iOS6 Beta2 Released - Redsn0w Updated To Jailbreak iOS6 Beta2

iOS6 Beta2 Released - Redsn0w Updated To Jailbreak iOS6 Beta2
Apple has pushed an update to iOS6 Beta by releasing the next version, beta2. If you are an Apple developer, you can log into your Apple developer account and then access the iOS page to download and install iOS6 on your iDevice. iOS6 fixes some known bugs and there are certain compatibility patches. There has been no significant change in iOS6 beta 2 compared to beta 1.

Having said that, iPhone Dev-Team has announced an update to Redsn0w to jailbreak iOS6 Beta 2 along with a bug fix that caused SSH problems and crashes with apps that users have been reporting. If you are a developer or if you already have access to iOS6 and would like to jailbreak your device, you can download and use redsn0w 0.9.13dev2 which is the most recent update. Jailbreaking instructions are quite similar and if you are unaware of how to jailbreak then you should probably stop reading this post and should never install iOS6 beta on your device because you might be risking your device.  If you are wondering how to jailbreak iOS6 beta2, all you have to do is to point redsn0w to iOS6 beta 1 and this will help you get a tethered jailbreak. REM : This version of redsn0w is a tethered jailbreak which means every time your device restarts, you will not be able to return to the lockscreen and will get stuck on the Apple boot logo until you connect your device to redsn0w and run tethered boot.

iOS6 brings many new features to iPhone and iPad and the most amazing feature of iOS6 is that it will have 3D TomTom maps instead of Google maps, we have already seen the preview of 3D maps during Apple's world wide developer conference (WWDC2012) that was held during June 11-15 inviting developers around the word to share the future of Apple. Another major improvement was seen in Siri, which has now become smarter, and wiser. Siri can now talk about sports and with the help of various mergers and partnership, Siri will also show the movie reviews and will rate the restaurants based on their service. During the launch, it was mentioned that iOS6 has over 200 new features that are interactive and will enhance the user experience as Apple always wanted.

jailbreaking with cydia

The most asked question every where on the internet is about jailbreaking iPhone. New iPhone owners ask various questions concerning the legal issues of jailbreak and unlock and the after jailbreak performance issues. Most commonly asked question is there any reason to jailbreak an iPhone. We have tried to gather as much as information we could to make the new iPhone owners relax that jailbreaking an iPhone magnifies the iPhone experience that people had earlier.

Q) What do you mean by jailbreak ?
A) Jailbreaking is a method of gaining root level/supreme access to your Apple device so that you can run custom 3rd party applications which are not approved by Apple. Jailbreaking is similar to rooting of Android but is much more complex and dynamic in nature. There are many benefits of jailbreaking iPhone iPad and iPod so that you may use various tweaks and applications and themes that changes the entire UI experience of using an Apple product.

There are two types of jailbreak

  1. Tethered Jailbreak :   A tethered jailbreak requires that the device be connected to a computer each time it needs to be booted. A tethered jailbreak is one which requires you to connect your iPhone, iPod, iPad to the computer every time your device is restarted/rebooted/battery drained and not booting up after pluggin in your device to the power. A tethered jailbreak is usually done immediately after a new software update is done on apple device. Tethered jailbreak is for the time being and can be fixed once untethered jailbreak is released. This usually takes some time and that's the reason why people for a tethered jailbreak as its hard to stay away from jailbreak tools.

    So if your device is on tethered jailbreak, it won't start and boot automatically, instead it will get stuck in apple boot logo and spinning wheel. This is Normal and is supposed to happen in tethered jailbreak. 

  2. Untethered Jailbreak :  An untethered jailbreak allows the device to be powered without computer assistance. It usually takes more time for an untethered jailbreak to release.

Jailbreaking tools like redsn0w, sn0wbreeze, limera1n, Blackra1n, greenp0ison, absinthe and corona are completely safe tools created by well reputed developers. Jailbreaking is safe until and unless the user himself modifies the files at root level. Apart from the jailbreak tools that developers make, they involve themselves in immense research to makes sure the users are safe from any kind of danger. Bottom line is, jailbreaking is safe if you are using tools from trusted source.

Q) Is Jailbreaking Free ?
A) Yes Jailbreaking is absolutely free. You should always rely on trusted jailbreak tools like

Q) How Can I jailbreak ?
A) Yet another most asked question. A new iOS device user gets confused with the tools and firmwares available.
