“Sn0wBreeze” clamors for your 3.1.3 jailbreaking attention.

Before we go any further, I must stress that I have never used Sn0wBreeze in any form and cannot attest to it’s effectiveness in jailbreaking your iDevice. With that said, continue on diligent reader.

The seasoned veteran on the iPhone/iPod Touch jailbreaking scene is the hometown favorite — the Dev-Team. Many people are impatient however, and can’t stand the whole wipe, build custom ROM, restore procedure. For them, a simple patch that gets the show on the road all without having to restore is where it’s at. I’ve had mixed results with the ‘ol patched jailbreak method. With that said, does “Sn0wBreeze” have “it” in regards to effective, fast, and reliable jailbreaking?

Since my iPhone was demoted to mere iPod, I haven’t been quite into the jailbreaking loop as I used to be. Because of that, I can honestly admit that I’ve never heard of Sn0wBreeze. Though Blackra1n and Sn0wBreeze sound like two totally different beasts, their goal is the same — to jailbreak iPhone 3.1.3. Though how they both go about reaching the less restricted end goal is pretty different. Blackra1n is a simple patcher. It expoits a common hole in the iPhone OS’s security allowing a jailbreak without a custom firmware. Again, I’ve had mixed results as have several colleagues of mine. In short: You’re mileage will vary.

Sn0wBreeze on the other hand works much like PwnageTool for Mac — it creates a custom firmware giving you the most complete and comprehensive jailbreak process.

I gave the video below a couple of views to get the details of how it all goes down. It isn’t as simple as pressing a button or two and sitting back, free to twiddle your thumbs. It will take some user involvement. Don’t get me wrong though, it’s like it’s rocket science or anything.

If you’re feeling adventurous and confident in yourself, watch the video below to get acquainted with Sn0wBreeze and then head on over to the Sn0wBreeze site to get the tools needed for the job. When all is said and done and for better or worse, let us know how it goes. I’m ever so curious…

  • Sn0wBreeze is Windows program that supports iPhone 2G/3G/3GS(old bootroom) and iPod Touch 1st Gen and 2nd Gen (non MC)

    Got it working. I used Sn0wbreeze to make custom 3.1.3 firmware, ran iReb 3.12, then iTunes to install custom firmware. This all worked to jailbreak my phone. Lastely I installed AppSync so I can sync my apps in iTunes. Thats it. Enjoy your JAILBROKEN iPHONE 3G with 3.1.3 FIRMWARE. Apple can kiss my a$$.

    hey Aly Shehata got a question for you. I accidentalIy upgraded my Jailbroken 3.1.2 3G to 3.1.3. I also used sn0wbreeze to jailbreak my 3G with 3.1.3 and looked good until I tried to copy my apps back on my phone and it gave me an error. Did you successfully install your apps back on your phone? If so how did you do it?

      Probably not looking to good for you. The newer iPhone 3GS is jailbreak resistant I’m afraid.

      You should be able to wipe and start fresh, jailbreak and then unlock. BE SURE TO GET A 3.1.2 FIRMWARE DOWNLOADED FIRST as iTunes will automatically try to bump you up to 3.1.3.

      As long as you have an iPhone/3G/3GS(earlier model and bootrom) or an iPod Touch 1st or 2nd gen you should be fine.

      Yup, you’re kind of foobar’d at the moment. Hang tight though. It shouldn’t be too long until someone figures out a new backdoor.

      Ya, you should be good to go as long as you have the old bootrom (read: an older iPhone 3GS)

    I used it once one someones iPhone, just because I wanted to try it, and anything that creates a custom IPSW, ie PwnageTool, I am always for supporting, so I gave it a shot on my wind0ze boot and I like it. Great, easy to use, just like PwnageTool, if you have wind0ze and don’t want the patched firmware, I’d highly recommend using this, or PwnageTool on the Mac!
