In a time when so many untethered jailbreak tools are available, the latest release of Sn0wbreeze for Windows by renowned iPhone developer, ih9sn0w is going to create a lot of stir. The good news is that Sn0wbreeze 2.9.4 supports untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1 for A4 devices. Some of the top A4 powered devices include iPod Touch 4G, Apple TV 2G, iPhone 4 and iPad 1.
While the release of Sn0wbreeze should be able to take care of the problems faced by users who possess A4 powered devices, still this latest jailbreak tool does not cover A5 and A5X powered devices. The reason why A5 and AX5 devices such as Apple iPad 1, iPad 2 and Apple TV 3G are not supported by Sn0wbreeze 2.9.4 is that such devices have no bootrom exploit available. Whereas, Sn0wbreeze mainly uses limera1n exploit by Geohot to jailbreak A4 powered devices. Moreover, Sn0wbreeze also does not offer support for iOS 5.1.1 9B208 until the expected release of Absinthe tool updates untethered jailbreak support for Apple iPhone 4 GSM.
As far instructions of using Sn0wbreeze to jailbreak A4 powered devices is concerned, they are pretty much the same as with the previous versions of this tool. Since Sn0wbreeze is up for fully untethered jailbreak on the latest devices, you can also make use of iBooty to skip past the booting tethered part without having to use iOS 5.1.1 IPSW. All users can now download Sn0wbreeze 2.9.4 for Windows from the internet.
