With the release of todays iOS 5 Beta 6, comes with it a big question from the jailbreak community; Should I upgrade? The answer to that question today is yes. And it can be jailbroken with the tools we already know and love, both Redsn0w 0.9.8b5 and Snowbreeze 2.8b5 will do the job.
The new Beta 6 can be jailbroken with the old tools, but when you begin to do the jailbreak you will want to select your Beta 6 ISPW instead of Beta 5. This will also be a tethered jailbreak, like all the others. The dev team said they would wait until iOS 5 was official before releasing the untethered jailbreak, to avoid Apple blocking it in future releases. A tethered jailbreak means that you need to plug in your device to your PC every time you want to boot it via USB.
Please remember that this version of iOS is meant for developers, so if you’re not a developer, or just don’t feel savvy enough, then please avoid the jailbreak. You can find the guides to jailbreak below, giving you step by step instructions on how to get it done properly. The jailbreak will work on the following devices:
- iPhone 4 GSM
- iPhone 4 CDMA
- iPhone 3GS
- iPod Touch 3G
- iPod Touch 4G
Don’t forget to use your new Beta 6 ISPW when completing the jailbreak.
Both current Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze which were reported by early jailbreakers to be working on beta 6, are now confirmed to be NOT WORKING & are causing all sorts of problems.
It is best NOT TO ATTEMPT a jailbreak for iOS 5 beta 6 unless either Redsn0w 0.9.6 b6 or Sn0wbreeze 2.8 b6 is released. Stay tuned here for up to date jailbreak news.
