  • 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:

    *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).

      Check the news page of MMi. Says it right there. No jailbreak/unlock for the iPhone 4 yet. And unlock may be further along.

      iPhone4 Has New Baseband OS, ultrasn0w Will Need Rewrite

      As far as I can understand..I should be alright to use Pwnage 4 (although I don't know how or if I need to back up my SHSH)

      Any pointers would be appreciated muchly!
      If You Have An Untethered JB , You Can Use Either Pwnagetool or sn0wbreeze to jailbreak , just to be sure... find out which bootrom are you on first.. iBoot-359.3.2 - then its the new bootrom
      iBoot-359.3 - is the old one.

      Here is an tutorial to find out which bootrom are you on.

      Put into DFU mode, robotic instructions here, lol.
      On your computer... Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager
      Find "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller", subitem Apple Mobile Device USB Driver.
      Right click, choose Properties, go to Details, select
      Device Instance Path from the dropdown box. The end of this info string will tell you the bootrom version, e.g. iBoot-359.3.2

      iBoot-359.3.2 is the NEW BOOTROM
      iBoot-359.3 is the OLD BOOTROM

      To Put into DFU Mode , Do This Steps
      1. Connect your iPhone to your computer.
      2. Turn iPhone off.
      3. Hold power and home together for 10 seconds (exactly).
      4. Release power but keep holding home until the computers beeps (observed on a PC) as a USB device is recognized.
      5. A few seconds later iTunes should detect your iPhone.
      6. If the Restore Logo is present on the screen, you are in Recovery Mode, not DFU

      No it's not true.
      To use pwnage you need to be already pwned (if you can get to 3.12 you can pwn your device if it's not already pwned) and you need the old iBoot (359.3 not 359.3.2)
      The BaseBand has nothing to do with it.

      Thanks confucious....

      I do not get an error per se, it just hangs about 1/2 through the restore to 3.1.2. I leave it for about 20 minutes and it doesnt move. I'm on iTunes 9.2 but I am going to try it on a iTunes 9.1 in a few more minutes. When I tried it last time, I got an error 1015 (using iTunes 9.1) but I think using blackrain gets me out of that loop. Once I hopefully get back to 3.1.2 I will jailbreak then try to upgrade to custom 4.0 using pwntool 4.0.1
      I'll let you know and again...well I'll just hit thanks..

      I'm good here. Old boot rom and all blobs on sauriks server. Still trying to get to 3.1.2 though, keeps hanging on the status bar screen when using iTunes 9.2 to restore to 3.1.2

      well back to 3.1.2, 5.12.01 modem, unlocked so I have signals again. Now do I really upgrade to 4.0? I changed the source in the pwntool to http://apt.saurik.com/dists/tangelo-...s-arm/Packages. Is that all I need to do?

      no more for me. Tried to do a 4.0 upgrade and it stalls at the very end. I'll stay at 3.1.2 unlocked and working until something easier comes out....

      A small issue I just ran into: I opened Cydia for the first time after installing custom 4.0 and it wouldn't load (was just a black screen). I turned the phone off, then on and it loaded fine.
      what version of itunes are you using? i did my jb with black rain at first then when I went 3.1.3 I had to use spirit, I saw something on here saying not to use the most current version of itunes.

      Hopefully someone can help me out here.

      What does it mean for people with a 3.1.3 old bootrom unjailbroken 3GS? Does it look like a solution is in sight? should I upgrade to IOS 4? Should I wait at 3.1.3? Can I jailbreak my 3.1.3 GS and downgrade to 3.1.2? Can anyone help me with this?

      Thanks

      My phone had no service (3.1.2 - blackra1n), so after trying numerous methods I updated and restored to OS4.0, I now have service but my baseband has changed from 05.11.07 to 05.13.04. I believe that I have the old bootrom, but I tried finding the info under Device Manager but the Canadian version doesn't seem to display it.

      Does this current Jailbreaking method support my phone? Or am I sht out of luck for the time being?

      Thanks

      when you tried to look up your iboot# to see what bootrom you had, did you have your phone in DFU mode or recovery mode. Be sure to have it in DFU mode. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiTcKMZfyfk]YouTube - How to put your iPhone in DFU mode[/ame]
      there is a link on how to do it

      If people have their 3.12 blobs on file (and have old Bootrom) they can downgrade to 3.12, JB then use pwnage.
      If you are 3.13 without blobs or have the new BootRom they should stay on 3.13 JB with Spirit and unlock with UltraSn0w.
      The 3G has no problems and a straight upgrade to 4 and JB with RedSn0w works fine.

      Well, I found what I was looking for from the "bay". itunes 9.0 did all the stuff from the guide then had to update to itunes 9.2. Maybe it was just me but I thought I had seen something from the beginning to not update to itunes 9.2
