Sn0wbreeze 2.9.5 Adds Support For Revised iOS 5.1.1; Includes Location Services Fix For iPhone 3GS


iH8sn0w has also released a new version of Sn0wbreeze (v2.9.5), which adds support for the revised iOS 5.1.1 that was released by Apple for GSM iPhone 4 users.

iH8sn0w has released Sn0wbreeze v2.9.4, which includes suport for iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple TV.

In addition to support for the revised iOS 5.1.1, iH8sn0w has also included a fix for location services for iPhone 3GS users (iPad baseband users).

Sn0wbreeze allows users to create custom iOS 5.1.1 firmware file that is pre-jailbroken, which can then be used to upgrade their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to iOS 5.1.1. In case of iPhone, Sn0wbreeze also preserves the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w (though Ultrasn0w is not yet compatible with iOS 5.1.1).

Here’s what’s new in Sn0wbreeze v2.9.5:

  • Added 5.1.1/9B208 untether payload for the iPhone 4 GSM
  • Added iPhone 3GS (iPad Baseband users) location services fix
Sn0wbreeze 2.9.5 supports the following iOS devices running on iOS 5.1.1:
  • iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4
  • iPad 1
  • iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G
  • Apple TV 2
iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users who depend on unlocking should use Sn0wbreeze or Redsn0w (whenever Dev team releases it with iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak support) as it preserves the baseband. If you’re only after jailbreaking then you could use the Absinthe jailbreak tool as it is easier to use. Users having trouble jailbreaking their iOS device with Absinthe can also try Sn0wbreeze.
You can download the latest version Sn0wbreeze, which is available only for Windows users using this link.

    so with sn0wbreeze can I unlock a 4s running iOS 5.1 ?

  • elim

    did it says unlocking using snowbreeze?

  • Ludacris

    If your phone is already unlocked, will upgrading the firmware while preserving baseband keep the unlock or will you need to wait until there is an unlock for 5.1.1?

    • Paul

      It will keep the unlock kind of as ur need to update ultrasnow from Cydia to work with 5.1.1 ultrasnow isn’t updated yet thou

      Stay away from the ultrasnow fixer for 5.1.1 it does work to unlock with iPad baseband but I found it buggy with most my apps not able to open after 1hr of use on 3gs

      • cYx*

        I did the same things..everything forks fine.

        • paul

          i guess its just one of them things then
          1st safari wouldnt open witch i read is common for the 5.1.1 fixer so i just used skyfire instead then after awhile that wouldnt open plus cydia and a bunch of other apps

          i had to do a full restore and repeat the 5.1.1 fixer 3times in a day also reinstalled 06.15.00 baseband in the end i got fed up with it crashing and went back to 5.0.1 untill a new ultrasnow is out

          i even tried to boot with redsnow tethered as i read this can correct apps crashing but didnt help

          also i found that using a stock 5.1.1 with no bb i still couldnt actiavate even with correct sim phone just stuck on searching itunes says no sim and this is on stock 5.1.1 without ultrasnow even installed 🙁

    Hi there,

    I have jailbroken my iphone 4 with absinthe 2.0.2 on firmware ios 5.1.1 (9B208)
    Now im having issues with the location service.
    I can use my maps. But the apps don’t word with the location services!
    Can someone help me please????

  • Martin

    I was on 5.1 with tethered jailbreak (by redsnow) with gevey unlock. Sn0wBreeze helped me to make the untethered jailbreak and upgrade firmware to 5.1.1 while preserving baseband. Phone is still unlockable with Gevey 🙂
    Thanks a lot guys!

    • Martin

      iPhone 4, baseband 04.10.01

  • Eric

    I can’t get my iPhone 4 5.0.1 with original baseband to get into Pwned DFU mode with iReb v5. :/
    I haven’t had an issue with this before. All it does it restarts the phone with the Apple logo.

    Any ideas on what to do?
