Developers and hackers have already started spreading thin and digging a little deeper into iOS 6.0 beta rigs. Before you download and install iOS 6 beta onto your iOS device, it is highly recommended to take a backup on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.
Note: Jailbreaks and unlockers MUST stay away from installing or updating their iOS device to the latest iOS 6, since it will patch pod2g’s untethered jailbreak exploit.

Want to try iOS 6 but do not have a Dev account? You can simply shift+update & your activation ticket will remain. Also if your UDID has ever been registered you can shift+restore.Even if the Dev account is no longer active your device will still activate. I’ve tested on 2 different devices.
