Sn0wbreeze is an alternatives jailbreak tool that you can use to jailbreak you device instead of using typical Redsn0w jailbreak tool. The snowbreeze jailbreak works in the same way only it is a little different in way of installation i.e as compared to Redsn0w that installs a payload on your device and snowbreeze constructs the custom ipsw while jailbreaking your device. The custom ipsw that is generated by jailbreaking using s0wbreeze can be used later for downgrading and restoring your device’s baseband.
The latest update was announced today by iH8Sn0w giving the sn0wbreeze 2.9.7 that is compatible to jailbreake iPhone 3GS and A4 devices on iOS 6.0.1.
If you want to jailbreak 6.0.1 using snowbreeze you can check my old tutorial on How To Jailbreak Using SnowBreeze, just follow the steps but use the latest version of snowbreeze.
What is New?
● Added 6.0 (10A403)/6.0.1 (10A523) support. (Only includes iPhone 3GS & A4 devices).
● The 6.0/6.0.1 is currently a tethered based jailbreak via iBooty (except for iPhone 3GS old bootrom users).
● SAM is built-in for iOS 6 hacktivations. (Hacktivated phones can reboot to a semi-tethered state after being activated [rather than just hang at the Apple Logo]). Kudos @sbingner!
● Use iFaith mode after selecting/downloading the appropriate IPSW for your device. You will then be prompted to browse for SHSH blobs for the IPSW you have selected.
● Remember to enter a PWNED DFU state with sn0wbreeze’s iREB button in the top bar of sn0wbreeze prior to (SHIFT + Restoring) the custom signed IPSW!
iREB & iOS 6:
Due to some changes in iOS 6, the current public standalone version of iREB will NOT enter a proper PWNED DFU state for restoring to custom iOS 6 IPSWs. An update for the standalone version should come sometime this week. In the meantime, use the iREB tab located in sn0wbreeze’s top status bar to enter a proper PWNED DFU state.
As stated many times in the past, sn0wbreeze cannot be updated to work on A5(X)/A6(X) devices until a low level exploit in DFU or iBoot is found and made public.
A5(X)/A6(X) Baseband Preservation/Hacktivation?
For those running A5(X)/A6(X) devices and need to preserve your baseband, there is nothing you can do at the moment. For those wanting to hacktivate, the only advice I can give is to buy the carrier’s SIM (the one its locked to obviously) on ebay. The SIM does not have to be active with the carrier to activate the phone.
● Windows 8 users currently need to use this workaround to run sn0wbreeze.
● iPad baseband will fail to flash on iOS 4.0 –> iOS 4.2.1 restores.
● iPod Touch 2G 4.x.x restores fail.
You can download Sn0wbreeze 2.9.7 from our free jailbreak download page.

Jailbreak 6.0.1 Untethered /Tethered: You can jailbreak 6.0.1 untethered and tethered for pre A5 devices but limited to iPhone 4, 3GS and iPod Touch 4G only. The jailbreak tool which you will use for 6.0.1 jailbreak is RedSn0w 0.9.15b3 or 0.9.15b2. Remember you will also need to download the iOS 6.0 firmware even if you have upgraded to 6.0.1 already.
This iOS 6.0.1 jailbreak is tethered for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch. If you have iPhone 3GS Old Bootrom this is Untethered iOS 6.0.1 Jailbreak. If you want to know whether your bootrom is old or new simply go to Settings => General => About and check the model number if it starts from MC it is new bootrom and if it starts from MB it is old bootrom. So if you have old bootrom you are lucky and you can fully enjoy the iOS 6.0.1 Untethered jailbreak. So follow below steps to jailbreak iPhone 4,3gs and ipod touch.
How To Jailbreak 6.0.1 Untethered /Tethered
Step 1: Download the iOS 6.0 firmware ipsw for your device from below links
- Download iOS 6.0 for iPhone 4 GSM
- Download iOS 6.0 for iPhone 4 CDMA
- Download iOS 6.0 for iPhone 3GS
- Download iOS 6.0 for iPod touch 4th-generation
Step 2: Download RedSn0w 0.9.15b3 from Jailbreak Download Page and extract the .zip file.
Step 3: Open the extracted folder and run the RedSn0w.exe file by Right clicking and Open As Administrator in Windows.
Step 4: In the main RedSn0w Window open Extras =>Select IPSW and browse and select the ipsw file which you downloaded in step 1, this is 6.0 ipsw but it is required to jailbreak 6.0.1.
Step 5: Go back to main screen and click jailbreak the window will show message "Preparing Jailbreak Data" and then "Patching Kernel" after that it will show you options to select. Make sure Install Cydia is selected you can also select other options but if first and third options are already selected leave it as it is. Click Next
Step 6: At this stage RedSn0w will display some instructions and you need to turn off your device before clicking Next.
Step 7: Put your device in DFU mode by pressing the combinations mentioned on the screen. Once you put in DFU mode the jailbreak will start and finish after a while. If Cydia is not there don't worry.
Step 8: Boot Tethered 6.0.1 Jailbreak:
This is final step to make your iOS 6.0.1 jailbreak useable, go to RedSn0w main screen and click Extras => Select IPSW and select the same iPSW as in step 4. Now select the option of Just Boot in Extras. Follow the same steps for putting your device in DFU mode and your device will reboot with iOS 6.0.1 jailbreak and Cydia installed.
