  • Sn0wBreeze 1.6 Released : Jailbreak iOS 4 for Windows


    Warning: Spirit Jailbreakers: Do Not Update while using the Spirit JB Exploit. Use RedSn0w, PwnageTool, or Sn0wBreeze to jailbreak first, and THEN you may use these new tools.


    Yesterday we had the release of PwnageTool 4.01 for Mac, from the Dev-Team, which allowed you to make custom iOS 4 firmwares ready for jailbreaking. Only a day later, we now have Windows support for creating custom jailbroken firmwares, with Sn0wBreeze 1.6

    Just like RedSn0w, you will have the additional functionality options for the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G, for multitasking and wallpapers. The same rules apply for Sn0wBreeze 1.6 as does PwnageTool. Certain devices are not supported. This is simply due to the fact that the hardware is not supported in iOS 4.0. The Phone 2G, iPod Touch, iPod Touch 3G are not supported. Neither is the iPhone 3GS with the new Bootrom, the MC models.

    If you have an iPhone 3GS, Sn0wbreeze 1.6 only works on previously jailbroken 3GS devices with the old bootrom. If you have a Jailbroken iPhone 3GS with the OLD BOOTROM and you DID NOT use Spirit to jailbreak, then you can create the custom firmware with Sn0wbreeze 1.6 and restore this ipsw with your jailbroken iPhone, while in recovery mode.

    If you have a Jailbroken iPhone 3G at 3.1.2 (but not jailbroken with Spirit) then you can create the firmware with Sn0wBreeze and restore your iPhone 3G from recovery mode or DFU mode. If you have an out of the box iPhone 3G you should restore using a Sn0wbreeze's DFU mode. If you have a Jailbroken 3.1.3 iPhone 3G it is very possible that this can fail from recovery mode, if this failure happens you will need to restore using DFU mode.

    Just like PwnageTool, you can add custom packages, which means you can include ultrasn0w along with the firmware so that you won't need Wi-Fi access to install it later. So basically everything that was offered on the Mac side with PwnageTool, is now available on the Windows side via Sn0wBreeze.

    As an alternative to Sn0wbreeze 1.6, you can use redsn0w on iPhone 3G (on both Windows and Mac).

    Let us recap real quick. Here is a list of supported devices:

    iPhone 3GS (old bootrom, non MC model, not spirit jailbroken)
    iPhone 3G (might require DFU,)
    iPod 2G (non MC model, not spirit jailbroken)

    In almost every case, you need to be previously jailbroken except for the 3G, but you must NOT be jailbroken with Spirit (on 3.1.2 this might work, but 3.1.3 has issues).

    Sorry guys, still no support for newer model iPhone 3GS. Stick to 3.1 for now.

      I believe I'm unteathered. I can power down my phone and bring it back up without the need to connect it to my PC. Can you tell I'm a total newb?

      So all you've got to do is making a custom 4.0 using Sn0wBreeze, and Shift+Restore to it.
      Good luck,

      Thanks - Blackrain was simple enough. I'm not 100% sure about doing it with another software. I need an idiot guide. As much as I'd like to have a new iPhone 4, I don't want to brick my 3GS to get it. LOL

      OK,
      been trying to work this out for 3 hrs

      Currently I have a 3GS with 3.1 Jailbroken with Blackrain.
      Using iTunes 9.0.1

      I know i have to upgrade to 3.1.2, and on cydia it says that my
      shsh for 3.1, 3.1.2 & 3.1.3 are on file.

      I used tinyumbrella to find my shsh which has been saved into
      a folder on my pc.

      I then downloaded the 3.1.2 ipsw for my iphone.
      Put it into recovery, connected to iTunes, Shift+Restore the
      ipsw.

      I try and recieve this error .
      (An unknown error occurred (3002).)

      Sometimes i get
      (iphone this device isn't eligible for the requested build)

      I need this to be able to then create custom firmware and
      upgrade to 4.0.....i wish i could just custom firmware over the 3.1! LOL!

      Please help!

      Still trying to figure out if this does a full restore(start from scratch) or is it like an upgrade where we still have all our apps. It sounds like since we are doing a restore it's like starting all over. Can we then sync the phone with a bakup to reload photos,apps, etc?

      And add the line
      Code:
      74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
      And add '#' to all the other lines to be seem like this:

      Code:
      #      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
      #       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

      won't change nothing, you'll have to install it to use it with you're 4.0 iphone, but not necessarily for the restore process.
      Thank you thank you thank you.... Can you point me to a link on how to restore to custom 3.1.3? Appreciate it!!!!

      Yes, you only have to make sure you backup your device before starting this process.

      Google 'downgrade to 3.1.2' and you have to do exactly the same except you should downgrade to custom 3.1.3.

      First you have to upgrade to 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 (depends on which blobs you've got backed up), jailbreak it with (Blackra1n {if 3.1.2} or PwnageTools Or Sn0wBreeze, Or simply download a custom 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 version)
      and only then, upgrade to CUSTOM 4.0.
      here's a link for 4.0 anyway:

      Ok, I'm back with another dumb question...

      Should I upgrade to 4.0 through itunes first, THEN run snowbreeze?
