iOS 6.0.1 jailbroken
iOS 6.0.1 has only been out for about 24 hours, but now jailbreakers can rejoice -- the newest iteration of the iPhone Dev Team's Redsn0w can be used to jailbreak certain iOS 6.0.1 devices.
The news comes from Redmond Pie, which tested the jailbreak and found that since it takes advantage of the Limera1n exploit, it only works on devices that use an A4 chip or lower. That means that if you want to jailbreak your iPhone 5, any of the new iPads or the fifth-generation iPod touch, you'll have to wait. The iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and fourth-generation iPod touch should be able to operate with the jailbreak.
This is a tethered-boot jailbreak, meaning that any time you reboot or shut down your device, it will need to be connected to your computer in order to bring it back to a jailbroken state. Full instructions on how to install the jailbreak are available on Redmond Pie.
