Sn0wbreeze 2.6.1 Available Now for Jailbreaking Verizon iPhone 4 on iOS 4.2.7

iH8sn0w, the developer behind popular jailbreaking tool “Sn0wbreeze” has just released Snowbreeze 2.6.1 bringing untethered jailbreak support for Verizon iPhone 4 running on recently released iOS 4.2.7. For users of iPhone 4 GSM and other iDevices Sn0wbreeze 2.6 is already available for untethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.2.

The step by step guide to jailbreak iOS 4.2.7 is same as we have posted in the case of iOS 4.3.2. Simply download and use Snowbreeze 2.6.1 instead of version 2.6 to jailbreak Verizon iPhone 4.

The official changelog and update for Snowbreeze 2.6.1:

sn0wbreeze 2.6.1: Verizon love!
Well, after i0n1c released his untether exploit for 4.3.1, Apple shortly
pushed out 4.3.2 AND 4.2.7. i0n1c’s payload was ported over to 4.3.2 in a
short period of time but not 4.2.7. This made Verizon users very

I originally ordered a Verizon iPhone 4 for my upcoming SHSH blobs dumper.
Then I + many others on twitter realized that an untether was not
available for 4.2.7. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been sick and didn’t do
much, but today I was finally able to get the strength to work on this
Verizon untether. Since i0n1c’s payload is not easily reversible, I went
to previous exploits.

After trying, pod2g’s + posixninja’s kernel exploit for 4.2.x is STILL in
4.2.7! After some more work, I managed to get this thing untethered!

So, this new release includes that new payload to untether + jailbreak 4.2.7.
For users who currently have a tethered 4.2.7 jailbreak via redsn0w
(by pointing to the 4.2.6 ipsw), I was able to contact my buddy @pushfix. Hes
managed to put together a Cydia package to untether your currently tethered
Verizon 4.2.7 phone.

* Just add the Cydia repo:
* Install the Cydia Package “Verizon Untether for 4.2.7”
* Reboot.
* Enjoy.
