  • 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.

      No, you have to restore to a 'snowed' 3.1.3 or 3.1.2, and then upgrade to a 'snowed' (Custom) 4.0. If you're also on 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 Jailbroken (Not including SPIRIT!!) then you have just to get a custom 'snowed' 4.0 and shift+restore to it.

      Mmy undersstanding is that you restore to standard OS4, then use snowbreeze to create a custom IPSW. You then shift restore that using iTunes. Trouble is, I can't get that last part to work for me
      Restore to an Original Stock Apple 4.0, and then use LATEST Redsn0w!

      Update to a standard 4.0 and then use the latest Redsn0w from www.redsn0w.com
      EASIER!

      sorry for more post snow-io4 jb questions. but after you successfully restore the phone to the cooked ios4 ipsw, when you connect your phone to itunes, does it ask "do you want this to be ____ iphone or setup as a new iphone"? and is that when you would be able to sync back some of the data(photos,apps etc). I want to be able to sync somethings but not others like cydia apps. Since there are so many issues. i would want to be able to start fresh with all cydia stuff.

      It'll restore:
      SMS History
      Call History
      Photos

      nothing for cydia is supported by iTunes.

      ahh, duh i knew that. lol sorry, just had my head wrapped up from reading 21 pages lol.
      so does itunes ask you to set it up as the existing phone or as a new phone? Is that what everyone is seeing? And then you say set it up as the existing iphone and you can sync all your regular stuff back including legit apps.

      MultiTasking can be enabled using redsn0w.

      SPIRIT is a userland JB. Basically it works completely different from pwnage, redsn0w, sn0wbreeze and the "break" is closed when going to iOS 4.

      Trust me, I'm not happy about it either! My original 3Gs that I got on launch day last year bit it a couple weeks ago.

      Now, I have a NEW BOOTROM 3Gs on 3.1.3 that I had to JB with Spirit (only option :/)

      We just sit and wait, and wait, and wait.

      @Luke, cydia apps don't really sync, you would have to trigger an action to make all previous cydia apps be installed, say if u were using Rock restore backups or aptbackup I believe

      It does not matter if you are MC or MB. I am MB and apparently have the NEW bootrom

      I have IBOOT --359.3.2

      OLD is just 359.3

      To find out in windows, put phone in DFU mode (google if u dont know how) and then go into device manager.

      In device manager look under Universal Serial Bus controllers, than Apple Mobile Device USB Driver,

      than, right click and open Properties,details, than Device Instance Path, go to the very end of the Value and read your IBOOT
