  • 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.

      cheers

      But (for my sorry) you can't go ahead from 3.0 to 4.0, you should pass over a Jailbroken 3.1.2 or 3.1.3. (NOT WITH SPIRIT!!) so you have to check out if you've got your blobs for that.

      Hi there! I have an iPod Touch 2G, MC model.
      My question is... SHOULD I KILL MYSELF?
      Come on! What's the deal with these models? How come it's so hard to jailbreak these?
      I had 3.1.2, and lovely jailbroken.
      Now I update it to 4.0, and it turs out that the only new thing I have is a funny folder thingy.

      When is the jailbreak for MC models going to be available, and why does it take them so long?

      Why is it that we who have the newer 3GS' with the newer bootroms/MC models seem to always get the short end of the stick?

      First off I'd like to say that I'm extremely grateful for all involved to get these jailbreaks available but why not release a version for the newer 3GS' along side with the older models or wait until a unified version is working?

      Sorry if I'm ranting, but once again I feel left out....

      Press thanks if I deserve it!
      Why does it state MC iphones cant be jailbroken in the first post then?

      Hi guys, question:

      I have a 3GS recently bought, it seems to be jailbroken through Spirit.

      It has 3.1.2 and BB 5.11. The SHSH are saved for 3.1.3.

      The iBoot is 359.3.2

      So how can I have iOS4? or even, how can I restore it with a custom 3.1.3 ipsw? (you know, in case I want to reintall it)

      So there is no way to do that with the new iBoot, right?

      Thanks!

      For more information check out Redmond Pie.com, its a great website for jailbreak info and tutorials for all you n00b5
      Mines mc and can be jailbroke so not all mc are new bootrom. So why dont you do some research befor slating people

      I've jailbroken my phone using Redsnow, but I don't have the MMS feature anymore. When I restore the phone i have it, but when i jailbrake it, I no longer have it. Have rebooted a half dozen times and still nothing. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and if Snowbreeze does the same thing.

      Setup
      iPhone 3G
      iOS 4.0
      Model MB702LL
      Carrier AT&T 7.0

      Or are you saying its just for 4.0?
      I'm talking about 4.0.

      I upgraded to 4.0 and I've got the newest bootrom so at the moment I'm running a legit iPhone. Why can't all you n00b5 just wait until there is a device wide jailbreak instead of jumping the gun and possibly bricking your phones because you don't know what your doing, just ******* wait a few days

      This is what pisses me off as i have a new iPhone 3Gs (meaning new Bootrom) so im stuck on 3.1.3 Spirit JB and not able to use all the cool tools to JB 4.0 because there are no exploits made public

      I believe GeoHot and The Dev Team both have ground breaking exploits for the new Bootrom, if only they would just release them for others or a jailbreak for it then it would all be good instead of seeing this list all the time:

      iPhone 3GS (old bootrom, non MC model, not spirit jailbroken)
      iPhone 3G (might require DFU,)
      iPod 2G (non MC model, not spirit jailbroken)

      I know i can't say too much as i am not developing these Jailbreaks and i support them all the way and appreciate the time it takes to come up with this kind of software that works without fail 100% of the time but i can rant with my fury can i not?

      You should ONLY restore (Shift+Restore) To a CUSTOM 4.0 made with Sn0wBreeze or PwnageTools! not a stock (apple original) 4.0!

      Press Thanks! If Its worth it!

      If I'm still on 3.0 do I need to upgrade to 3.1.2 before using snowbreeze to jailbreak 4.0. Read a few different tutorials that say from 3.1.2.
