Pwnagetool; Sn0wBreeze Untethered Jailbreaks Released

Posted In iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Jailbreak News - By Greg On Tuesday, February 15th, 2011 With 1 Comment

It seems with iOS 4.3 looming on the horizon, that The Chronic-Dev Team, iPhone-Dev team, and iH8Sn0w have all been working together to get their untethered jailbreaks released and stable for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Here is the rough time line:

  • December 26-29 The iPhone-Dev team released RedSn0w untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2
  • Feburary 5th-10th The Chronic-Dev team released Greenpois0n untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2
  • Feburary 15th (today) the iPhone-Dev Team released PwnageTool 4.2 and iH8Sn0w released Sn0wBreeze untethered jailbreaks for iOS 4.2

It seems that The iPhone-Dev team and iH8Sn0w were working fairly close together to release their jailbreaks today, as they were released an hour apart earlier today.

PwnageTool 4.2 also includes a fix for bugs with iBooks. iPhone Dev said today:

With [Chronic Dev Team's] permission, we’ve incorporated their 4.2.1 “feedface” untether into today’s PwnageTool 4.2. This means iPhone unlockers can safely restore to a custom 4.2.1 pre-jailbroken IPSW and retain their current baseband and unlock.

PwnageTool also includes two very recent improvements to the 4.2.1 JB: iBooks was just fixed by @comex and @pushfix last night so that it works as intended on DRMed books, and the wifi problem on AppleTV 2G was fixed by @nitotv, @DHowett, and @saurik. Both of these fixes will also be available in upcoming Cydia package updates, so if you’re already jailbroken you can wait for those updates rather than restore and jailbreak again.

So if you your jailbreak of preference is PwnageTool, you can download (Mac only!!) it at the Dev-Team’s blog, or look for a mirror site.

Sn0wBreeze, which was released today by iH8Sn0w, is for windows OS only. As with PwnageTool, you will be able to safely update to the latest (iOS 4.2) firmware, and preserve your baseband to unlock. If you are looking to jailbreak with Sn0wBreeze, there are several mirrors available, simply Google it.

So, who are you loyal to? Do you prefer The Chronic-Devs jailbreaks? Or are you more loyal to The iPhone-Dev Team? Are you glad Sn0wBreeze is updated? Let us know!
