Sn0wbreeze 2.8 Beta 2 Gets Untethered iOS 5 Jailbreak Support For iPhone 3GS With Older Bootrom

Sn0wbreeze iOS 5

iH8sn0w has just released a new version of Sn0wbreeze – v2.8 beta 2 for iOS 5 beta that supports an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 3GS with older bootrom.

iH8sn0w had released Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 1 few days back to jailbreak iOS 5 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Sn0wbreeze allows users to create custom iOS 5 beta 1 firmware file that is pre-jailbroken, which can be used to upgrade their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to iOS 5 beta 1. In case of iPhone, it also preserves the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w.

Sn0wbreeze v2.8 beta 2 supports the following iOS 5 devices:

The jailbreak is tethered for all the supported iOS devices (except iPhone 3GS with an older bootrom), which means that you need to connect your iOS device to the computer on every reboot.

iPhone Dev team has also released Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 for Mac and Windows to jailbreak iOS 5 beta for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch but supports only a tethered jailbreak.

You can download Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 2 from this link.

As always, let us know how it goes.

  • norgod

    it should be now for all the devices…i hope geohot can get his jailbreak out now..his jailbreak will support all idevices…..

  • Bam

    iPhonehacks I think you meant “except” not “expect” for iPhone 3GS.

  • i think its useless to install Sn0wbreeze 2.8 Beta 2 because iOS 5 is developers only version… we should wait for the public release of the iOS 5 final version.!

    • Zolk

      I’m no expert, but this makes sense to me. It seems it would be better for these teams to hold off from publishing info about successes of jailbreaking ios5 until ios5 is publicly released. Dunno.

  • Tbv

    Ih8sn0w is a rising star, he is going to give the DEV team a run for their money in the future. With that being said, I will wait for the final IOS 5 release before trying any jailbreak. Thank you ih8sn0w for the Verizon iPhone IOS 2.8.1 jailbreak. Your Snowbreeze tool is getting better every day.

    i hope they didn’t burn an untether exploit for this release. It would be a big waste.
