What is New?
● Fixed issue with device not showing up in iTunes / xcode.
● Fixed bug when building iPhone3, 2 (iPhone 4 GSM Rev2) IPSW.
● Apple TV 2 bug fixes.
● Now adds evasi0n untether directly to Cydia (for future updates).
● 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.
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.
● 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.
Step 1: Download the latest version of Sn0wbreeze for Windows and save the file in a familiar location on your machine. Download iOS 6.1 for your device.
Step 2: Connect the relevant iOS device to the computer with the supplied USB cable.
Step 3: Run the Sn0wbreeze application on your Windows PC.
Note: Windows 8 users will need to first download and install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, steps for which are detailed here.
Step 4: Click the next blue arrow button to proceed. Select Browse for an IPSW to point Sn0wbreeze at the relevant firmware file for your device. Make sure that the Sn0wbreeze program doesn’t through up errors and is able to detect and verify your device.
Step 5: Select the Simple Mode option from the available list of modes and continue by clicking the next button to build a custom firmware. Sn0wbreeze will work its magic to create a custom built firmware file. When finished, the firmware file will be placed on the Desktop.
Step 6: The next step is to restore this custom firmware to your device through the familiar iTunes method. But before you do that, you need to put the connected iOS device into Pwned DFU mode using iREB option found on the top of Sn0wbreeze’s File Menu status bar.
Step 7: Once the device is in Pwned DFU, close Sn0wbreeze and start iTunes. Select the connected device from the left hand menu. Press and hold SHIFT key + click the Restore button in iTunes. This is will prompt iTunes to let you select the desired IPSW file. Select the custom built firmware file from the Desktop and let iTunes restore it to the device.
Once the restore is complete, you will have a jailbroken iOS 6.1 custom firmware running on your device.
Cydia running on iOS 6.1So there you have it, an untethered iOS 6.1 jailbreak using the powerful and popular Sn0wbreeze tool.
