Last night Apple released a new test build iOS 6.1 beta 2 for iDevices. This version was designed for the developers, who have Apple developer’s account, to test apps and game on it. But don’t worry if you don’t have Apple account because you can download beta 2 using direct links in step 1 of my tutorial guide on how to jailbreak iOS 6.1 beta 2 using latest tool from iPhone Dev Team – Redsn0w 0.9.15b3.

The jailbreaking is easy and much the same as iOS 6.1 beta 1 jailbreak process. It is tethered jailbreak and can be performed only on A4 devices (iPhone 4, iPhones 3GS, iPod Touch 4). So if you are iPad 2 owneror iPhone 4S users or any other new Apple device.

Oh, BTW, you can jailbreak iOS 6.1 beta 2 untethered on iPhone 3GS using the same steps like in this guide for iOS 6 but using Redsn0w 0.9.13b3 and iOS 6.1 beta 2 firmware.
