Dev-Team: Snow Leopard Does NOT Break iPhone Unlock or Jailbreak

Apple has launched the new Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6 on Friday.

If you’re wondering whether the new Mac operating system breaks the Jailbreaking and Unlocking of iPhone then the good news for you is that, it would NOT.

Dev-Team has confirmed that Mac OS X Snow Leopard is safe for all iPhone jailbreak and unlocking tools.

Dev-Team had this to say:

Snow Leopard, the OS released for Mac on Friday, poses no new wrinkles for the redsn0w jailbreak or ultrsn0w unlock.

To summarize the status of our tools (all of which are available through the links at the left):

  • You can use redsn0w to jailbreak any iPhone or iPod Touch using OS X, Windows, or Linux.  For both 3.0 and 3.0.1 firmwares, you should point redsn0w at the 3.0 IPSW.  If you see it hang at “waiting for reboot”, just unplug and replug that USB cable.
  • You can use ultrasn0w to unlock the iPhone 3G/3GS, or BootNeuter to unlock the iPhone 2G.  Both ultrasn0w and BootNeuter are available via Cydia.
  • You can use PwnageTool for Mac to create custom IPSWs with pre-installed packages.

We’re glad to see Apple joining in on the “snow” theme.   If only Apple had called their new OS “Sn0w Leopard”!

iTunes rejected my 2G IP in Snow Leopard, is anyone have the same problem?
