Maybe you have heard about the release of the iOS 6 beta version. So far, since its first release back in June, Apple team released four beta versions in order to improve it and to fix several bugs related to stability and performance. This current 4-beta version on iOS is tailored specifically for developers in order to offer them a quick step forward for upgrading and improving their packages. In this way, when we will be able to upgrade to iOS 6, we will have all Cydia packages available and functioning. As you may imagine, iOS 6 beta is not yet designed for common user. The full version will be released in October and until then, we have to stick with the jailbreak 5.1.1.
If you cannot wait for the fixed version, you are free to try up this one. You ca start download any time you want. Fortunately, developers already came up with jailbreak 6 a short time after the iOS 6 was released. Redsnow launched by the Dev Team is the only jailbreak tool that is capable of offering us a jailbreak 6 version. This jailbreak utility is offering only a tethered jailbreak and it supports only some Apple devices. Therefore, if you are a developer and you want to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS, 4, 4s and iPod Touch 4G, you are free to do it. For the rest of iDevices, we will have to wait for an untethered jailbreak. This thing should not be that far away. Back to the jailbreak 6, I want to point out that this jailbreak process is intended only for true jailbreakers and developers. It will not install Cydia Store on your device but will offer full support and accessibility to the operating system. After all, this is what developers want after all. They need to see how iOS 6 will behave around the files in the operating system, and what they need to change in order to make everything work properly. If you do not know what this is about, you should stay a side for now. In the way things move and advance, I am pretty sure that in a week or two, we will have our devices jailbroken.
The new iOS 6 will show full compatibility for the following devices: iPhone 3GS/4/4S, iPod Touch 4G and iPad 2/3.
