Earlier this week, we reported about some new features that the hacker iH8sn0w has added to Sn0wbreeze on its second anniversary.
Now for those who are interested in jailbreaking related news, Sn0wbreeze has been released with the new update.
Sn0wbreeze is a Windows alternative to redsn0w. It can provide you with an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 using pod2g’s exploits. Version 2.9 has brought support for innumerable different iOS firmware versions when it was released on its second birthday.
iH8sn0w has pushed out a new version of Sn0wbreeze (version 2.9.1) on 19 January 2012, to address some problems that plagued some users who were using Sn0wbreeze version 2.9. The update is not a very big update. One of these problems would cause an iPhone 3G, not to flash the iPad base-band when chosen. So far, there has been positive feedback on version 2.9.1 that it fixes the iPhone 3G base-band issue that existed in version 2.9. Now iPhone 3G owners can try to apply the iPad base-band to their custom firmware today with sn0wbreeze. After doing it, they should find that it implements it correctly without any errors. Another minor fix has to do with a PAM problem which is now fully resolved.
Sn0wbreeze v2.9.1 supports all iDevices except iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and Apple TV. The following firmwares are supported by the new version:
5. 4.2.1 – 4.2.8
6. 4.3 – 4.3.3
