Sn0wbreeze Updated To Add Support For Untethered iOS 6.x Jailbreak


iH8sn0w has released Sn0wbreeze v2.9.8, which supports untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.x using the evasi0n untether.

Sn0wbreeze v2.9.8 will allow Windows users to jailbreak their older iOS devices such as iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4G on iOS 6.1 to iOS 6.0.

Here’s what new in Sn0wbreeze v2.9.8:

  • Added 5.2/6.0.x/6.1 untethers provided by evad3rs
  • Added iOS 6.1 support for iPhone 3GS, and A4 devices.
  • Fixed Hacktivation issues on 6.0.x.
  • Fixed some iFaith mode bugs.

Sn0wbreeze allows users to create custom firmware file that is pre-jailbroken, which can then be used to upgrade their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to iOS 6.0.1 and iOS 6.0. In case of iPhone, Sn0wbreeze also preserves the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w.

iH8sn0w has reiterated that Sn0wbreeze won’t support A5, A5x, A6 and A6X powered devices like the iPhone 5 , iPhone 4S, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini and iPod touch 5g.

As stated many times in the past, sn0wbreeze cannot be updated to work on A5(X)/A6(X) devices until a low level exploit in DFU or iBoot is found and made public.

You can download the latest version Sn0wbreeze, which is available only for Windows users from the download page.

As always, let us know how it goes in the comments.

        Yes i did, and im wondering why they dont use the same as Evasi0n trick is all,

        • Kryojenix

          Maybe that wouldn’t allow them to preserve old basebands, which is the main reason for still using Sn0wbreeze.

    Guyz.. So,can I go ahead and upgrade my iphone 3gs to 6.1 version? Currently it is unlocked..

  • BlueTango

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but what is the benefit of using this route versus Evasi0n? I’ve got a jailbroken iPhone 4.

    • RandomGamer342

      It preserves your baseband, so if you rely on a carrier unlock you can still do it

      If you don’t need a carrier unlock, i’d actually recommend doing a proper itunes restore and using evasi0n

  • jairo

    too late we dont need this

    • Kryojenix

      You don’t, but some of us do. I need to preserve my old baseband so I can continue to use Ultrasn0w carrier unlock on my iphone3gs.

    After I used this and picked to use iTunes for sync as I had a backup on PC it would not detect the phone in iTunes device manager shows the phone but on 3 pcs I tried it opens iTunes but does not list the phone however all my other 3GS plus 4s work fine?

    • Warbeast

      What I’m saying is I took a backup for contacts then after using this on 1st boot I picked use iTunes not the cloud the 3GS was then stuck on connect to iTunes pc would not show it or connect but was working fine before this and still syncs with my 4s ect like normal

    • Mike

      i have the same problem with my 3GS

    • Mike

      Warbeast i just read this and works for my iphone 3GS, you just have to install the evasi0n untether from Cydia.

      • Warbeast

        also I found my music would not play it would just keep skipping
        anyway i read its common with evasi0n the fix is to just del all music then sync it back witch works but that’s 2 big bugs

  • LukeD

    Does anyone remember the JB which you could do directly on your iDevice, by going to safari and typing in the web address? What happened to that? Is this something that could be done in the future?

  • Mike

    Is it possible to downgrade Iphone 4 from 6.1 to 5.1?

    • Mike

      Btw. I have shsh blobs saved on cydia server.

  • VWJetta
