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?
