Although there have been methods in the past geared towards skirting around a broken Home button in order to jailbreak an iPhone, I don’t remember any of them being as easy as this.

RedSn0w 0.9.14b2 allows you to create a firmware file that will push your device into DFU mode once a normal restore through iTunes is completed. Check out our full tutorial inside for the step-by-step video walkthrough… Read More

As promised, the iPhone Dev Team has released RedSn0w 0.9.13dev1 for both Windows and Mac. This latest RedSn0w update is for developers only, as it allows you to perform a tethered jailbreak on iOS 6.
If you’re not a legitimate developer, it’s advised that you stay away, as there is no Cydia install performed with this jailbreak. The only thing you will have access to is SSH or afc2, which are certainly useful, but you have to know what you’re doing.
