sn0wbreeze v2.9.7


What is New?

  • 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!

  • Downgrading:

  • Use iFaith mode after selecting/downloading the appropriate IPSW for your device. You will then be prompted to browse for SHSH blobs for the IPSW you have selected. 
  • Remember to enter a PWNED DFU state with sn0wbreeze's iREB button in the top bar of sn0wbreeze prior to (SHIFT + Restoring) the custom signed IPSW!

  • iREB & iOS 6:

  • Due to some changes in iOS 6, the current public standalone version of iREB will NOT enter a proper PWNED DFU state for restoring to custom iOS 6 IPSWs. An update for the standalone version should come sometime this week. In the meantime, use the iREB tab located in sn0wbreeze's top status bar to enter a proper PWNED DFU state.
  • iREB has been updated to r6 to support iOS 6 custom IPSW restores.


    A5(X)/A6(X) Support?:

    As stated many times in the past, sn0wbreeze cannot be updated to work on A5(X)/A6(X) devices until a low level exploit in DFU or iBoot is found and made public.

    A5(X)/A6(X) Baseband Preservation/Hacktivation?

    For those running A5(X)/A6(X) devices and need to preserve your baseband, there is nothing you can do at the moment. For those wanting to hacktivate, the only advice I can give is to buy the carrier's SIM (the one its locked to obviously) on ebay. The SIM does not have to be active with the carrier to activate the phone.

    Known Bugs/Issues:

  • Windows 8 users currently need to use this workaround to run sn0wbreeze.
  • iPad baseband will fail to flash on iOS 4.0 --> iOS 4.2.1 restores.
  • iPod Touch 2G 4.x.x restores fail.

  • Report any issues to iH8sn0w via Email (iH8sn0w@iH8sn0w.com) or Twitter (@iH8sn0w)

      1. Works fine.

        I'm on ios 6.0.1 and use the gevey sim in my iphone 4.
        I activate my iphone with the sim of a friend.
        But I don't have a jailbreak.

        ultrasn0w isn't supported in ios 6

        Delete
      2. install ultrasn0w then install ultrasn0w fixer -- google it and you will find itssource ... I unlocked my iphone 3gs oldbootrom with ios 6.0.1 using this way ...

    13. hi everyone

      i have an iphone 3gs new boot room base band 6.15.00 and upgraded it to ios6.0.1 with snowbreeze 2.9.7. it is tethered jailbreak, and i unlocked it with ultrasnow fixer. the phone is working fine for me but the problem is that when i connect the phone to itunes, it detects my phone to be locked and it does not allow me to restored my backup contacs etc or even copy music or videos.

      i dont have original sim so i bypassed the setup screens by deleting the system.app folder.

      i really need itunes to work for me because the apps keeps popping to connect with itunes for push notification settings and bla bla.

      would it be possible to activate my phone by downgrading to some other base band ?

      any help would be appreciated thanks in advance

    19. Is there any way to reduce root partition size from 1200 mb to say 700 mb? My iTouch is only 8 gb. Previous sn0wbreeze did not used this huge root partition. Redsn0w takes lower space to JB my iTouch. Can't you fix this problem mate?

    20. SNOWBREEZ 2.9.7 DOES NOT SAVES BASEBANDS FOR IPHONE 3g & 3gs. SERIOUS BUG!!!!

    21. Hey! Thanks a bunch for the software! The only thing that didn't work is the activation - set it under expert mode, but still, after boot phone required activation. Bypassed it with folder removal. iPhone 4 with old BB without an original sim.

    32. Sn0wbreeze is one of the most powerfull iPhone jailbreak software after the iOS 6.1.3 release

      ReplyDelete
    33. I have many success jailbreaking iphones but recently i've almost as always semi-bricked the phone by jailbreaking for the reason i just want to update the firmware version. So, we could say i'm traumatize jailbreaking the iphone, my recently one is the white screen of death and the yellow screen of death, cause by upgrading and jailbreaking on 5.1.1. I had no choice but to leave it as it is for over a month and when i've tried just a few hourr ago, i've manage to see some graphics while just boot tethered using redsnow so i know i'm on to something, didn't stop until i've manage to fix it but using itunes and updating to the latest firmware 6.1.3, now i feel like i'm just going in circles. Need to bypass activation opening without jailbreaking the iphone's new firmware and that's what happen that's why i had gotten the yellow and white and blue screen of death. Now, is there a way using ifunbox or iexplorer to see the setup folder even without jailbreak so i can bypass the activation? I'm an iphone modifier/jailbreak and what not and also an owner of an seo service website.

    35. I used snowbreeze to jailbreak my phone and I need to unlock my phone too. I had my iphone factory unlock at Jailbreakhome.com. It is a permanent unlock and it can unlock your phone with any baseband.
