  • Sn0wbreeze Gets iOS 6.0 & iOS 6.0.1 Support


    ih8sn0w has announced via a Tweet on Twitter that sn0wbreeze has been updated to version 2.9.7 and now supports iOS 6.0 and iOS 6.0.1 tethered jailbreaks on the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 4G. Old Bootrom iPhone 3GS models will be untethered, as usual. Sn0wbreeze cannot be used to give us a jailbreak on any A5 or newer iOS device.

    The tethered jailbreak means that you will have to connect your device to the computer and boot tethered each time you want to restart the device into a jailbroken state.

    This update brings sn0wbreeze completely up to date on iOS firmware and now gives Windows users a choice to use either sn0wbreeze or redsn0w to jailbreak their limera1n devices on iOS 6. Mac users will need to use redsn0w since sn0wbreeze is not available on the Mac. Users may find that redsn0w is still much quicker and to the point with the whole jailbreak process.

    ih8sn0w mentions that if you’re on Windows 8, then you’ll need to use a workaround to use sn0wbreeze on your computer. Windows 7 users won't have any issues and it will run just like any other version of sn0wbreeze.

    You can download the sn0wbreeze 2.9.7 update here and find additional information about the update on ih8sn0w's blog.

      maybe they should stop making JB's for this phones and concentrate on the NEW,,, they have the iPad 3/4/mini and iphone 5.

      otherwise it can be said that JB its dead as of now.
      I kinda agree. Can you imagine the sale of more iphone 5s if the only jailbreak was for the iPhone 5?

      yep. I swear people that are just getting into the jailbreak game have no patience. they really havent seen how long we've had to wait for jailbreaks before and when it comes down too it. You dont need a jailbreak for your phone! its convenient and helpful but you dont need it! Really just be patient....

      Jailbreaking may not be dead....but sadly, it is dying. I know this is hard reality to accept, and most of us do not want to believe its true (myself included). But the fact is we do not have a jailbreak, and unless the devs are being super tight lipped (which I doubt, as they like to reassure us a Jailbreak will be coming whenever possible), it doesn't seem like one is coming anytime soon.

      The Devs have communicated to us in the past how much Apple has stepped up their game in regards to security, aka jailbreaking. I can only assume Apple has gone even further with the lockdown of their latest creations. The fact that we still aren't even close to a jailbreak proves this assumption.

      The Devs work on older phones is much appreciated, and is amazing work...Anyone with a brain realizes that. With that being said, that work (the updated redsn0w for example) actually makes me loose more hope on a current jailbreak being released. It just makes it seem to me that they are stuck, and are doing other projects like perfecting the existing jailbreaks as they wait for someone to find a Cure for iOS.

      I have no doubt that eventually, there will be a jailbreak. But I'm no longer so sure that we will see that jailbreak while it is relevant. Before we know it we will have the next iphone, with new hardware, new software, and new and even more improved security.

      A future of only stock iOS...

      I pray that I am wrong...

      Why do you say we aren't even close to a jailbreak? There is currently a failbreak, which does have some usable exploits. P0sixninja is working on dumping the bootrom, which could make it much easier to find potential bootrom exploits, and while other hackers may not have said anything, I doubt any of them have just given up on finding more fun exploits.

      Most of this is speculation. I would say jailbreaking wont die until our hackers become fed up with their talented hobbies of being hackers.

      tethered jailbreak requires you to hook up your iPhone to a computer every time you turn it off, untethered doesn't.

      Don't steal things and you wont have problems. That is NOT what a jailbreak is for.

      Nothing. We don't discuss that here, which is why it is censored. Sorry.
