Sn0wbreeze Updated To Add Support For iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0 Tethered Jailbreak


iH8sn0w has just released a new version of Sn0wbreeze (v2.9.7) to add support for iOS 6.0.1 and iOS 6.0.

Sn0wbreeze v2.9.7 will allow Windows users to jailbreak (tethered) their iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch on iOS 6.0.1 and iOS 6.0.

Here’s what’s new in Snowbreeze v2.9.7:

  • Added 6.0 (10A403)/6.0.1 (10A523) support. (Only includes iPhone 3GS & A4 devices).
  • The 6.0/6.0.1 is currently a tethered based jailbreak via iBooty (except for iPhone 3GS old bootrom users).
  • SAM is built-in for iOS 6 hacktivations. (Hacktivated phones can reboot to a semi-tethered state after being activated [rather than just hang at the Apple Logo]). Kudos @sbingner!

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.

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.

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 using this link.

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