  • 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.

      My understanding is that ALL MC models, regardless of serial numbers, have new bootrom and cannot yet be jb'd.

      3GS, then no. You need to downgrade to 3.x and jailbreak it. Then restore using custom firmware.
      3G, yes. Just run Redsn0w to jailbreak it.

      Because Spirit is a Userland JB which based on the OS itself.

      Nobody has been able to answer this question for me yet.

      359.3 old bootrom
      359.3.2 new bootrom

      Does anyone know if the iPhone 4 has the same bootrom as the new bootrom 3Gs(359.3.2), or has Apple introduced an entirely new bootrom with the iPhone 4?

      this is nothing new, i've been jailbroken and unlocked for over 2 days now on my 3G with Windows 7, by using redsnow and ultrasnow. iOS 4.0 is great my only recommendation to everybody thats upgrading do not enable multitasking during your initial jailbraking process, it will steal the crap out of ur memory (RAM) and u constantly have to remember to turn off Apps in ur multitasking bar. i'm not sure if snowbreeze gives u an option to enable or disable multitasking but redsnow did. either way if they don't u can always SSH into ur phone and go to: (/System/Library/CoreService/SpringBoard.app/N82AP.plist) is MULTITASKING=FALSE!
      if its set to TRUE then its on to turn it off erase true and replace with false.
      AGAIN I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING AWAY FROM MULTITASKING ON 3G IT SLOWS THE CRAP OUT OF UR PHONE, OF COURSE 3GS IS A DIFFERENT STORY CAUSE ITS GOT MORE RAM AND A BETTER CPU'
      ENJOY

      Ok so people are throw around all these numbers baseband old/new bootrom and so on, but none of them fit my 3gs. I JB my 3gs on 3.1 and then on 3.1.2 and now on 3.1.3. In theroy I should be able to JB to 4.0 but they are say if your 3GS is and MC model you can't.
      My 3GS info
      FW = JB 3.1.3
      Serial 4th & 5th number = 31
      Model = MC
      Modem FW = 04.26.08

      See where I am coming from all these are old and new and all over the place. I just really want to know If it is safe for me to use this method to JB 4.0 Thanks to anyone who can help.

      i cant stand when tutorials always just omit some MAJOR information when explaining these things.

      such as; WHERE does this .ipsw file come from? where do i get it? how do i browse to it? do i upgrade to 4.0 first and THEN find the file....do i stay on 3.1.2 and DOWNLOAD the ipsw file?

      anyone........anyone

      Just to be clear: this is not a jailbreak for the new iPhone 4 correct?

      Hmm. No support for MC models...SHOCKER! Why won't the devs just wait and release a jailbreak once it can support all models?
