(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Apple made an announcement in June slating the arrival of their iOS 6 for sometime this fall. For the first time since the release of the original iPhone, Apple finds themselves in an unfamiliar position. Their dominance in the mobile industry is being seriously threatened, as Android devices have caught up, and in some cases have even surpassed the capabilities of the most advanced iOS devices. Coupled with the fact that this will be the first iOS released since the passing of Apple’s founder Steve Jobs, makes the iOS 6 release one of the most highly anticipated releases in the company’s history.
The beta for Apple’s new iOS 6 has been available to developers through their Developer’s Portal for about two months now, and they have just released iOS 6 Beta 4. With the full iOS 6 expected to be released to the public in the coming months, developers with the latest Beta installed can now have complete jailbroken access to their iOS devices (iPhone 4, 3GS or iPod Touch 4). Thanks to jailbreak tutorial expert Tanner Marsh, founder of BestTechInfo.com and the mastermind behind the popular iCrackUriDevice YouTube channel, jailbreaking an iOS device couldn’t be simpler.
Marsh has just released the latest in his long line of jailbreak tutorial videos, which can be found on his website, BestTechInfo.com, or his YouTube channel, iCrackUriDevice. It should be noted that this jailbreak is intended for developers and advanced users only, because it enables SSH access but does not install Cydia. The jailbreak is also tethered, meaning users need to connect their devices to a computer when they reboot it. Marsh explains all the specifics in his video, including what this jailbreak unlocks and what is needed to complete the process.
