Developers from the Dev Team announced that the RedSnow, their famous tool for jailbreak iOS devices, was recently updated in order to offer jailbreak for A4 devices. The good news is the fact that it offers support for Mac and Windows in order perform tethered jailbreak for iOS 6 running devices. However, Redsnow 0.9.15b1 is working for iPhone 4/3GS and iPod 4th generation. For the rest of iOS 6 devices such as A5 and A6 devices including the already famous iPhone 5, we need to wait a little bit more.
Another great this is that Redsn0w 0.9.15b1 represents the official Cydia version, which means that users are able to launch Cydia automatically after the jailbreak process ended.
Therefore, if you want to use RedSnow 0.9.15b1 to perform tethered jailbreak for iOS 6 running devices meaning iPhone and iPad, here is what you need to do:
Step 1: Download RedSnow 0.9.15b1 for iOS 6 A4 devices to perform tethered jailbreak.
Step 2: If you have not upgraded to iOS 6 on your device, this is the time to do it. It is simple to upgrade firmware on iOS devices.
Step 3: Run RedSnow 0.9.15b1. If you are using a Windows computer, then you need to run the process as an administrator. On the other hand, Mac users need to press on Ctrl and click on the same time to open the program.
Step 4: Once the program opens a new window, click on the Jailbreak button, select the Cydia option and then, enter your device in the DFU mode as the program suggests you.
Since the RedSn0w 0.9.15b1 jailbreak tool was upgraded, now, you do not need to select the IPSW. The program will recognize the firmware installed on your device and it will download any files he needs.
On the other hand, all iPhone 4/3GS and iPod 4th gen users who rely on an unlock need to preserve their baseband in order to be eligible for unlock. They need to select the IPSW manually in the Extras menu.
After the program does its job, you will be able to see the Cydia icon on your main screen. This means that the process was successful. Since Redsnow 0.9.15b1 performs only a tethered jailbreak for iOS 6 devices such as iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod 4th gen, you need to boot in a jailbreak mode each time your computer turns down. This is easy once you’ve jailbroken your device. Launch RedSnow, click on the Extras menu and then on Just Boot option or you can use iBooty tool.
Update: Redsnow 0.9.15b2 was released just a few hours ago. It’s just a small update that fixes some bugs for iPhone 3GS users. The tutorial is still the same, just go to our Download Redsn0w page and get the latest Redsnow version.
