Guide to create custom 4.1 firmware with Snowbreeze (Copy from RedmondPie)

Sn0wbreeze 2.0 supports following devices:

  • iPod touch 1G (Must be jailbroken on any firmware version)
  • iPod touch 2G (Non-MC Model, Must be jailbroken on any firmware, if not, then use iREB from here)

  • iPhone 3GS old bootrom (Must be already jailbroken. If you are jailbroken using Spirit or JailbreakMe, install Spirit2Pwn from http://repo.woowiz.net.

 

NOTE: Sn0wbreeze 2.0 WILL NOT jailbreak iPhone 4, iPad and iPod touch 4G.

Instructions are as follows:

Step 1: Download and install the latest version of iTunes.

Step 2: Now start iTunes and sync your iPhone with your PC so that it backs-up all your important data including settings, apps, music, contacts and photos.

Step 3: Download Sn0wbreeze 2.0 and the original iOS 4.1 firmware file for your version of iPhone or iPod touch (download links given below). Move all these files to your desktop.

Step 4: Start Sn0wbreeze and select “Expert Mode”.

 

Step 5: Sn0wbreeze will now ask you to browse for your .ipsw file. Select the correct iOS 4.1 firmware .ipsw file by clicking the “Browse” button. Sn0wbreeze will verify the selected file and then will present you with following screens.

 

 

Step 6: Now if you are on iPhone 3GS (New Bootrom) or iPod touch 3G, make sure you hit “General”-> and check “Use iBooty Method (3.1.2 Installation Required!).

Also check “Activate The iPhone” if you are on unofficial carrier and want Sn0wbreeze to hacktivate your phone.

 

Step 7: Now simply select “Build IPSW”. Sn0wbreeze will now create the custom .ipsw file for your iPhone which will be jailbroken.

Step 8: Now you will have to restore your iPhone to this custom firmware 4.1 that you just cooked using Sn0wbreeze for your iPhone. Click on your phone from the sidebar in iTunes and then press and hold left “Shift” button on the keyboard and then click on “Restore” (Not “Update” or “Check for Update”) button in the iTunes and then release the “Shift” button.

This will make iTunes prompt you to select the location for your custom firmware 4.1. Select that custom .ipsw file and click on “Open”.

Step 9: Now sit back and enjoy as iTunes does the rest for you. This will involve a series of automated steps. Be patient at this stage and don’t do anything silly. Just wait while iTunes installs the new iOS 4.1 on your iPhone. Your iPhone screen at this point will be showing a progress bar indicating installation progress. After the installation is done, iPhone will restart automatically and you should now have a fully jailbroken iPhone running on iOS 4.1.

How to downgrade iPad to 3.2 firmware

In Apple device on 10/09/2010 at 2:15 AM

Based on what i read it seem that iPad is a an interesting piece of equipment and i myself could not resisted to buy one from Ebay 🙂 The item came just now and its seems that the previous owner had completely wiped out all of his data leaving my iPad stay in white Apple logo. Plugged it in iTune and i discovered it was installed with3.2.2 firmware . Bummer ! So i tried to restore it back to 3.2 firmware but i keep getting error message refer to Apple verify process. After digging through Google i found some helpful instructions to successfully  restore my iPad to 3.2.

Basically all i do is change the file “hosts” to trick iTunes into thinking that Apple allowed the restoration. Here are the steps:

(Copied from www.jailbreaktheipad.com and www.ipadforums.net)

  1. Download 3.2 iPad firmware at felixbruns (Best Apple firmware host ever 🙂
  2. Run Notepad as administrator
  3. Open “hosts” file in C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc
  4. Copy this line to bottom of the file: “74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com”
  5. Save it then run iTunes to restore. Now my iPad ran 3.2 firmware ready to jailbreak 🙂
  6. Download Spirit and run it as Admin. There ! You now have jailbreak iPad with Cydia.

Run Notepad as Admin

Copy paste and save 🙂
