iOS 6

Very soon after the release of iOS 6 for all iDevices. We are lucky to hear that our hackers have managed to get it jailbroken but it is tethered jailbreak for A4 device only. You can follow the instruction below.

Step 1: Install iOS 6 on your device. You’ll also need to know the location of the iOS 6 IPSW firmware file. If you’re on a Mac, you can find that in /Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates/ if you didn’t download iOS 6 manually, and updated using iTunes. You can also download iOS 6 from our downloads page. After iOS 6 is installed, hook your device up to your computer, and place it into DFU mode.

Step 2: Download RedSn0w 0.9.13dev4 from our downloads page.

Step 3: Run RedSn0w, and click Extras > Select IPSW, then select your iOS 6 firmware file. It should successfully identify your firmware.

Step 4: Click Back, and then click Jailbreak. You should see a dialogue box saying “preparing jailbreak data” followed by a page with several options. Ensure that Install SSH is selected, and click Next.

Step 5: Your iPhone will now proceed through the jailbreak process. You will receive a message acknowledging that this is a tethered jailbreak.

Step 6: Once the jailbreak is completed, and you are back on your Lock screen, place the device back info DFU mode.

Step 7: Click Back, and then click Just boot. A pineapple logo should appear on your device, indicating a tethered boot. Once this complete’s and you are back on your Lock screen, you may close RedSn0w.

Installing Cydia

Step 1: On your iOS device, go to Settings > Wi-Fi > and click the arrow next to your connected Wi-Fi router. Find your IP address for your Wi-Fi connection. In my example, my IP is 10.0.1.27.

Step 2: On a computer connected to the same Wi-Fi network, open the Terminal app.

Step 3: In terminal type: ssh root@10.0.1.27 (be sure to change the IP address to match your iOS device’s IP)

Step 4: After a few seconds, it should connect, and prompt you for your iOS device’s password. The password is alpine

Step 5: Once connected, paste the following into the terminal:

wget -q -O /tmp/cyinstall.sh http://downloads.kr1sis.net/cyinstall.sh && chmod 755 /tmp/cyinstall.sh && /tmp/cyinstall.sh

Step 6: After a minute or so of scrolling prompts, your iOS device should reboot, and Cydia will be installed. If you get any permission errors on the terminal, just ignore them.

That’s it. You now have a jailbroken iOS 6 device running Cydia. That wasn’t so hard, was it?
