iOS 5 Beta 6 arrives to devs, most iOS devices jailbreakable now with Sn0wbreeze
In a timely almost bi-weekly manner, an all-new iOS 5 beta arrives to developers with some extra polish and fixed bugs, but little new features. iOS 5 beta 6 is available as an over-the-air update for developers sporting beta 3 or later on their devices, and weighs some 144MB.

This time around, Apple doesn’t recommend you to wipe your device before installing the update. Among the long list of bug fixes listed at full on BGR, a little-advertized feature is the deprecation of unique device identifiers (UDIDs), an identifier often used by apps to recognize users. This basically means that all existing information that app owners might have gathered via UDIDs might need to be processed differently once (if) Apple introduces an alternative to the identifier.

The jailbreak community came up with a solution to set beta 6 devices free two days after the update rolled out, but it’s only for an untethered jailbreak for all iOS devices sans the iPad 2. For the complete set of instructions and files check out the link below.

Starting June 6th, Steve Jobs’ team has been rolling out new betas in an almost bi-weekly manner, right on track for the scheduled release this fall. In a nutshell, the major highlights of iOS 5 novelties include an overhaul of the messaging system, a new BBM-like service called iMessage allowing iOS users to exchange messages without going through the carrier as well as iCloud for syncing your essential data with the cloud.
