How to Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Untethered With Sn0wbreeze

By , Jan 17, 2012

The two year anniversary of Sn0wbreeze was met with a massive upgrade to the Windows jailbreak tool.

With the upgrade comes support for pod2g’s iOS 5.0.1 untethered exploit. For Windows users, Sn0wbreeze is an excellent alternative to RedSn0w.

Take a look at our full Sn0wbreeze 2.9 tutorial for iOS 5.0.1 inside…

Step 1: Download Sn0wbreeze 2.9 from our downloads page and run in XP compatibility mode as an administrator.

Step 2: Browse for your IPSW firmware or download the necessary IPSW using the in app IPSW download tool.

Step 3: Sn0wbreeze will create your custom IPSW and place it on your desktop.

Step 4: Once custom firmware creation is completed, click OK, place your device into DFU mode, and click Start to enter iREB. iREB will place your device into PwnedDFU mode for custom firmware restores with iTunes.

Step 5: Once your device is verified in PwnedDFU, click OK and close out of Sn0wbreeze and open up iTunes. iTunes should recognize your device in DFU mode. Hold shift on your keyboard and click restore, then select your custom firmware. Be sure that it is prefixed with “Sn0wbreeze”.

Step 6: Let your device restore, and upon completion you should have a jailbroken device running iOS 5.0.1 untethered. Check for Cydia on your Home screen.

What do you think about the new Sn0wbreeze? Are you excited now that it has 5.0.1 support?

    Redsn0w is much easier.

      Noooooooooo……….Sn0wbreeze is soo ,much easier……………….Ya only need to make the ipsw once for one firmware……………………….The all that’s needed is a restore and your done…………………………redsn0w……………Ya restore…………then jailbreak…………….Tho ya dont really have to restore…………………It’s just the best & preferred way to do it

      But once your ipsw is done…………………………………ya just restore when you think you need to restore…………………….and don’t have to bother running a jailbreak tool………………..Sn0wbreeze kills 2 birds with one stone…………………….

      Really depends on how you do it tho………………………

        And what are you, five years old? You only need one period per sentence. It just looks stupid when you write like that. Please go to english class once more, and try not to get an F this time.

    I don’t get it. What’s the huge update here ? I used older version of snowbreeze and i faith to update and jailbreak 3 iphone 3gs on 5.0.1 while preserving bb on the day untethered jailbreak was released. Only the difference i see here is ifaith is included in snowbreeze. Nothing special about that. :(

      Oh i forgot! With this u don’t have to use ibooty and corona. That can be a relief for someone.

    This is good news, the more JB options out there, the better it is for us :)

    One question: “the latest version of RedSn0w includes a fix for iBooks and sporadic launchctl issues as well.” Is this sn0wbreeze version already ok with those issues?

    Thanks!

    To get Apps legitimately without paying…

    There is a program called JunoWallet that allows you to earn free iTunes cards. Install it from the app store and use the promo code ED170124. It has worked for me.

    Hi,

    For my 3GS, I created Sn0wbreeze’ custom IPSW using Export mode, after restoration it says “Sim is not supported”, and Cydia is not installed! What I understood is, though I used a custom IPSW, I didnt get a hactivated firmware (it seems),

    I rely on Ultrasn0w, any ideas on how to get it working? Should I add Cydia IP address or some other IP address in hosts file before restoring?

    I did everything as specified, but Cydia doesn’t appear on my home screen!!! What should I do!!??
