How to jailbreak iOS 6 and install Cydia

iOS 6 was just released a while ago, and now we’re going to show you how to jailbreak it.

First of all, please note that this is a tethered jailbreak, and it only works with A4 devices like the iPhone 4.

Secondly, since there currently isn’t any jailbreak tool that will install Cydia just yet, we’re going to have to go about installing Cydia using a manual process.

Still game after all of those asterisks? Then come inside, as we show you how to jailbreak iOS 6 final…

How to jailbreak iOS 6 GM with RedSn0w

iOS 6 GM was released yesterday, and it was shortly followed up by a release of the RedSn0w 0.9.13dev4 jailbreak tool.

How to install Cydia on iOS 6 beta

Last week a tethered jailbreak was released for iOS 6 running on the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 4th generation. While it was great to have a jailbreak so soon, the jailbreak didn’t include any GUI tools like Cydia, only SSH and afc2 support were added.

Fortunately, now that we have SSH access, we can transfer and install pretty much anything on our jailbroken iOS 6 devices, including Cydia.

Check inside for the full video tutorial that shows you how to install Cydia on iOS 6 beta…

How to jailbreak iOS 6 beta with RedSn0w 0.9.13dev1

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.

iPhone Dev Team to release iOS 6 developer-only jailbreak

Indeed, there will be a jailbreak for iOS 6 in the very near future, but it might not be what you’re expecting. This morning, MuscleNerd announced that the iPhone Dev Team will release an iOS 6 jailbreak “In the spirit of the experimental ecosystem JBers provide”.

With that in mind, the team is releasing a developer only jailbreak for iOS 6. This means that you won’t have access to a pretty interface like Cydia, but you will be provided with SSH access.

MuscleNerd jailbreaks iOS 6 beta

It’s true, MuscleNerd has successfully jailbroken iOS 6 on an iPod Touch 4th generation device. Unfortunately, that jailbreak isn’t publicly available, and in its current form it’s hardly what we’d expect anyway. While it’s been technically jailbroken by the defacto leader of the iPhone Dev Team, essential items like Cydia still lack functionality, and it’s just a tethered jailbreak.

Hence, it’ll probably be a while before we see an official iOS 6 beta jailbreak from the Dev Team. It’s just nice to know that they’ve already started tinkering around with the possibilities…

How to convert an iOS 5.1.1 tethered jailbreak to an untethered jailbreak using Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether

If you currently have an A4 device or below that’s jailbroken on iOS 5.1.1 using a tethered jailbreak, you can use the new Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether package to convert your tethered jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak.

How to jailbreak iOS 5.1 with Sn0wBreeze v2.9.2

Now we’ve put together a written tutorial along with a video tutorial that guides you through the entire tethered jailbreak process for iOS 5.1 on Windows.

Sn0wBreeze v2.9.2 released to jailbreak iOS 5.1 on Windows

Hot off the heels of Thursday’s RedSn0w iOS 5.1 compatibility update comes Sn0wBreeze v2.9.2, which makes the popular Windows jailbreak tool compatible with iOS 5.1.

If you’re familiar with previous iterations of Sn0wBreeze, then you’re not going to find any surprises here. It’s still about creating a custom IPSW and restoring via iTunes to accomplish the jailbreak.

One of the advantages that you have with Sn0wBreeze is that it will preserve your baseband for those interested in maintaining an existing unlock.

This updated for Sn0wBreeze is compatible with A4 devices and below, and is of course, a tethered jailbreak. Check out more details inside…

How to jailbreak iOS 5.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.10b6

iOS 5.1 has finally dropped, and for the most part we totally recommend staying away from the update if you care anything about your jailbreak, as does the iPhone Dev Team.

That being said, for those with older A4 devices, it is possible to enjoy a tethered jailbreak on iOS 5.1 and still downgrade back to previous firmwares if you have your SHSH blobs for those firmwares.

With A5 devices like the iPad 2, and the iPhone 4S, it is impossible at the moment to downgrade to any older iOS 5.x firmware, even if you have your SHSH blobs saved. So don’t upgrade to 5.1, especially if you care about your iPhone 4S jailbreak.

If you have an iPhone 4, iPod touch, iPhone 3GS, or original iPad, then check inside for a tutorial on how to perform a tethered jailbreak on iOS 5.1…
