iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak: How to Use Sn0wbreeze Version 2.9.1 to Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1

  on

A few hours ago, the Canadian hacker iH8sn0w released the latest version of his popular jailbreak utility - Sn0wBreeze 2.9.1 after fixing numerous bugs, including the iPhone 3G iPad-flashing issue.

Just a bump on sn0wbreeze, pushed to v2.9.1... iPhone 3G never flashed the iPad baseband when chosen, and fixed PAM issues, iH8sn0w tweeted.

Early this week, iH8sn0w released Sn0wBreeze 2.9, which comes with some new features, such as support for pod2g's iOS 5.0.1 untethered exploit. It also allows users to remove the OTA base from Settings app and incorporates key UI improvements.

It's said that Sn0wbreeze is a Windows users' wonderful alternative to RedSn0w.

But some issues have popped up after people used it. Particularly, when iPhone 3G users tries to flash over a custom iPad baseband, a few notable issues appeared. Fortunately, in the same week, iH8sn0w released the fix.

In addition, a Twitter use @AyudaParaCydia asked iH8sn0w, Lets say I have a Snowbreeze or Pwnage Tool built IPSW. If I wanted to stich my AP ticket and my SHSH with ifaith. Can I use it?

iH8sn0w answered, Sn0wbreeze v2.9 and up has iFaith mode built-in. Simply browse for TinyUmbrella or iFaith blobs to embed into your IPSW.
