Yesterday, we told you that the iPhone Dev-Team had released a new version of redsn0w (“redsn0w 0.9.13dev1″) that had the capacity to jailbreak an iOS 6-powered iDevice. Below, we’ll take you through the jailbreak process, explaining how users can “liberate” their iDevice under iOS 6 beta 1.
But before we start, a word of warning: as the iPhone Dev-Team has noted, this release of redsn0w is intended for jailbreak developers only – i.e., if you wish to get your jailbreak apps and tweaks ready for iOS 6. If you’re not a jailbreak dev, avoid jailbreaking under iOS 6 – at least for now – because the Dev-Team has explicitly warned non-devs against using this version of redsn0w.
Furthermore, users should be aware that this jailbreak does not install Cydia, it doesn’t “hacktivate” users iDevices, and above all, it should be avoided by unlockers. Alright, now we’ve got that over with, let’s talk about jailbreaking under iOS 6 beta 1.
First up, compatibility. As mentioned yesterday, this version of redsn0w is compatible with the below iDevices only:
- iPod touch 4G
- iPhone4 (GSM)
- iPhone4 (CDMA)
If your iDevice isn’t listed above, it’s the end of the jailbreak-road for you.
Next, your iOS 6-powered iDevice needs to have its UDID registered with a developer account. This should be the case if you’re already running Apple’s prerelease software, which is available only to registered developers. But if your UDID isn’t hooked-up accordingly, do not proceed.
Now, on to the jailbreak process:
1 – Download redsn0w 0.9.13dev1 from the iPhone Dev-Team – we’ve pasted the appropriate links below:
2 – Next, open the software, click “Extras,” “Select IPSW,” and then select the iOS 6 firmware you’ve installed on your iDevice.
3 – Click “Back,” and then “Jailbreak” – place your iDevice in DFU mode, and upon doing this, the jailbreak process should begin. Make sure you “Install SSH” when prompted, and continue with the process.
4 – Once your Home screen appears, in redsn0w click “Extras” again, and this time select “Just Boot.” This will perform a tethered boot, and you’ll have to put your iDevice in DFU mode once more.
5 – That’s it, the process should be completed: once your iDevice’s Home screen appears, you should be able to use SSH and more in order to place the apps and tweaks you’ve developed onto your iDevice.
Remember, all the information you need is available from the iPhone Dev-Team’s website. Good luck!
