An updated version of sn0wbreeze the popular jailbreaking tool for the Apple’s iTouch family was released last night. Sn0wbreeze 2.0 allows iPod Touch 3G, 2G and iPhone 2G, 3G and 3GS owners to jailbreak their iOS 4.1 installation.
Users should keep in mind that the latest version of Sn0wbreeze won’t be able to jailbreak iPad, the iPhone 4 and the iPod Touch 4G.
All iTouch models should be running on jailbroken iOS 3.1.2, except for the iPod Touch 2G (MC-Model) and iPhone 2G. The iPod Touch 1G/2G (Non-MC) and the iPhone 3G must be running a jailbroken version any iOS firmware. The application does not update your iTouch’s baseband, thus preserving your unlock.
Soon after the release of sn0wbreeze 2.0, many users reported an Error 37 in iTunes while restoring a custom firmware. The application since then has received an update to fix this issue. Click here to download sn0wbreeze 2.0.1.
Yesterday @ih8sn0w had promised to release Sn0wbreeze 1.8 to jailbreak iPhone 3GS on iOS 4.1 and iPod Touch 2G/3G running iOS 4.1. Today, @iH8sn0w has officially released sn0wbreeze 1.8 to jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 2G.
Currently sn0wbreeze 1.8 only supports jailbreaking the iOS 4.1 beta based devices including iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G. iPhone 3G users will have to use redsn0w 0.95 to jailbreak their iPhone.
If you are using iOS 4 and are looking for an iOS 4 jailbreak, you will have to use redsn0w 0.9.5 to jailbreak iOS 4 iPhone 3G /iPod Touch 2G and sn0wbreeze 1.7 to jailbreak iOS 4.1 on iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G.
If you have updated to iOS 4.0.1 you can also jailbreak iOS 4.0.1 on iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G and unlock iPhone 3G 4.0.1 with Ultrasn0w. If you haven’t upgraded to iOS 4.1 yet, you might also want to backup your iOS 4 SHSH blogs, before Apple stops allowing you, so that you can downgrade iOS 4.1 to iOS 4.
Once again, this jailbreak is only intended for developers, so stay away from it if you are not one. Download sn0wbreeze 1.8 from here, here or here.

iH8sn0w has just released a new version of the Sn0wbreeze jailbreaking application. We had told you yesterday that a new version of the Sn0wbreeze application is expected to be released today. The Sn0wbreeze 1.7 application now supports iPhone 3GS based on older as well as newer bootroms, along with iPod Touch 2G (MC and non-MC models) and the iPod Touch 3G.
Sn0wbreeze v1.7 is the first jailbreaking application to support iPhone 3GS based on newer bootroms. However, these newer bootroms based iPhone 3GS must be running on iOS 3.1.2 or must have their iOS 3.1.2 SHSH blobs saved. Without either of these, users will not be able to jailbreak their iPhone 3GS on iOS4.
In addition, this jailbreak will be a tethered one, which means users need to connect their iPhone to a PC, whenever they turn it off, to turn it back on. Readers can find the step-by-step guide to jailbreak their iPhone 3GS here.
A couple of days ago, the folks behind PwnageTool released an updated version of the software which allowed jailbreaking iPhone 3GS/3G and iPod touch running on iOS 4. Now iH8sn0w has released an update for his jailbreaking application sn0wbreeze. The new version is numbered 1.6.1. The new version allows jailbreaking iPhone 3G, and iPod Touch. iPhone 3GS having the older bootroms are supported.
Newer bootroms based iPhone 3GS are still not supported. Users should keep in mind that the device must already be jailbroken beforehand. Sn0wbreeze will not be able to jailbreak an iPod Touch/iPhone that is not previously jailbroken. Sadly, neither iOS4 nor sn0wbreeze supports original iPhone and iPod Touch 2G.
In addition, users should keep in mind that the Spirit jailbreaking application is incompatible with sn0wbreeze. Here is the link to the sn0wbreeze application.
The latest iOS4 update for iPhone 3G does not enable multitasking and wallpaper support due to Apple restrictions, however, the iPhone jailbreak tools sn0wbreeze 1.6 and redsn0w 0.9.5 beta will allow users to enable Multitasking and wallpaper support for the home screen while jailbreaking the iPhone.
Screenshots for the new updates were shared by the iPhone dev team and the sn0wbreeze developer. The screenshots show options for users to enable multitasking, wallpaper support and battery percentage on iPhone 3G.
So rest assured, once these tools are out you will be able to enjoy both multitasking and wallpaper for the home screen on the iPhone 3G. The wait for these jailbreaking tools for iPhone for iOS4 should not be long now.
