STEP 2: Place your device in DFU mode and browse the iOS 5.1 firmware for your device from the jailbreak utlility.
STEP 3: After selecting the firmware version, click simple mode from options so that Snowbreeze is able to a custom firmware file and place the custom made firmware file on any location (usually the desktop)
STEP 4: After the custom firmware is built, put your device back in DFU mode and click start to put your device in PwnedDFU mode.
STEP 5: After that open iTunes, hold the shift key button and click restore. Select the custom firmware made through SnowBreeze.
STEP 6: If the restore procedure is successful, you’ll see a Cydia icon on your home screen (usually on the second page). If it’s so, place your device back in DFU mode and locate/execute the iBooty file from the iBooty folder and select your device from the menu and click start.

Once the process is complete the main home page screen will appear and then you’ll be able to operate your jailbroken deivce. Remember, whenever you reboot your device, you’ll have to perform step 6.
