Download Sn0wBreeze 2.8b11 To Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 [Windows]

iH8Sn0w tweeted that he has updated his popular jailbreak tool Sn0wBreeze to version 2.8 beta 11. This new version of Sn0wBreeze supports jailbreaking iOS 5.0.1 (9A405) tethered on iPhone 4 (CDMA/GSM), iPad 1G, iPod Touch 4G and iPod Touch 3G. The only iDevice that is untethered while being jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1 is the iPhone 3GS (old-bootrom). As we mentioned in previous releases of Sn0wBreeze, there are also numerous bug fixes that have been put into place to avoid errors such as the iBooks issue that effected jailbroken iOS 5 users.

Here is the official changelog for Sn0wBreeze 2.8b11:

sn0wbreeze v2.8 [BETA 11]:
* Supports iOS 5.0 (9A334)/5.0.1 (9A405)

* 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.
* Tethered devices are booted via iBooty which is
extracted to the Desktop after running sn0wbreeze.

    thanks a lot for this post.
    I have iPhone 3GS which is jailbroken and
    unlocked (i bought it that way). Current model number is 4.3.1 and
    baseband is 6.15.00. I also checked it’s bootrom and it is new bootrom. I
    have some questions around this –
    Can i upgrade to iOS 5.0.1 using this rednsn0w version?
    If yes then will I be able to unlock my phone further?
    If yes then if untethered jailbreak is out some time later, Will I be able to use it?


  • Sagnik88

    Do i need the original sim card while jailbreaking?? If yes, is there a way around it?

  • Davey

  • Andresloto

  • Monty85

    I’ve a 3GS ios5.0.1 Baseband 05.16.05 ;-(( I used sn0breeze 2.8b11. During the rebuild with the apple logo on the screen the load bar has frozen almost at the far right and side, any tips plse.


  • U muthafag

    It is a tethered jailbreak. You have to hook the cord to your computer and open the program right up every time you on the phone to make that shit work. No thanks, dim wit.

  • bloodytampon

    how’d you get it to unlock?? :(

  • His Green Angel

    I have the 3G Ipod touch. I went through snowbreeze, did everything that I was supposed to, but now I’m trying to restore with the IPSW that it made, and I get error 3194. I’ve tried updating Itunes, using different USB ports, running through snowbreeze again, with no luck. Any help?

  • XMarc93x

    I have the same..

  • kha

    I have an iphone 4 which is locked from the UK. I do not have the original sim to activate it. My friend reset the whole phone so i initially tried to update it thinking i can put an ATT sim in and it’ll activate. failed. So as of right now(not being able to pass activation screen), i believe i have ios 5.01. I tried Redsnow, and limera1n to jailbreak and pass the activation. failed to activate. Right now I am using Sn0wbreeze 2.8b11. The only ios i can create using it is a ios 5.0. I did that and opened itunes, shift click restore and chose my new snowbreeze ios 5.0 and did this over and over again and every time, error code 3194 comes up. i editted my “hosts” file according over and over and i still get this same code. itunes 10.5.1 then i upgrade to 10.5.2 after so many failed attempts. i do not know what to do anymore. please help. thank you for reading. 

  • kha

    Now i am on a different computer and downloaded 5.0 and 5.0.1 ios. this time i am able to drag and drop 5.0.1 into snowbreeze to create an ipsw. right now i’ve checked hacktivate and waiting for a ipsw to finish. i will update as soon as i can. hopefully this will go smooth. 

  • kha

    i have changed the host and included a ” # ” infront of it the numbers before saving it. restarted computer and successfully installed the custom 5.0.1 ipsw. BUT i am stuck at the Apple logo with a bar that would not move across. i’ve waited 30 minutes already. what’s next?

  • kha

    OKAY! this is the weirdest thing! i’ve successfully use sn0wbreeze to jailbreak and pass activation! for everyone who’s having the same problem, follow along and do everything that was a success for me. Anyways after it was stuck on the apple tm with the status bar, i went and boot it up with iBooty v2.3 TWICE and it worked! i am not sure how because ibooty did not come onto my desktop after i create ipsw from 5.0.1. WOOOT! hope this helps everyone. 2 days…. on this. headacheeeee but i’m happy! 

  • kha

    have you guys tried booting tethered with iBooty 2.3?

  • Alvin Tran

    Does 5.0.1 really improve battery life?

  • Leon Colin Farrel Cervantes

    watch your language…. no reason for name calling here,

    I did all that and it still don’t work… I wouldn’t be asking for help if it worked…

  • Scouseruk1210

    did you know each time you open sn0wbreeze to boot tethered,before you do that you have to select the ipsw that your running then you boot tethered and that should work, i thnk select ipsw is under extras, or have you sorted it now?

  • Ahmad Raad

    Hi guys I just done it on my iPod 4G 5.0.1 , Worked ok but I got Cydia on my iPod won’t so I run ( iBooty ) and after it finshed Cydia WORKED GOOD .Am really happy to get my iPod jailbroken .

    Thanks ALL

  • Lopez_3516

    My iPhone crashed and it wont turn on or restore on iTunes….

  • HaiderJaffery

    i had the same problem. Download iBooty v2.3. Close iTunes. Run iBooty and it will instruct you to put your device into DFU mode. Once you’re done following the instructions, enjoy! :p

  • ENDP

    where did you get the ipsw? cause mine doesn’t work -.-

  • Ryanschmidt2016

    you have to download redsnow and go to extras and just boot tethered

  • thomasx18

  • msrychel
