  • 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).

      So people with a 3GS that are jailbroken with Spirit can not jailbreak iOS 4?

      Guys just wait a while, like I said they haven't touched the new 3gs because they want to test their stuff with iPhone 4, I'm positive that we will see something else this week from them.

      This is on purpose because they want to release a tool that works with all devices. Including iPhone 4.

      Or you, and the many others that are spamming the forum with stupid off topic questions, can stop posting the same stupid **** and questions over and over and let real discussion happen. Trying to sift through crap posts asking a dumb question, and the same dumb question over and over again, screws up topics so those of us with legitimate concerns can find answers. So unless you have a question that is relevant to the topic, and asking if this release will be done again for the iPhone 4 has nothing to do with this, stop spamming the topics. Seriously, shut up. If you don't have a valid question or comment and quit making it harder to find relevant information. Most of you guys should be booted off this site anyway.

      Not sure about a netbook, but if you were to look around, I'm sure you could find a virtual machine image of Snow Leopard that would run in VMware. Or, at least, so I've heard.

      No it's because I went to 4.0 official last night so I am not currently pwned. This phone has been pwned all it's life since 15 minutes after it left Apple, but last night I was feeling froggy and went to 4.0

      Now I am official 4.0, not previously pwned, what to do? Never had to deal with that, I never update on day one, hell I was still running 3.1.2......

      If you're not sure if you have the old bootrom or the new one, on your phone, go to Settings-General-About.

      Take a look at the Serial number. xxx##xxxxxx The two ## numbers in the serial are the production week (The fourth and fifth numbers basically.

      If it's week 40 or after, it's almost guaranteed to be the a bootrom. If it's 39, it can be a either the old or new(It's when they switched the bootrom in production. If it's 38 or earlier, it'll be the old bootrom.

      Wish this would've came out yesterday when I was off of work! I have 8 hrs before I go to 4.0!

      I'm so glad I kept my old bootrom 3G[S]. I was considering getting it swapped at Apple because of some hairline cracks.

      I have a 3GS, old bootrom with baseband 04.26.08, is there going to be a issue going to 4.0 with this baseband? I'm assuming the only way to jailbreak right now is through custom firmware, & must already be jailbroken. Is this right? I used redsn0w to jailbreak, then custom firmware for the updates. Currently on 3.1.2

      if the first 2 of the serial are "5K" that means it is a Refurb and could be either. Run f0recast to determine bootrom
