  • 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.

      Hi, can anyone clear up my confusion?

      I have 3GS which was bought a year ago on first day on release in UK. It is jailbroke using Blackra1n and is version 3.1.2

      I read many posts saying that i can use Sn0wbreeze to jailbreak to IOS4. A lot of posts refer to the Boot Rom having to be the old boot rom type. Most posts say that models MC*** have the new boot rom type and can not currently be jailbroke with IOS4.

      My confusion is if my phone was the earlier 3GS models how can it have a new boot rom?
      Is the info i read regarding MC*** incorrect?

      I simply want to have IOS4 and still have the jailbreak.

      is this possible and can i do it with Sn0wbreeze?

      my bb is 5.11.07 (is that same as modem firmware?)

      many thanks

      Had to restore. I'd backed up everything (as usual) before starting this process. I now have nothing. No contacts, no e-mail, nothing.

      This has never happened and I've been jailbreaking since '07.

      I will NEVER use anything like this again. I will encourage people NOT to use sn0wbreeze for anything.

      Sucks ****.

      I couldn't do ANYTHING when trying to use snowbreeze. After giving up, I upgraded to the GM 4.0 through itunes, then used redsn0w_win_0.9.5b5-3 to jailbreak it, then used cydia to install ultrasnow, and now everything is working!

      I have a 3G.

      I think some others have gotten tired of answering the same questions over again. However I do understand the thread grows fast and no one wants to read all of it.

      1. I personally believe if you have a 3G then just use the latest redsn0w, its supported and you're probably familiar with the tool.

      2. I've heard someone say that if you have a blackra1n'ed phone right now that is not teethered then more than likely your have the old bootrom, if you want to be absolutely sure, go back to about page 6 or 7 in the thread theres an absolute and confirmed way to check.

      Here you go -> Sn0wBreeze 1.6 Released : Jailbreak iOS 4 for Windows

      3. iOS4 ipsw file is, as it always is, available via apple's itunes, but you have to upgrade to the latest itunes before the upgrade shows up, then just google where to find ipsw on your computer. The computer file location is a few places on this thread also.

      Lastly, those of you that have read the thread will have understood there are some challenges this should be your general understanding, there is some risk, but most seem to have been overcome. If you have your shsh's for the older firmwares like 3.0 and up to 3.1.2 backed up on Saurik's server then I really don't see a reason to be overly worried, most failures can be reverted, luckily this is not a hardware tweak or we'd all be smacked by the big bunny.

      Happy Jailbreaking.

      Waisted almost 3 hours trying to put my sn0wbreeze home cooked ipsw on my 3Gs.
      Error 2 every time, even tried restoring to a clean 3.1.2, blackra1n it and then restore to my custom ipsw. No go
      Downloaded a custom pwnd ipsw and 10 minutes later I'm on iOS4, finally

      Hi Wim66,

      Could you share with us where you obtained this pwnd ipsw? I am stuck with the Error 2 and i have tried everything.

      I'm definately on the old Bootrom, although it is an MC model, so this should work.

      Thanks

      Did you backup your shsh blobs onto the Cydia server?

      If so, then you can just revert back to 3.1.2. Otherwise, your stuck on iOS4 for the time being.

      According to your sig, your 3GS is on 3.1.3. So you won't be able to use this method.

      You need a 3.1.2 already Jailbroken... and the only jailbreak for 3.1.3 is Spirit which isn't compatible with this.

      Only if you have the 3.1.2 SHSH files stored.

      Anyone having iTunes can't connect on their phone when getting apps from the app store? Connectivity seems sporadic ..?

      Oh ok. I guess that's a part I don't understand. Why can't you downgrade without shsh. Couldn't you setup a mock server with either stock 3.1.2 ipsw or someone elses shsh or something? I guess I don't know much about what is actually stored in an shsh. Just seems odd cuz the phone is identical to another 3gs that would have had 3.1.2
