Along with the release of the well-waited iOS 6.0.1, people all over the world hurried to upgrade. This brand new iOS version was supposed to bring numerous changes compared to the old versions. The good news is the fact that it was quickly jailbreakable and people were able to enjoy more of this amazing operating system.
Take into consideration the fact that iOS 6.0.1 jailbreak is performed using Redsnow and it will have the same specifications as the old ones. However, if you want to jailbreak your device, you need to know that jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 untethered is possible but only on older boot devices such as iPhone 3GS. Even if you own an A4-based device, all you can do is to start tethered jailbreak on it.
Short guide to start tethered/untethred jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 on your device:
1. First of all, you need to upgrade to iOS 6.0.1 on your device and then to download and install Redsnow.
2. Launch Redsnow on your desktop computer.
3. Click on the Extras option. At this point, you will be able to see the IPSW option.
4. Click on IPSW and choose the firmware you are running on your device; in this case, the iOS 6.0.1.
5. For the next step, you need to click back and choose Jailbreak. This will start the jailbreak process on your device. Before the jailbreak starts, you need to put your device in the DFU mode.
6. Once Redsnow finishes its job, you need to go back, to click on the Extras button, chose the IPSW to select your current firmware and then go back. At this point, you will be able to see the Just Boot option. Put your device in the DFU mode once again and you will boot in a tethered way.
You need to redo the sixth step each time you turn off your device or when it runs out of battery. This happens in the case of a tethered jailbreak. No release date was announced for the untethered jailbreak so far, but all we have to do is to wait until it will be available on the market. Meanwhile, the new iOS 6.1 beta is already on the market, and users can easily upgrade to it. However, it is only for developer purposes and it is tethered jailbreak eligible. For iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak, I am sure that we will have to wait a little too much.
