Following the release of the updated PwnageTool 4.3.2 jailbreak tool, the iPhone Dev Team has also pushed out an update to the UltraSn0w unlock in Cydia.
UltraSn0w 1.2.2 has been released to support the new iOS 4.3.2 firmware, as the previous version of UltraSn0w (1.2.1) was broken in iOS 4.3.2. Please note, this will only work for the older iPhone 4 baseband 1.59.00, and iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 4.26.08, 5.11.07, 5.12.01, 5.13.04, and 6.15.00. It can not unlock newer basebands since there is currently no unlock available.

Just hours after the Dev Team updated RedSn0w, young iPhone hacker iH8Sn0w updated his own jailbreak tool, Sn0wBreeze, to version 2.6. This new version of Sn0wBreeze uses i0n1c’s untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2.
For those of you that are not aware, Sn0wBreeze is a tool very similar to PwnageTool. Sn0wBreeze, a Windows-only jailbreak, allows you to update to the latest iOS while preserving your baseband, which is necessary if you want to unlock your iPhone.
Sn0wBreeze 2.6 will work for any device that supports iOS 4.3.2, except for the iPad 2… Read More

Like the newest version of RedSn0w, Sn0wBreeze has been updated with custom boot logo animations. Sn0wBreeze 2.5.1 also adds multiple enhancements and options for those wishing to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 on Windows.
Sn0wBreeze 2.5.1’s custom boot logo animation option functions in the same way as GreenPois0n’s. Windows users can perform an untethered jailbreak of iOS 4.3.1 with SnowBreeze. Read More

MuscleNerd has confirmed that UltraSn0w update is coming for iOS 4.3.1 in a few days. The unlock tool has had several bugs and is currently incompatible with several older basebands.
To clarify: the upcoming UltraSn0w update will not unlock any new basebands. The update is meant for current unlockers that wish to update to the latest 4.3.1 jailbreak and keep their unlock. Read More

After much anticipation, the iOS 4.3.1 jailbreak was released early this morning, but I guess the actual time depends on where you live.
This is the first untethered jailbreak solution for iOS 4.3.1. There have been other jailbreaks for iOS 4.3.1 but they were tethered and had issues with stability.
Finally, we have a stable and working iOS 4.3.1 solution; actually we have many solutions, as you’ll see below. Big thanks to @i0n1c for his untether, and the iPhone Dev Team for their hard work at making this a reality… Read More

iH8sn0w has updated his Windows jailbreak tool, called Sn0wBreeze, with the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1. Sn0wBreeze is now the third tool available for an untethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.1 (alongside PwnageTool and RedSn0w).
Sn0wbreeze 2.5 is hardly different from its last beta, except that is uses i0n1c’s untethered exploit. An added bonus is that the hidden multitouch gestures in iOS 4.3 are enabled with Sn0wBreeze. These gestures were unearthed a couple of months ago, and iH8sn0w has found a way to enable them in his latest jailbreak tool.
Sn0wBreeze is not recommended for those wishing to preserve their unlock. Again, Sn0wBreeze is Windows only. Read More

The Dev Team will be releasing the official untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 very soon. As you might have already heard, the jailbreak was teased on Twitter yesterday.
Today, it has been confirmed that the official release will drop in less than 24 hours. We’ve got details and times after the break! Read More

Stefan Esser, better known as the iPhone hacker i0n1c, has released the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1. In a recent tweet, i0n1c gave the download link to the latest untethered jailbreak we’ve all been waiting for.
The only catch is that the file is password protected. And i0n1c isn’t giving out the password… Read More

The Windows jailbreak tool, Sn0wbreeze, was recently updated to perform a tethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.1. We told you about the newest beta release a couple days ago, and many of you have successfully been able to jailbreak your iPhone on 4.3.1.
The biggest downer with the current Sn0wbreeze beta is that it’s a tethered jailbreak, and we’ve recommended holding off on iOS 4.3.1 until an untethered solution is released from the Dev Team.
To our surprise, an iDB reader sent us a video of his iPhone 3GS running an untethered jailbreak after using the latest Sn0wbreeze 2.4b1… Read More

It looks like an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1 might not take as long as people might have thought.
This new video shows off an iPod touch that’s running iOS 4.3.1 with an untethered jailbreak.
If you’re still unsure what the benefits of an untethered jailbreak are, check out this article.
Does this mean that the author will release a jailbreak tool themselves? Well, not exactly, but this is still great news for jailbreakers…

iH8Sn0w has released Sn0wbreeze 2.4b1, and the Windows jailbreak tool will now jailbreak iOS 4.3.1. There’s already been a tethered jailbreak for 4.3.1 uncovered in PwnageTool, and both available jailbreaks are still tethered.
Sn0wbreeze is now the more stable option for jailbreak iOS 4.3.1, but there is still no untethered solution available. Jailbreak devs are working hard to release an official untethered jailbreak for the latest version of iOS, but there is no exact ETA set. Read More

iH8Sn0w has pushed another update to his Windows jailbreak tool for iOS 4.3. Sn0wBreeze 2.3b4 adds some bug fixes and more baseband compatibility.
Sn0wBreeze 2.3 offers a tethered jailbreak solution for iOS 4.3, but the tool is still in beta. This means that stability is not guaranteed, and you should use it at your own risk…

iH8sn0w has pushed another update to his Sn0wBreeze jailbreak solution for Windows. As the only current jailbreak tool for iOS 4.3, Sn0wBreeze 2.3 offers a tethered jailbreak for those unlucky enough to update their firmware to 4.3.
Sn0wBreeze 2.3b2 adds several improvements from the first beta, but nothing too significant. Sn0wBreeze 2.3 is still in beta, and iH8sn0w and team are working hard to create an untethered solution for the popular Windows jailbreak tool…

If you are one of the unlucky ones who upgraded to Apple’s new 4.3 and lost their jailbreak, listen up. Although i0n1c said he would be waiting for iOS 4.3.1 to come out, to release a jailbreak, iH8sn0w has decided to give us Sn0wbreeze 2.3 beta to tide us over.
So if you have an iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad or iP0d touch and are running 4.3, let me give you a simple tutorial on how to jailbreak with Sn0wbreeze…

Looks like the main jailbreak devs talked to each other today to release their jailbreak tools altogether around the same time. About an hour after the Dev Team announced the release of their PwnageTool jailbreak for iPhone 4.2.1, and now iH8Sn0w is releasing Sn0wBreeze 2.2.
Just like PwnageTool, Sn0wBreeze is a jailbreak tool that allows you to update your iPhone to the latest firmware, and jailbreak while preserving your baseband and your ability to unlock… Read More

iH8Sn0w, the young developer behind Sn0wBreeze, shared a screenshot of the next version of his jailbreak tool, which will include a new mode called “Baseband Preservation Mode”.
Baseband Preservation Mode will not jailbreak or unlock your iPhone. It will apparently just update it to a newer iOS version without updating the baseband… Read More

After releasing his Sn0wBreeze jailbreak for iOS 4.1, iH8Sn0w has decided to follow the steps of Chronic DevTeam and their GreenPois0n jailbreak by making SnowBreeze’s source code open source.
That means that anyone can download the source code to tweak it and hopefully make it better. I think this is particularly good for wannabe iPhone hackers. Downloading the source code will help you see how a jailbreak works behind the scene.
You can download SnowBreeze’s source code from Github.

iH8Sn0w, the developer of Sn0wBreeze recently announced on Twitter that he had released an updated version to his infamous jailbreak tool. This new version of Sn0wBreeze supposedly works with every device on iOS 4.1, including the iPad iOS 3.2.2.
Sn0wBreeze is like PwnageTool for Windows. It allows you to create a custom firmware while preserving the baseband and hacktivating the phone, thus making it possible for you to unlock using UltraSn0w. But how reliable is Sn0wBreeze? Read More

This is not the complete title I wanted to use for this post. I wanted to say something like “Sn0wBreeze is Out – Who Cares?” but I thought it would have been insulting to iH8Sn0w who probably spent hours working on this new jailbreak.
I’ve never been a big fan of non-official jailbreaks (and by this I mean not endorsed by the Dev Team) because they come with tons of restrictions, and in the end very few people can actually use the jailbreak. So what’s up with Sn0wBreeze? Read More
By Sébastien Page on Sep 16, 2010
iH8Sn0w, the developer of Sn0wBreeze sent a tweet a few hours ago telling he had successfully jailbroken his iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) running iOS 4.2 beta. Apparently, Cydia, Icy or Rock won’t work though, which is kind of inconvenient and makes the jailbreak useless.
The point is he did manage to jailbreak the new beta release of iOS 4.2… Read More
