  • 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).

      ARG, if I go into DFU I get a 1600 error if I go into recovery it never goes past "Preparing iPhone for Restore".

      Screwed either way, don't remember how to fix this.....and I've been doing it for years now.

      Help me out on this error, I forgot the fix. OS X10.6.2, 3gs, itunes 9., was pwned 3.1.3, but went official 4.0 last night

      Nah this is almost the same as last pwnage as it still only works on previously pwned devices and older bootrom.

      I'm waiting for the big guns, I know they'll release it when they have iPhone 4 on their hands.

      Why do you need a windows version, snowbreeze is down the road, redsnow is right here and you can download a previous cooked firmware from a simple google search.

      are we on the new bootrom being left out on purpose, because of our mistake

      I have an iPhone 3Gs with the new bootrom and unlocked by ultrasn0w, but pwnagetool won't touch it

      Great news! Looks like I'll be sticking with 3.0 until my iPhone 4 purchase on Thursday. My craigslist buyer wants 3.0 to stay on it. Makes things easier for me!

      Too much risk in a downloaded custom IPSW. Plus, 3Gs users cant use redsn0w and snowbreeze does not have an ETA

      just wondering if you guys could be a bit more specific about old and new bootrom. those that havent updated since 3.1.1 or 2 might not know what you are talking about.

      Also - anyone got a direct link to the ispw. if so I can host the file for the windows users.

      I am not understanding this OLD and NEW bootrom stuff

      But ah well im a Windows user anyway....

      Hopefully Geohot can get out a more simpler JB for windows users and people that are already on the latest 4.0
