Sn0wbreeze 2.3b1 Brings iOS 4.3 Tethered Jailbreak, Stock Update With Baseband Preservation And Fast Tethered Boot Tool

Just a quick heads-up: iH8sn0w pushed a new update to sn0wbreeze which brings the software to v2.3b1. The new updated comes with a lot of *good stuff* such as a tethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3, stock update to iOS 4.3 with baseband preservation, and a real fast tethered boot tool.

You need:

  • iOS device ( iPhone 3Gs/4, iPad 1st gen, iPod Touch 3G/4G )
  • iOS 4.3
  • sn0wbreeze 2.3b1

How to:

1. Even if there are a couple of new features in this release, the functionality of the tool remains the same. Just follow this sn0wbreeze tutorial and you should be good. The only thing you need to pay attention to, when creating a custom iOS 4.3 ipsw, is step 6 of the tutorial. iH8sn0w added a new option which allows you to update your iOS device to a stock iOS 4.3 while preserving your baseband.

Other than that, the process is exactly the same. Just create your custom ipsw, and shift+restore your iOS device.

2. To boot into the tethered kernel, you need to use iBooty which is included with this release of sn0wbreeze. You will notice a new iBooty icon on your desktop. Just open it, select your device, and run it. Can’t get any easier than this.

3. Enjoy
