  • 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.

      Yea I'm gonna wait.. I think everyone else should wait as well until all the bugs are out of the box.... this is the fastest jailbreak I have seen shorty after the release of an updated firmware from Snapple.....


      Basically- just be smart about it..Im just glad the dev team and others can continue to stick to Apple and all his henchmen....

      As I have always said- STEVE JOBS if you dont like ppl jb the phone then open it up to where ppl can do what they want in the first place.. If not I'll just do whats best for me....

      This is confusing. Does sn0wbreeze downgrade your baseband? This doesn't seem likely. I have a 3G that is on 3.1.3 with a 5.12.xx baseband and the guide on the first page doesn't address this baseband (only 4.26 and 5.11). What's the word on the updated baseband?

      I've used it before and found it often fails - it also results of some apps loosing all thier settings

      Will Rock backup JB apps installed with Cydia prior?

      Okay so if the phone is already been updated to 3.1.3 (and thus updated the baseband) you're SOL, correct? I bought a 3G that was already on 3.1.3 and it has the updated baseband.

      I think this article needs to include that this only works if you're using the custom firmware. Its NOT a solution for people who have already updated to 3.1.3.

      IMHO this is not something I would try on my phone.
      It looks like the author hasn't tried much either - a very poor, untested hack that will work for some but can't be recommended.

      I'm sooooooooo confused and frustrated. I just bought the Iphone 3GS yesterday off of a friend and it is firmware 3.1.3, model starts with MC and 5.12.01. I want to just unlock it and use it for T-mobile. Should I just return it and get my money back? I don't know what to do and I'm not that iphone savvy to fully understand what you all are talking about. Can anyone explain this to me in dummy terms lol.?

      hope this wasn't the only exploit, now apple will be able to patch it for the real upgrade in 4.0! there isn't anything new in 3.1.3 why the **** would you waste an exploit on a boring upgrade! POINTLESS stay on 3.1.2 and enjoy your phone until 4.0

      Is there any estimated time frame on when they'll be an unlock available? I just want to know if I should return this iphone. This seems really confusing to me.

      Yes, you should prolly return it. This exploit is will not work on iPhones that have already been upgraded to 3.1.3 via iTunes. In order for this to work, you have to be on 3.1.2 and get sn0wbreeze to make you custom 3.1.3 firmware that doesn't upgrade your baseband. If you're baseband is 5.12.01 (which you say it is), you can NOT unlock it right now. Possibly in the future but not now. So unless you want a fancy iPod touch until 5.12.01 is unlockable, I'd return it.
