Apple recently launched the new iOS 6 beta 3 for app developers, and shortly Redsn0w came out with a new update that jailbreak iPhone 4 for free. First, I want to emphasize that the method is intended for developers who need to jailbreak iPhone 4 and update applications or Cydia tweaks. Redsn0w 0.9.13dev3 make a tethered jailbreak on iPhone 4 and also work on iPhone 3Gs and iPod Touch 4G running iOS 6 beta 3.
What you should know about this free jailbreak for iOS beta 6:
- Jailbreak method is designed only for developers who want to update their applications/tweaks;
- iOS 6 beta can be installed (officially) only if you have a developer account;
- New devices like iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3 are not compatible;
- Hacktivation for iPhone 4 not work, so if you have a locked iPhone do not venture on this process;

Note: Cydia is not officially compatible with the new version of operating system or the majority of tweaks present there.

Step 02: Copy the following command in SSH tool: wget -q -O /tmp/cyinstall.sh http://wyndrepo.googlecode.com/files/cyinstall.sh && chmod 755 /tmp/cyinstall.sh && /tmp/cyinstall.sh
