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

  1. Download Sn0wBreeze 2.9.2 jailbreak software by Clicking Here
  2. 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)
  3. Now locate and select your 5.1 ipsw and click the next arrow.
  4. 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.
  5. Sn0wbreeze will create custom IPSW file for your device, wait for completion of process.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Last step is to Booting Tethered for which you will use iH8sn0w’s iREB, just download and run it while your device is connected to computer it will restart your device and it will be tethered jailbroken.
  9. This is a tethered jailbreak for ios 5.1 that means every time you need to restart your device you will do step 8.

You can jailbreak 5.0.1 using Absinthe for iPhone 4S and iPad 2. The jailbreak which you will get by following procedure is semi-tethered which means you have to apply the last steps every time you need to restart your device. Similarly if you need to unlock or you already have unlocked your device it is better to not update to ios 5.1.

Many recent reports have revealed that iOS 5.1 may be released on 9 March 2012. The most recent update about ios 5.1 was that Apple has published new profiles for many phone carriers  which are compatible with iOS 5.1 and are set for release on March 9. So it seems obvious that the 5.1 version will be available soon for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 3G/4G, iPad and iPad 2.

The released carrier profiles are intended for operators in Japan, France, Greece, Finland and Sweden. These updated include updates to the default APN, special dialing codes and other items that will ensure smooth network connectivity after an ios 5.1 update is downloaded.

Due to shortage of ipad2 in the market it is expected that Apple is going to release iPad 3 and most probably the release of ios 5.1 and ipad 3 will be on same dates.

As I reported earlier ios 5.1 beta versions are already released for developers and I believe the hackers are also working to jailbreak ios 5.1 and after release of ios 5.1 we will start struggling to jailbreak it with the help of our loving hackers/jailbreakers.

Note: If you intend to upgrade to ios 5.1 I recommend you to preserve the SHSH blobs in case you may need to downgrade if unlock is not available for new iOS 5.1.
