  • 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).

      Hackintosh all the way baby! With an official Snow Leopard disk of course.
      It's not that simple to just install OSX86 on any machine, it depends which distro you use and what hardware you're running. They should just release stuff on linux, then you could run a LiveCD/USB, run the program and be done with it. Loads quicker and easier than dual booting....unless you actually take the time to learn.

      And to everyone asking about bootroms.....stop spamming this thread with duplicate questions and DO SOME ******* RESEARCH, the Dev Team aren't always going to wipe your arses

      Everyone should just calm down and be patient. Geohot will come with the heat soon enough! Blackra1n is so much better than anything else. His next release will be the best one out there.

      What makes you think I did not read through? I knew exactly what I was doing and what I did is exactly how it should be done. For some reason, it will not recognize the IPSW. I've been to iClarified before I did it and I am doing everything step by step, but nothing seems to work. If I can use iRecovery to get out of the iTunes connection screen, I can try to restore and redo it.

      George is very, very clever but is quick and dirty.
      His next release will almost certainly do something that hasn't been done, which was why I was surprised he announced pwnt4life - we know he found the same exploit that Sherif Hashim did (I was very surprised I had to ask him and MN to take their conversations out of the public eye) but am unsure what else he has - maybe an untethered JB for the 3GS? But until the iPhone 4 is in his hands he won't know if it will work with that.

      I don't know, we'll see. He knows where to find me if he wants to talk about it but I think he might have something that he might spring on us.

      My guess is that you have the old bootrom.

      Didn't work on my 3GS and is hanging up during restore or giving me the 1603 and 1604 error. I'd recommend holding off on Pwnage Tool for a few days.

      the original post was kind of confusing, but now with all the repitive questions it's all that much more effed up. Point blank, this will not jailbreak and unlock 05.12.01 yet correct?

      Do you have the older or new bootrom?

      This is NOT what most people were looking for. How about a straight unlock/JB of iOS4? This is so specific with what you can/can't do or what should have/shouldn't have done its almost worthless. They've had so long to work on this and this is the best they can do? I miss the days of 3.1.2 and ra1n. It doesn't get any better/easier than that. GeoHot is the man and I have a feeling he's gonna render PwnageTool worthless with his program.

      BTW, I'm on AT&T and have never JB/Unlocked my personal device so I'm a pretty neutral observer.

      Pwnagetool has always been a Mac only software. The PC equivalent of pwnagetool (sn0wbreeze) should be released soon. I've been following the sn0wbreeze author on Twitter and he said that he is currently working on the new sn0wbreeze. So anyone on PC should hold off on updating untilk sn0wbreeze or even redsn0w gets released.
