With iOS6 launching just says away, there is much anticipation for a jailbreak for iOS6. As of right now, iOS6 GM is able to be jailbroken via a tethered jailbreak. It is a good sign for the device down the road as far as a fully untethered jailbreak, but it certainly won’t be available for when the device launches.
A couple of things I recommend prior to the iOS6 launch:
- Backup your SHSH for your phone, using TinyUmbrella
- If you decide to upgrade to iOS to see all of the new features, but you decide you want to downgrade to iOS 5.1.1, having your SHSH keys backed up is the only way you will be able to accomplish this.
- Decide whether or not the features of iOS6 are worth giving up those from your jailbroken iOS5.
- Those new features in iOS 6 include: Passbook, Facetime over 3G, Updated Phone App, Updated Mail App, Updated Safari App, New Apple Maps, Facebook Integration and much more.
