There are many jailbreak tools available such as Absinthe or RedSnow that perform jailbreak on your iPhone, iPad or iPod. However, if you are a fan of the iH8Sn0w with its SnowBreeze tool, there is some good news for you. The latest Sn0wBreeze 2.9.6 is available and it supports jailbreak 5 on all iOS 5.1.1 devices. This version does not bring many changes compared to the latest 2.9.5 Sn0wBreeze. The only thing that it is new is the fact that it supports Apple TV 2 on iOS 5.0.2 and it allows you to resize the root partition.
As you may imagine, SnowBreeze 2.9.6 brings you untethered jailbreak on your device and it works only on Windows, as all SnowBreeze tools do. Before you proceed the jailbreak itself, I want you to know that it does not support A5 devices such as iPhone 4S and iPad 3rd generation. For these, you may want to look out for a different jailbreak tool.
