  • 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:

    Rapidshare
    Megaupload

    Download PwnageTool 4.0 for Mac:

    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).

      @one1 thanks for correcting me. That answer my question so as long as you're jailbroken you can upgrade! As long as is not with spirit lol. I'm screwed I had my 3GS replaced and I got one with 3.1.3 already on it so my only way to jb was spirit. Guess I have to keep waiting

      I have just downgraded from ios4 to 3.1.2 and was wondering if i need to jailbreak with blackrain befor restoring ios4.0 custom ?
      I thinking not but better been safe than sorry eh.

      i also went from 3.1.2 blackrain to 3.1.3 spirit then 4.0 back to 3.1.2. Will that spirit jailbreak affect me installing even thou im back at 3.1.2?

      I jailbroke 3.1.3 w/ baseband 4.26.08 on spirit. This afternoon, I jailbroke using the new dev team pwnage tool. I was able to jailbreak and unlock my phone with little problems. Itunes didnt recognize my phone at first, but as soon as I updated, the problem was gone. Now I am on 4.0 w/ 04.26.08, successfully unlocked.

      Is anyone else getting "Wrong firmware bundle" when selecting iPhone2,1_4.0_8A293_Restore

      I have checked in the PwnageTool.app/Contents/Resources/FirmwareBundles and it contains the iPhone2,1_4.0_8A293.bundle

      Any ideas?

      using pwange4.0 to make a custom ipsw for a iphone 3GS, old boot rom, running 3.1.2 4.26 baseband, always JB with pwnage.legit activation.

      should i enable the baseband update option in pwnage?

      Depends on if you require an unlock or not. If you have an official sim which will activate once you activate in itunes then you can enable baseband update, if you dont have an official sim which will activate it itunes you will need to deselect that option.

      woah, talk about coming out of left field.

      Just choose whichever pic you want, hit the arrow on the bottom left corner like normal, hit use as wallpaper and after that it will give you the option of which wallpaper (lock screen or background).

      Success. I guess I was being impatient. For the record, Pwnage Tool DOES work for PowerPC [PPC] processors. I'm on 4.0 unlocked and sync'ing right now on 3GS with old bootom.
