iOS 6.0.1 Already Jailbroken for Some Devices

Every time a new system is released, it’s always a mad dash to see who can jailbreak it the quickest. This go-around was completed in less than 24 hours on iOS 6.0.1 by using iPhone Dev Team's Redsn0w, but it will only work successfully on devices running A4 chip or lower.

People who own the iPhone 5, the newest iPads, or the latest iPod Touch are out of luck. The jailbreak takes advantage of the Limera1n exploit, which can't handle the A5 or later chips.
