How To Install Cydia On iOS 6 Beta [Guide]

by Abdelrahman Mohamed on June 18, 2012

A couple of days ago iPhone Dev Team released a Tethered jailbreak for Apple devices running on iOS 6 beta 1 which only install some SSH blobs on your device without installing Cydia on your iPhone. Of course too many users have been expecting to see a new thing in Redsn0w but Redsn0w didn’t include any GUI tools like Cydia only some SSH blobs have been added.. Today we have got a new way which allows you to install Cydia on your iPhone running on iOS 6 beta.. Here’s how:

NOTE: Before you get deeper in the following guide.. This way is done by a lot of users but if you did something wrong it will badly hurt your iPhone.. So Proceed at your own risk because we haven’t tried it but only the folks at iDownloadBlog have tried it and it worked great with them.. So let us began..

STEP 1: Download Redsn0w Tethered Jailbreak For iOS 6 Beta.

STEP 2: Launch Redsn0w and jailbreak your device also make an Tethered boot.

STEP 3: SSH into your device (you must be on a local WiFi network). I use Coda in my tutorial, but there are tons of other SSH tools available on the Mac. Tools like Putty work well on Windows. SSH username = “root” SSH password = “alpine”.

STEP 4: Now you will have to execute the following command via SSH (copy and paste): wget -q -O /tmp/cyinstall.sh http://wyndrepo.googlecode.com/files/cyinstall.sh && chmod 755 /tmp/cyinstall.sh && /tmp/cyinstall.sh

STEP 5: That’s it now your device will respring and you should now see Cydia on your iPhone.

But remember when you will install Cydia on your iPhone you will be able to install Jailbreak tweaks and more.. But of course there is too many tweaks that don’t support iOS 6 yet.. So it’s your own choice :)
