You don’t need to search around the web, just stay tuned with us to get the latest of the Apple world. For those of you who don’t already know “jailbreaking” is the process that frees the user from Apple’s restrictions. As you well know if you own an iPhone, iPad or an iPod Touch, Apple has some clear boundaries regarding its policy. For example you can’t change the theme or install 3rd party apps on your iDevice. Here is where the jailbreak community steps in and helps you out. At the moment there are two consecrated development teams, Chronic Dev Team and iPhone Dev Team, that constantly release jailbreak tools which as you probably guessed help us jailbreak the iDevices.
Latest Jailbreak Tools And Guides
iPhone Dev Team is the most popular team of jailbreak developers and they’ve provided us with jailbreak tools since the very beginning of the jailbreak phenomenon. Their most popular tool is called Redsnow and it has been used to jailbreak our iDevices for almost two years now. With every iOS version released by Apple, an updated version of Redsnow would have also been released in order to provide the jailbreak support. The Redsnow jailbreak process is not complicated. First you download and install the tool and then follow the simple step-by-step set of instructions and you’re done. Follow our guide posted here to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 untethered withRedsnow 0.9.12b2 jailbreak tool. Also you can download the latest Redsnow version from our Downloadssection.
The guys from Chronic Dev Team have become extremely popular earlier this year in January when they released the untethered jailbreak tool for iOS 5.0.1 called Absinthe 2.0. At that time Absinthe was the only tool which could jailbreak 5.0.1 untethered running on iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Currently iOS 5.1.1 can be jailbroken with multiple tools, Absinthe 2.0.4 being one of them. Follow our guide posted here if you want to jailbreak 5.1.1 untethered with Absinthe tool and also head on to our Downloads section to get the latest Absinthe version. However if you rely on a carrier unlock I strongly recommend that you stay away from Absinthe 2.0.4 as it doesn’t provide baseband preservation. Therefore if you are an unlocker then you should use Redsnow orSnowbreeze.
Update #1: As you probably well know Apple has just released the final version of iOS 6. Like always the guys from iPhone Dev Team did their job and released jailbreak iOS 6. However this is a tethered jailbreak so you will have to boot your iDevice into the tethered state every time it runs out of battery life. Also Redsnow 6.0 works only for iPhone 4, 3GS and iPod Touch 4G, 3G. Sources reported that untethered jailbreak iOS 6 will be released soon.

Update #2: Apple has just released iOS 6.0.1 update. For the moment just like for iOS 6, we only have jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 tethered available and just like before Redsnow 6.0.1 works only for iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, 3G. Unfortunately jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 untethered is not available at the moment for any iDevice. Stay tuned with iFlowReader and be the first to find out when jailbreak iOS 6.0.1 untethered is released.

Unfortunately for the moment jailbreak iOS 6.1 is only available in tethered mode. We expect that jailbreak iOS 6.1 untethered will be released soon, most likely in the next week or so. Stay tuned.
