How to – Jailbreak iPhone 3G 3GS 3.1.3 with Sn0wbreeze – V1.3

As reported earlier by one of our authors (Sanix) Jailbreak And Unlock Latest IPhone 3.1.3 With Sn0wbreeze 1.4, now is the time to guide you through to jailbreak iPhone 2G, 3G and iPhone 3GS on latest iPhone firmware 3.1.3 using Sn0wbreeze – V1.3. Here I would like to mention that iPhone 3GS users with older bootrom (non-MC model) will be able to jailbreak successfully, on the other hand iPhone 3GS users who have upgraded to the stock 3.1.3 still need to wait.

Step 5:

Now use the same old procedure to restore your iPhone to this custom firmware. For new users, open iTunes, click your device as can be seen in the sidebar and then press and hold “Shift” key (from the keyboard) and click “Restore” button. You will get a pop up window asking you select your custom firmware. Select your custom firmware that was created in the previous steps and click on “Open”.
