  • 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.

      Hi, I had a blackra1n JB that was forced to upgrade to 3.1.3

      As far as I'm reading and understand this much
      1. blackra1n does not work (yup black screen and everything)
      2. sn0wbreeze does not work either? (I cant even download this one right now so if it doesnt work tell me if i need to keep trying)

      What WILL JB and UL and make my phone where i can install my themes again? thank you

      ok i gave up on trying jb my iphone for a little while to see if someone could figure out how to jb on a windows computer. couldnt find anything yet but still trying to figure this out. I am on the 3.1.3 updates and will be using win xp, win vista, or win 7. not sure exactly yet. I have the iphone 3G and would really like to have my cydia back. I do miss the world of modification.

      Below is the link to the guide on unlocking your 3G. I've tried it (both on a previously JB iphone and one that has never been JB and they are both now happily jailbroken, and on 3.1.3 )so I know it works both on win 7 and S'leopard. I used my MBP (which has both OS) to jailbreak both and the second one was synced back to a win 7 pc (as that's it's normal syncing pc).

      I dont think that is going to work...i do have the iphone 3g and it already has the 3.1.3 firmware installed without a jailbreak. this tutorial says not to upgrade to the 3.1.3 firmware on the iphone 3g. If I am not mistaken I have tried this method and failed miserably. I appreciate the help but if there is another method i would really like to know...the iphone is way boring sitting stock and unmodded. i have read other forums saying that pwnage tool can do such a jb for the 3.1.3 firmware if anyone knows about this please let me know. i am very bored with my phone now and would love to have my cydia app reinstalled asap.

      Have a little faith mate... I did this proceedure as of Friday 26th and I kid you not! I KNOW IT WORKS...as long as your iphone 3G is still functional and you can make and receive calls on it in it's present state. You just HAVE to read the instructions mate

      The only thing you won't be able to do yet is unlock it to use any sim (incase you need and unlock cos of the updated baseband 05.12.01)...

      Step 1: Since your iphone is already on 3.1.3, download the 3.1.2 firmware for the 3G, and save to a location you can find (i.e. desktop)

      Step 2: Download the redsnow tool via the links on that page (save on desktop so you can easily find it).

      Step 3: Backup your data if you need to (especially if you've made recent changes).

      Step 4: Once all that's done, close itunes, switch off your iphone and fire up redsnow with your phone still connected to your laptop. Click browse and point redsnow to the 3.1.2 firmware you downloaded.

      Step 4b: Cydia should ALREADY be selected...leave it that way and click next

      Step 5: Once redsnow identifies the firmware,Follow the instructions and hold down first the sleep button, and then the home button, and let it do it's thing...it should all take a couple of minutes and you're done!

      Step 6: Re-start itunes ONLY AFTER the iphone has completely finished and rebooted....now all you have to do is resync your data and when you're done, start Cydia, update it and reinstall all your previous/ desired apps.

      Ilaw-one, does your guide work for 3g iphones that have the new bootrom? I know that you said u tried it on the 26th, but was it with a phone recently purchased (most likely new rom) or a phone you've had for awhile?

      The 3G (not the 3GS) does not have issues with the bootrom, SHSH files, tethering, and that stuff. As long as a jb is available from any of the various methods (3.1.3 and below), it can be done. Unlocking still requires (5.11.x baseband and below).

      Don't confuse the 3GS issues and problems with the older 3G version (or 1st generation 2G)

      Check-out iClarified for great tutorials on 3G (not 3GS) jb'ing and/or unlocking.

      hmm when I use the latest version of snowbreeze it always gives me a 1604 error when I try to restore. What is this caused by if not rom?
    1. Mes's Avatar

      ^try using iReb by iH8sn0w. It helps to by-pass most of the 16xx errors and many others. Follow the instructions carefully.

      If iReb doesn't work, u need to provide a lot more details to get intelligent replies

      nvm I got it to work using Ilaw-one's guide (OMFG THANK YOU SO MUCH). Must be something wrong with snowbreeze. Btw before this I tried it with IReb too, it didn't work. Oh well.

      @ hwhw...Glad to hear you've now got your iphone working the way it was meant to be Sorry I couln't respond to your previous questions (been quite busy lately)

      To all those having similar issues, I would personally NOT recommend any other tool(s) for JB'ing 3G except redsnow or any other tool released by the DevTeam (they deserve the credit for all their hard work plus I've never had issues with any of their tools), and going thru the steps as detailed in my earlier posts which incidentally was originally posted on this site under guides...

      The only thing is that firmware 05.12.01 cannot as yet be unlocked so DO NOT follow the guide if you require an unlock to use any sim, as this process upgrades your rom to 05.09...however, any boot rom CAN be jailbroken on the 3G and you don't require any SHSH signing.
