After the DevTeam up to date RedSn0w, just a few hours in the past iH8sn0w did the identical with its standard utility Sn0wbreeze to model 2.9.2 to permit tethered jailbreak with iOS 5.1. In case you’re unfamiliar with the tethered jailbreak, you must jailbreak each time you restart your iDevice. For this you have to connect your iPhone to your computer via USB.
What’s new in iH8sn0w’s latest jailbreak tool update:
- Added Tethered Jailbreak support for 3GS/iPod Touch 3/A4 Users on iOS 5.1 (9B176)
- iPhone 3GS old-bootrom users are untethered on 5.1/9B176 (as usual).
- Bug Fixes (Specifically with the iPad baseband and iPhone 2G).
- Re-added the iPhone Dev-Team’s iPhone 2G permanent unlock ‘BootNeuter’.
It is not recommended for such time but hope to Jailbreak untethered version shortly. Snow0breeze creates a custom firmware with the possibility of preserving the baseband if you use ultrasn0w unlock which will be update to support iOS 5.1.
The devices supported in this release are the pre-A5:
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 3G
- iPod Touch 4G
- iPod Touch 3G
- iPad 1
A low level (DFU/iBoot/LLB) exploit is required to start the restoration of custom IPSWs. The past two jailbreaks (JailbreakMe & absinthe) for the A5 worked within iOS itself. These exploits are not capable of bringing the iDevice into a state where it will accept custom IPSWs. Therefore, an A5 device cannot currently downgrade to an iOS revision that Apple is no longer signing (even with SHSH blobs) and it cannot preserve the baseband when updating to a newer iOS revision.
