Now that sn0wbreeze is open-source, would anyone be interested in themes for it? I have been going through and improving the underlying code for a few days now, soon to be on my github or something. It is really simple to change the UI for it, so anyone interested? --JakeAnthraX 01:07, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

I would like the ability NOT to install Cydia, since we can now only install SSH+afc2. Just like in "Micro$oft v. the European Union", 90% of the users will be happy with the defaults, but th3 g33kz aren't. :)
Also, an easier way to enter pwned DFU (like, from the main page).
The biggest problem, to be fair, is that downloading packages from saurik's source is broken. The package "apt" ends up containing a colon in the filename (impossible in a Windows environment) due to its version number. Thanks in advance for considering these improvements! --Ryccardo 14:39, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
The funny part is that I already did put another menu on the top to DFU Pwner. I am going to keep Cydia on there for most users. I am hopefully adding custom fonts on it too. Since that is the first thing I do when I jailbreak. --JakeAnthraX 20:12, 19 November 2010 (UTC)


There is now 2.2r3 and 2.2.1 versions of sn0wbreeze, drag'n'drop in 2.2.1 is cool! --Srb21103 02:28, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Added. --Dialexio 03:19, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

sn0wbreeze for 5.0b

If snowbreeze works by decrypting and can jailbreak all supported devices couldn't we rip the vfdecrypt keys out of it's source code? I looked at the 4.3.3 code and yes they were there. --5urd 12:50, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Are any keys missing? It would probably be easier to ask IH8sn0w or look into the source code on github instead of reverse engineering sn0wbreeze. -- http 21:39, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Yes, iPhone 4 GSM, iPad 2 and iPod touch 3G. And since no computer based exploit exists, how did we get the keys for 4.3.1, .2, and .3 on the iPad 2 if the ramdisks are encrypted? --5urd 22:14, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
For some reason, Apple never encrypted the ramdisks for 4.3.1-4.3.3. All you had to do was pass the ramdisks through xpwntool without supplying an IV or key. --Dialexio 00:22, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
The source code has about half of the 2.6.1 code and the modIPSW.vb file is for 2.5.1 (4.3.2) for some reason. And I wasnt talking about reverse engineering it though --5urd 22:01, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Well then can we template it with that note? I think I will do that when in a bit. --5urd 01:33, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
But the sc on Git-Hub doesnt show all of 2.6.1's code, let alone 2.8 --5urd 01:33, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
sn0wbreeze's 2.6.1 source is basically the same throughout 2.7.3 (just keys/patches/untether binaries were changed). As for the beta releases of sn0wbreeze, I will not be publishing them to ensure that people will not re-release them with UDID protection removed or afc2 added. --iH8sn0w 02:07, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
That makes sense. But when you come out with a release, could you at least post the keys you used somewhere online? None of the iPod touch 3g keys have been filled for the 5.0 beta. --5urd 03:20, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
It shouldn't have to be my responsibility to post keys. :/ --iH8sn0w 03:26, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
I am not saying it is. --5urd 03:28, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Someone knows how to make a tethered custom IPSW, like sn0wbreeze ones? Is it just add Cydia, patch IBSS and create IPSW (and boot with limera1n)? --Zmaster 20:00, 12 July BRA)

You can create an ipsw with sn0wbreeze and compare the differences. Not very complicated. -- http 17:08, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Custom IPSW

This is now dead so I took it out of the page. --iAdam1n (talk) 01:16, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Please elaborate on this. Just how is it dead as a custom IPSW creation tool? Unless I missed something, it does create custom IPSWs for iOS 6.0.1 (albeit tethered and for older devices). --Dialexio (talk) 06:19, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
It creates them but apple patched the restore in the manifest.plist. Please see --iAdam1n (talk) 11:09, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Can you provide proof? For example, the sourcecode of said 'patched' manifest plist. --Srb21103 (talk) 11:42, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
I do not have this but if you read my blog post, I have proof from iH8sn0w --iAdam1n (talk) 11:55, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
I don't want to discuss about current problems about restoring cfw. This is not the point. It can be added as a comment to the page without a problem (if true). But you changed the intruductory phrase that it's a cfw generation tool to simply jailbreak. Sn0wbreeze is not that. It still creates custom firmware files. Even if it would be broken. And for the multiple changes, please see my comment on your talk page. --http (talk) 12:50, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Maybe but I disagree. It is useless to add it as it wont even work. I will edit and add a note then but I think its better without. --iAdam1n (talk) 13:06, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Your new version looks good to me.--http (talk) 13:09, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Ok thank you. I will leave it at this. --iAdam1n (talk) 13:10, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Even though the argument is done, to be specific, sn0wbreeze is a ipsw patching tool, not technically a jailbreak. The jailbreak is in the ipsw is it not? --Haifisch (talk) 19:30, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Just updated it as have had news from iH8sn0w this only applies to iPod touch 2G running 4.x.x --iAdam1n (talk) 17:17, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
