If you were unable to jailbreak ios 5.1 using RedSn0w as mentioned my previous post and you were having some unexpected errors in jailbreak 5.1. You can jailbreak your ios 5.1 using the updated version of Sn0wBreeze 2.9.2 jailbreak software download. iH8sn0w has recently released his jailbreaking tool for ios 5.1 that works on a principal of building a custom firmware like we do in RedSn0w by using the option of “Custom ipsw”. This is a tethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 that means every time you need to restart your iphone or ipod touch or ipad, you will need your computer to reboot your device.
SnowBreeze is compatible with Windows only and if you are having Mac you can read my guide on How to jailbreak ios 5.1 using RedSn0w.
This ios 5.1 jailbreak is NOT compatible with A5 devices i.e. iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and the new ipad.
How to jailbreak iOS 5.1 using Sn0wBreeze
- Download Sn0wBreeze 2.9.2 jailbreak software by Clicking Here
- Open Sn0wbreeze by double clicking the executable file, click the blue arrow to go to the next screen. (no need to connect your device to computer at this step)
- Now locate and select your 5.1 ipsw and click the next arrow.
- Select the mode carefully in which you want to run in. If you are relying on a carrier unlock, you should select “Expert Mode”. If you are not confident about the options just leave the default and don’t change anything and Click next.
- Sn0wbreeze will create custom IPSW file for your device, wait for completion of process.
- Now connect your iphone, ipod touch or ipad to your computer and follow the on-screen directions to enter the DFU (device firmware update) mode.
- Open iTunes and wait while your device is detected and displayed in iTunes main Window. After your device is detected and a window appears showing that a device has been detected in DFU mode, hold the shift key and click “Restore” button. iTunes will ask about the custom ipsw file which you created using Sn0wBreeze browse and locate it and click OK/Next. iTunes will start restoring your device with the new ipsw. This will take some time.
