You may remember that earlier over the weekend iPhone hacker iH8sn0w released Snowbreeze 2.2 fixing the issue with iBooks on jailbroken devices. He has since updated it to version 2.2.1, which adds some fixes for jailbreaking the Verizon iPhone 4 (running on iOS 4.2.6) and also adds drag and drop IPSW support.

This version is also said to fix issues some may experience when using Windows’ classic theme.
