  • 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 got an error message when building the IPSW saying "Could Not Find C:/Users/etc,etc,etc/Resources.zip"

      Anyone has a clue on that or I'm just stupid and can't figure out?

      For those who want to know if they have old or new bootrom, I remember it was this, look at your 4th and 5th digit on your serial number, for example it is abc23 then you have the old bootrom. The digits stand for the week your iPhone 3gs was produced. 3g and 2g users don't have to worry about bootrom issues. if yours is 39-42 it is not exactly known cuz some have the old and some have new. If it is over 43 then you have the new bootrom. So if yours is 1-38 I guess it is old bootrom, 39-42 it is unclear, and 43+ it is new bootrom.

      Does this work with a previously JB 3Gs (not spirit, non MC) that now is on iOS4 and baseband 5.13?

      My serial number is 21, so I guess I should be good. I'll try it out tomorrow.

      If I already upgraded my jailbroken iphone to iOS4, can I now Jailbreak it again or not? This is what I am not clear on. I am not a hacker so all this bootrom blah blah blah talk just confuses me.

      Can anyone explain to my why we can't JB iOS 4.0 on the iPod Touch 3rd Generation? It seems strange to me, but I'm sure there must be some logical explanation.

      Confused by all the mb mc for new or old bootrom on the 3gs. Mine starts with mc but was made week 37 and used blackra1n on 3.1.2 untethered. I thought to check for new or old bootrom was by the 4th and 5th digits not the first two

      I think tar is true if u have 3g. Fron what I've heard 3g users should upgrade to 4.0 and then use either redsn0w or sn0wbreeze 1.6 which was just released a bit earlier to jailbreak. Anyone please correct me if I am incorrect on anything as I am downloading 4.0 to iTunes via a verry slow Internet connection (still have 38 min's left) lol.

      seandiego: downgrade to 3.1.2. Jailbreak it with blackra1n, redsn0w, pwnage, watever, just not Spirit. Then go ahead and run snowbreeze to get back to ios 4 jb
