Sn0wbreeze 2.1 for iOS 4.1 released. #sn0wbreeze #ios

Those of you running a Windows box who weren’t willing to say good-bye to your unlock just for iOS 4.1 can finally put those worries aside. Sn0wbreeze 2.1 is officially out! With it comes the ability to create custom .ispw’s so you don’t have to upgrade the baseband, thereby preserving your unlock.

Sn0wbreeze 2.1 supports all models of iPod Touch and iPhone excluding 1st gen models, the iPad running 3.2.2, and the 2nd gen Apple TV.

Limera1n’d Pwnage Tool shows its face. Release expected within days.

Those of you wanting to jailbreak your iPhone 4 on the latest iOS 4.1 and preserve your unlock/baseband have but a few more days left of waiting. The Dev-Team has released the image above, teasing us with the impending release.

The Limera1n-powered exploit is currently Mac Windows only. So Mac users are surely chomping at the bit for some jailbreak action. Meanwhile, hacker iH8sn0w has already confirmed that Sn0wbreeze is close to completion meaning unlocks will once again be possible on the latest firmware.

For now, sit back and keep waiting. PwnageTool is close, with Sn0wbreeze not too far behind. Baseband-safe upgrading is almost here.

PwnageTool for Mac getting update this Sunday.

Good news for Mac users and jailbreak seekers — PwnageTool for Mac will be receiving an update this Sunday. This new release will make use of GeoHot’s Limera1n exploit, and not the SHatter exploit that was originally planned. Once the update drops, iPhones running iOS 4.1 (and jailbroken via a Mac) can finally update to 4.1 and preserve their unlock. New AppleTV users will also see some benefit from this new update. However, according to the Chronic-Team’s Dev-Team’s (whoops…I knew that) MuscleNerd, while the AppleTV will see some attention this weekend, app support will be spotty and extremely alpha in nature.

Windows users will have to wait a bit longer unfortunately. Sn0wbreeze 2.1 isn’t slated to release until a few days after PwnageTool. But at this point, a few more days after several weeks to months of waiting is nothing but a drop in the bucket.

iPhone 3G iOS 4.1 jailbreaking: redsn0w 0.9.6b1 and Sn0wbreeze 2.0

One OS and two different ways to crack it wide open. That’s what redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze aim to accomplish. For starters, what system do you run at home? redsn0w is Mac-only for the time being while Sn0wbreeze is Windows-only. The former has a Windows version in the works, but the Dev-Team hasn’t announced a release date just yet. Enough chit chat. Let’s get started.

redsn0w version (0.9.6b1) allows you to jailbreak your already upgraded iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G running iOS 4.1. Any other iDevice is currently not supported. Furthermore, if the iPhone users out there want to keep their unlock, they’ll want to continue avoiding iOS 4.1 until the Dev-Team has updated PwnageTool.

Sn0wbreeze 2.0 is also a Windows-only tool for the time being. But on the other hand, it is a bit more resourceful. The official release is tomorrow, September 23rd, so it’s not quite available yet. But once it drops tomorrow, users of the following devices will be able to create custom .ispw files, bypassing the baseband upgrade and allowing users to keep their unlocked status.

sn0wbreeze 1.6 has it’s way with iPhone 4.0 and your 2nd-gen iPod Touch

The general way an iPhone/iPod Touch update works is that you simply don’t upgrade right away — if you care about jailbreaking/unlocking that is. But iPhone 4.0 will be a different story thanks to “iH8sn0w” who’s apparently been hard at work since early April on cracking Apple’s latest beast.

The resulting success comes by way of sn0wbreeze 1.6 which iH8sn0w claims will easily jailbreak the iPhone 4.0 software on your 2nd-gen iPod Touch. Another version of sn0wbreeze which will also will include the 1st-gen Touch is said to be in the works. Look for the final release to drop sometime after Apple gives the rest of us a taste of 4.0.
