Following up releases from both the Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team, iH8sn0w has seeded a new version of his popular jailbreak tool, Sn0wBreeze, to include pod2g’s iOS 5.0.1 untether. But he didn’t stop there.
In light of Sn0wBreeze’s two-year anniversary, iH8sn0w has incorporated a number of new features into the utility. Among those is support for older firmware (all the way back to iOS 3.1.3) and an IPSW downloader…
Here’s a full list of the changes in Sn0wBreeze v2.9, as noted on iH8sn0w’s blog:
- Brought back old firmware support in one release!
- GUI Improvements
- You can now build IPSWs with TinyUmbrella/iFaith blobs!
- Removes OTA Updates/badge on iOS 5.x.x.x+ devices
- Added an IPSW Downloader
- Built-in iREB functionality updated from newest iREB r5 module
- Custom Packages in Expert actually works now. :p
- All supported firmwares in this release are untethered
Sn0wBreeze 2.9 supports every firmware from iOS 3.1.3 to 5.0.1, except for iOS 4.3.4, 4.3.5 and iOS 5 (which iH8sn0w says are coming soon). It will not work with A5 devices like the iPad 2 or iPhone 4S, as there’s not currently an available iBoot exploit.
Have you tried the update yet? What do you think?
