Now you can jailbreak your Verizon iPhone on Windows with Sn0wbreeze 2.6.1. Verizon users were kind of left out when Apple released iOS 4.3.2 and the untethered jb was released. 4.2.7 for Verizon phones got no update.
This is what the release notes for the software say:
“sn0wbreeze 2.6.1: Verizon love!
Well, after i0n1c released his untether exploit for 4.3.1, Apple shortly pushed out 4.3.2 AND 4.2.7. i0n1c‚Äö√Ñ√¥s payload was ported over to 4.3.2 in a short period of time but not 4.2.7. This made Verizon users very frustrated.
I originally ordered a Verizon iPhone 4 for my upcoming SHSH blobs dumper. Then I + many others on twitter realized that an untether was not available for 4.2.7. Over the past few weeks, I‚Äö√Ñ√¥ve been sick and didn‚Äö√Ñ√¥t do much, but today I was finally able to get the strength to work on this Verizon untether. Since i0n1c‚Äö√Ñ√¥s payload is not easily reversible, I went to previous exploits.
After trying, pod2g‚Äö√Ñ√¥s + posixninja‚Äö√Ñ√¥s kernel exploit for 4.2.x is STILL in 4.2.7! After some more work, I managed to get this thing untethered!
So, this new release includes that new payload to untether + jailbreak 4.2.7.”

We ran a jailbreak guide Sn0wbreeze a while back. The procedure remains the same, only that you must use the current iPhone ipsw.
Here’s our guide.
Also, the easiest way to get the ipsw is to download this tool (link) and tell it what version device and firmware you need. It does the rest.
