Just yesterday we had reported about the release of the Sn0wbreeze v2.8b9 to jailbreak your iOS 5.0.1 Beta 1 device. Now the developers have released Snowbreeze v2.8b10 to Jailbreak iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 Beta 1 and Beta 2.
The current version of Redsn0w is capable enough to apply Tethered Jailbreak on iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1 Beta 1 and 2 the advantage of this latest Snowbreeze is that it fixes iBooks crashing issue on devices running jailbroken iOS 5.0.x.
The latest Snowbreeze tool also removes UDID requirement for iOS 5.0.1 betas which implies that even non-developers can install iOS 5.0.1 without having to have a registered account on iOS Dev Center.
Full change-log of Sn0wbreeze 2.8b10 is as follows:
sn0wbreeze v2.8 [BETA 10]:
- Supports iOS 5.0 (9A334)/5.0.1-b2 (9A404)
- Fixed iBooks sandbox crashing issues (as of 2.8b9).
- Fixed location services issues with iPhone 3GS
users running the iPad baseband (as of 2.8b9).
- Re-added iPad baseband install option to iPhone 3GS.
- Removes UDID requirement/Beta timer in 5.0.1.
- Tethered devices are booted via iBooty which is
extracted to the Desktop after running sn0wbreeze.
iPhone 3GS iPad baseband (06.15.00) users:
- Re-flash the iPad baseband via sn0wbreeze
if you restore(d) to a stock 5.0 firmware.
Redsnow and Snowbreeze both can be used to preserve the old baseband by cooking a custom firmware file that can be restored on iPhone via iTunes.
This method will apply a tethered jailbreak as Untethered jailbreak is still unavailable for iOS 5 devices. However we suggest our readers to Install Semi-Tether a cydia tweak which allows you to reboot your device without having the need to connect to a computer havinf RedsnOw but with limited functionality.
