You Can Now Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 With Sn0wbreeze 2.8b11 [Windows]


Jailbreaker @iH8Sn0w has just updated his windows exclusive sn0wbreeze custom firmware creation tool to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1. The latest version is sn0wbreeze 2.8b11 which fully supports the latest build of iOS 5.0.1 (9A405).

    I’m hoping Geohot makes another appearance this year and releases an untethered JB’d.  Looks like the DevTeam is stumped.
