Sn0wbreeze 2.9.1 is history. Now Sn0wbreeze version 2.9.2 is here.
For those who are not aware or familiar, Sn0wbreeze is a Windows alternative to using Redsn0w to jailbreak your iDevices. It has been created by iOS hacker iH8sn0w. Redsn0w may also has a Windows counterpart but Sn0wbreeze does not have a Mac version. But there is a good news.
The latest Sn0wbreeze update, version 2.9.2, supports iOS 5.1 for a tethered jailbreak on all non-A5 devices. The iPhone 3GS with the old bootrom will still have an untethered jailbreak as they always have with iOS 5.
Many bug fixes have been implemented to aid along with the iPad baseband and iPhone 2G. The iPhone Dev-Team’s iPhone 2G permanent unlock ‘BootNeuter’ has been added back into Sn0wbreeze as well.
Sn0wbreeze v2.9.2 supports all iDevices except iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and Apple TV. The following firmwares are supported:
*4.2.1 – 4.2.8
*4.3 – 4.3.3
Sn0wbreeze will not be able to jailbreak A5 Devices – not even tethered. Redsn0w also cannot jailbreak any A5 devices. The A5 device lineup does not have a bootrom exploit yet. Currently, there is currently no way to downgrade your firmware back to iOS 5.0.1 if you have upgraded to iOS 5.1 because Apple has stopped signing the iOS 5.0.1 firmware for all devices.
