Apple announced iOS 6 at WWDC 2012, and the world went berserk(as always with any Apple offering). Sixth major iteration of the OS brought with it a lot of bells and whistles, such as maps rebuilt, Siri more competent, a photo and streams loads more(you may want to whole list of new goodies). That same evening, iOS 6 beta became available to developers, enabling applications – the life and blood of the platform iOS – the operating system is optimized before it became available to the public. But many, like us, you just could not wait to get their hands on the latest iOS for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices, and many, though not belonging to the developers, got a new operating system and running in a few days. However, this process resulted in the first, most jailbreakers do not like at all – breaking jailbreak! The good news is that iOS 6 is jailbreakable, the public, and even you can install Cydia through some unconventional methods. We'll get to that right after the jump. Update:. iOS 6 Beta 2 is also jailbreakable by redsn0w 0.9.13dev2, using the same method, which is described below It's not unheard of that the developer build of the operating system got a jailbroken iPhone before public release, and like last year, the iPhone Dev Team was kind enough to share this tool, redsn0w 0.9.13dev2, to the general public(say public because anyone can download and use it, Dev Team strongly recommends “developers only“). Of course, there are some objections to the transaction, and the general recommendations of hackers away from iOS 6 and are available for public release. He said that the only purpose of this post, if you're not a programmer, is to show what you can do, apart from the question of “should do”. On a personal note, I do not think iOS 6 beta ready for everyday use and I would advise to stick to 5.1.1 now. However, if you are on iOS 6 in the moment, you can still jailbreak and install Cydia using the method described hereon.
What's wrong with the jailbreak?
To be honest, a lot of things. For one, it only works for A4 devices and the iPhone 3GS. Secondly, it is tethering . For yet another, it is not installed by Cydia redsn0w itself, only SSH and afc2 provide access to the device. So, if you are not a programmer, you will find little benefit to jailbreak, if at all. In addition, redsn0w 0.9.13dev2 not hacktivate the device, either. Even if we describe the method of installing Cydia on jailbroken iOS beta 6 in this post, most packages will not work, because they have not been updated to run on the latest iteration of iOS yet.

It is advisable to do a fresh restore before 5.1.1,. However, it is not necessary Then, at Summary tab, press Check for updates (or just Update ) button offset key pressed( Option in OS X), just as you Shift + Restore to specify a custom IPSW.

Please note that this method can be used on any iDevice to install beta software.
How to jailbreak iPhone 4 / iPhone 3GS / iPod touch 4G on iOS using redsn0w beta 6 0.9.13dev2
Run the downloaded redsn0w 0.9.13dev2(in administrator mode in the system Windows), and it will automatically detect the connected device. Hit Accessories button and select Select IPSW manually point to 6 beta iOS firmware file. When the IPSW is identified, you will receive a confirmation message. Hit OK . Now go Back in redsn0w and click Jailbreak button on the main screen to begin the process of your specified IPSW. After preparing the data jailbreak, redsn0w jailbreak will present options that are substantially different from the normal version. As you can see in the screenshot below, you can install SSH and Cydia will not be available(we'll get to that later). redsn0w will ask you to place your device into DFU mode, and will guide you through the process as always. If you already have your device in DFU or know how to do it, you can skip this part. The various messages, sending a first step, sending the second stage, restart, etc. The rest of the process is done on the device, and 0.9.13dev2 redsn0w will tell you that it is a tethered jailbreak, and I suggest to go back to starting. Oddly enough, our 4G iPod touch running right the first time, without having to use redsn0w just boot option, but that can be a one-time occurrence. It should be noted that according to the Dev Team blog, the first boot tethered, you must specify the IPSW and then use only the Boot Extras. This is due to the fact that iOS 6 IPSW is not publicly available yet and can not download redsn0w missing parts to repair their own servers. However, all subsequent tethered shoes will work well as a cache that was built by the first boot. Yes, you have. Your iPhone 4 / iPhone 3GS / iPod touch 4G on iOS beta 6 jailbreak. Of course, as I said before, you will not benefit from it(hell, it's not even hacktivated), but did it anyway.
How to install Cydia on jailbroken iOS 6 Beta
Since redsn0w 0.9.13dev2 not install Cydia jailbreak process, @WyndWarrior process to do it by hand, much as we delight users. For now, the device should be installed on jailbroken iOS 6 with SSH and afc2 labor services. Then you have a terminal emulator. Mac users have a terminal, and for Windows, you can select either Putty or WinSCP , as you prefer. I will be using WinSCP console terminal to this guide. Since SSH is installed by redsn0w jailbreak 0.9013dev2 during the process, you have to know the IP address of your iPhone. It is obvious that both your computer and iPhone must be on the same WiFi network. You can check the IP address by going to Settings> Wi-Fi> blue arrow in front of the connected network. Then fire up terminal emulation(WinSCP in our case), ssh into the machine. IPhone will host address IP address, the port should be set as the default, and the user name and password is “root” and “alpine”, respectively(without the quotes). Change the file to the SCP protocol, whether it's for something else, and initiate the connection. After successfully SSH'd to the machine, start the console with WinSCP Terminal Commands menu. In the console that runs, type the following command and press Execute. wget-qO / tmp / cyinstall.sh http://wyndrepo.googlecode.com/files/cyinstall.sh && chmod 755 / tmp / cyinstall.sh && / tmp / cyinstall.sh After command execution, the device respring and you should see Cydia on the springboard. If not, just reboot tethered and everything should be fine. As always, the first run Cydia build a file system, after which another respring will happen and that's it. Andrew notes that uicache may be interrupted in this method, so if you see missing icons after installing something from Cydia, just respring again and you should be fine. However, as indicated earlier, most of the packages have not been updated to work with iOS 6 yet, so it is unlikely to find much good anyway.
This concludes our detailed guide to get iOS beta 6 installed on your iPhone / iPod touch without jailbreaking developer account and getting it up and running Cydia. Does the method work for you? Let us know in the comments below.
