As you all know, a trial operating system version is being released in advance for developers use only. In this way, they can keep in touch with the latest things released and in the same time, they can prepare their products for a future official release. In this respect, iOS 6.1 was released on the market. The first beta version is already jailbreakable. Therefore, if you are looking for untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak, you will have to wait a little bit longer. Unfortunately, we only have a tethered-boot jailbreak version performed with the help of Redsnow.
Redsnow is a famous jailbreak tool because it offers us the possibility to jailbreak our device in a simple, easy and safe way. The tethered status means that you will have to reboot your device in a tethered mode each time it is turned off or you run out of battery. Therefore, if you really want to try out the new iOS version released on the market, but in the same time, you want to jailbreak it, you have now the possibility to perform jailbreak on devices running on iOS 6.1 beta with the help of Redsnow.
Another important aspect that you need to keep in mind is the fact that jailbreak iOS 6.1 works only on A4-based devices such as iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 CDMA, iPhone 4GSM and iPod 4th generation. In what concerns the new iOS 6.1, only registered members of iOS Dev Team can access it. If you happen to be one of those developers who want to try out anything that is new, then you can easily start to upgrade to iOS 6.1 to try it out and then to jailbreak it.
Since it is only a tethered version so far, we should not be waiting an untethered jailbreak 6.1 too soon. The most probably is the fact that the official 6.1 will be released on the market before the untethered jailbreak will be available. Meanwhile, we all can perform iOS 6.0.2 untethered jailbreak on our iPhone 3GS or tethered jailbreak on iOS 6.0.1 which is a full and stable iOS version.
