The pictures were released by Grant Paul, who provided a string of screen grabs on Twitter that showcase what appears to be Cydia installed on iOS 6. However, the authenticity in the pictures cannot be determined, according to YouMobile.org.
Paul claims the jailbreak took 30 minutes to perform and that it was easier to use on the iPhone 5 than on the 4S.
An iOS 6 jailbreak for iPhone 4 users is also now available.
The iPhone Dev-Team's Redsn0w jailbreak is now compatible with iOS 6 on several devices including the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and the fourth generation iPod Touch.
This jailbreak is tethered, which means that the procedure has to be repeated every time an Apple device needs a reboot.
This redsn0w jailbreak was first released back in June when Apple made iOS 6 available to all developers. Unfortunately it did not work on the iPhone 4S and still has not been made compatible with the handset after the official build rolled out to Apple users yesterday.
The iPhone 5 will come with iOS 6 preinstalled so many more jailbreaks are expected to surface after the device launches. Redsn0w is one of the first working jailbreaks for the system.
Apple announced the iOS 6 release time for 1 p.m. ET last Thursday; however, some iPhone users reported that they did not receive the notification to update their software at that time.
This could be due to the fact that some of the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch users still have not updated their devices to the latest build of iOS 5, 5.1.1.
