We have put together a quick 10-step tutorial on how to jailbreak your A4 and pre-A4 Apple devices running iOS 6.1.3. This includes the iPhone 4, 3Gs, iPod 4G etc..
Important This is a tethered jailbreak and your device will need to be reconnected to a computer should it be cut of power, rebooted or shuts off due to a dead battery.
Important Sn0wBreeze is for Windows users only.
As we all know by now the release of the latest firmware update from Apple 6.1.3 killed the Evasi0n jailbreak which in turn bought an end to the untethered jailbreak and essentially the tethered jailbreak on newer devices such as the iPhone 5, iPad mini, iPod 5G, iPad 4… etc.
This tutorial will show you in 10 easy to follow steps how to jailbreak your A4 and pre A4 devices running 6.1.3 with Seas0nPass 2.9.14
Step 1: Download the latest version of Sn0wbreeze, which is v2.9.14. You can download following the link below or you can head over to our downloads section and find it from out list there.
Step 2: Launch Sn0wbreeze, click on the blue arrow that is located in the bottom right of the window.
Step 3: Once you have clicked the blue arrow you then need to click on Browse for an IPSW and select the firmware you downloaded from the previous step.
Step 4: Give it a few minutes and Sn0wbreeze should tell you the firmware has been verified, click on the blue arrow again, and then from the next screen you will need to click on “Simple Mode”
Step 5: Once you get to this point Sn0wbreeze will start creating the custom firmware file. This can take a while so either go grab a brew or sit and play some of the installed games that are available on Sn0wbreeze.
Step 6: After the custom firmware has been created Sn0Breeze will dump it on to your desktop and will now ask you to enter DFU mode. Follow the instructions on screen on how to do this.
Step 7: Once in DFU mode launch iTunes. Make sure you keep your device plugged in to your PC.
Step 8: Once you’re in, iTunes will detect your device in recovery mode. Don’t panic, this is supposed to happen. Using your PC keyboard press and hold down SHIFT key and click on Restore. You should see a box pop up on iTunes. Select the firmware from your desktop.
Step 9: Let the restore process complete, could take a while so grab another brew if you need!
Step 10: After the restore is complete you can open your device to find the holy grail AKA Cydia installed on your springboard.
Remember this is a tethered jailbreak, so if your device is powered down then you will need to follow these instructions to get your device back to a jailbroken state and out of the frozen recovery loop.
As a part of the tethered jailbreak Sn0wbreeze will have created you a folder for a tool called iBooty. This is the tool you will need everytime you need to boot tethered.
Step 1: Launch iBooty from your folder.
Step 2: Select your device from the drop-down menu, then click start. Follow the onscreen instructions to place your device in to DFU mode.
Step 3: Once complete your device will boot and you are free to download and install your favourite tweaks and themes from Cydia.
That’s it folks, that all you need to do to jailbreak your A4 and pre A4 devices that are running iOS 6.1.3. Although it a tethered jailbreak, it is certainly better than not having one at all.
