iH8Sn0w, the developer of Sn0wBreeze sent a tweet a few hours ago telling he had successfully jailbroken his iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) running iOS 4.2 beta. Apparently, Cydia, Icy or Rock won’t work though, which is kind of inconvenient and makes the jailbreak useless.

The point is he did manage to jailbreak the new beta release of iOS 4.2

A few hours before iH8Sn0w announced this, some guy going by the name of DinoD7 had posted the video below on YouTube showing what seems to be a fully functional jailbroken iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.1.

All this is good news but let me be the party pooper here and remind you that these kinda jailbreaks come with restrictions (ie. iPhone 3GS only with old bootrom that was previously jailbroken with PwnageTool between June 5 and June 6, 2010 at 11.45 am). So while it’s great news, don’t get too excited over it. So far, GreenPois0n remains our best bet.

Any thoughts you’d like to share?

    Hi Guys,
    Some help would be greatly appreciated, my GF recently brought an iPhone 3G off ebay, which was jailbroken (originally locked to O2) so she could use her orange contract in it.
    I knew very little of jailbreaking/unlocking etc at the time plugged it into her iTunes and told her to go ahead and update the software so it now has IOS4.1 on it and is no longer jailbroken.
    I need a solution that will allow me to put her orange sim back in it. I have tried downloading a standard .ipsw of 4.1 and have ‘cooked’ it through snowbreeze, but when i then try to restore through itunes it says the firmware isn’t compatible.
    As i say I have only really learnt the minimal amount i know since updating the OS, so don’t have any SHSH’s saved from before any updates, and I’m not even sure what OS it was running before it was updated.
    ANy help would be greatly appreciated as its kid of my fault she no longer as a new phone and fixing it would definitely earn me some brownie points!!
    Many Thanks
