Sn0wbreeze is considered as the unofficial PwnageTool for Windows. The iPhone Dev Team is about to release the PwnageTool to jailbreak iOS 4.3 of Mac users.
Recently, iH8sn0w just released Sn0wbreeze 2.3b1 for Windows. The Sn0wbreeze 2.3b1 also allows people to jailbreak and unlock their iPhone and to update their iPhone with a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.3 firmware while preserving the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w.
Sn0wbreeze 2.3 allows users to create custom iOS 4.3 firmware file that is pre-jailbroken, which can be used to upgrade their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to iOS 4.3. If you are using iPhone, it also has the ability to preserve the baseband from being upgraded so that you can unlock it using Ultrasn0w through the “Baseband Preservation Mode,” which is applicable on iPhone 4 users on baseband 01.59.00 or earlier and iPhone 3G/iPhone 3GS users on baseband 05.13.04 or earlier.
The Sn0wbreeze 2.3 supports devices such as iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, Verizon iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G and iPad. Users will have to use iBooty to boot into jailbroken state (which is installed on your desktop after running Sn0wbreeze 2.3) if for whatever reason they need to reboot their iOS device as Sn0wbreeze 2.3 only supports tethered jailbreak.
The Sn0wbreeze 2.3 is still in beta so expect it to be not in its finest form. t is also important to note that Mobile Substrate is currently broken in iOS 4.3 so jailbreak tweaks such as WinterBoard, Lockdown etc will not work.

On March 11, Apple will release the iOS 4.3 and seeded iOS 4.3 GM to developers of iOS developer program few days back. If you are wondering if this latest iOS can be jailbroken, then this must be good news for you since the iOS 4.3 GM has already been jailbroken using PwnageTool 4.2 that iPhone dev team had released to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1.
The final version of the iOS 4.3 will be released along with Apple’s second generation of iPad. The new iOS 4.3 features the Nitro Javscript engine from Safari on OS X, new iTunes Home Sharing features that let you play content from desktop iTunes over WiFi, and the updated suite of AirPlay features from the betas — including the ability for App Store apps to share audio and video. Apple is also finalizing the new option that let you assign the side switch to either rotation lock or mute, and its adding Personal Hotspot support. There is also those rumored iOS versions of Photo Booth and FaceTime for the new cameras.
The unofficial custom bundles for iOS 4.3 GM for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPad that need to be used along with PwnageTool 4.2, Universal Ramdisk Fixes and tetheredboot utility to jailbreak iOS 4.3 was released by DjayB6.
Recently, the jailbreak is tethered for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS (new bootrom) and iPad. iPhone 3GS (old bootrom), on the other hand, is untethered by the jailbreak. Cydia also seems to be work on iOS 4.3 perfectly. It is still unsure if iPhone Dev team or Chronic Dev team will release an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3 when it is released. For the mean time, iPhone Jailbreakers and Unlockers should avoid upgrading to iOS 4.3.
