Update 1: iOS 5 Final version has been released for Download and Jailbreak - Click Here
About two days ago, Apple released iOS 5 beta 6 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Now in this post we will teach you how to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 6 using redsn0w 0.9.8b6 on your Windows and Mac computer.
Keep in mind that redsn0w 0.9.8b6 will jailbreak iOS 5 beta 6 tethered on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Meaning that if your device ever runs out of charge or you need to reboot it, you will have to connect it to your computer and boot it tethered using redsn0w 0.9.8b6.
Here's what the iPhone Dev Team says:
We’ve released redsn0w 0.9.8b6 to jailbreak iOS5 beta6 (point it directly at the beta6 IPSW). Two important notes about this version: (1) Please let your device boot normally to IOS5b6 and do a clean shutdown (slide to power off) before jailbreaking. (2) Boot logos have intentionally been disabled for now, so you’ll see a black screen on tethered boots (you can re-enable logos or verbose boot with command-line options if you really want them back). Due increased sensitivity to abrupt filesystem shutdowns in IOS5b6, it’s very important that you do a clean shutdown before running redsn0w.To jailbreak iOS 5 beta 6 using redsn0w, follow this tutorial and don't forget to select the iOS 5 beta 6 ipsw for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch when redsn0w 0.9.8b6 asks you to.
