Sn0wbreeze

iH8sn0w has just released Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 6 to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 6 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that was seeded to developers of iOS developer program on Friday.

The beta version is meant for developers of jailbreak apps and tweaks, so that they can test and debug their software on iOS 5 beta.

Sn0wbreeze is considered the unofficial PwnageTool for Windows. It allows users to create custom iOS 5 beta 6 firmware file that is pre-jailbroken, which can be used to upgrade their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to iOS 5 beta 6. In case of iPhone, it also preserves the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w.

According to the release notes, Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 6 includes the following features:

  • Still has ability to Hacktivate. 
  • Still removes UDID developer check/Beta Timer. 
  • Still preserves the baseband (as always). 
Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 6 supports the following iOS 5 devices:

Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 6 still cannot jailbreak iPad 2. It supports an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 3GS (old bootrom), while it supports only a tethered jailbreak for the remaining iOS 5 devices mentioned above, which means that you need to connect your iOS device to the computer on every reboot.

You can download Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 6 for Windows using this link.

As always, let us know how it goes.
