it still gives you a warning/TOS agreement and it has to download the new firmware. Plus iTunes backs up your shit, extracts the firmware, and prepares your iPhone for upgrade. 10-15 mins to realize that you hit the upgrade button. PLENTY of time to unplug your cable from your iPhone and avoid "accidentally" upgrading.
