Yesterday, iH8sn0w released the updated version of his jailbreak tool Sn0wbreeze, to support iOS 6.1.2. It only works for Windows users and is only compatible with pre-A5 devices, including the iPhone 4, 3G and iPod Touch 4th Generation. V 2.9.10 also included a sandbox fix for iOS 5.2 on Apple TV 2.

UPDATE – New Jailbreak Tools :
Following the release of iOS 6.1.3, which patched the Evasi0n jailbreak, Snowbreeze was updated to v2.9.14 but only supported the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4. Apple subsequently updated their firmware to iOS 6.1.4 leaving users who updated with a jailbreak utility to use. However, shortly afterwards, a new utility was released, called P0sixspwn, a utility that was kept updated right through to and including iOS 6.1.6. However, the final update was only an untether utility and users needed to install Redsn0w tethered jailbreak, before using P0sixspwn to untether it.
Since then, much has changed in the world of Apple and jailbreaking. iOS 7 was the last firmware to be supported on the iPhone 4 and that wasn’t fully supported due to hardware restrictions. Evad3rs saw to our jailbreak needs with iOS 7 along with a new team called Pangu for the final one before iOS 8 was released last September. While iOS 7 saw the iPhone 3GS dropped from the list, iOS 8 knocked off support for the iPhone 4, leaving the iPhone 4S as the oldest iPhone to be supported.

Because of this, Sn0wbreeze was not updated beyond support for iOS 6.1.6 as all the currently supported iPhone and iPad models were covered by more recent jailbreaks. iOS 8 has been well and truly jailbroken by three different teams – Pangu, Taig and PP – all of whom originate from China. Evad3rs dropped off the scene after iOS 7.1.2 and have not been heard from since. iOS 8.1.3 has patched all current jailbreaks so stay tuned and use one of the following subscription options to be kept up to date on the latest jailbreak news.
