  • 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 might want to try iRecovery to get out of Recovery loop and try again.

      Beware if you're on Vista or Windows 7 its kind of tricky with that libusb driver. You might want to use VMware and do it in OSX or XP, if you are experienced with VMware.

      iPhone 3GS
      Was on 3.1.3 w/Spirit
      Bootrom:359.3

      I Used RedSn0w 92,used 3.1.2 to create a custom Firmware..it threw my phone into a Blank screen but i was still LIT.(not DFU and Not Recovery)

      Then i Used snowbreeze 1.6.1 to make a custom iOS4 firmware...(while still in that Blank Screen)

      I've used a jailbreak method that I don't remember, blackra1n and spirit on my 3GS (in that order).

      My model number starts with MB, not MC, so I probably have the old bootrom if I'm reading the intel correctly.

      I might just wait for my iPhone4 in the mail. That might be the safe thing to do.

Will downgrade to 3.1.2 again if nothing is updated in a few days
      Me too. I solved it by installing UltraSnow 0.9.3 from Cydia.
      Add source in Cydia "repo666.ultrasn0w.com" and search for UltraSnow 0.9.3. Install it. Voila, Service is Back.
      I was also factory Unlocked but was scr*** with the Pwned FW.

      Hi guys!
      I read and read again and got to the conclusion that I'm not in because of the iboot. I got a picture from f0recast attached. Can you confirm that I cannot upgrade to iOS4?

      Thank You.

      Hey Sinful Iphone has a jailbreak for most models 3G,3Gs iphone 2G,ipod and ulocks work as well, all functions work, multitasking works winterboard works all 4.0 functions work its way better then redsnow 0.9.5 beta and this snowbreeze witch is limited for only 3Gs this is the best so far.

      I got two questions,

      1. when i do this jailbreak, do i have to be on the iOS4, then restore with the custom firmware that sn0wbreeze provides or do i have to be on 3.1.2- jailbroken, then upgrade directly to the custom firmware??

      2. i see a lot of confusion about the whole MC thing, as long as i know i have the old bootrom, does the MC on my 3GS matter?? i ask this because my 3GS is a MC model however, although i am not sure what my bootrom is, when i was on 3.1.2 i easily was able to jailbreak with either redsn0w or blackra1n...doesn't that mean i do have the older bootrom?? I have never jailbroken with Spirit.

      thank you for any help on this matter and sorry if my questions seem a bit naive

      These are the only ways to check your BootRom for sure.

      Method 1
      Put into DFU mode, robotic instructions here: DFU Mode | jailbreakmatrix.com, lol.
      On your computer... Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager
      Find "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller", subitem Apple Mobile Device USB Driver.
      Right click, choose Properties, go to Details, select
      Device Instance Path from the dropdown box. The end of this info string will tell you the bootrom version, e.g. iBoot-359.3.2

      iBoot-359.3.2 is the NEW BOOTROM
      iBoot-359.3 is the OLD BOOTROM

      Method 2
      Install usbview link: http://www.ftdichip.com/Resources/Utilities/usbview.zip
      Put the iPhone 3GS in DFU Mode DFU Mode | jailbreakmatrix.com
      Run the Application usbview
      Check if you find:

      iBoot-359.3.2 - then its the new bootrom
      iBoot-359.3 - is the old one

      FINALLY .. FIGURE IT OUT AND EVERYTHING IS WORKING .. NOW RUNNING iOS 4.0 JB VIA sn0wbreeze.

      What I did to accomplish this:

      1. Used TinyUmbrella to obtain my SHSH from Cydia for v3.1.2
      2. Downloaded the original v3.1.2 from Apple for the iPhone 3G(s)
      3. Still using TinyUmbrella, started TSS Server
      4. Executed iTunes 9.2 and placed iPhone into Recovery Mode
      5. shift+Restore .. selected the original v3.1.2 firmware
      6. Although iTunes errored with 1015, exited out and executed Blackra1n
      7. Blackra1n successful, iPhone rebooted, verified v3.1.2 was installed and jailbroken.
      8. Executed iTunes 9.2 again
      9. Placed iPhone into Recovery Mode again
      10. shift+Restore and this time selected my "sn0wbreeze_iPhone 3GS.ipsw" which I had created before from the original iOS 4.0
      11. Waited, chewing nails and picking nose ...
      12. SUCCESS .. iOS 4.0 JB via sn0wbreeze 1.6.1 is now up and running with my iPhone.

      I have 359.3.2 just found out..
      So it means that I have to wait until Geohot will move his ars back to USA and start working to something? I saw on his tweets that he is not working on anything right now and that he is not planning anything yet..

      Thanks by the way

      My model number is MC but my 4th/5th number in my serial is 32, and i currently have an untethered Jailbreak on my 3.1.2, so I'm assuming it'll work for me....
