  • 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).

      on a 3Gs, if you are on 3.1.3 and have shsh on Saurick's servers (all of them from 3.1, 3.1.2 and 3.1.3) you can downgrade to a custom 3.1.2 (via iTunes pointint to saurick's server) then upgrade to custom 4.0 correct using pwn 4.01?

      You can downgrade to standard 3.1 or 3.12 and pwn your device then use a custom FW created with pwnage to upgrade to 4.0

      Can someone explain to me what spirit has done to not allow a jailbreak at this time?

      Spirit is not true pwnage, it is userland so does not keep the hole open.

      yes but u need a custom firmware, but at now u can just create it with a Mac.

      If u have a friend whit mac, create it with PwnageToll and put the custom on your PC, restore the iPhone with iTunes

      That is just wrong.

      If you have JB with Spirit you can not use pwnage and can not JB on iOS4

      1) (PREFACE) I have read every page of this thread and I have seen my particular situation posed by a few other people but no one answered it. I have a 3GS, FW 3.1.2, old bootrom. I used redsnow first, then the FW was updated, so I used blackra1n to JB, phone somehow got in a infinite reboot so I had to restore and I then used Spirit to JB. So here's the question: Can I use Pwnage 4.0 to JB now? ( I used pwnage tools before with my 1st Gen iPhone and in the early days of my 3GS so I am fimilar with the tools, I am just unsure if the latest Spirit JB has left me out on this one. If I cant JB, no biggy!! I can wait for Spirit/Geohot to release something in the future!!)

      2) I also have an iPad that I JBroke with Spirit. Once iOS 4 is released for the iPad, are all the Spirit users out of luck again for updating their iPads?

      Unlike some people, I am in no hurry to upgrade just to JB iOS 4. A lot of tweaks/substrates/Cydia Apps/Winterboard/etc are not even working yet on 4.0 so I would rather keep everything I have now and just wait until an option is available for my particular case instead of jumping into iOS 4 and have nothing I am used to having work (MyWi, 3G Unrestrictor, Winterboard).

      I assume this message was for me. Again, I will stay with my current FW until things are tested and more people can share their experiences with the forums.

      But if I really wanted to JB then I should be able to restore back to a stock 3.1.2 with my blobs on Cydia's server, upgrade to 4.0 and use the pwnage 4 tool right? Just trying to get a better feeling on how the process will/does work.

      And if anyone could explain in general terms why the Spirit JB conflicts with ever using tools such as Pwnage that would be great.

      Sweet! I couldn't restore my Iphone 3GS in DFU mode, so I placed the phone in normal mode, and it works!

      Why is there never a pwnagetool for Windows users?
