  • 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.

      You can't because you have the new bootrom.

      What do you mean, is it because your download file is .zip. Just rename it to .ipsw and run snowbreeze 1.6. I just jailbroke mine and unlock by Snowbreeze

      so re-jailbreak using one of the above mentioned and then upgrade to ios4 is what i understand this to be, correct?

      everything you said went right over my head. i've been jailbreaking my phone for about a year now, but i've only used redsnow, blackrain, and spirit. if i'm on 3.1.3(and jailbroken already), why would i upgrade, then downgrade just to jailbreak again? guess i'll just wait a couple more days. i really was gonna go get the iphone 4 and give my son my 3gs, but it sounds like that need to work out some bugs 1st...

      Mmracing- did you post this up on the snowbreeze forum? Someone posted an identical issue and their fix was downloading the Ipsw again. Maybe it was a bad download or source.

      Yes, exactly but your previous jailbreak must not be Spirit, then restore to Snowbreeze.ipsw created by Snowbreeze. It works like a Charm..

      Does anybody know if I have to be on iTunes 9.2 to make sn0wbreeze 1.6 to work?

      Before I JB, does anyone know what other apps dont work beside Winterboard, from what I heard it doesn't work?

      Last time we had a whole thread for us to keep track.

      Here's another n00b question to add to the mix. I've only jb'd with blackra1n so I'm not familiar with the process of snowbreeze. I download apple ios4, use snowbreeze to modify the ipsw file, then tell my phone to restore with that file? With the outcome is it like an update where I would still have my apps etc or a restore where I start from scratch?
      Thanks

      You have to look at the 3rd digit too, if it is 0, then it is year 2010, eventhough week 17, it is still a new bootrom

I tried redoing the custom Ipsw thru sn0wbreeze, but I get the same error every time. HELP!!! I'm now stuck with an iphone in recovery mode. help please
      You could be in Recovery loop, unfortunately quickpwn doesn't work when Itunes 9.2 is installed. So you best bet is to use another computer whereby quickpwn can open up , follow the pop up message, then you will be booted to home screen.

      Are you in DFU or Recovery mode?

      I mistakenly tried in DFU the first time and got 1600 but in Recovery it worked without any issues.
