iOS 6 Tethered Jailbreak For Developers Only

Well that didn’t take very long. Yes there is a developer only jailbreak (which is tethered) out already. But don’t jump the gun yet, this iOS 6 tethered jailbreak isn’t as complete as you’d probably like it. Actually it’s useless to many…

The jailbreak itself is there, but it lacks Cydia. Like I said this is a developer only tethered jailbreak. You won’t get all the goodies that come with a public release jailbreak.

MuscleNerd, leader of the iPhone Dev-Team tweeted:

In the spirit of the “experimental ecosystem” JBers provide, we’re releasing a DEVELOPER-only tethered JB for iOS6 (no Cydia, just SSH)

Remember kids, this won’t give you access to your favorite tweaks. It’s simply a developer version to allow SSH access and so that jailbreak tweak developers can test their apps. It’s also important to note that this is restricted to a small handful of devices as well.

The Chronic Dev Team Explains everything on their blog:

Just like at the at the wind-down of last year’s WWDC, we’re releasing a developer-only version of a redsn0w tethered jailbreak for app developers.  The following limera1n-able devices are supported:

  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPhone3GS
  • iPhone4 (GSM)
  • iPhone4 (CDMA)

UNLOCKERS AND THOSE PRESERVING THEIR UNLOCKABLE BASEBANDS SHOULD STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS!  You will very likely lose your unlockable baseband if you try to install iOS 6.

THIS JAILBREAK IS INTENDED ONLY FOR DEVELOPERS OF JAILBROKEN APPS!  There are just too many broken components (Apple’s official apps, 3rd-party App Store apps, Cydia apps, etc) for this to be useful to anyone but those truly looking to fix bugs in their iOS 6 jailbroken apps.

CYDIA WILL NOT BE INSTALLED because it just hasn’t had time to be updated to the new SDK.  The only access you’ll get to the device is through SSH or afc2.  If you don’t know what either of those are, you shouldn’t be using this developer version of redsn0w!

THIS REDSN0W WILL NOT HACTIVATE!  You need to be an iOS developer with a registered UDID to get past the activation screens.  PLEASE DON’T PIRATE APPLE SOFTWARE!  Only registered devs with Macs can develop iOS applications,and only those people will have legitimate access to the beta IPSWs.

THIS IS A TETHERED JAILBREAK ONLY!  No new exploits are being exposed with this jailbreak (it uses geohot’s limera1n bootrom exploit), but that comes at a cost.  You will need to use redsn0w to “Just boot”  button to be able to use many things, including Cydia and Safari.  If you see a white icon for Cydia, or if Cydia or Safari crash when you open them, it’s because you didn’t boot tethered.

You must point redsn0w at your IPSW the first time you “Jailbreak” and “Just boot” tethered because that IPSW is only available to developers, and redsn0w can’t automatically fetch the pieces it needs from it.

Now that you’ve had a lengthy disclaimer, if you’re a developer who needs access to this, you can download the developer only version of RedSn0w at the link below…

    I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
