Famous jailbreak tool Sn0wbreeze updated to version 2.9.3 and now supports all iOS devices except iPhone 4S, iPad 2, the new 3rd-gen iPad, and Apple TV. This version of Sn0wbreeze allows to jailbreak iOS 5.1 and any previous version of iOS.
This is still tethered jailbreak so you will still have to plug your device to computer each time you want to restart it to remain it jailbroken. For real iDevice fans it can’t be a big disadvantage as we have already got used to flaws that comes with Apple devices.
Sn0wbreeze is developed by the same guy ih8sn0w who stands behind iOS 5.1 downgrade tool and many other iOS related hacks and applications. ih8sn0w also claims that he is working on untethered solution for the same list of devices and will be available sometime soon.
It took almost a month for iOS developers to develop working jailbreak for non A5 powered devices that works with iOS 5.1. A5 powered devices were really hard to jailbreak once iPhone 4S was released and took a few months for developers to find a exploit that allowed to make this jailbreak available for public.
If you are don’t have A5 powered device you are very lucky and now you can jailbreak your iOS 5.1 powered device using Sn0wbreeze v2.9.3.
