Whenever Apple releases a new iOS version, whether it is a beta version, the developers of jailbreak tools update their software to make them compatible with the latest release. This cat and mouse play is still going on. To irritate iOS developers at Cupertino and to amuse jailbreakers, iH8sn0w, the developer behind snowbreeze has just release an updated version, that is Snowbreeze 2.8 beta 7 to support iOS 5 beta 7.
Snowbreeze beta 7 can perform all those functions which its predecessor did. It builds the jailbroken iOS 5 beta 7 custom firmware and hacktivates the device if you don’t have official SIM to activate your iPhone. Snowbreeze 2.8 beta 7 can also remove the UDID developer check and beta time from iOS 5 beta 7 for those users who don’t have access to Apple’s Developer Program. However, we highly recommend you to purchase the membership of Dev Program which costs $99 for a year instead of using illegal means to get the above mentioned goals.

* iPhone 3GS (old bootrom)…..NO
