How to install Cydia on iOS 6 with jailbreak

However, there is a way to install Cydia on iOS 6 beta. To do this, jailbreak using the Redsn0w 0.9.13dev1 application, compatible with iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G and iPhone 3GS, and make an SSH connection to the device. Before proceeding to the description of the procedure, we note a few key points:
- iOS 6 jailbreak is currently bound;
- iOS 6 jailbreak is compatible only with devices on the A4 chip;
- hacking is not supported.
