iPhone Dev-Team has released an updated version of their RedSn0w tool that can now tethered jailbreak iOS 5 beta 6 on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Dev-Team has been releasing these tethered jailbreaks for all iOS 5 betas released until now so that jailbreak devs can prepare their tweaks, apps, games, etc for jailbroken iOS devices in time for iOS 5 release scheduled for this fall. This tethered jailbreak is not intended for everyone, Dev-Team warns.
Update #6: 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.
