After the introduction of a new iOS, the general tendency of the mobile geeks is to find out ways of jailbreak it as soon as possible. The limitations that users face while using the iPhone, iPod touch, or the iPad is easily removed when the device gets jailbreak, and users can unleash a world that is full of potentials without any limitations.
The Apple Dev team has developed the RedsnOw, which can easily jailbreak the latest OS. Many engineers have tested the claims, and they have also confirmed that the process of jailbreak 6.0.1 is possible by using the RedsnOw. Till now this process is only possible in devices that are A4 or lower. So, if you were hopeful that you will be able to use this trick in your latest iPhone 5, then you are sure to get disappointed.
The process of tethered jailbreak
The RedsnOw that is used for the jailbreak 6.0.1 allows only tethered jailbreak. This means that, after jailbreaking, every time the device is switched off, or the device is rebooted then you have to connect the device to either a laptop or a Mac.
Only then will the device again start working normally. Although you might be thinking that any type of jailbreak will do as long as you are free, but there are a few problems that you should keep in mind before you opt for jailbreak 6.0.1.
Importance of jailbreak
Apple does not support the matter of jailbreak, and call it as an infringement of the copyright. The good news is that the Copyright Office has recently declared that if the iPhone is jailbroken, then it will not hamper the copyright act.
This act is violated only in the case of iPads, and iPod Touch. Still many people opt for jailbreak 6.0.1 as then they will be able to install those applications that are not available in the Apple app store. They can also install themes and other suitable apps from other Operating Systems, as well.
Although people are successfully using the option of jailbreak, it is advisable that you wait till the unTethered version is launched. This is especially advisable to those whose single day will not pass by without their device.
