For those of you that would rather not use redsn0w to jailbreak your device for whatever reason, iH8sn0w has released his jailbreak tool for 5.1, known as sn0wbreeze. This tool works by building a custom firmware, just like the “Custom IPSW” option in redsn0w. Note also that this is only available for Windows users, and that Mac users should just use redsn0w. Read on for directions.

You will need:


Sn0wbreeze 2.9.2 (Download)

Your device’s 5.1 firmware (Download)


The directions are the same as always.

Building the IPSW

1. Open Sn0wbreeze and click the blue arrow to go to the next screen.

2. Locate and select your 5.1 IPSW and click the next arrow.

3. Select the mode you want to run in. If you rely on a carrier unlock, you should select “Expert Mode”.

4. Choose the options you want. If you are unsure what they mean, don’t change anything. Click next.

5. Wait for Sn0wbreeze to create your custom IPSW.

6. Once it finishes, plug in your device and follow the on-screen directions to put your device in DFU mode.

Restoring in iTunes

7. Open iTunes, and Shift+click the “Restore” button when your device pops up.

8. Wait for iTunes to restore your device.

Booting Tethered

9. Use iH8sn0w’s iREB to boot into a tethered state. You will need to do this any time your device restarts.

    Is this tethered or untethered???

    • prhstitan

       tethered, all 5.1 jailbreaks at the moment are tethered, and if you have a 5A device you cant even get a tethered jailbreak with 5.1

        @prhstitan O ok thx man and na im running on a iphone 3gs tethered ios 5.1 im waiting for a untethered

          Hey fuck face, how about that doesn’t matter to you?

        • rigs101

          @Scooterguy510 I thought the 5.1 jailbreak was untethered for the 3GS if you use redsnow

        • rigs101

          @Scooterguy510 If you’re lucky enough to have an old-bootrom 3GS, this jailbreak is actually untethered (redsn0w will figure that part out automatically).
          See I got that from gdeluxe”dot”com

    whats the difference between “tethered” and “untethered jailbreak” ?

  • pandora0426

    I have an iPhone 3GS with a 6.15.00 firmware and its currently on iOs 5.0… can I still jailbreak tethered and unlock my phone to an AT&T carrier? Thanks

    pandora0456: the difference between an untethered and tethered jailbreak is that tethered if you turn off your system you have to re-jailbreak it but untethered you can turn your device on and off
