Jailbreak iPhone 3GS/3G With 3.1.3 Firmware Using Sn0wbreeze 3.1.3-v1.3

Written By Sam on 5 February 2010

If you are a iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G user and updated your firmware to 3.1.3, here is a good news for you. A new version of Sn0wbreeze is released which can be used to jailbreak iPhone 3GS/3G on 3.1.3 firmware. The latest version Sn0wbreeze 3.1.3(sn0wbreeze 3.1.3-V1.3-iPhones.exe) can be used to jailbreak iPhone 2G, 3G and iPhone 3GS(older bootrom non-MC model). If you are a iPhone 3GS user with 3.1.3 stock firmware (original unmodified firmware) then you are still out of luck! The current version of sn0w breeze can only be used for iPhone models and if you have iPod Touch on 3.1.3 firmware then you need to use redsn0w 0.9.4.

Procedure to Jailbreak iPhone on 3.1.3 Firmware With sn0wbreeze

  • Download iTunes and take a backup of all your data. This will be useful to restore your data back after the unlocking process or even if something goes wrong.
  • Download sn0wbreeze 3.1.3 for Windows.
  • Also Download the iPhone OS 3.1.3.[Download iPhone OS 3.1.3 for iPhone and iPod Touch(Direct Download Links)]
  • Run sn0wbreeze and select the “Simple Mode”. If you need more options then select the “Expert Mode”.
  • You will now be asked to browse for the .ipsw file. Select the iPhone 3.1.3 firmware and sn0wbreeze will verify the ipsw file that you have selected.
  • Once the file is verified you need to click the blue button present on the right bottom. Sn0wbreeze will now ask you “Do you want to activate your iPhone?”. Click “Yes” if you want to hactivate your iPhone or “No” if you are on an official carrier.
  • Click “Start” when you are ready to make your IPSW.
  • Once the process is completed you will be shown “sn0wbreeze seems to have successfully created your IPSW, this file will be located on your desktop”.
  • Now you have to restore your iPhone with the custom 3.1.3 firmware that you have created with sn0wbreeze 3.1.3.
  • Connect your iPhone 3G[S], and Enter Recovery Mode. Now launch iTunes to restore your iPhone with the custom Firmware built by sn0wbreeze. Hold down SHIFT while clicking the RESTORE button in iTunes.
  • Now browse and select the custom IPSW file that was created and click on β€œOpen”.
  • iTunes will restore the custom firmware and this might take around 10 mins.
  • After that your iPhone will restart automatically and will be jailbroken.

Once you are done with jailbreaking your iPhone you can unlock it to use any SIM card.
