The rest of jailbreak tool works just as well as on OS X Lion or Windows.

I’ll remind you that last stable version Redsn0w fixes work of a program for modem firmware 06.15.00 downgrade for iPhone 3G/3GS, so that users who encounter an error, can fix it using Redsn0w 0.9.14b2. If you’re an early adopter of Apple technologies and managed to install iOS 6 beta 3 on your iDevice, you can also jailbreak it using Redsn0w 0.9.13dev3 which was created specially to open root access on the most recent Apple’s iOS. However, the jailbreak works with some restrictions. You can’t install most of the jailbreaking apps on the device as they weren’t developed and tested on iOS 6 beta. There’s also no official Cydia build for iOS 6 beta, but you can compile it by yourself using our guide how to install Cydia on iOS 6.
