Every hacker out there is currently trying to find a useable stable jailbreak for the iOS 6 beta 1 and so far only MuscleNerd has been successful, that too not completely since Cydia does not work on his device. Though MobileSubstrate still functions properly and he is able to install jailbreak tweaks because he installed the SSH bundle.
Since MuscleNerd was able to do so, he has tipped me saying that he will be releasing a new version of Redsn0w namely 0.9.13dev1 for developers on iOS 6 so that they can install the SSH bundle on their device and then install their staple jailbreak tweaks.
You should however note that this won’t be installing Cydia on your device. Also this version of Redsn0w is exclusively for devs so I and countless others suggest you to stay away from it.
This version of Redsn0w will install the SSH bundle only on devices capable of running iOS 6 other than the iPhone 4S, the iPad 2 and the new iPad.
Be sire to check our Downloads page, since it will be updated once Redsn0w 0.9.13dev1 is out.
Update: MuscleNerd just tweeted about it:

Before we start anything let me clarify that I don’t hold any responsibility of whatever happens to your iDevice due to this fix, but many users have reported that this fix has worked. Also do not be impulsive, first read the whole post then start the fix or install the deb.
If you are one of the many people who are facing issues while SSHing into your device because of “ssh_exchange_identification” error well I think this post is what you are looking for.
Screenshot of the error:
A few months ago I was just trying to SSH into my iPhone 4S and saw that I was unable to do so because my FTP client showed that my username or password is not acceptable, so to verify my password I open terminal and when I was verify password I saw that I was hit with the error “Connection CLosed By Remote Host”, I was baffled at this but I kept on trying eventually I gave up and restored my device and that fixed it. But after a few weeks I was again hit by the same thing so I decided to find a fix for it and I have been able to do so with success.
You can either get the deb from our downloads page and install it using iFile or follow the written instructions below. (The deb will be submitted to Cydia shortly but if you are really impatient check out the deb) Check it out below:
