Popular iPhone developer ih9sn0w has just released the latest version of Sn0wbreeze for windows. Sn0wbreeze 2.9.4 brings support for iOS 5.1.1 untethered on A4 powered devices such as the iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPod touch 4G, Apple TV 2G and below.
Support for newer A5 and A5X powered devices such as the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPad 3 and Apple TV 3G is not included with this release as there is currently no bootrom exploit available for these devices. Sn0wbreeze relies on Geohot’s limera1n exploit to pwn custom firmwares on the older A4 powered devices.
The support for iOS 5.1.1 9B208 which is the iPhone 4 GSM has also been left out until the Absinthe tool updates the untether payload to support this minor firmware update for the iPhone 4 GSM.
The instructions for jailbreaking using Sn0wbreeze are similar to the last few releases of this too. It can be used to provide an untethered jailbreak for your A4 powered iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple TV 2G. You do have to use iOS 5.1.1 IPSW where necessary and you can also skip the booting tethered part with iBooty as Sn0wbreeze version 2.9.4 supports a full untethered jailbreak on the latest firmware. Sn0wbreeze version 2.9.4 for windows is now available to download.Read more...
