Sn0wbreeze 2.9.9 Windows
Sn0wbreeze v2.9.9 is the updated version by iH8sn0w which has support for iSO 6.1, 6.0 and other Firmware by Apple. Snowbreeze 2.9.9 has been released after iOS 6.1 Untethered Jailbreak issue. Evasi0n and Sn0wbreeze got some problems so it was necessary to update Sn0wbreeze. Sn0wbreeze2.9.9 Windows has fixed issue with device not showing up in iTunes/xcode. Also iSn0wbreeze 2.9.9 for iOS6.1 has fixed the issues of building iPhone3,2 (iPhone 4 GSM-Rev2) IPSW. One thing is necessary to keep in mind that Sn0wbreeze2.9.9 will not support any A5 iDevice and it has only support for A4 devices having iOS 5/6 or higher.
If you’re having issues with your device not showing up in iTunes after running sn0wbreeze, install the evasi0n untether from Cydia.
SnowBreeze is the Jailbreak tool for Windows that is helpful for unlockers & those who want to specify advanced parameters for their Jailbreak. SnowBreeze 2.9.9 creates custom pre-Jailbroken firmware files that must be restored to your iOS device in order to be Jailbroken.
As stated many times in the past, sn0wbreeze cannot be updated to work on A5(X) devices until a low level exploit in DFU or iBoot is found and made public. Therefore, A5(X) users will have to rely on using the lovely absinthe.
A5(X) Baseband Preservation/Hacktivation?
For those running A5(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.
