Sn0wbreeze, much often referred to as the unofficial PwangeTool for Windows has been updated earlier today with support for jailbreaking iOS 5 beta 2. iOS 5 beta 2 was seeded to developers by Apple yesterday and it brings a host of new changes and improvements for all supported iOS devices. Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 3 release took less than 24 hours, and is now live for all those who want to download it and jailbreak iOS 5 beta 2 on Windows.
Apple unveiled iOS 5 at WWDC 2011 for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 3G, 4G, iPad 1G, 2G and Apple TV 2G. iOS 5 brings over 200 new features for supported iOS devices. Many widely appreciated features include the new Notification Center, which fixes the previous essentially flawed notification system of iOS. Apple’s new messaging platform, iMessage has also received much appreciation.
On June 7, Apple seeded the first pre-release beta of iOS 5 for developers. We gave you direct download links for iOS 5 beta 1, regardless of the fact that beta firmware is only available to developers enrolled in Apple Developer Program which costs $99 per year.

Currently, Sn0wbreeze will jailbreak iOS 5 beta 2 tethered on iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPhone 4, iPod touch 3G, 4G and iPad 1G. The iPad 2 can not be jailbroken as of now. On the other hand, if you have an iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 3 will jailbreak iOS 5 beta 2 untethered, which is only limited to this device.
Tethered jailbreak requires that you connect your device to the computer if it reboots or the battery is drained. Untethered jailbreak is devoid of all such problems. So if you have no issues with a tethered jailbreak, you may proceed to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 5 beta 2 using Sn0wbreeze 2.8 beta 3.
