  • 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.

      As I understand if you use Spirit then you are totally screwed as far as upgrading to iOS4 is concerned. If you want to keep your OS at 3.x, JB and unlocked then use Spirit. Remember, the guy who created Spirit is not committing to do a JB for ios 4. You will be stuck at his mercy.
      I just reset my iphone to stock 3.1.3. I will not JB or unlock until a serious JB is available for 3GS, new and old bootrom, all firwares whatever other BS they use to describe a damn phone. So far it is just a joke. All the pre-requisites are annoying as hell and no one not answer a question.

      Here is what you have to do if you have a 3GS OLD BOOT

      1. Downgrade to 3.1.2

      To do this, you MUST have your SHSH blobs either on Cydia or your local machine.

      2. Jailbreak via Blackra1n

      3. Download iOS4

      4. Download Sn0wbreeze

      5. Create your custom iOS4 firmware

      6. Hold "Shift" while in iTunes 9.2

      7. Select the custom iOS4 firmware you created with Sn0wbreeze

      8. Let the iPhone 3GS restore

      9. Have fun with your jailbroken iOS4 on a 3GS.

      Thanks, so essentially there is still NO jb for 3.1.3 or 4.0. I don't know what the hype is all about on Modmyi and Redmondpie. Anything above 3.1.2 can take a flying leap for now. Its like people stopped buying iphones 6 months ago after 3.1.3 was released.
      Correct me if I am wrong. Please...

      If you have used Spirit on your Iphone , then you are stucked. You cannot use cfw made by Pwnage or Snowbreeze eventhough you have the oldbootrom, you will just keep getting errors.

      I'd say that there is a large amount of people that have a 3Gs with a new bootrom, and there are thousands already that have an iPhone 4. You seriously think that dev's should just forget about creating jailbreaks for the new users? Just cause you think your so special by having an older phone than some of us. You've gotta be pretty ignorant to be saying that, and I really don't think you realize, but your comment ticks off lots of people. Not just me.

      If you had a new 3Gs or an iPhone 4, you'd feel left out too, just like THOUSANDS of us feel right now, with all the jailbreaks only catering to older phones!

      is there supposed to be a step between 5 and 6 of putting the phone in recovery mode or is that not needed?

      Um so I used spirit to jb my iphone 3gs on firmware 3.1.3 with new bootrom. I know I'm screwed when it comes to jb iOS4 on it. I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me how I would go about unjailbreaking or whatever I have to do so I can put iOS4 on my iphone. Again I don't care if I can't jailreak with the new bootrom yet I just want iOS4 on it.

      Yes, you can use SnowBreeze 1.6.1 to restore to iOS 4.0 and you can install Ultrasn0w to unlock. Your BB will always stay the same, it is almost like official unlock, even better because you have the old bootrom.

      Just restore to stock iOS 4.0 if you just want the new feature and don't care about jailbreaking.

      Thanks for the response. I am not sure if you read my first post. There is too much mixed information out there I was told that "Using your blobs, restore to CUSTOM 3.1.3 made by Sn0wBreeze Or PwnageTools, And then you should restore with CUSTOM 4.0 to get your device on 4.0 Jailbroken."

      My configuration is
      3GS, 3.1.3 (7E18), Firmware 5.12.1, MB715LL model and JBroken with Spirit. Since this morning I have restored to base 3.1.3.

      Am I still screwed. Is Spirit is the only option? I hate Spirit because I can't go to 4.
      Please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it.
      Thanks
      You are not really screwed, just stay jailbroken and unlocked at 3.1.3 for now until they released a new exploit for iOS 4.0

      your not being left out either and neither are the iphone 4's... it will just take longer... Geohot has said hes not planning any jailbreak soon but he is working on pwned4life wich will but not anytime soon. And iphone 4's will just have too wait just like 3gs owners did.. when i got the 3gs the day it was release it took almost 3 moths for geohot to decide dev team was taking too long and came out with blackra1n lol and it will be the same for newer 3gs and iphone4's

      I thought if I updated to itunes 9.2 and I had a spirit jailbroken iphone it caused an ifinite boot loop or something along those lines.

      the real question is why was spirit ever released if it is creating more trouble for people with 3.1.3?

      To answer your question, the trick is here,
      if you are downgrading, you have to put it in DFU mode.
      If you are upgrading or restoring to the same version and if your Iphone is in working condition, you do not need DFU or Recovery mode.
      If your Iphone is stuck and not working or your Iphone is bootable but freezes at times and you are restoring to the same version, you have to put your Iphone in Recovery mode.

      I agree with you 100%. They have been playing these games. I can't believe geohot who created Spirit and now refuses to do anything to update it for ios4. It was supposed to be temp fix until ios4 came.
      I hate myself for donating $ to him.

      Man I'm totally baffled. I have a 3G3, firmware 3.1.2, jailbroken with blackrain (on a PC) many months ago. Can I qualify for this jailbreak if I upgrade to 4.0? Or is it even worth it? Should I just wait for an easier, all purpose solution? I don't want to unlock or anything, just jailbreak. Thanks in advance for any thoughts anyone may have...

      I just need some clarification, I've got a 3.1.3 3gs that i want to jb with spirit and unlock with ultrasn0w. I KNOW that means I can't jb 4.0 but I can't anyways from 3.1.3. My question is does spirit make it even MORE difficult to jb 4.0. Does it do something permanent to the phone that a restore can't fix?

      People just seem so adamant about not using spirit I just need to know if there's something I'm missing. Thanks! And good luck to everyone.

      Ok so I've decided I'll try restoring my iphone. Is there a way I can saved all my jailbroken apps and themes and other stuff before I restore it?

      Also, don't use spirit it's causing much more trouble then it's worth. All I know so far is I can't update to itunes 9.2 because my iphone is jailbroken with spirit and if I did have the old bootrom I couldn't jb it anyway because I jb it with spirit. Just use blackra1n or something.

      Thanks to Dev team for providing that all important update. They had Spirit on their site on the front page and now they built a tool that does not work with it. GREAT!!!!
      I did my reset and I sure it got rid of that crape.

      Yes , if your Iphone is untethered jailbreak by Blackra1n, you can create a custom firmware of iOS 4.0 and restore to it. You are all set. If yours is tethered under Blackra1n, don't go near cfw.
