sn0wbreeze v2.9.3

What is New?

  • Added Apple TV 2 support for iOS 4.4.3/4.4.4.
  • Fixed rare issues with iOS 5.0.1 where it would halt on the Apple upon boot.

  • Just adding this in mainly for users who dumped their SHSH blobs. On the initial boot, the Apple TV may have a black screen for 60 seconds after setting up the Apple TV. This is normal.

    sn0wbreeze v2.9.2

    What is New?

  • Added Tethered Jailbreak support for 3GS/iPod Touch 3/A4 Users on iOS 5.1 (9B176)
  • iPhone 3GS old-bootrom users are untethered on 5.1/9B176 (as usual).
  • Bug Fixes (Specifically with the iPad baseband and iPhone 2G).
  • Re-added the iPhone Dev-Team's iPhone 2G permanent unlock 'BootNeuter'.

  • Why is there no A5 support? :~(

    A low level (DFU/iBoot/LLB) exploit is required to start the restoration of custom IPSWs. The past two jailbreaks (JailbreakMe & absinthe) for the A5 worked within iOS itself. These exploits are not capable of bringing the iDevice into a state where it will accept custom IPSWs. Therefore, an A5 device cannot currently downgrade to an iOS revision that Apple is no longer signing (even with SHSH blobs) and it cannot preserve the baseband when updating to a newer iOS revision.

    While the future may always seem to get more narrower... Keep your head high and continue to be open minded.

    iOS 5.1 now public! (A5 users beware!)

    Apple released iOS 5.1 to the public today.

    This post is to remind users to backup their SHSH blobs by using TinyUmbrella.

    Please refrain from updating.


    Even if you cache your SHSH blobs for your A5 devices with TinyUmbrella, they will not be usable at this time. A loophole or DFU/iBoot level exploit is needed to overcome the iBEC apticket requirement upon restore.

    If you would like to restore to 5.0.1 (9A405/9A406) anytime soon on A5 devices, I strongly suggest you do it now while Apple is still signing the aptickets.

    Update: As of March 8, 2012 at 6PM [EST], Apple is no longer signing 5.0.1 (9A405/9A406)
