Sn0wbreeze 2.0 To Jailbreak iOS 4.1 Will Be Released Soon; SHAtter Jailbreak Progress Update

iPhone 4 - First Impressions

We have some good news for folks who want to jailbreak iOS 4.1 that was released by Apple a week back.

iH8sn0w, developer of Sn0wbreeze, which is the Windows version of the PwnageTool – popular jailbreaking tool is planning to release Sn0wbreeze 2.0 for iOS 4.1.

DinoD7 has published a video of jailbroken iPhone to prove that is is possible to jailbreak iOS 4.1 using the new version of Sn0wbreeze.

It looks like Sn0wbreeze 2.0 will jailbreak iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G MC Model, iPhone 3GS with older bootrom and iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3rd generation with newer bootrom if it's still on iPhone 3.1.2. You can use F0recast to find out whether your iPhone 3GS has an older or newer bootrom.

Sn0wbreeze 2.0 won’t be able to jailbreak iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G as of now but iH8sn0w will add support for the new iDevices as soon as Chronic Dev Team releases the SHAtter jailbreak.

Meanwhile, Chronic Dev team has also provided progress update on the SHAtter jailbreak, which should be able to jailbreak all existing iOS devices for life.

Many people in the comments are asking for a progress update. Any kind of update that we could actually give would be too technical for anyone to understand anyway, not to mention potentially reveal the exploit. Just know that things are going swimmingly and we are working as hard as we can. Any demos, screenshots, or *cough* download links will be posted to this blog before anywhere else, so keep an eye out!

We’ll let you know as soon as we’ve any further updates. So stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.
