How To: New iOS 6 Jailbreak Makes Installing Cydia Easier on Your Old "A4" Apple Devices

New iOS 6 Jailbreak Makes Installing Cydia Easier on Your Old "A4" Apple Devices

For those interested in jailbreaking their A4 Apple devices (iPhone 4, 3GS, and 4th Gen iPod touch), a new update has been released that makes things a little easier. Unlike the previous Redsn0w iOS 6 jailbreak, the newest version, 0.9.15b1, comes with full support of the Cydia App store.

Cydia is the main location for jailbreakers to get access to unauthorized applications and tweaks, so its exclusion from the previous version was a huge drawback for potential breakers. Adding Cydia involved a bunch of extra steps including SSH rooting, but now it's included with this newest update. Unfortunately, jailbreakers must still be tethered, and there is still isn't any jailbreak for the newer iPhone 4S or 5.

Check out this video from iDownload for a walkthrough of the new jailbreak.
