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.

I have been out of town for the past few days and haven't upgraded to 5.0 yet. Is it too late? I downloaded the 5.0 firmware from the apple server link, but it won't work. If I find it elsewhere, will it work? And if so, where can I find it? Thanks

I'd say both redsnow and snowbreeze are pretty easy to use and are self explanatory in what they are doing. Don't think I'd say snowbreeze is easier to use then redsnow, maybe the other way around if only jailbreaking is required.

I'm a redsn0w user myself, but just throwing that out there.

I think apple has stopped signing iOS 5.0. I have tried upgrading to it over the past 2 hours or so, with no luck. Says my device is ineligible
11-10-2011, 07:30 PM #12
Nobody should be on 5.0.1 anyway. If you're currently on 5.0.1 and are having trouble downgrading to 5.0, you should be trying harder to get to 5.0 while the signing window is still open. That's where the untether will be.

Also, all ipsw files are just a google search away...in case you don't want to be forces to update to 5.0.1
Are there any other dev team members on this forum besides MuscleNerd?

Open tiny umbrella
Click on advanced
deselect the box that says "set hosts to cydia on exit"
Close tiny umbrella and proceed with the restore
If you are an unlocker make sure to use a custom 5.0.

I actually find redsn0w to be easier to use. Sweet and Simple. I jailbreak a Verizon phone for a friend with sn0wbreeze and got confused fast. Too much going on in the UI IMO

I couldn't help upgrading to iOS5.0.1! I wanted those multitouch gestures the iPad2 has! I've been using them alot because my home button acts funky sometimes I'm willing to wait longer for an untether, I don't reboot that often for it to be a problem for me. I did hold off on upgrading my 3GS though. ? If you have 5.0 Ipswich saved, can't you restore to it at anytime? Do you need an Internet connection to restore if you already have the firmware and iTunes installed on your pc?

Updated 5.0.1 earlier today just after it became available on my 4S hoping it fixes the battery drain. Now I hear the untether will be for 5.0. Oh well I can live without a jailbreak for a while.
