iOS 6.0.1, 6.1 beta jailbreak already established

We were anticipating a new update to iOS 6 this week and Apple has now delivered with an official update to iOS 6.0.1. For those looking to jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 straight away, you’ll be pleased to hear that the latest version of RedSn0w can help you out and it even can jailbreak the beta 1 iOS 6.1 update as well, although there isn’t an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak just yet.

If you have an iPhone 4 or iPod Touch at the ready, you can head to your general settings and see that an OTA software update to iOS 6.0.1 is now available. It is sized at 43.3MB and contains eight notable fixes and improvements from iOS 6, including a known Passbook issue when accessing the app from the lock screen.

If you have already installed iOS 6.0.1 on your iPhone 4 and already feel the need to jailbreak, you can install Redsn0w 0.9.15b1(or b2/b3) and jailbreak the software without any hassle. The important thing to note here though is that the jailbreak is a tethered one, meaning that you will have to re-enter jailbreak state every time you switch off or restart your handset.

For the moment, this jailbreak only works with pre-A5 devices, which means that this jailbreak for iOS 6.0.1 is only supported on the iPhone 4, 3GS and iPod Touch (4th generation) only. Trying to install this on the new iPhone 5 or even the Mini iPad or iPad 4 will probably result in a bricked device.

As mentioned above, the same Redsn0w 0.9.15b1(or b2/b3) software can also be used to jailbreak Apple’s iOS 6.1 beta software, which the company released just hours ago. This will be off limits to most though, as access is only available to those with an Apple developer account – just like every other pre-release version of iOS 6.

If you are interested in giving the tethered iOS 6.0.1 jailbreak a try, you can find detailed instructions and all the download links you need over at Redmond Pie here. Considering that this isn’t a iOS 6.0.1 untethered jailbreak, we would recommend that you hold off from downloading this for the moment, as an untethered solution may just become available now that Apple has made their move.

Will you hold off from updating as well, as the world waits for an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak for the iPhone 5?

I don’t know why you face problem while downgrading your devices
Simply download any old version and restore it
Then open iTunes n restore it again officially

What I did
I’ve downloaded beta 6
+ 5.1.1 iOS

I was actually facing battery problem in beta 6
So I decided to restore to an old version
When iOS 6.0 wasn’t available
I simply restore to 5.1.1
” open iTunes
Press shift and click restore
Then browse the file 5.1.1 iOS
You have to download this file
It is around 800 mb
Then restore your phone”
When your phone is completely restored
Then this time open iTunes and click restore
And it will restore 5.1.1 officially

If you have saved your shsh at 5.0.1 then you will be able to downgrade, if not then there is no way you can achieve this.
