  • 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 can restore to 3.13 but would need an official SIM to activate, then you can JB with Spirit and unlock with UltraSn0w.

      I dont know what you mean by non mc model means because I have a MC model. I didnt JB for weeks cuz I read that. Use idetector on sn0breezes website to figure out if you have the old bootrom. I JB just fine with a MC model

      And how can I do to restore to 3.1.3? I currently have 3.1.2

      Do I need to download the firmware and use it without touching it with sn0wbreeze?

      1) I mean I download the 3.1.3 frimware.
      2) I do the host file trick with saurik server
      3) I hit shift + restore on itunes

      Would it work?

      And after that I would just need to activate with the original sim (or a tool like the old blackra1n )

      Thanks!

      You can not activate 3.13 with any tool - you need a SIM from the original carrier.
      I would never let Sn0wbreeze near an ipsw and you certainly don't need too to use Spirit.

      I'm just trying to get thing clear. Becuase I bought my 3gs, and it was already jailbroke. It seems they used spirtit.
      But they should have the right sim, activate the phone and then run sipirt. And they saved the shsh but for 3.1.3

      Now I'm trying to understand what can and what I cant do if I would like to restore it someday.

      Without an hactivation I'm doomed, but if somedy creates one, my question is:

      If I download the 3.1.3 can I in some way upgrade my phone to it in order to have it fully restored?
      Thanks.

      You can restore to a 3.1.3 whenever you want or need to, BUT!, you should have an original carrier's SIM (most probably AT&T) in order to Activate it, you can fine it on eBay for cheap!

      Wonderful! That's a begining =)

      So if I make the host file trick then I would be able to restore, right?

      But I currently have 3.1.2, so which would be the steps?
      I mean:
      1) download the firmware?
      2) edit the host file
      3) hit shift restore or shift udate on itunes?

      Do you have a good tutorial for this at hand?

      Also I live in Uruguay, I dont know the iphone carrier, I think is Argentina's "Personal" company. If I get one, does it matter that the sim will not work here in my country?

      Thanks for all!!

      I have the new one iBoot 359.3.2.

      I have 3.1.2 and I'd like to upgrade to 3.1.3.

      Well not really want to upgrade, I just finding out what posibilities I have to restore my phone one day if I want.

      Just like my previous 3G, that I could reinstall it when it started to get slow, you know.

      Thanks.

      You can restore to any FW you have your blobs for see Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik)
      Your BB can not be downgraded - at the moment this does not matter as all BB for the 3G / 3GS can be unlocked as of 1/7/2010 - this is likely to change when a new update is released.
      An official SIM will activate regardless of whether it works in your country.

      It will, restore (update) to an Official (Stock) 4.0 firmware using iTunes, and all you have to do then is to run Redsn0w 0.9.5 (latest) and jailbreak your iphone, then go to Cydia, \Manage\Sources, click on repo666.ultrasn0w.com source and install UltraSn0w 0.93, and you'll have your device unlocked for any GSM.
