  • Jailbreak iOS 5 GM with Latest Sn0wbreeze

    Disclaimer: Jailbreaking on the iOS 5 GM is done at your own risk.

    With the release of the iOS 5 GM, jailbreak users out there are eager to see if they can jailbreak their devices on this new firmware. ModMyi recently reported that the latest redsn0w is able to jailbreak the GM - now sn0wbreeze is in the same boat. iH8sn0w (@iH8sn0w) just released sn0wbreeze v2.8b8 to jailbreak the iOS 5 GM.

    The patch notes can be found below:

      Open tiny umbrella, click advanced. Deselect the box that says "set hosts to cydia on exit". Then close tiny umbrella and try the restore again.

      Don't do this if you have a iPhone 4 that you need to preserve baseband on though.

      For my 3GS I need to preserve the baseband to be able to unlock with Ultrasn0w. I got my 3GS before iPhones came to my network so I need to keep the baseband and use Ultrasn0w when they update it.

      so is safe to do it if you are a gavey user, I'm more pwnagetool cuz i use mac, but i will install a virtual machine or bootcamp to try this, another question it activates?? i don't got a developer account
