Whenever a new tether or untether jailbreak is released, every hacker, researcher and developer updates his jailbreak tools and apps to support it. As iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 4G is now available, iH8sn0w, the developer behind many jailbreak tools also updated his popular “Sn0wbreeze” software to provide untethered jailbreak to Windows based users.
Sn0wbreeze v2.9 supports only iOS 5.0.1. The users who are still having devices running on iOS 5.0 or below can now safely update their devices to the latest firmware build. However, those users who rely on unlock have to install a custom iOS 5.0.1 firmware on their devices after preserving the baseband. And this is what sn0wbreeze does, i.e., preservers the baseband, in addition to jailbreaking the firmware.
Besides the basic functions Sn0wbreeze 2.9 allows us to remove the OTA base from Settings.app. This new version also brings UI improvements.
