As I’m sure many of you are aware, the 3rd beta of iOS 6 was pushed to developers’ devices yesterday. Well, if you are one of the non-developers that have iOS 6, and you like to jailbreak it, you can now update to beta 3 with a jailbreak (however, it was just recently learned that the Cydia installation method via SSH is not currently working for everyone, so beware). The folks over at iDownloadBlog have, as usual, put together an easy to follow step-by-step guide on how to jailbreak iOS 6 beta 3. Here’s the simple 6 step guide:
Step 1: Download and run RedSn0w 0.9.13dev3.
Step 2: Place your device into DFU mode.
Step 3: In RedSn0w click Extras > Select IPSW and point to your iOS 6 beta 3 firmware. RedSn0w should display a message stating that the firmware was successfully identified.
Step 4: Go back to the main page of RedSn0w and click jailbreak. Once preliminary configuration is complete, ensure Install SSH is selected, and continue. The jailbreak process should finish to completion.
Step 5: Once back to the Home screen on your device, place the device back into DFU mode, and perform Step 3 again.
Step 6: Click Just boot under the Extras menu subset, and RedSn0w will perform a tethered boot on your device.
As you can see, it’s similar, and for some the exact same, method as earlier jailbreaks. Just make sure if you are going to proceed with this, you get the newest RedSn0w, or it will not work. Also, this jailbreak is still being treated as a developer-only version. Not much (if any) support is given. This is still only supported on the devices supported by the previous iOS 6 jailbreaks, which include the A4 devices and the 3GS.
What do you think? Do you jailbreak iOS 6 on your device? Are you waiting for the official release and untethered jailbreak? Let us know in the comments.
