iH8sn0w has also released a new version of Sn0wbreeze (v2.9.5), which adds support for the revised iOS 5.1.1 that was released by Apple for GSM iPhone 4 users.

iH8sn0w has released Sn0wbreeze v2.9.4, which includes suport for iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple TV.

In addition to support for the revised iOS 5.1.1, iH8sn0w has also included a fix for location services for iPhone 3GS users (iPad baseband users).

Sn0wbreeze allows users to create custom iOS 5.1.1 firmware file that is pre-jailbroken, which can then be used to upgrade their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to iOS 5.1.1. In case of iPhone, Sn0wbreeze also preserves the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w (though Ultrasn0w is not yet compatible with iOS 5.1.1).

Here’s what’s new in Sn0wbreeze v2.9.5:

  • Added 5.1.1/9B208 untether payload for the iPhone 4 GSM
  • Added iPhone 3GS (iPad Baseband users) location services fix
Sn0wbreeze 2.9.5 supports the following iOS devices running on iOS 5.1.1:
  • iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4
  • iPad 1
  • iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G
  • Apple TV 2
iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users who depend on unlocking should use Sn0wbreeze or Redsn0w (whenever Dev team releases it with iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak support) as it preserves the baseband. If you’re only after jailbreaking then you could use the Absinthe jailbreak tool as it is easier to use. Users having trouble jailbreaking their iOS device with Absinthe can also try Sn0wbreeze.
You can download the latest version Sn0wbreeze, which is available only for Windows users using this link.
