We have a guide that will help you along your Jailbreaking way. Sn0wbreeze 2.9.5 can perform an untethered Jailbreak by creating custom firmware and works on any of the following devices:
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4
- iPad 1
- iPod Touch 3G
- iPod Touch 4G
Just like using the Pwnage Tool 5.1.1, this jailbreak will only work on the above A4 devices. It will preserve your baseband and you will still be able to unlock your device with Ultrasn0w or Gevey SIM unlock. This method is best for those who already rely on the previously mentioned unlock tools. If you’re not dependent on these it is strongly recommended you Jailbreak your device using the Absinthe 2.0.2 method.
As with all tutorials, please ensure you back up your device before you begin and proceed at your own risk. ConsumingTech will not take responsibility for any loss of data or damage which may occur to your device whilst completing the tutorial.
Step 1. Download the following:
- Sn0wBreeze 2.9.5
- iOS 5.1.1 for your specific device
Step 2. Once download is complete you will need to extract the .zip and then launch/ execute ‘sn0wbreeze-v2.9.5.exe’. When the Sn0wbreeze window opens, click ‘OK’ followed by the ‘Next Arrow’.
Step 3. You will need to select ‘Browse for IPSW’, and then locate the iOS 5.1.1 IPSW file we asked you to download in step 1. This will be specific for the device you are trying to Jailbreak. Once Sn0wbreeze has recognized and verified the file, click the ‘Next Arrow’.
Step 4. You will be asked to select a mode, choose ‘Expert Mode’.
Step 5. The main screen will appear, select ‘General’ before clicking the ‘Next Arrow’.
Note: If you do not have an official carrier SIM card you will need to check the option ‘Activate the iPhone [Hactivate]’. Then press ‘OK’ and click the ‘Next Arrow’.
Step 6. This should bring you back to the main screen, this time select ‘Build IPSW’ then‘Next Arrow’.
Step 7. Sn0wbreeze will now start building your custom iOS 5.1.1 IPSW. There will be two options whilst you wait, either watch the spinner or play PacMan.
Step 8. Once the custom IPSW has been created it will be visable on your desktop and you will see a ‘DONE!’ message.
Step 9. After you click ‘OK’ you will be instructed to put your device into Pwned DFU Mode. This is different to standard DFU Mode.
Step 10. Click the ‘Start’ button to continue following the on-screen prompts. Then to place your device in Pwned DFU Mode you need to hold down the ‘Power’ + ‘Home’buttons for 10 seconds. Next release the ‘Power’ button whilst continuing to hold down the ‘Home’ button for a further 10 to 30 seconds.
Step 11. You will be prompted by Sn0wbreeze when you have entered Pwned DFU mode on your device. Then open iTunes and hold down the ‘Alt/Option’ key and select ‘Restore’. When the pop up appears, select the custom iOS 5.1.1 IPSW which will be saved on your desktop. Once located, select it and let iTunes do the rest.
