iH8sn0w just updated his popular Windows jailbreak tool, Sn0wBreeze, to support the latest public firmware for pre-A5 iOS devices. The update brings support to iOS 6.0 and iOS 6.0.1 tethered jailbreaks for those devices.

Eligible hardware includes the iPhone 4, and the iPhone 3GS. Sn0wBreeze does not work with A5 devices like the iPad 2, or A6 devices like the iPhone 5. This update lends support for the newest public firmware on older devices only. Take a look inside for a taste of what’s new with Sn0wBreeze 2.9.7…

Per iH8Sn0w’s blog post:

  • Added 6.0 (10A403)/6.0.1 (10A523) support. (Only includes iPhone 3GS & A4 devices).
  • The 6.0/6.0.1 is currently a tethered based jailbreak via iBooty (except for iPhone 3GS old bootrom users).
  • SAM is built-in for iOS 6 hacktivations. (Hacktivated phones can reboot to a semi-tethered state after being activated [rather than just hang at the Apple Logo]). Kudos @sbingner!

You can download Sn0wBreeze 2.9.7 from our downloads page located here.

We’ll be back with a full tutorial that shows how to jailbreak iOS 6.0/6.0.1 on Windows with Sn0wBreeze 2.9.7. In the mean time, tell us, are you happy to finally have iOS 6.0/6.0.1 support for Sn0wBreeze?

Update: Our full Sn0wBreeze 2.9.7 jailbreak tutorial has been posted here.

    Gr8 i will check that later

  • SoOptimistic

    4S please already!

    • Will not happen until the jailbreak for A5 and newer is ready..
      Before any jailbreak comes out you will read and see clips on here first.. Any news about how to jailbreak at the mo will be using the limera1n hole so A4 and lower..

  • Definitely need the 4s…

  • I wish they would try to title it a bit differently. While I know that the jailbreak applies to A4 related tethered jailbreak devices, some people may get confused and think that iPhone 5 jailbreak 6.0.1 is out.

  • shar

  • Alright, this is what I was waiting for… stuck on 3GS with 5.1.1 BB 05.13.04. This is like a sooner Christmas for me ^_^
    I will have to donate to the guy who made sn0wbreeze, because without him I couldn’t use my phone at all. (Since I am on Windows and PwnageTool is Mac only)
