iH8sn0w has released Sn0wbreeze 2.9.4 that adds support for iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak. Remember if you have already jailbroken your device using Absinthe 2.0 then this is not for you.
A lot of new jailbreak users get confused when they see a tool after another tool getting released all doing pretty much the same thing. Thanks for iPhone Dev Team who have added all the PwnageTool support in the Redsn0w. We would appreciate when others would try to do the same.
What is New?
Added the 5.1.1/9B206 untether that was released with today’s absinthe update.
Added 5.0/9B206f (Apple TV 2) support.
Minor UI changes (thanks @icj_!).
iPhone 4 (GSM) & Apple’s 5.1.1/9B208 Update:
This evening, Apple appears to have (surprisingly) released 5.1.1/9B208 for the iPhone 4 (GSM) exclusively. Although there isn’t much of a difference it was enough to make the 9B206 untether payload for the iPhone 4 (GSM) invalidate on 9B208. Until pod2g/planetbeing build an untether payload for this build, 9B208 support is not included. A small update will be pushed whenever this occurs. This doesn’t mean the untether was patched though.
As stated many times in the past, sn0wbreeze cannot be updated to work on A5(X) devices until a low level exploit in DFU or iBoot is found and made public. Therefore, A5(X) users will have to rely on using the lovely absinthe.
A5(X) Baseband Preservation/Hacktivation?
For those running A5(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 active with the carrier to activate the phone.
