Earlier, we bought you a guide on How to Install iOS 5 Beta on the iPhone Without Any Apple Dev Account! Only days after, iPhone Dev-Team was not only able to jailbreak the iOS 5 on the iDevices and demonstrate it on the iPod Touch 4th Gen, but they also released an updated version of the Redsn0w 0.9.8, that allows everyone to jailbreak their iDevice on iOS 5! And we brought you a step-by-step guide to achieve the jailbreak of iOS 5 on your iDevice. We also have a guide for jailbreaking for iOS 5 on windows using Redsn0w here that we posted earlier.
Today, ih8sn0w has released the Sn0wbreeze 2.8b2 for Windows users to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS with iOS 5 installed on it! The main new and exciting feature of this release is that it allows to jailbreak iOS on iPhone 3GS untethered (for old bootrom)! We have already brought you a guide: Jailbreak iOS 5 & Preserve Baseband For iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad 1 Using Sn0wbreeze 2.8. But at that time Sn0wbreeze 2.8b1 only allowed tethered jailbreak for the iPhone3GS with the iOS 5 installed.
You can download the Sn0wbreeze 2.8b2 from here. As for the installation instructions, they are exactly the same for the Sn0wbreeze 2.8b2 as they were for the b1, and you can found those instructions in our guide: Jailbreak iOS 5 & Preserve Baseband For iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad 1 Using Sn0wbreeze 2.8. Of course, if you are going to jailbreak the iPhone 3GS (old bootrom), you don’t need to follow the tethered booting instructions as Sn0wbreeze 2.8b2 allows untethered jailbreak for iPhone 3GS on old bootrom.
Here are all the guides to jailbreak iOS 5 on your iDevice of choice in case you are interested:
