Sn0wbreeze 2.8 Beta 10 To Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Beta 2 For iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch Released


iH8sn0w has also released Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 10 to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that was seeded to developers of iOS developer program.

Redsn0w 0.9.9b8 that was released to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 beta also works with iOS 5.0.1 beta 2, all you need to do is point it to iOS 5.0.1 beta 1 firmware file.

Sn0wbreeze is considered the unofficial PwnageTool for Windows. It allows users to create custom iOS 5.0.1 firmware file that is pre-jailbroken, which can be used to upgrade their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to iOS 5.0.1 beta. 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 10 includes the following features:

  • Supports iOS 5.0 (9A334)/5.0.1-b2 (9A404)Fixed iBooks sandbox crashing issues (as of 2.8b9).
  • Fixed location services issues with iPhone 3GS users running the iPad baseband (as of 2.8b9).
  • Re-added iPad baseband install option to iPhone 3GS.
  • Removes UDID requirement/Beta timer in 5.0.1.
  • Tethered devices are booted via iBooty which is
  • extracted to the Desktop after running sn0wbreeze.
Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 10 supports the following iOS 5.0.1 devices:

Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 10 supports an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) and 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. It cannot jailbreak iPad 2 or iPhone 4S.

You can download Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 10 for Windows using this link.

As always, let us know how it goes.

  • ChaosHero

    Can you release a new redsn0w that can be reboot our device ????????????

  • willardp808

    I have to laugh whenever I read a “what is taking so long” or “this tethered jailbreak is BS”. It sounds like some of you think part of your payment for your phone included Jailbreaking services. It absolutely amazes me just how ungrateful some people can be. People who have NEVER written a piece of code seem to think it’s easy coming up with a solution the average idiot can apply without bricking their phone. If you play the PC version of COD4, my nick is STFUandDIE!!! I think it applies here!

    • brian

      what a strange analogy

    • How about u stfungofuck ur self! This simply means they aren’t good at what they’re doin! Maybe they should pursue different career! N I’m sure most of this websites get donation from their communities which includes all these angry people here!

      • v2n

        yea maybe jobs should have pursued a diffrent career considering he can’t even block some of “non good” hackers. stfu realize the fact you don’t know what you are talking about

  • Bob

    Oh come on people! I have been waiting patiently for a long time, but now I’m am getting really frustrated. There hasn’t been a jailbreak for iPad 2 for the newest firmware for over 3 months. If there is never going to be a jailbreak then just say so! I’m tired of waiting!

  • Carl Mason

    Just used SnowBreeze 2.8 beta 10 to jailbreak Iphone 4 on IOS 5, for some reason cydia and safari don’t load up?

  • Sage

    While it does seem a bit childish to complain about a free, more or less bootleg service, Cydia still had a profiting market and jailbreaking still has to remain competative or people will just forget about it and enjoy their apple servitude. So there is pressure on the developers to come up with a fully functional jailbreak. That being said, you can easily just backup the phone on a laptop so it’s easy to restore if you need to restart. Unless your out in the woods it shouldn’t be a Problem. Just keep the laptop in your car. They’re dirt cheap these days and you already paid for that ridiculously expensive iDevice so there’s no excuse.

    • BDog_Grizzly

      I completely agree. Dev team DOES make money off of some products. Specially when they are also making up Jailbroken apps that you sit and pay for. And I will say too, people actually donate a great deal of money to these people. I myself have paid at least $400+ in the past 3 years.(Averaging here and there.) I upgraded to the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S because I needed the extra speed the A5 chip offered up. Not to mention the need for the damned 64GB hard drive. (Which should have fuckin’ been here at the release of the damned iPhone 4.) Anyways, if these guys don’t usually cough up the products people usually just say “FUCK IT” and leave Jailbreaking behind. And in turn people like “Big BOSS” and other Hackers out there lose out on tons of $$$. I’m a patient man, but even I’M getting a little annoyed they haven’t released a Jailbreak for the A5 Processor yet. I’ll stick around like always. But I’m not sure if I’ll be donating any more $$$ till I actually see proof of an A5 jailbreak.(Other than that stupid tidbit they showed 2 weeks ago.)

    • Jo

      I agree.
      It works for me also. My OS5 on the Iphone 4 was has been jailbroken immeadiately after the release with the Tethered version of redsn0w_win_0.9.9b4. At the begining i had always my laptop and cable with me, now i realize that there are computers all over any time which i can access easely when i’m on the outside. So i put in a pendrive the ” iPhone3,1_5.0_9A334_Restore.ipsw” + jailbroken ipsw”sn0wbreeze_iPhone 4-5.0.ipsw” + ” redsn0w_win_0.9.9b4″ and it fits on my pocket. My cable is also always with me and i never get stucked. Let the people work on another solution but be gratfull that there is already a Tethered version. For me works well.

  • Chris

    Any updates when there will be a jailbreak for Iphone 4s?

    • The purchases I make are eentirly based on these articles.

  • Scotty l

    Firstly, thankyou iPhone dev team and other iPhone hackers that have provided us with an amazing product time and time again.

    Bob – suck it up. If you bought an iPad 2 but needed a jailbreak then you really should have thought a little before your purchase. Plenty of iPad 1’s around that are very jailbreakable at a decent price.

    The I device coders offer an excellent service for nothing or worse than nothing abuse.

    If you dislike the state of the iPhone hacking scene roll up your sleeves and do a bit of coding to help out. You don’t have the skill? Well then, shut up and be thankful to the guys who slave away at their computers putting together a solution for you to winge and bitch about.

    Be thankful these guys are generous enough to share their knowledge and skill with the world.

  • Jason Ellis

    What about the Iphone 4S???? When will we be able to Jailbreak? Even Teathered at this point is fine? I miss my Jailbreak!!!!! 🙁

  • sherwin

    I tried JB and adding the iPad baseband using Snowbreeze 2.8-10. It jailbroke ok and I restored with iTunes up untill I get the Apple logo with the empty bar at the bottom. The Snowbreeze logo showed first and the bar filled up, but it is stuck at the Apple logo with an empty bar at the bottom for more than 2 hours. What happened? Any idea?

    • sherwin

      It’s a 3GS
