In addition to this, you will be needing the iOS beta 1 to jailbreak the iOS beta 2 and given it is a tethered jailbreak, it will work on A4 devices only.
The Redsn01 0.9.13dev2 tool is the one, to be used for downloading and given the iPhone Dev Team still hasn’t updated the toll yo work on the newer version of the firmware, it needs to be pointed to the earlier version of the beta firware for a successful jailbreak of the iOS 6 Beta 2. The whole process had been broken down into a sequence of simple steps, for you to use them easily.
