With the brand new release of iOS 6 of the Apple Team, many people hurried to upgrade to this new version. If you are one of these people, I am sure that you are interested in finding a genuine jailbreak version that will work on your iOS 6 device. Unfortunately, for this version, we only have a tethered version available and this works only for some devices only. To be more precise, jailbreak 6.0 is available only for older devices such as iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1 and iPod Touch 3rd and 4th generation.
So, if you want to jailbreak your device, you have two options. You can use Redsnow tool, which is famous for its functionality or you can go with Absinthe, a tool that is simple and effective in the same time. Therefore, each one of these tools will perform tethered jailbreak 6.0 and in the same time, it will offer us Cydia Store. So, Cydia is incorporated in Absinthe or RedSnow software and you do not need an alternative package to install Cydia.
As I mentioned at the beginning, only A4-based devices running on iOS 6 will benefit of a tethered jailbreak. For the rest of devices, you will need to wait a little bit longer because I am sure that developers will work something out. For those of you who still find this uncertain, tethered jailbreak means that you will perform jailbreak on your device but you need to redo a small part of the process each time your device runs out of battery. It can be quite annoying, but after all, it is only a matter of time until we will receive the untethered jailbreak. If you already upgraded to iOS 6, you should start jailbreak 6.0 using Absinthe or RedSnow as soon as possible.

I know that many of you enjoy customizing their iDevices with amazing themes, wallpapers and different icons. This is normal since Apple is forcing us to stick with that dull grey appearance for our devices. Fortunately, Cydia download is a great source for downloading amazing themes and wallpapers. With a simple Cydia download free, you will be able to make your device personal and unique. However, when you first launch Cydia, you will have only some default sources. These sources, also called repositories, host various apps and tweaks arranged by their developers. When you want something different and new, you must add different sources to have a wide search. There are hundred Cydia sources available, but not all of them are useful. Therefore, when you choose one, you should look for some information related to it. Be careful with all apps that you download because some of them may contain malicious files.
Now, I want to present you several great Cydia sources for downloading great themes. It is worth mentioning the Insanelyi repos, which is a great host for extraordinary themes for both iPhone 4 and 4S. The iHacks repo hosts a multitude of apps and tweaks but here, you can also find HD themes and wallpapers. If you visit Bite Your Apple, you will see that here HD themes are available along with other customization tweaks and apps. For those of you who are a little bit more experienced, I would truly recommend you thePwnCenter, which is the main source for amazing themes, wallpapers and ringtones. This is all that you need to make your iPhone or iPad personal and more attractive.
All these Cydia sources are only a small part of what Cydia has to offer you in matter of appearance and design. All those remaining sources are also true hosts for great apps, tweaks and extensions. All depends on the user and on his needs and desires. Since Apple bans our complete and full access over the operating system, with Cydia we will have exactly what we need.

I am pretty sure that many of you want to learn how to jailbreak their devices at this moment. The process may sound quite fancy and complicated, but in fact, you need only some minutes to complete jailbreak 5.1.1. Jailbreaking has changed a lot in the last years and these changes are welcomed especially when they help us to use our device at maximum capacity. Almost 90% of Apple users in the whole world choose to jailbreak their devices in order to have enough freedom to do whatever they want with their devices.
For the start, you need to decide over the jailbreak tool that you want to use in order to perform jailbreak 5.1.1. This may take some while for researching especially when we have many options available on the market. Each one of these tools is free of charge and easy to use. For instance if you choose to use Absinthe 2.0 to perform jailbreak 5.1.1, things are very easy. For the start, you need to download the software on your device and extract it on a special folder. Then, when you connect your device to your computer, you should perform a back up plan using iTunes just in case. Starting with this, things will be clear and simple. You need to have some patience in order to complete the process. Once it is completed, you need to reboot your device for the changes to take place. When everything is done, you will see Cydia icon on your screen. Then you will know that everything went just fine and you can start exploring new possibilities and options. Since the software will tell you gradually what you have to do, I am pretty sure that even an average user will be able to perform jailbreak 5.1.1.
