Today iH8Snow has tweeted that he has updated Sn0wBreeze, once again, to version 2.9.3. In Sn0wBreeze v2.9.3 you can expect support for Jailbreaking the Apple TV 2G running the iOS 4.4.3/4.4.4 firmware and of course a variety of bug fixes. For those of you who have never heard of Sn0wBreeze before it is a Windows only Jailbreaking tool that creates custom pre-Jailbroken firmware files that must be restored to your iOS device in order to be Jailbroken. This method of Jailbreaking is useful for unlockers and those who want to specify advanced parameters for their Jailbreak.
You can take a look at the official changelog for Sn0wBreeze v2.9.3 in the quoted area below.
- Added Apple TV 2 support for iOS 4.4.3/4.4.4.
- Fixed rare issues with iOS 5.0.1 where it would halt on the Apple upon boot.
Just adding this in mainly for users who dumped their SHSH blobs. On the initial boot, the Apple TV may have a black screen for 60 seconds after setting up the Apple TV. This is normal.
For those interested Sn0wBreeze v2.9.3 can be downloaded from the iJailbreak Downloads Section or from the direct link below.
