How to jailbreak iphone final iOS6 release

iPhone Dev-Team’s Redsn0w tethered jailbreak for the final iOS 6 release. 

Before Jailbreaking, i would recommed you to perfom a full backup of all your data and info on your iDevice. Its not obvious that anything will go wrong during the process but going through a process of modifying your internals of file system needs to be seen as a precaution.

Jailbreak is compatible with only the following devices:(iDevices with A5 chip are not supported yet)
  • A4 chip based iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4th-gen. 
Before moving on, please note that,
  • This a tethered jailbreak, and is limited to the above mentioned devices only. There is currently no untethered jailbreak available for iOS 6 yet.
  • iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPod touch 5th-gen are not supported by this jailbreak.
  • If you rely on unlock, do not update to iOS 6 yet.

How-to jailbreak iOS 6:

Step 1: Download and install iOS6, if you haven't already, via iTunes or Settings > General > Software Update on your iOS device.
Step 2: Download the latest version of Redsn0w for the relevassnt operating system from the iPhone Dev Team (Windows/Mac).
Step 3: Extract the contents of the downloaded compressed file and save it to a familiar location on your PC or Mac.
Step 4: Run the executable Redsn0w file, making sure to run in administrator mode if using a Windows based machine. If you are on OS X Mountain Lion, start Redsn0w by Ctrl-Click on the icon and then selecting Open from the new menu.
Step 5: Select the Extras option from the main menu of the Redsn0w interface and point it to the desired IPSW file.
Step 6: Redsn0w has advanced dramatically with the last few major revisions and now has the power to whip through the jailbreak without much interaction. Follow the onscreen instructions (Redsn0w might ask you to enter DFU mode) to complete the jailbreak process.
How-to boot tethered on iOS 6:
As already mentioned above, this is a tethered jailbreak, therefore you will be required to boot into tethered-mode every time you reboot your device. This can be done by starting Redsn0w: click on the "Extras" button on screen and then simply click on "Just Boot" option and follow the on-screen instructions. Once done, you will be rebooted back into tethered-jailbreak mode.
How-to install Cydia on iOS 6:
The current release of Redsn0w doesn’t install Cydia by default. To install cydia, follow the steps below:
The following steps to install Cydia is done using Terminal on Mac. You can use the same commands on Windows using a SSH program like WinSCP.
  • Note down the IP address of your device.
  • Make sure your device is connected to your PC or Mac. Start Terminal on Mac and type:
ssh root@<IP address of your device goes here>
  • It will now prompt you to enter the root password. Type: alpine
  • Once done, type:
wget -q -O /tmp/cyinstall.sh http://downloads.kr1sis.net/cyinstall.sh && chmod 755 /tmp/cyinstall.sh && /tmp/cyinstall.sh
Once you get this done, the device will reboot and you'll notice the Cydia icons mimic on your homescreen. Thats it, you have been a successful jailbreaking candidate.
