Yesterday iTunes update was found to have issues with those of iPod Touches and iPhones that were tethered jailbroken with blackRa1n. If you have one of these, you will be unable to rejailbreak your device after rebooting it with blackra1n. The problem is being experienced only by Windows users. iH8Sn0w has an explanation:
"Blackra1n hooks to the dll that has different offsets of what it is actually looking for".
iH8sn0w has just released a new version of Sn0wbreeze, the Windows tool that allows you to jailbreak Firmware 3.1.3. This is a small update that fixes a problem that occurs only on 64bit operating system.
You can download the new sn0wbreeze 1.5.2
We still recommend to use DevTeam utilities - RedSn0w (Windows and MAC OS) and PwnageTool (MAC OS only).
As expected iH8sn0w released f0recast, the application that allows us to know a lot of useful information about all we can do with our iPhone.
Just connect the iPhone with the cable to see what is version of the baseband or iBoot. The utility will also give valuable information if we can perform a jailbreak (tethered or untethered). It will also tell if the Phone is unlockable and will give a suggestion what unlock software can be used.
You can download it directly from
MuscleNerd just posted interesting comment on Twitter, saying that the application is inaccurate regarding to the iPhone 3GS. There might be a new update soon. For all other devices the application works just fine.
iH8sn0w, through a new tweet, informs that his new utility f0recast will be released tonight.
There are many different iPhone and iPod Touch models and firmware versions for them. Each device has it's own bootrom, bootloader, iBoot and baseband versions that determine if user can perform jailbreak and unlock. So it is quite complicated for users to answer a simple question: "Is my device jailbreakable?". f0recast will solve this problem.
f0recast is a small Windows application that will able to give a straight answer if the iPhone or iPod touch is able to be jailbroken. Just connect your iPhone, launch the app and push a button.
f0recast is only an informational tool which determines if your device can or cannot be jailbreaked. It will NOT jailbreak your device.
It looks like Apple has started banning iPhone hackers from the iTunes App Store.
A few day ago Sherif Hashim, the iPhone developer and hacker, tweeted that he had found an exploit in the latest iPhone OS 3.1.3, which could enable the unlock on 05.12.01 baseband for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G. Yesterday he has been banned by Apple for the so called "security reasons". It seems that Apple is quite angry! Here is what Sherif gets when he tries to access App Store from his iPhone:
Sherif Hashim’s Tweets:
"Your Apple ID was banned for security reasons", that's what i get when i try to go to the app store, they must be really angry ))))
and guess what my apple ID was, "email@example.com", what a fool was me not to notice )), can't help laughing, they are babies ))
Another iPhone hacker named iH8sn0w, the developer of Sn0wbreeze (PwnageTool alternative for Windows), tweeted saying he was also banned by Apple right after he released an exploit known as XEMN:
@sherif_hashim lol, they did that to my ih8sn0wyday[@t]googmail.com too. (right after I posted XEMN)…
For now Apple isn’t banning Jailbreakers - they’re banning people who actively work to find exploits in the iPhone software to create Jailbreaks for the rest of us.
iH8sn0w released a new version of Sn0wbreeze, the Windows tool that allows to jailbreak the newest firmware 3.1.3. This is a small update that addresses several problems with YouTube.
You can download the new version of sn0wbreeze
We still recommend to use DevTeam utilities - redsn0w (Windows and MAC OS) and pwnagetool (MAC OS only).
H8sn0w has just released the new version of Sn0wbreeze 1.4. Sn0wbreeze is a jailbreak utility with functionality similar to PwnageTool. The new version supports firmware 3.1.3 jailbreak for the following devices:
- iPhone 2G
- iPhone 3G
- iPhone 3GS - old bootrom
- iPod Touch 1G
- iPod Touch 2G - non MC
Sn0wbreeze is a Windows application, so Mac users have to wait for the upcoming release of PwnageTool by the DevTeam. Alternatively, both Mac and Windows users can use Redsn0w to run jailbreak (no custom firmware though).

MuscleNerd continues to argue that we should not use sn0wbreeze. Especially users who have unlocked their iPhone with blacksn0w utility:
iH8Sn0w has released a beta of Sn0wbreeze a software utility which jailbreaks the iPod Touch 1G, 2G and iPhone 2G, 3G, and 3GS (old bootrom & non MC). The software runs on Windows XP, Vista, 7 (32 or 64 bit). Sn0wbreeze is similar to PwnageTool for Mac. It will allow you to create custom ipsws which can be built to include Cydia applications and personalized boot logos.
At this time BlackRa1n is still recommended for Windows users with firmware 3.1.2 and RedSn0w for earlier firmwares.
iH8Sn0w has posted another teaser trailer for Sn0wBreeze, a windows utility to build custom iPhone ipsw files.
Another Teaser... I have no idea why Teaser 2 was removed. Anyway. Like always, its not done yet! GUI is subject to change. Like the window sizes
Take a look below...
Here's a new video preview of Sn0wbreeze, the iH8sn0w's Windows tool that will be able to create a custom firmware, just as PwnageTool Mac.
In the video we see a preview of the graphic interface and the first functions. At startup we choose the expert or the simple mode and the rest should be exactly as we know it already.
iH8sn0w has just released a new teaser video showing Sn0wbreeze, application for Windows that would basically be a clone of PwnageTool, equipped with the ability to create custom firmware and unlock the various devices.
Many users believe that Sn0wbreeze is just "fake,".. Hopefully iH8sn0w did found an exploit and will finish Sn0wbreeze soon.
Let's watch the video:
With sn0wbreeze it will be possible to create custom firmware under Windows and use it for firmware 3.1 jailbreak. This is basically a port of PwnageTool for Windows. The developer of this tool, iH8sn0w, published a video:
iH8sn0w is working on a new project called sn0wbreeze. This will be a port of PwnageTool for Windows. Here are couple quotes from twitter:
iH8sn0w The new project that we are working on is sn0wbreeze. It is basically PwnageTool for Windows. Our ETA is October 12.
iH8sn0w Sn0wBreeze will Support iPod Touch 2G running 3.1 OTB!!! Not the 3G[S]!
With sn0wbreeze it will be possible to create custom firmware under Windows and use it for firmware 3.1 jailbreak.
UPDATE: Download it here.
iH8sn0w is working on a new tool in its program iREB, that will save the ECID certificate for firmware 3.1 on your computer.
Using this ECID saved on your computer and a tool from Saurik, you will be able to perform a downgrade from one firmware to another (3.2 to 3.1)
Here is a video showing some details:
Playing with the latest beta software for iPhone, one of iH8sn0w employees (firmware 3.1 beta 3 jailbreak utility), found that the expiry date for latest firmware is September 18.
Firmware 3.1 will be probably released 1 or 2 days before the expiration of the beta. This means that Apple might perform a release during the Apple event in September. However this event is dedicated to the music, so we cannot be sure.
The only certain knowledge is that by the middle of next month we will see either 3.1 beta 4 or 3.1 release.
