iOS 6.1 Untethered Jailbreak Using Sn0wbreeze 2.9.9

Sn0breeze iOS 6.1 Untethered Jailbreak is now possible with the latest version of sn0wbreeze 2.9.9, as we have promised last week here is the step by step tutorial on how to use snowbreeze 2.9.9 to untethered jailbreak your iOS 6.1 device. For those who don’t know Sn0wbreeze is a IPSW firmware file based jailbreak tool, which basically means that sn0wbreeze doesn’t jailbreak the iOS on your device but generates a modified – custom IPSW firmware file for your device which is already jailbroken. All you have to do is restore your device with this custom IPSW file and you have a pre – jailbroken device ready to use.

It does sounds like an advantage since you have to jailbreak the IPSW file once after you can use the specific file as much as you like, only stipulation is that your device falls under the supported devices list. Sn0wbreeze jailbreaks using a low level hardware exploit which can only be performed on A4 devices, means if you have an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 or a new flavor iPad it will not work. But if you do have an A4 based device, this is defiantly the  jailbreak tool to choose over Evasi0n.

Sn0wbreeze 2.9.9 Supported devices – It will support all A4 devices like

  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 3G
  • iPhone 2G
  • iPod Touch 4
  • iPod Touch 3
  • iPod Touch 2
  • iPad 1
  • Apple TV 2

If your Device has an A5 or A5X Processor like iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad 4 and iPad mini then you can untethered jailbreak it using Evasion Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6.0.x and 6.1
