Earlier today, the iPhone Dev Team released RedSn0w 0.9.13dev1 to jailbreak the iOS 6 beta on certain iOS devices. Because this jailbreak is obviously aimed at developers only, the process and the results are a tad bit different that normal.

If you’re a developer, and you have an iPhone 4, 3GS, or iPod touch 4th generation running iOS 6 beta, then step inside as we showcase how to jailbreak with this development version of RedSn0w.

Note: This is aimed at developers only. Again, this will not install Cydia on your device, will not hacktivate, and it’s suggested that unlockers who want to preserve the baseband, stay away. This only works with iPhone 4, 3GS, and iPod touch 4th gen. No A5 Devices. This is a tethered jailbreak.

Step 1: Download and open RedSn0w 0.9.13dev1.

Step 2: Click Extras > Select IPSW, and point to your iOS 6 firmware file for your device.

Step 3: Click back and Click jailbreak. Place your device into DFU mode, and the jailbreak should begin. RedSn0w will prompt you to Install SSH. Make sure that option is checked, and click Next. the jailbreak will proceed until completion.

Step 4: Once on your Home screen, go back to RedSn0w and click Extras > Just boot. This will perform a tethered boot. You will need to place your device into DFU mode again to proceed.

Step 5: Once the tethered boot is completed, your device will go back to your Home screen. Congratulations, your device is now jailbroken. You can now use SSH, or another iPhone file navigation utility to browse the default file structure. This may allow you to install apps and tweaks manually if need be. Again, this is for advanced users only, as no GUI interface is there to help you through this process.

Have you successfully jailbroken iOS 6 on your device yet?

  • Hey!! what ssh client have you used in the video..????

  • thanks for the info …. thanks a  lot jeff .

  • how can I install Cydia-progs with ssh?

    • LUFC_MOT

      If you don’t know how to do that you clearly shouldn’t be installing the beta … It’s obvious you aren’t a dev or you would know how to install via ssh.

      • I know how to install but I don’y know the commands can anyone tell me them please??

      • Downgrade to 5.1.1 and jailbreak and STAY THERE. If you don’t know dpkg commands you are NOT a developer

      • I’m not a developer but I will try out ios 6! but I would only jailbreak it if anyone would tell me how to install them through terminal!

      • Aleksander Azizi

        Some people..

      • ReanimationXP

        You two really need to shut the hell up. Let the n00bs do what they want. What the hell do you care?

      • Why do you seem to care so much about us caring?

      • RawX

        because your all pricks how the fuck did you become a dev? hmnmm? stealing info and dev apps? thought so so shut the hell up already fuck…

      • exactly

  • This is not worth the hassle it could cause you if you DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING..If you have iOS 6 beta good for you ..but leave it at that.. If you want to jailbreak downgrade back to 5.1.1 it’s user friendly .. And yes A5 devices can downgrade back ..

    • ZiiG

      Some people are developers, and would like to start making they’re tweaks work on iOS 6. That’s why it says “Developers Only”. Not worth th hassle for a standard user???…ugh.DUH!

      • Did you read the comment below mine ?

  • Jeff, you should delete this Post! You just motivate n00bs to Jailbreak on iOS 6 beta (and actually pirate the IPSW).
    A Developer doesn’t need this “How-to”

    • RyanStOnge

      He clearly stated this wasn’t for non-developers. And a developer may not need this how to, but maybe a developer didn’t know a jailbreak was released and where to download it at. 

      • I said he motivates n00bs to jailbreak and pirate, I didn’t say that he didn’t tell that this is not for non-developers.

        There was already an article stating the release.

      • i’m not a developer but i like just playing around with my idevices so i jailbroke my ipt4g and installed ifile using Putty on windows

      • Did you already notice that App Store apps don’t work in some cases? e.g. a Update is available? If not, you will soon. Go back to 5.1.1…

        And just btw: This is what I mentioned in my first comment, people who are not developers and just pirate the IPSW.

      • ReanimationXP

        Asspain much? Do you work for Apple? What the hell do you care if he pirates a busted beta?

      • Shut up, idiot.

      • ReanimationXP

        Get a life kid. Nobody on the internet gives a shit about you whiteknighting over a beta. Seriously.

      • LOL, You are extremely dumb. Seriously. I am not going to pay attention to any of your replies anymore.

      • u are the dumbest person in the whole comments list! Shut the hell up man! If you aren’t a kid?

      • Shut up dumb piece shit. I am much younger than you (I guess) and already know much more than you will ever know. Specially in Biology, Philosophy, History, Informatics, Writing/Literature. And I got a better memory than most other people.

        Have a nice day.

        Post Scriptum: Writing like “u”, “r”, etc. is a sign of being dumb.

    • I agree on the part where you say “Developer doesn’t need this ‘How-to’ “, but I guess we need the notify from the site where we get update that redsn0w is out for us to test it because without this post I would get so behind and really don’t know if redsn0w for dev is out! 🙂

      • But there was already a post saying redsn0w for iOS 6 is released(/is going to be released) ^^

      • LOL then I missed that 😀

    • You too were once a n00b…everyone has to start somewhere. By the way no where in this article is there a download link to the beta IPSW so how could this be possible promoting pirating? All this “How to” shows is how to jailbreak and install SSH via a developers version of redsn0w…something that many iOS developers who are just getting into developing apps for jailbroken devices may not know how to do. You insult the entire developer community with your posts.

  • Andrew Thiede

    *Installs Cydia installer via SSH*

    • ZiiG

      It wouldn matter. you can install Cydia…but it’s broken.lol. If Cydia worked on iOS 6…then the tool would install it.lol.

      • rohta

        Exactly. Cydia is still not compatible with iOS 6. This is the reason why it is not installed in this version of redsn0w.

      • RawX

        you have to mod cydia yourself and recompile it and install and it works fine

  • Why would you post this and say “also you can just use SSH to install tweaks”. Not only are you ecouraging pirating but a lot of people are going to mess up their device because they don’t know what they are doing. Developers don’t need a how-to, they easily could have just read your article on the release of the jailbreak or followed the dev team for updates on the release of a new tool

    • ReanimationXP

      Oh no! If they screw up iOS what ever would they do?? They’d be screwed for life! Until they restore, that is.

      Don’t you guys have anything better to do than post about nonsense that doesn’t even matter?

  • Leo Sack

    Help! All my apps ask for my password and when I give it to them they don’t stop asking.

  • Download iOS 6 here – iOS6Beta(dot)com

  • Download and Jailbreak iOS 6 here – iOS6Beta(dot)com

    • ReanimationXP

      fuck off with your spam

  • In still waiting the iOS 5.1.1 vs iOS 6 beta 1 on iPhone 3GS like the last firmware update

  • dinesh sadhwani

    if it is only for developers .. then y the hell you posted tis video…. !! dosent the dev team and other developers dosent know hot to kailbreak… so u posted it !!!

    • Yeah the post is for those who knows what they are doing… so maybe you don’t knwo you can go and sit back eat your popcorn ????

  • how we install the tweaks and apps directly from command line?

  • Thanks you were the only person in this post who cared, not in the bad way like the others! Thanks!

  • j0e

    Too bad SSH is broken as well.

  • Given IP 10.0.0.5, I cannot SSH into the iPhone 4. I’ve jailbroken and tether booted. Is there something wrong with my iPhone’s IP address?

  • Lester beltran

    Any ideas why Facebook, Dropbox, and other app does not open after a tethered jailbreak on IOS 6 ?
    thx in advance
    fyi:its on a dev account device

  • is it just me or other have this problem, can’t ssh

  • RawX

    this is the hard method if you change how cydia runs and make the ios code for cydia then install with the modded version for ios 6 then it installs with redsnow as long as you add the file to the redsnow.exe

  • I have an Iphone 4s on IOS 6 beta 3 , how can I jailbreak it and have cydia on it ?

  • Well for me it freezes on the pineapple logo. D:

  • Sm
