The long awaited Jailbreak for IOS 6 is finally here!
For those waiting patiently for it below are the instructions to carry out the jailbreak: –
Firstly backup your iPhone, you hopefully won’t have any issues but we don’t want anything to be lost.
Update your phone to the latest version of Apple software through iTunes – Currently at the time of writing 6.1.2.
If your phone has been previously jailbroken iTunes may report an error. This happened to me but it’s fine and iTunes simply prompts to do a restore and update.
** It is advisable to disable the passcode lock before jailbreaking, the developers have mentioned some people that didn’t do this experienced problems **
Once updated it’s time to jailbreak, I would advise jailbreaking before restoring your backup.
Head over to www.evasi0n.com to download the jailbreak tool for your OS, both Mac and Windows versions are now available
I use a Mac and the tool looks like below (I have already jailbroken my iPhone 4S hence the message below.)
Click Jailbreak and relax while the software does it’s magic.
Towards the end of the jailbreak it will ask you to tap the Jailbreak icon that has been newly added to your iPhone. ONLY PRESS THIS ONCE! – it won’t do much other than flash quickly but this allows the jailbreak to complete.
All Done, now you can restore your backup and then start putting your favourite tweaks back on your phone through Cydia.
