Just like Chronic Dev Team’s GreenPois0n, the Windows counterpart of PwnageTool 4.1 known as Sn0wbreeze 2.1 has been fully open sourced and it’s source code is available to public for free. What’s the point of making it open source? You can modify the tool according to your own liking or even improve it for the betterment of the jailbreaking community under the terms and conditions laid down by General Public License (GNU).
Sn0wbreeze 2.1 for iOS 4.1 / 3.2.2 is now available for download. If any of the existing iOS 4.1 jailbreak tools didn’t work for you, you can give Sn0wbreeze 2.1 a try! For those of you who don’t know, like PwnageTool for Mac, Sn0wbreeze for Windows can be used to create custom firmware files for iOS 4.1 without the upgraded baseband so that you can unlock iOS 4.1 (05.13.04 baseband) with existing version of Ultrasn0w.
The iPhone Dev Team has just released an updated version 0.9.6b2 of Redsn0w which is based on Geohot’s limera1n exploit and it can jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPad (on iOS 3.2.2) and iPod touch 4G / 3G / 2G (Non MC Model only). Besides, this new version also offers custom boot land recovery logos for the older devices like iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) iPod touch 2G (Non MC), and iPhone 3G, along with the ability to let Windows users restore to a custom IPSW files that are cooked using PwnageTool for Mac.
Mac version of Limera1n is now available for download. Even though the instructions for Mac are exactly the same as the one for Windows, I thought I would do the guide again for our Mac users who come here, searching for the Mac version of the instructions.
