The iOS 6 GM Has Been Jailbroken For Developers [Jailbreak]

During the onslaught of iPhone 5 news that’s been circulating this week, a tethered jailbreak for the final iOS 6 Golden Master (GM) was released. The iPhone Dev-Team announced the update yesterday.

While iOS 6 will be unleashed for the public to download on September 19th, hackers have already been working on finding exploits to create a public jailbreak release.

RedSn0w, the tool used to jailbreak an iOS device on a Mac or PC, has a new beta update available for the iOS 6 GM:

Update #3 – Sep 13:  The “dev4” version covers all the betas and yesterday’s 6.0 GM seed.  There are some remaining issues with Cydia and fundamental modules like PreferenceLoader, so it remains an openssh-styledeveloper-only release only for now!

Not only is the iOS 6 GM not available to the general public, but the jailbreak itself doesn’t even include Cydia, the jailbreak version of the App Store. The current tethered jailbreak for the iOS 5 GM is meant for developers who want to test compatibility for their jailbreak tweaks and apps.

It will take some time for the first public iOS 6 jailbreak to come out, but have patience. We’ll have more news on the iOS 6 jailbreak in the weeks to come.
