We had earlier reported about the release of the Untethered Exploit for iOS 5.0.1 devices based on A4 chipsets using the exploit Corona. Later on, PwangeTool was also released to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 devices untethered with preserving baseband. While the PwangeTool wasnt available for only Mac , the Windows counterpart Sn0wbreeze was released just moments ago.
Sn0wbreeze, the windows only jailbreak utility which also allows users to preserve their baseband. While preserving baseband was available only on the Mac, now Windows users can also preserve their baseband and unlock their device using Ultrasn0w.
The steps to use this utility is same as that of the previous version. You just have to download the latest Sn0wbreeze 2.9 from the link given at the end and follow the same instructions.
