At just a day and a half away from launch of iOS 5 beta 6 here we have the first jailbreak solution 100% compatible with the new version of the operating system. iH8sn0w updated about one hour the program sn0wbreeze 2.8 to help us make a jailborken custom ipsw for iOS 5 beta 6 but help us to keep the baseband intact.

In this week iH8sn0w launched a new version of sn0wbreeze to work with iOS 5 beta 5 but it came very quickly beta 6 and it was very prompt so now we can jailbreak without any problems on iOS 5 beta 6.

Here are the functions that are implemented in sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 5 that are still available online in beta 6:

  • Now supports IOS 5 beta 6.
  • Added Hacktivation Ability.
  • Added option to remove UDID developer check / Beta Timer.
  • Finally decided to fix Baseband Preservation standalone mode.
  • Tethered is booted via iBooty devices.
  • Re-added afc2.

And in the end devices compatible with sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 6 are:

  • iPhone 3GS – BOOTROM old – untethered jailbreak;
  • iPhone 3GS – BOOTROM again;
  • iPhone 4;
  • Pad 1;
  • IPod Touch 3G
  • iPod Touch 4.

Unfortunately sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 6 is still incompatible with the iPad 2, so do not try to use this program with such a device.
