When Apple released their newest firmware, namely the iOS 6, many users hurried to upgrade their devices. What it great is the fact that they do not need to wait that long before that can jailbreak their devices. Fortunately, developers from the Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team hurried to release a jailbreak tool. In this way, RedSnow and Absinthe were easily updated in order to perform jailbreak 6.0 on A4 devices running on iOS 6. Whether you choose to use Absinthe or RedSnow for jailbreaking your devices, things are pretty much the same. You will get only a tethered jailbreak for now. What is great is the fact that we will have access over Cydia. As you know, in the past, when the first jailbreak beta version was released for iOS 6, Cydia was not included and you needed to install an alternative package.
To make things clear, jailbreak 6.0.1 is now available only for iPhone 3GS/4/4S, and iPod Touch 4th generation. For all newer devices such as iPad 2/3, iPhone 5 or iPod Touch 5th generation, you need to wait a little bit longer before jailbreak will be possible. However, as I mentioned earlier, this is only a tethered jailbreak, which means that you need to perform the last step of the jailbreak process each time when your device runs out of battery or you choose to shut it down. When tethered jailbreak is performed, the device needs to boot in a jailbreak mode each time when you turn it on. This is possible only with the help of the tool you used. Whether you choose RedSnow or Absinthe to perform jailbreak 6.0.1, you will see that the process is quite simple. It will take only several minutes and then you will have a brand new jailbroken device to use.
Jailbreaking offers us complete and unconditioned freedom over our Apple devices in order to perform the changes you need.
