Earlier this week, Apple seeded iOS 5 Beta 6 to developers for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch which includes usual bug fixes and performance enhancements.
iH8sn0w has just released an updated version of Sn0wbreeze for Windows to jailbreak iOS 5 Beta 6 on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This version of Sn0wbreeze can not only jailbreak this latest version of iOS 5, but can also preserves the baseband (and hacktivate) for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users who rely on Ultrasn0w or Gevey SIM unlock.
It is important to emphasize that this is a tethered jailbreak for all devices except for old bootrom iPhone 3GS, for which it is untethered. iPad 2 is obviously not supported.
Sn0wbreeze 2.8b6 also includes the ability to remove UDID check so that non-developers can install iOS 5 Beta 6, along with Beta expiry timer set by Apple.
Full change log is as follows:
