Jailbreak iOS 6 on A4 Powered iOS Devices with Redsn0w 0.9.15b1

Good news for all those iOS 6 users who are looking to jailbreak their devices as iPhone Dev Team has updated Redsn0w to version 0.9.15b1 to jailbreak iOS 6 on selected devices. Apart from adding support for iOS 6, the updated redsn0w version allows re-restoring and downgrading of selected devices from iOS 6 or iOS 5.x firmware to any other iOS 5.x version.

Redsn0w 0.9.15b1 is available for both Windows and Mac and adds support for tethered jailbreak of iOS 6 on A4 devices (iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch and 1st-Gen iPad) only. The updated version will automatically install Cydia on iOS 6 so you don’t have to install it manually.

Step 3) Choose Jailbreak, select Cydia and enter DFU Mode (Hold Home+Power for 10 seconds, release power button while continue to hold down the Home button)

Step 4) Once the device is in DFU mode, redsn0w will begin processing the iOS 6 firmware. Once it’s done, you’ll be presented a screen with few options. Check the Install Cydia option and proceed Next to begin the Jailbreaking process which will take 5 minutes.

Step 5) Once the jailbreaking process is completed, your device will reboot jailbroken and Cydia will be available on Home Screen.

Since it is tethered, every time your iOS 6 jailbroken device is restarted it will need to be connected to a computer to boot with the help of redsn0w.
