  • Sn0wbreeze v2.8b11 Now Available Supports iOS 5.0.1

    Sn0wbreeze v2.8b11 Now Available!

    iOS 5.0.1 was Apple's answer to the battery problems plaguing iOS 5. Although, it has been reported that iOS 5.0.1 doesn't seem to be fixing the problem at all. iOS 5.0.1 also plugs up some important jailbreak exploits that hackers are working on using to develop the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5. Since it plugs up those exploits, Pod2g recommended not upgrading so that you can remain on the firmware that will support the untethered jailbreak when it comes out. If, however, you're too late and you've installed iOS 5.0.1 and are having trouble downgrading, you can still have a tethered jailbreak for your device. iH8sn0w tweeted just a few minutes ago that sn0wbreeze has been updated to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1.

    Sn0wbreeze 2.8b11 can be downloaded here. This jailbreak tool only supports Windows and is not for Mac. Mac users can use redsn0w to jailbreak their iOS 5.0.1 device; Windows users can choose between this tool or redsn0w. Like I mentioned in the last news article that I wrote about sn0wbreeze, I feel that sn0wbreeze is an easier tool to use because of the pictures and better directions which take you step by step. This is a great way for new jailbreakers to understand how jailbreaking works. It seems more simple than redsn0w. While redsn0w has less steps involved, it doesn't really explain anything, you generally need to read a guide to learn how to use it, or have previous experience. Yet with sn0wbreeze you can be totally new to jailbreaking and understand what it's telling you to do because of the visuals.

    The GUI looks the same as before:


    Whats New in Version 2.8b11?
    • Supports iOS 5.0 (9A334)/5.0.1 (9A405)
    • Fixed iBooks sandbox crashing issues (as of 2.8b9).
    • Fixed location services issues with iPhone 3GS users running the iPad baseband (as of 2.8b9).
    • Re-added iPad baseband install option to iPhone 3GS.
    • Tethered devices are booted via iBooty which is extracted to the Desktop after running sn0wbreeze.

    Old bootrom iPhone 3GS's can still have the untethered jailbreak. Anything newer is still tethered. The whole pastie by iH8sn0w can be read here.

      If they have stopped signing 5.0 you can't restore to it.

      so the point in a untethered 5.0 jailbreak would be for only those on a unjailbroken 5.0 thus far???? or would it even work? i have never seen apple stop signing firmware so quickly, sucks!

      Redsn0w
      + Powerful AIO tool. (thanks to the added "Extra" option menu.)
      + Simple and fast (straight to the point.)

      Sn0wbreeze
      + More friendly user interface.
      + Have the option to play Pac-man.
      + Easily shareable.
      - Require a full restore.
      - Need to make a custom firmware in order to enter "PWN DFU" mode. (no option to skip)
      FYI, you can just click on iREB menu on top of Sn0wbreeze to enter PWN DFU mode.

      Anyone who has 5.0 (Jailbroken or not) should be able to untether - I am not sure what your point is?

      i'm on 5.0 tethered and cannot go to 5.0 non-jailbroken or a full restore which i need to do because i have a bug that is making my home button not work. the original firmware i used and then jailbroke with redsnow is telling me it's ineligible.

      The untether is not available yet. If you are on 5.0 when it is you will be able to untether provided you have a working phone.

      I used redsn0w and I really don't see how it could be made any simpler... As for the untether, how often do you really need to reboot. I havn't had to tether my iPad to reboot it more than 2 or 3 times since iOS 5 was released.

      after upgrading to ios 5 i lose my WIFI after i have gone out of range and the only way to get it back is by rebooting the phone (3gs)
      i have seen many other complaints about this on ios 5 does anyone know of a fix or something from cydia or anything i can do to stop this hapenning?

      3g is very expensive when you go over your crappy 250meg limit and i dont always notice that the wifi has done one!

      any ideas?

      what happens when the "untether" does come out for iOS 5.0 and I'm still in a lower firmware(4.2.8), how will I go about going to 5.0?
