How to Jailbreak iOS 6 Beta 2 using Redsn0w 0.9.13dev2

The beta version 2 of iOS 6 has only hit the markets and is available with registered developers, but thanks to the jailbreak community and its Redsn0w tool you can now jailbreak it on A4 devices which includes the likes of iPhone 4 , 4S and iPHone 3G. The current jailbreak is tethered which implies that each time the device is powered off or rebooted you will need to connect to a PC having a redsn0w installed on it.

Before you go ahead with the jailbreak , the major points that you need to keep in mind are that you must be a developer for downloading a iOS 6 beta firmware, also you shall need a iOS beta 1 for jailbreaking the iOS beta 2 and it will be working only for A4 devices and is a tethered jail break.

The jailbreak tool is RedSn0w 0.9.13dev2, but since the iPhoen Dev team hasn’t updated the tool to work on the latest version of the firmware, one needs to pint it to the previous version of the beta firmware for jailbreaking the iOS 6 beta 2. The process is very simple and has been broken down into a few simple steps for your ease.

Step 1 : Install iOS 6 Beta 2.

Step 2: The device should  be in DFU mode before you start the process.

Step 3: Download Redsn0w 0.9.13dev2 and click open.

Step 4: Once you have done that , click on to Extras- Select IPSW and point it to the iOS 6 Beta 1 firmware.

Step 5: Now you need to go back to the main screen and hit jailbreak. Install SSH must be checked, while you do so. You must know that this jailbreak will not be installing Cydia on your device.

Step 6 : After finishing the Jailbreak, the device must be placed back into the DFU mode and once again go to Extras- Select IPSW thereby pointing your iOS 6 Beta 1 firmware. Once that has been identified, you need to select Boot from the Extras menu for performing a tethered boot.

That is it then ,the installation is complete and you are free to enjoy the iOS 6 beta 2 jailbroken.

Although this doesn’t add Cydia on to your device, and that has left a lot of people disappointed, one must know that installation of Cydia is possible by using the SSH.

The iOS 6 has a lot of new and amazing features, but with a number of glaring oversights in the software, the jailbreak community is continuing to thrive. Cydia has for long been offering the upcoming features of iOS 6 and most of the new features can be ported through those who are running the older firmware. Now you can enjoy the dual benefit of new features of iOS 6 along with the various features that the jailbreak will let you enable.
