  • sn0wbreeze Jailbreaks iPhone OS 3.1.3 : blacksn0w & ultrasn0w Can Still Unlock


    UPDATE 3: iH8sn0w has fixed sn0wbreeze with its update to v1.4. The program is now compatible with old bootrom iPhone 3GS read our guide for more info and download links:
    http://modmyi.com/guides/how-jailbre...reeze-windows/


    UPDATE 2: iH8sn0w has removed his sn0wbreeze download until it is fixed for the iPhone 3GS. We'll update again when a fixed version is released . . .

    Cash UPDATE: I'm telling you now, don't bother with this right now. #1 3.1.3 isn't worth it. #2 sn0wbreeze isn't as finished as it should have been before they released it. Many of you will ignore our advice and do wtvr anyways so I WILL get a guide up, if I find a trick to making sn0wbreeze work! If I do make a guide, it WILL NOT be for the iPhone 3GS, after many repeated tries with different .ipsw files made with sn0wbreeze I am fairly convinced that sn0wbreeze is not compatible with 3GS 3.1.3 firmware.


    Well folks, that didn't take long at all. We now have the ability to jailbreak and unlock the iPhone on the new OS 3.1.3 only days after it's release. We have two options for different basebands, 04.26.08 and 05.11.07.

    Sn0wbreeze 3.1.3 can jailbreak iPhone 2G, 3G and iPhone 3GS (old bootrom only) on iPhone OS 3.1.3. (Guide to follow.) It also jailbreaks the iPod Touch 1G and iPod Touch 2G (model number not starting with MC). Baseband 04.26.08 can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w. If your baseband is 05.11.07, GeoHot's blacksn0w will work just the same as it did before. (That was released last year )

    For those of you that have never used any of these programs, please head over to our guides section. Note: We have NOT tested this method. Be smart. Don't do this unless you absolutely have to, or if you want to test and inform others of your success/failure stores Again, THIS IS FOR OLD BOOTROMS OF THE 3GS. If you have jailbroken 3.1.2 previously and the jailbreak was untethered you have the old bootrom. If you have a newer 3GS, just stay away.

    Cash EDIT/

    A couple notes. iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 2G users check your model number Settings -> General -> About. If it starts with MC don't try any 3.1.3 jailbreak.

    Next, for those of you that do not know, sn0wbreeze is a custom .ipsw creator for Windows much like the dev team's pwnagetool is for Mac. There are things you need to be aware of because of this. First of all grab the correct firmware for your device. Making a custom .ipsw for the wrong device will do you no good. Second the custom 3.1.3 firmware you create with sn0wbreeze is restored to your device via iTunes. Do not use DFU mode, normal recovery mode should be sufficient. Last and most important YOU CAN NOT restore the custom .ipsw that sn0wbreeze makes on to your device unless you device is ALREADY jailbroken. If you aren't jailbroken then jailbreak your current firmware (under 3.1.3) using the software of your choice (redsn0w, balckra1n, pwnagetool, wtvr), then create the custom 3.1.3 .ipsw with sn0wbird, then restore it on to your device using normal recovery mode and iTunes.

    After you have restored your custom 3.1.3 firmware on to your device you can unlock. iPhone 2G users search for bootneuter in cydia. Users with baseband 04.26.08 search for ultrasn0w in cydia. Baseband 05.11.07 users add the repo blackra1n.com to Cydia and search for blacksn0w.

    I have not tried this jailbreak yet so try at your own risk. We'll get a guide up asap assuming everything is working fine (read in 6 hrs when I wake up).

    /Cash EDIT

    Official 3.1.3 Firmware directly from Apple:
    Download iPhone 3.1.3 firmware for iPhone 2G
    Download iPhone 3.1.3 firmware for iPhone 3G
    Download iPhone 3.1.3 firmware for iPhone 3GS
    Download 3.1.3 firmware for iPod Touch 1G
    Download 3.1.3 firmware for iPod Touch 2G

    Download .NET Framework 3.5 (required to run Sn0wbreeze)

    Sn0wbreeze downloads all pulled. IF you find a download, don't use it. We will make a new news post if/when the program is fixed.

      Same thing here. I ordered mine online 2 weeks before the 3G(S) came out and got it on launch day, yet my model # starts with MC. I'm JB'd on 3.1.2 right now via Blackra1n untethered. Just like when 3.1 came out and redsn0w was making custom firmwares to JB it, I think I'll stick to what works until something more concrete surfaces.

      I have the same thing as you and like I said it doesn't make sence how they say it not to use this if it's MC

      Pretty fast, that's awesome. I don't really see a point in upgrading to 3.1.3 right now, there's nothing special about it unless you've had those 2 or 3 problems that it fixes. Great job though with the fast JB and Unlock.

      The MC thing about 3G[S]s is a typo. sn0wbreeze WILL work on 3G[S]s with the old bootrom. So as long as you have the old bootrom, you will be fine. Just asked iH8sn0w, and this is the official word.

      curious, why are you staying behind!? Mines done by DevTeam's mac program and running Firmware: 3.1.2 (7D11) Baseband: 04.26.08 ...I for one won't touch anything other than release's from DevTeam! So I won't be updating till they release something to the community.

      Same here...

      SO if this requires your iPhone to be already jailbroken, when you restore the custom firmware - does that mean you have to reinstall all your jailbreak apps or is all of that retained from you previous setup?

      Use aptbackup and u can restore all your jailbroken apps.

      I'll go with that too. And also, I don't really see any point in updating right now. The phone works perfectly, so why mess up with it. I'll wait for 4.0 (hopefully there will be some major updates on that, or else 3.1.2 is just fine!!!).

      Sn0wbreeze didn't work for me on the iPhone 2G, I tried it twice and kept on getting error from iTunes.

      Tried redsn0w just after and it worked like a charm.

      Cheers dev's.

      Sorry I recently updated my firmware to the new 3.1.3 without reading all these posts. Before this I used Blackra1n to jailbreak my 3GS phone. Is there any way I can re-jailbreak my phone. I use Windows OS. I would appreciate any advice, but please keep it simple as I am a complete novice.

      This question needs to be answered since a lot of folks are asking it.
      My model is MC135LL and it was purchased as a refurb on black Friday ($49.00 don't hate me) it is jailbroken with Blacka1n and I reboot it all the time and it remains jailbroken.

      So I had 3.1.2 jailbroken and my shsh registered with Cydia...having my phone jailbroken is pointless to me the only reason I have it jailbroken is because I can tether using mywi.....when I heard that you can tether without jailbreak and use native tethering I upgraded to 3.1.3 now not only do I have 3.1.3 I got baseband 05.12.01 ??? So now what am I screwed or possibly in near future a jailbreak will be available for 3gs with new baseband

      Use ROCK and all your Cydia & Rock apps are backed up and restore. Why bother using aptbackup? I've yet to get it working correctly and that in itself means it's problematic. Install ROCK and make voila!

      actually mine has the old boot rom and the set of numbers on mine are 47 so this is not accurate
