iH8sn0w, the hacker behind Sn0wbreeze, has released Sn0wbreeze 2.9, a major update which incorporates Pod2g’s untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 and supports all firmwares from 3.1.3 to 5.0.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
Sn0wbreeze (Windows only) works just like PwnageTool (Mac only), it lets you create custom firmware to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It also preserves iPhone baseband which is necessary to unlock with UltraSn0w or Gevey SIM.
There are numerous versions available for Sn0wbreeze which are used to jailbreak different firmware releases, but Sn0wbreeze 2.9 supports almost all firmware to date inclusing 3.x.x, 4.x.x, and 5, 5.0.1. You may call it a All-in-One package.

- Brought back old firmware support in one release!
- GUI Improvements
- You can now build IPSWs with TinyUmbrella/iFaith blobs!
- Removes OTA Updates/badge on iOS 5.x.x+ devices.

- Custom Packages in Expert actually works now. 😛
- All supported firmwares in this release are untethered.

Sn0wbreeze 2.9 Supports:
- iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS
