Sn0wbreeze 2.9.4 adds support for the creation of custom(pre-jailbroken) firmware that you can restore which will preserve the baseband of your iPhone. This tool is essential for software/hardware unlockers who need to maintain a specific baseband in order to be able to unlock their device. While creating your custom 5.1.1 firmware you have a few different options. One option is to create a pre-jailbroken firmware, this means that once you restore the custom firmware you will already be jailbroken and there will be no need to run Absinthe or …

Just a few minutes ago, @ih8sn0w the creator of Sn0wbreeze announced on Twitter that he has found a loophole in Apple’s APTicket system which allowed him to downgrade his iPad2 from 5.1 to 5.0.1.

Today is the two-year anniversary of Sn0wbreeze and @ih8sn0w has gone all out with his latest release, Sn0wbreeze 2.9.1.

Of course there are Cydia applications that can take care of that, but if you choose Sn0wbreeze 2.9 allows for you …
iReb is a tool bundled with Sn0wbreeze(or as a standalone application). @ih8sn0w has released a new version of his Pwned-DFU tool, iReb, after 10 months without an update. iReb is mainly used for restoring custom firmware, usually made with Sn0wbreeze. It allows you to put your device into a Pwned-DFU state in order for iTunes to accept the firmware instead of displaying 16xx errors. iReb also serves other purposes such as fixing recovery mode loops and grabbing SHSH blobs. The newest version is much smaller in size(390kb) and also fixes a few issues and increases speed on some …

Now that iOS5 has been released, the iPhone-Dev team is scrambling to update their software to support the new firmware. Since it has been revealed that the public release of iOS5 is identical to the GM release from a few days ago, the current version of Redsn0w can already be used to perform a tethered jailbreak by pointing the software at a GM release of iOS5. An update, Redsn0w 0.9.9b5 will be released later today so that you won’t have to specify a firmware.
