iOS 6 Beta 3 Jailbroken Already 68

hypnosec writes "Apple launched the iOS 6 Beta 3 just a couple of days back, and the redsn0w team has given out a jailbreak for the latest version of iOS 6 already. The only downside is that this is a tethered jailbreak, which means you will have to make sure your phone is connected to the computer whenever you need to reboot it."

    Can we stop this already? There is really much less of a technical challenge to make tethered jailbreak working, and much less interesting to the jb community.

    Frankly, I wish jailbreaking an iOS device was impossible. Why? Because it might actually stop people from considering iOS devices as worth buying, because of what they can do when jailbroken. As long as its easy to climb over the walls the gardener builds around his garden, far fewer people care that the walls are there in the first place.

    As users, we should have the ability to run whatever damn software we please on the hardware we've bought. And no, we shouldn't have to hack our devices for that privilege. Yes, even software that the platform vendor doesn't approve of.

    (Every time Microsoft even ponders things for PCs that vaguely resemble what Apple does on iOS, the community screams for blood. I only wish the same level of anger, from the same individuals, would get pointed at Apple once in a while.)

    I can install whatever fucking software I want. It's called a developer license.

    Seriously, WTF is your problem at all? I've yet to find a software outside the App Store (i.e. available only for jailbroken iPhones or iPads) that I really need.

    So, for all practical purposes, there is no issue here. I do see the philosophical argument, which is why my heart is with the jailbreakers. But for my day-to-day usage, I don't need it, and neither do millions of other people. So why are you so angry?
