  • Sn0wbreeze 2.9.4 Released


    The popular Windows jailbreaking client dubbed sn0wbreeze by iOS hacker iH8sn0w has been updated with support for for the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak, which was released earlier today with the Chronic Dev Teamís Absinthe jailbreak tool. The update includes support for version 5.0 of the Apple TV 2 software, includes some minor bug fixes, and has some user interface changes.

    Sn0wbreeze is for Windows only, so Linux and Mac users will not be able to use it. Contrastingly, the Absinthe alternative works on Windows already and also has support for Linux and Mac users. Unfortunately, sn0wbreeze is only capable of jailbreaking non-A5/A5X devices because A5 and A5X devices do not yet have a low-level DFU or iBoot exploit, which sn0wbreeze requires in order to work as intended.

    Whatís more is that the newest release of sn0wbreeze doesnít untether the recent minor update to iPhone 4 GSM models. The iPhone 4 GSM model can be jailbroken untethered on the specific firmware iOS 5.1.1 (9B206), however if you werenít aware, Apple released a slightly tweaked version of the iOS 5.1.1 firmware for the iPhone 4 GSM model just earlier today, dubbed firmware iOS 5.1.1 (9B208).

    If you want to use the updated version of sn0wbreeze to jailbreak your non-A5/A5X device, feel free to download the free software from iH8sn0wís blog. However, Absinthe is currently the easiest way to jailbreak any iOS 5.1.1 device at this point in time as it simply requires the press of a jailbreak button and some patience.

      I don't understand why one would use sn0wbreeze. Too much restoring and errors and recboot. Why would I go through the whole sn0wbreeze process when I can use 1-click Absinthe?

      iH8sn0w should discontinue sn0wbreeze and work alongside Musclenerd to make redsnow even better

      You guys seem to be forgetting those of us who preserve basebands.

      You can create baseband-less ipsw with redsn0w.

      As long as you know how to use redsn0w correctly. It will leave the baseband untouched. You make the no baseband file in it, iTunes that NOBB file onto your phone. Then run it in redsn0w. I did like sn0wbreeze but past few firmwares it seemed buggy and slow and using redsn0w my phone seemed to work a little better. But guess it's always good to have more than one set of people working on jailbreaks.

      its just personal preference, use whatever you jailbreaking program you like.
      what ever floats your boat. The choice if which one to use comes down to your personal situation.
      I use sn0wbreeze instead of redsn0w because redsn0w cant create a custom firmware with an Increased partition. Sometimes i use my idevice for pentesting hence why i need the increase partition for installing alot of tools.

      I like Sn0wbreeze cuz it's an all-in-one, you can upgrade your firmware and jb at the same time, especially since I don't really upgrade my fw til the day the jb comes out.

      not only for preserving base bands, i for one cannot use redsn0w or absinthe on my iPhone 3gs (old bootrom) because it requires preserving of baseband AND hacktivation.
      hacktivation is only provided by sn0wbreeze, as far as i know.
      pls correct me if I'm wrong.

      I believe redsn0w still offers hacktivation and will also fix 6.15 location services problems using tricks during hacktivation. The only difference between the two for your case is:
      1) sn0wbreeze jailbreaks and retains baseband in one step (just restore and be done), but IIRC does not fix 6.15 LS prob
      2) redsn0w requires at least two steps to work (restore with NO_BB firmware, then rerun RS to jailbreak & hacktivate), but fixes the LS issue on 6.15 basebands.

      I believe so. You can only hactivate with sn0wbreeze. I like it better for same reason--an all- in-one tool upgrade, stitch shsh, hacktivate, preserve bb and jb With redsn0w i have to remember what to do first and sometimes it wont do both bc bugs i do appreciate having more than one way of cooking an egg though Thanks iIHasn0w and the CDT.

      I'll wait for the latest update of redsn0w. I want to preserve my baseband. (for resale - I'm waiting for the new iPhone before getting rid of my iPhone 4.

      IMHO, Redsn0w works better for me than Sn0wbreeze, because Redsn0w has more options, even though Sn0wbreeze is easier to use. It is also not buggy either. I'm hoping Redsn0w will work with the new Apple update for the A4 GSM devices.

      What exactly are you waiting for? The latest version of redsn0w can preserve the baseband on 5.1.1.

      People are forgetting why sn0wbreeze is so cool...Pacman!

      looks like Apple aint signing the firmware iOS 5.1.1 (9B206) anyway can we downgrade to iOS 5.1.1 (9B206) from the Apple update firmware build iOS 5.1.1 (9B208),
