Upcoming Features from developer

The current version of Ac1dSn0w is in an early development stage. In the future it will also be able to jailbreak remote devices. This means that you just need to install a server program on any OS (Linux, BSD, Windows) and Ac1dSn0w will jailbreak it on a client machine anywhere in the world. Other upcoming features are:

  • Custom Firmware Creation
  • iRecovery Remote (you can talk to remote devices and send your own payloads etc)

Update X1:

MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev-Team has confirmed that Ac1dSn0w in it’s current state contains code that has been illegally distributed. We have removed all the download links of Ac1dSn0w until the team behind the tool fixes this issue.
