Sn0wbreeze 2.6. has been released by iH8sn0w that allow Verizon iPhone 4 users to jailbreak their iPhone on iOS 4.2.7.
According to iPhonehacks:
“Last week Sn0wbreeze 2.6 was released to allows GSM iPhone users who want to jailbreak and also unlock their iPhone to update their iPhone with a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.3.2 firmware while preserving the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w.”
Here are the following information provided by iH8sn0w in the release notes:
“Well, after i0n1c released his untether exploit for 4.3.1, Apple shortly pushed out 4.3.2 AND 4.2.7. i0n1c’s payload was ported over to 4.3.2 in a short period of time but not 4.2.7. This made Verizon users very frustrated.”
“I originally ordered a Verizon iPhone 4 for my upcoming SHSH blobs dumper. Then I + many others on twitter realized that an untether was not available for 4.2.7. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been sick and didn’t do much, but today I was finally able to get the strength to work on this Verizon untether. Since i0n1c’s payload is not easily reversible, I went to previous exploits.”
After trying, pod2g’s + posixninja’s kernel exploit for 4.2.x is STILL in
4.2.7! After some more work, I managed to get this thing untethered!
So, this new release includes that new payload to untether + jailbreak 4.2.7.
Sn0wbreeze 2.6.1 supports an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2, iOS 4.2.7 for following devices like GSM Phone 4, Verizon iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G and iPad 1.
