Jailbreak iOS 6 Redsnow
As you might already be aware that currently there is no official jailbreak for iDevices on iOS 6 and it does not seem we are going to get one soon. But there is a way to jailbreak iOS 6 for your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This guide basically uses the redsnow version which was initially intended for developers, that is redsnow 0.9.13dev 4. So let’s take a look on how to jailbreak iOS 6.
- Before we begin let me remind you that this jailbreak guide for iOS 6 is a tethered one, which means every time you reboot your device, you will need to do a “Just boot” via redsnow.
- If you rely on unlocking your iPhone then I would suggest you not to update to iOS 6 unless you have SAM activation tickets.
- Not all jailbreak tweaks are compatible with iOS 6
