  • PwnageTool 4.0 Released: Jailbreak & Unlock iOS 4


    Update: For anyone who saw iBooks problems after redsn0w beta, try the latest one (see update #2 at Dev-Team Blog - all four one! )

    Just one day after the relase of iOS 4.0, the Dev-Team has done it once again. Not only did they release an unlock tool the day iOS 4 came out, they have now released a brand new version of PwnageTool for creating custom iOS 4.0 firmware packages. This means almost everyone can get on board now. *almost everybody.

    As per usual, the same instructions apply that have always been the case with PwnageTool. Follow the onscreen instructions just as they say. Within a few minutes you will have a custom firmware package to install. But don't get too far ahead of yourself. You need to scroll down and read the instructions provided by the Dev-Team.

    If you have been tinkering with the unofficial release of PwnageTool 4.0, we strongly urge you to restore and use this version instead as the leaked version did not include patches that are required for ultrasn0w unlock.

    Download PwnageTool 4.01 for Mac:
    MMi Member Mirror
    Rapidshare
    Megaupload

    Download PwnageTool 4.0 for Mac:
    MMi Member Mirror
    Rapidshare
    Megaupload
    Mediafire

    *PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING VERY CAREFULLY!

    Dev-Team Blog

    As advised, you shouldn’t have upgraded your devices if you have previously relied on our tools for hacktivation and/or a carrier unlock.

    Each supported device has few different scenarios that users need to consider when performing the upgrades, you need to check below and perform the upgrade in the particular way that matches your current device state.

    NB: With PwnageTool 4.0 certain devices are not supported this is because they are not supported in iOS 4.0 or they are not supported by our software.

    iPhone 2G - not supported
    iPod Touch - not supported
    iPod Touch 3G - not supported
    iPhone 3G

    If you have a Jailbroken iPhone 3G at 3.1.2 (but not jailbroken with Spirit) then you should create the ipsw with PwnageTool 4.0 and restore from recovery mode or DFU mode.
    If you have an out of the box iPhone 3G you should restore using a PwnageTool 4.0 ipsw using DFU mode.
    If you have a Jailbroken 3.1.3 iPhone 3G it is very possible that this can fail from recovery mode, if this failure happens you will need to restore using DFU mode.
    IMPORTANT! Whenever you need to enter DFU mode, you will need to do so using PwnageTool.

    iPhone 3GS

    Summary: PwnageTool only works on previously jailbroken 3GS devices with the old bootrom.

    If you have a Jailbroken iPhone 3GS with the OLD BOOTROM and you DID NOT use Spirit to jailbreak then you can create the ipsw with PwnageTool 4.0 and restore with recovery mode.
    If you have an iPhone 3GS with the NEW BOOTROM this is NOT supported by PwnageTool 4.0
    iPod touch 2G

    If you have an iPod touch 2G that is jailbroken (but not with Spirit) then you can restore using recovery mode.
    Baseband Unlock

    iPhone 3G and 3GS baseband unlockers (those who rely on ultrasn0w to make phone calls) should always be very wary to update their firmware, however our Ultrasn0w application will unlock all recent (including the current) 3GS and 3G baseband firmware versions, once you are jailbroken using PwnageTool 4.0, install ultrasn0w from Cydia and you’ll be unlocked.

    Remember! This baseband unlock situation is rare, should you upgrade your iPhone blindly at the next iOS release please don’t expect an unlock - but for now you are OK (whatever state your baseband is in).

      All i wanna know is if iFile and MiWi is compatible with this new OS. Those are the two most important jailbreak programs i rely on. Can't live without root access to my phone or tethering. Also Safari downloader and Youtube downloader compatibility would be GREAT as well!! Anyone tried yet... anyone know... ANYBODY...???

      Alright screw this. I'll just wait for Geohot or Redsn0w. Custom firmwares never work for me because itunes always give me bullcrap errors

      hmmm it looked like it was taking the firmware but it didn;t and it showed back up as 3.1.3

      I have the firmware 04.26.08

      I shouldn't have this problem with the 1600 Error.

      anyone have ideas?

      I think I figured out the Error 1600!

      I didn't put my phone in DFU or Recovery mode after i made the custom file.

      I just went to my iphone's normal page and OPTION Clicked RESTORE and chose the new custom firmware.

      I repeat, I DID NOT have my phone in Recovery or DFU mode and it's working.

      If your phone is stuck like mine at this recovery bar? how do you get it past or fix it? Also anyway to kick it out of recovery and dfu mode while on a mac? or no?

      My phone automatically kicked it out of recovery mode somehow.

      I kept disconnected the USB and reconnecting and it kicked it out of recovery mode eventually.

      If anyone gets a 16## error try again should work second time did for me. Also once installed if you don't have no signal run the unlock.

      Just used it, was able to restore to custom IPSW. I allowed itunes to restore a previous backup when i was running 3.12 firmware. To my surprise Tethering was still active from the last jailbreak.

      Just curious. What if you have an old bootrom 3GS, but you jailbroke it at 3.1.3 with Spirit?

      Sweet, Great job guys. I am not too sure how to use the pwnage tool as I was windows based. Now I just picked up a mac. I think I'll wait for the Pwnd4life to come around

      After messing around with this for over an hour, I was finally able to successfully install the custom 4.0 firmware. Here's what I did:

      Iphone 3GS 3.3.1 (Old Bootrom) Legit activation

      I downgraded to 3.2.1 Firmware using DFU mode and when I got a 1604 error in iTunes, I used Blackra1n to jailbreak it. I then put the phone into DFU mode and restored using the customized 4.0 firmware. It received a 1600 error, so I put the phone into recovery mode (with the connect to iTunes logo) and tried again. The firmware installed with no errors and was jailbroken. Hope this helps!
