If you use an iPhone or iPad primarily with a Windows PC, you’ll be happy to hear that sn0wbreeze 2.1 is now available to download. Sn0wbreeze 2.1 serves a similar function as PwnageTool does for Macs, allowing Windows-based jailbreakers to preserve their current baseband (to preserve a carrier unlock) and also to use custom IPSW files.
