iH8Sn0w Releases Sn0wBreeze 2.9.8 With iOS 6.1 Support for iPhone 3GS, A4 Devices

iH8Sn0w has released Sn0wBreeze v2.9.8 with iOS 6.1 support for iPhone 3GS, and A4 devices including the Apple TV 2.

What is New?
● Added 5.2/6.0.x/6.1 untethers provided by evad3rs
● Added iOS 6.1 support for iPhone 3GS, and A4 devices.
● Fixed Hacktivation issues on 6.0.x.
● Fixed some iFaith mode bugs.

(I should note AppleTV 2 stuff such as XBMC is currently broken. So you may want to hold back on updating until your favorite tweaks are updated and available.)

Use iFaith mode after selecting/downloading the appropriate IPSW for your device. You will then be prompted to browse for SHSH blobs for the IPSW you have selected.
Remember to enter a PWNED DFU state with sn0wbreeze's iREB button in the top bar of sn0wbreeze prior to (SHIFT + Restoring) the custom signed IPSW!

A5(X)/A6(X) Support?:
As stated many times in the past, sn0wbreeze cannot be updated to work on A5(X)/A6(X) devices until a low level exploit in DFU or iBoot is found and made public.

A5(X)/A6(X) Baseband Preservation/Hacktivation?
For those running A5(X)/A6(X) devices and need to preserve your baseband, there is nothing you can do at the moment. For those wanting to hacktivate, the only advice I can give is to buy the carrier's SIM (the one its locked to obviously) on ebay. The SIM does not have to be activated with the carrier to activate the phone.

Known Bugs/Issues:
● Windows 8 users currently need to use this workaround to run sn0wbreeze.
● First boot on an AppleTV 2 for 5.1/5.2 firmwares has funky glitches. Should be fixed by updates pushed via repos.
● iPad baseband will fail to flash on iOS 4.0 --> iOS 4.2.1 restores.
● iPod Touch 2G 4.x.x restores fail (fix coming soon).

Sn0wBreeze can be downloaded from here.

Hi all, new problem, wracking my brain and my dfu finger is raw! :) O.k. managed to downgrade 3gs, 6.15 broadband to 5.16 which is no good right? This was done by Redsn0w. What to do? Thanks I appreciate any ideas!

OLD 3GS 6.1 with 6.15 BB - Solution I got mine working. You only need redsn0w and their instructions. 1) restore to factory settings using itunes. 2) reflash downgrade BB using redsn0w. 3) jb using redsn0w. You can't BB & JB at same time!! 4) install ultrasn0w. 5) good to go! might need to reboot if it doesn't work at first.

This is confusing me, what exactly does it mean? Step 7 – Restore Custom 6.1 Now close Sn0wbreeze 2.9.8 and open iTunes, Hold down the Shift/Option key and hit the Restore button; Browse and select the custom firmware 6.1 from the desktop; iTunes will start restoring custom iOS 6.1 on your iPhone/iPod Touch; That’s it! Your’ve successfully jailbroken iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 4G on iOS 6 The above shift/Option key - how and when? In Itunes what is it you hold down? Sorry if this is a stupid question! :)

It's not that confusing. After doing everything in sn0wbreeze, your phone will be in pwnd dfu mode. When you start itunes, it will tell you that iphone needs to be restored. There is the restore button. Hold shift and push it! Select ipsw which sn0wbreeze made and etc
