The Sn0wBreeze jailbreak tool for Windows has been updated with support for the Verizon iPhone 4 running iOS 4.2.7. iH8Sn0w has updated Sn0wBreeze with a new payload for an untethered jailbreak on the latest version of iOS for the Verizon iPhone.

If you are a Windows user with a Verizon iPhone 4 running iOS 4.2.7, you can now perform an untethered jailbreak with Sn0wBreeze…

“sn0wbreeze 2.6.1: Verizon love!

Well, after i0n1c released his untether exploit for 4.3.1, Apple shortly pushed out 4.3.2 AND 4.2.7. i0n1c’s payload was ported over to 4.3.2 in a short period of time but not 4.2.7. This made Verizon users very frustrated.

I originally ordered a Verizon iPhone 4 for my upcoming SHSH blobs dumper. Then I + many others on twitter realized that an untether was not available for 4.2.7. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been sick and didn’t do much, but today I was finally able to get the strength to work on this Verizon untether. Since i0n1c’s payload is not easily reversible, I went to previous exploits.

After trying, pod2g’s + posixninja’s kernel exploit for 4.2.x is STILL in 4.2.7! After some more work, I managed to get this thing untethered!

So, this new release includes that new payload to untether + jailbreak 4.2.7.”

You can download the latest version of Sn0wBreeze from our iPhone downloads section. The 4.2.7 firmware for the Verizon iPhone can also be found there.

If you’re wondering how to jailbreak the Verizon iPhone with Sn0wBreeze, refer to our previous tutorial for jailbreaking with Sn0wBreeze. The steps remain the same (expect for 4.2.7 IPSW instead of 4.3.1).

    Woo, great work @ih8sn0w! For such a young guy, he’s a smart cookie! I’ve started using sn0wbreeze just since 4.2.1, and I think I’ll continue using it! I’ve never had a single problem 🙂
