iOS 6.0.1 is jailbroken, but only for older devices [How to]

iOS 6.0.1 came out today, and, it’s already jailbroken. That’s right, the folks over at iDownloadBlog took it upon themselves to test out the older iOS 6 jailbreak method and confirm that it does indeed work. However, this only supports the devices that were supported with iOS 6, which are the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 4th generation. Also, this is tethered, so proceed with caution. Below are the steps to follow if you feel you wish to go ahead and dive on in.

Step 1: Get Redsn0w from the Dev Team Website

Step 2: Connecting your device to your computer, put it in DFU mode.

Step 3: Open Redsn0w, click Extras > Select IPSW, and find the iOS 6 IPSW for your device.

Step 4: Go to the main Redsn0w page and continue the jailbreak as you normally would, making sure Cydia is checked to install. Don’t close Redsn0w.

Step 5: Once completed and your device is on, place your device back in DFU mode.

Step 6: Perform a normal “Thethered Boot.”

After completing those steps, you should be done with Cydia on your home screen.

What do you think? Are you going to jailbreak your device? Waiting for the untethered? Let us know in the comments.
