  • 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.

    *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).

      It's pretty odd how GM Candidate had iBooks working perfectly, then on the final official build it somehow messes it up. xD


      I just noticed Dev-Team pumped out 4.01 Pwnage Tool too, amazing bunch! You've saved the day yet again Dev-Team! Thanks!

      I have the custom iOS4 IPSW file. If I update my 3GS to this, will this change my base base from 5.11.07? I actually want to unlock this phone and sell it soon. So I want to make sure I don't kill my unlocking chances.

      Haha when I first read that I thought Apple had already thrown out a 4.01 update to fix their iBooks issue.

      But just noticed it's an update to the Pwnage Tool to fix that iBook issue.

      Well here we go again! If only I could get my freaking boot logos to actually work at 320x480.

      Anyone would be able to tell me if you use ultrasn0w just once with your phone, you "forever" lose your Push Notification and you have to find a Push Fix on Cydia? Reason is I lost carrier yesterday after downgrading to 3.1.2 and once I got it all back up I only got the carrier back after installing ultrasn0w.. Then now I restored to factory 4.0 and Push still doesn't work.. Anyone have any ideas?

      If it's custom, then you should be fine since it'll preserve your baseband. Even if it DID update it (Which it won't) you won't be missing out on an unlock since ultrasn0w unlocks EVERY baseband up to date. So for now, your safe.

      The way push works is that upon seeing the "Activation" process, if you have an AT&T SIM. Apple verifies this and then sends you a unique certificate which is what allows the phone to receive push notifications in the first place.

      If however, you have say a T-Mobile SIM card upon Activation, it cannot verify your SIM, so basically hacktivating it I believe just lets you skip this step all completely but in return you don't have a unique push certificate.

      No, there's not a permanent way to mess up push since you can just restore and try again and even so, there's apps like Push Fix (Which came out first and its the one I use) or Push Doctor that can help you fix this.

      Dear Staff, I own Apple iPhone 3GS. As you probably understand I upgraded purposely following the guide on the website www.unlockediphone.info/members/iOS4/3GSWinJail..., which is you know the outcome. The outcome is dark and I see the light somewhere. I live in different country so in a way I won't be having chance to insert AT&T sim card in order to get rid of that lock. This iphone was once jailbroken & unlocked, but I run spirit over the blackrain since I was fed up tethering jailbreak & unlock every boot time, without reading the guide through. So I wondered around up to this day, paid to above mentioned website, there is a line saying: 4.0.0 (3G): iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw. Restore is preferred as it won't create any wasted space on your iPhone. So I restored with given IPSW, just wanted to kick off the jailbreak as I found out there isn't any for new bootrom, all of them designed for old bootroms or not upgraded to 3.1.3 yet ones. So please assist or help to the one with bricked phone. Let happiness rule the world, just google how to make the person happy, I bet you will find one with saying unlock the iphone. Isn't it cool my man. Tell me what to do.

      Hey RaiV3R thx for the reply. That's what I thought myself and after restoring to factory 4.0 with my AT&T SIM inside, Setup as a New Phone, it even said iPhone Is Activated.. But no push, I launched pingchat and that's when a warning came up saying about not being able to authenticate with apple push server.. Then I tested beejive and nothing either.. Any ideas?

      hey auwkeung, the default repo for Cydia installer in 4.0.1 Pwnage Tool is outdated. You'll need to add this repo in Pwnage Tool to get the latest Cydia installer: http://apt.saurik.com/dists/tangelo-...s-arm/Packages . Anyone having trouble with multi-tasking? is this known?

      bigorangekitty, once again I should have looked 5 more minutes prior to asking, saw on pg. 13 of this thread that if you uninstall winterboard multitasking will be enabled. That works, just about to try reinstalling winterboard to see if that disables it again-

      yes, unfortunately Winterboard disables multitasking whether it's installed via Pwnage Tool 4.0.1 during jailbreak or from Cydia after jailbreak--
