Jailbreak 6.0, iOS 6 for iPhone 4, 3Gs and iPod touch 4th Generation using Redsn0w

Today, the famed iPhone Dev Team hackers updated their wildly-popular RedSn0w utility to jailbreak iOS 6 with native Cydia support. While the new 6.0 firmware has been able to be jailbroken for some time through a simple Redsn0w and SSH workaround, this new update brings complete 6.0 support for Cydia.

Unfortunately, even with the new version of Redsnow, iOS-device users can only jailbreak iOS 6 using what’s commonly referred to as a Tethered jailbreak. Essentially, this means the device will have to be booted with the assistance of the RedSnow jailbreak utility every time it’s turned on.

Step 1: Download the latest version of Redsn0w from the download section towards the end of this jailbreak tutorial. After downloading RedSn0w, simply open and run the utility. Also, for windows 7 and Vista users, you’ll be required to right click the Redsnow, set the compatibility mode for Windows XP (service pack 2) and allow Administrative privileges.

Step 2: Click the “Jailbreak” option and set your iOS 6 device into DFU mode by holding down the home and power buttons together for a total of ten seconds. After the initial ten seconds are up, release the power button and continue holding the home button for an additional ten seconds.

Step 3: Once the jailbreak utility has finished processing the firmware information, ensure that the option to install Cydia was checked by default and continue.

Step 4: Wait for the jailbreaking process to complete, after it has, your iPhone or iPod touch will automatically reboot.

Step 5: Close out of the Redsn0w utility and reopen it. Click “Extras”, followed by “Just boot” and enter DFU mode again (refer to the second step).
