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.
