Sn0wbreeze 2.5 For Windows: Untethered iOS 4.3.1 Jailbreak For iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch And Apple TV 2G Released
iH8sn0w has just released Sn0wbreeze 2.5 for Windows, which allows users who want to jailbreak and also unlock their iPhone to update their iPhone with a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.3.1 firmware while preserving the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w.
Sn0wbreeze 2.5 supports an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 and supports the following devices:
Sn0wbreeze 2.5 also allows users to enable multitouch gestures, which are only available to developers of iOS developer program.
iPhone Dev team has released Redsn0w 0.9.6rc9 for Mac and Windows and PwnageTool 4.3 for Mac earlier today. Â The warning issued by Dev team to iPhone unlockers is also applicable here:
WARNING WARNING â€” ultrasn0w users donâ€™t update yet!We need to first release an update to ultrasn0w that fixes some incompatibilities when FW 4.3.1 is used on the older basebands supported by ultrasn0w. Â And remember once we do fix ultrasn0w for 4.3.1 (weâ€™ll announce it here and on twitter),you must only get there via a custom IPSW from PwnageTool, Sn0wbreeze or xpwn! Â Donâ€™t ever try to restore or update to a stock IPSW, or youâ€™ll lose the unlock!
Sn0wbreeze 2.5 doesn’t supportÂ iPad 2 currently asÂ Apple has fixed the jailbreak vulnerability in iOS 4.3.1.Â Dev team is trying to figure out how to legally distributeÂ Comexâ€™s iOS 4.3 jailbreak for iPad 2 to add support for it.
iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone users who don’t care about unlocking are better off using Redsn0w as one doesn’t need to preserve baseband like iPhone users.Â Since the tools have just been released, they could be buggy so please proceed with caution and also check the comments for feedback from fellow readers.
Please note that jailbreaking and unlocking your iOS device may void its warranty so proceed with caution and at your own risk. Please donâ€™t forget to backup your iOS device before you proceed. You canrefer to this post for instructions on how to backup your iOS device.
You can download Sn0wbreeze 2.5 from iH8sn0wâ€™s website.
As always, please let us know how it goes.
