Now that Apple has officially pushed out their updated beta firmware to developers, the iPhone Dev team has updated RedSn0w to 0.9.13dev2. The improved version also corrects numerous issues encountered by users attempting the process.
Unfortunately, while updated, this version of Redsn0w is still tethered and will not install Cydia. Also, this update is still lacking iPhone 4s and iPad support. The new iOS 6.0 jailbreak utility corrects practically all bugs encountered by developers and is compatible with the following A4-based devices:
- iPhone 3Gs
- iPhone 4
- iPod Touch fourth-generation
