What is Sn0wbreeze?
Sn0wbreeze is a jailbreak tool that allows you to create custom firmware (IPSW) file, similar to PwnageTool. This custom firmware can then be restored to jailbreak and unlock the iPhone, iPad, or the iPhone Touch. The code of Sn0wbreeze is written in C# and is developed by iH8Sn0w. To restore a custom firmware created with it, you will need a version of iTunes older than 11.1 because with any newer iTunes version Apple rehashes the firmware IPSW file before restoring.
