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:
iPhone 4 (GSM)
iPhone 4 (CDMA)
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.
