iOS 6 Beta 2 Jailbreak

iPhone Dev Team has released the updated version of Redsn0w, which is 0.9.13dev2 to fix SSH and app crashes faced by some users with iOS 6 Beta installations. It should be noted that Redsn0w 0.9.13dev1 and 0.9.13dev2 are developer versions meant for iOS developers only and will neither support Cydia nor untethered jailbreak.

The lack of Cydia support for accessing apps means SSH access or root access is imperative and hence Redsn0w gets the new fix for users facing issues with SSH. Devices already jailbroken with the earlier Redns0w version on iOS 6 Beta, can now be updated to iOS 6 Beta 2 before using the updated Redsn0w for a tethered jailbreak.

"Update #1: The "dev2" version should fix the various SSH problems and crashes with apps that some have been seeing," reaffirms the statement on Dev Team's Blog.

Key Points to Note

Before you start the tethered jailbreak process, it must be noted that Redsn0w should be pointed to earlier Beta firmware in order to jailbreak iOS 6 Beta 2. In other words, you will need iOS 6 Beta 1 firmware in order to jailbreak iOS 6 Beta 2 successfully and the tethered jailbreak with Redsn0w is supported only for A4 devices and below - iPhone 4, iPod touch 4th generation, and iPhone 3GS.
