If you have been a jailbreak fan for quite some time now, then you are no doubt familiar with the most prominent members of the jailbreak community. Some of them have provided the appropriate tools in order to make life easier for every jailbreak enthusiast. And one of the most famous hacker that graces the jailbreak community is definitely iH8sn0w, responsible for various jailbreak tools such as Sn0wbreeze, iREB and iFaith. Now on its 2nd birthday, iH8snow updates Sn0wbreeze in order to support untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1.
That's right, it has been two years since the Sn0wbreeze tool has been providing jailbreak solutions to Windows users. Sn0wbreeze became relevant to the jailbreak community because iH8sn0w took the time to integrate some of his jailbreak tools into it such as iFaith and iREB. This provided a sort of an all-in-one jailbreak solution to users. Another notable aspect of Sn0wbreeze is its unique and eye-catching user interface. And for its 2nd birthday, Sn0wbreeze has become a lot more better than ever and now supports untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1.
From iH8sn0w blog:
sn0wbreeze v2.9 [Two year anniversary]
- Happy birthday sn0wbreeze!
- Brought back old firmware support in one release!
- GUI Improvements
- You can now build IPSWs with TinyUmbrella/iFaith blobs!
- Removes OTA Updates/badge on iOS 5.x.x+ devices.
- Added an IPSW Downloader
- Built-in iREB functionality updated from newest iREB r5 module.
- Custom Packages in Expert actually works now. :P
- All supported firmwares in this release are untethered.
- A5 devices are NOT supported at this time due to no public DFU/iBoot exploit.
Now, you can use Sn0wbreeze to provide an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak to your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch in Windows. Keep in mind that this doesn’t work on A5 devices which includes the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 because a bootrom exploit hasn't been found yet. And as with most tools made by iH8sn0w, sn0wbreeze v2.9 is only available for Windows.
While Sn0wbreeze may not be updated as quickly as iPhone Dev-Team's Redsn0w, it is still one of the best go-to solutions when it comes to jailbreaking in Windows. Here's to another year (and more) for Sn0wbreeze.
