Earlier, the iPhone Dev Team released the Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 tool for both Windows and Mac OS X to jailbreak iOS 5 beta. Now, iH8sn0w, the developer behind the Sn0wbreeze tool has made the Sn0wbreeze 2.8b1 available for the same purpose. This is also a tethered jailbreak via iBooty.

Sn0wbreeze 2.8b1

Sn0wbreeze 2.8b1 is similar to Redsn0w 0.9.8b1 and hence it is advised not to use any pirated version of the iOS 5 beta firmware. Use only the genuine stock firmware which the developers can access, which means you have to be developer to get it. Also, those who intend to unlock their iPhone must stay away from the jailbreak.

This is what iH8sn0w told in his release note :

* Supports the following Devices:

- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4 [GSM]
- iPhone 4 [CDMA]
- iPod Touch 3G
- iPod Touch 4
- iPad 1G
--------------------------------------
* Props to @MuscleNerd for the kernel patches. :)
--------------------------------------
* THIS IS INTENDED FOR DEVELOPERS ONLY!!!
* This sn0wbreeze does NOT add afc2 or Hacktivate to prevent users from removing the UDID check after jailbreak.
* UNLOCKERS SHOULD STAY AWAY!!!
* This is a /TETHERED/ jailbreak via iBooty.
