  • 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.

      wut.
      My phone is stuck on the sim activation screen, so my friend has agreed to let me use his AT&T sim card to activate it. My question is will he get charged or something if I use his sim to activate it? And after that, how do I jailbreak/unlock iOS4 to use with T-Mobile, my carrier?

      Ok .. I have been hammering ALL these websites and still to no avail, am I able to JB my iPhone 3G(s) with iOS 4.0 !!!

      I have tried all the tricks of the trade that have been outlined all over in regards to downgrading to 3.1.2, 3.1.3 .. done this over and over, my SHSH are on record all the way back to 3.0 and I recovered ALL of them using the TinyUmbrella .. and NOTHING.

      My iPhone has iBoot 359.3 - Model # MB716LL - has been jailbroken through ALL versions from 3.0 on with either Blackra1n or sn0wbreeze.

      This new sn0wbreeze 1.6.1 works, I created my new custom IPSW without any problems .. but can someone tell me HOW THE F**K DO I GET IT ON MY PHONE ???????

      I have iTunes 9.2 .. I have tried in DFU mode, get error 1600 (and the fella before that wrote about using blackra1n and quickly removing plug and then burn firmware .. DON'T WORK) .. I have tried this is Recovery Mode, iTunes will sit there for 10 minutes stating "Preparing iPhone" .. the bam .. error 1604.

      SO again .. if someone has successfully done this WITHOUT any problems .. PLEASE SHARE WITH US HOW YOU DID IT.

      Thank you.

      If you have read carefully , they would have said current iOS JB methods such as pwnagetool and snowbreeze works for iphone 3G (yes without 's') previously NOT jailbroken by spirit

      From Apple.

      Error 1604: This error is often related to USB timing. Try changing USB ports, uninstalling and reinstalling USB ports, and other available USB troubleshooting steps (troubleshooting USB connections, device not recognized properly, computer won't recognize a FireWire or USB device). If you are using a dock, bypass it and connect directly to the USB 30-pin dock-connector cable. If the issue persists on a known-good computer, the device may need service.

      If the issue is not resolved by USB isolation troubleshooting, and another computer is not available, try these steps to resolve the issue:

      Connect the device to iTunes, confirm that the device is in Recovery Mode. If it's not in Recovery Mode, put it into Recovery Mode.
      Restore and wait for error 1604.
      When prompted, click OK.
      Close and re-open iTunes while iPhone remains connected.
      iPhone should now be recognized in Recovery Mode again.
      Try to restore again.
      If the steps above do not resolve the issue, try restoring using a known-good USB cable, computer, and network connection.

      BAOWEEZIE : read that line again .. it states I tried this in DFU and Recovery Mode .. read the complete paragraph.

      I have iPhone 3GS with 3.1.2 on it. I used blackra1n to jailbreak. What's the best way for me to update to 4.0 and then jailbreak? Who someone can help me out there. Thanks?

      if you are on windows and old bootrom , use snowbreeze or redsnow

      Can i just say. Snowbreeze is f*cking pointless. It only supports the bare minimum of devices and by the sounds of it, looks like one of the most complicated jailbrakes i've came across.

      I have the old bootrom 3GS, previously running 3.12 jailbroken and unlocked with blackra1n, 5.11.07. I successfully created the custom .ipsw with sn0wbreeze and when I go to restore with the custom firmware I get error code 2 when I'm in recovery mode and error code 1600 in DFU. I could not restore to this firmware so I recovered back to 3.12 and re-jailbroke. Any help on how I can get past these error codes so I can use 4.0???

      I have a factory unlocked 3GS and just updated to os4 with snowbreeze with custom firmware and had the no service problem (yes I clicked yes when it asks if i want to activate). Previous firmware I was on was 3.1.2. Couldn't figure out how to get service so I just restored to the 4.0 firmware and gonna use it for a couple days and see if theres a fix for jailbreak. Will downgrade to 3.1.2 again if nothing is updated in a few days

      so i still have the same problem. error 2 when trying to restore to ios 4. I have tried using iReb to get out of loop recovery mode, but to no avail. iReb suggests running redsnow, so i did that, but no luck. I even tried switching usb ports as the above post suggested, but when i did that I got error 1600. I've now tried every port on my computer. Anyone else have some ideas?
