  • 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.

      Since I can't have Cydia store my SHSH cause apple doesn't sign for my firmware anymore. (only able to get my ECID but no SHSH)
      Seems like I meet all the other requirements:
      3GS non MC model number, old bootrom 359.3, and never used spirit.

      My question is, if I jailbreak to IOS4, would I be able to jailbreak future updates without SHSH from older firmwares?


      anyone?? help pls.

      Hi guys, i red the whole thread, and I found a step by step tutorial "how to uprgade to 4.0 who 3.1.3 spirit JB 3Gs old bootrom have".

      But I have actually one problem on the start already

      I know I need to downgrade my FW to 3.1.2 (becouse I need the older baseband for the new Custom FW Snowbreeze)

      When I try to SHIFT+Restore to the original/general 3.1.2 fw(iPhone2,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw), the iTunes wrote an error message:
      "The iPhone could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build"

      It seems that the iTunes check from the Apple server and not from saurik's server.

      I wrote the line in the host file already some months ago, in my cydia I can read on the top in green colour: "The device has SHSHs on file for iPhone OS: 3.1.3" but before I upgraded to 3.1.3 in the Cydia was: "The device has SHSHs on file for iPhone OS: 3.1.2". So I think I saved correctly my shshs to saurik

      Please mr proffesionals helf me to solve this problem! MrDmias i see you know everything, say me what do I wrong. It seems like I dont put the "74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com" line in my hosts file, but I did.

      I waiting your opinion

      thanks
      Do you have your blobs saved in cydia?

      Best method I can suggest for you is like this:
      First you update to STOCK Standard 4.0 from itunes.
      Then, use LATEST Redsn0w 0.9.5 to JB it!

      Serial has nothing to do with it either the 4th and 5th digit of mine are 17 and I have the new bootrom.

      If you've got the new bootrom then, currently you've got no chance to have the 4.0 JBed.
      we'll keep waiting for a new tool.

      Put your iPhone into DFU mode. (Below the method how to put your iPhone into DFU in case you don’t know)

      Connect your phone to your desktop and open iTunes.
      Press and Hold the HOME button and Sleep/Wake button.
      After 10 seconds, release the Sleep/Wake button and continue holding the Home button until iTunes pops up saying that your iPhone is in Recovery mode.
      But at the moment, your iPhone should be in black screen.
      Then go to Control Panel –> System –> Hardware – >Device Manager

      Look for “Apple Mobile Device USD Driver” inside of “Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller”

      Right click “Properties”, inside “Detail” tab, scroll down the dropdown list select “Device Instance Path”. You should able to find the bootrom version from the long string. It looks something like iBoot-359.x.

      Check your model number....if it begins with "MC" then you have the new bootrom if it is not "MC" then you have an older bootrom also check the 4th and 5th number in you serial number if it is lower then 40 then you have an old bootrom.

      settings, general, about........scroll down to model number and check.............. mine is MC131C (new bootrom) and check serial number as well... my serial is new bootrom ***43****** the first two numbers in the serial are the factory numbers, the third number is the year it was made and the two numbers following those numbers are the week of that year it was made.

      Hope this helps.
