iOS 6 has been out for less than 24 hours, yet if you’re the lucky owner of one of three particular iDevices, you can already jailbreak Apple’s latest mobile OS version.
It’s become a tradition for hackers to release jailbreaking tools soon after each iOS update. This time, they’ve moved as fast as possible and produced a usable exploit for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 4th generation. Unfortunately, those are the only jailbreakable devices right now under iOS 6.
Furthermore, the jailbreak is of the tethered variety. That means that you’ll need to connect your iPhone or iPod to a computer each time you want to boot it, if you want to keep the jailbreak.
These are early days, of course. The exploit is bound to get more refined, losing the tethering requirement, and become available for other iDevices too. That’s what has always happened in time. For now though, if you have one of the aforementioned supported devices and are itching to get your jailbreak on, go to Redmond Pie for the complete guide on what to do.
