  • 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).

      Why not just restore to stock? Then you can use it. Or are you trying to unlock? If you can't unlock, why don't you sell it and buy an older 3GS that you CAN unlock?

      For a 3G just restore to iOS4 in iTunes and then use RedSn0w 0.95b5 to JB and UltraSn0w 0.93 to unlock.

      damn... i have a 3G iPod Touch, is there any way to jailbreak 4.0 on it?

      I take it that the "mini" upgrade to iOS 4.0.1 is dealt with in the 4.01 release of the JB+unlock tool on page 1 of this thread?

      Awesome news, by the way! I will likely prefer Cydia's Backgrounder over iOS4's implementation of multitasking for at least two apps that I use frequently. The unlock will be nice to have for me around Christmas time, at which time we'll probably be up to 4.1.x, especially with Game Center on the way.

      Thanks very much for this!

      Cydia is a store installed by whichever JB program you use. What FW are you on?

      Nah...I used iOS4.0 on my 32gig iPod Touch 3G. It did tell me I jail broke it. I didn't get the Cydia App. I had to download MS dotNETFX 4.0 to use the program. The program is called, iOS4 Jailbreak.EXE...I followed directions. It worked. No Cydia. I was told to restore my iPod and use Spirit. I'm going to restore it. And download another program. Thanks for the help. Peace!

      Welcome to the wide world of trojans / viruses. Congratulations. I would say there is a 95% chance that is what you just got yourself into. Where did you get this so-called iOS4 Jailbreak.EXE?

      4.01 jailbreak is for the iPhones. Ipod touch is 4.0. The 4.01 jailbreak doesn't work. I tried already.

      Not too funny wasting over 16 hours of my time on this damn thing! I'll put it aside and wait. Have too many things going on right now.http://modmyi.com/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif

      I reformatted my iPod Touch this afternoon. Reinstalled everything. I'll wait. As for the program that jail broke it? It's not a trojan or malware. I'll delete it anyways.

      You may want to scan your PC with an antivirus and spybot search and destroy or another spyware detection app.

      I did scan my hard drive with updates from Spybot S&D. And I scanned it with Norton Corporate Antivirus. All good. (I use Webroot Window Washer everyday.)
      Thanks!

      Yes, redsn0w 0.9.5 B5-5 also jailbreaks 4.0.1. Just give it a 4.0 file instead of 4.0.1 and it still jailbreaks your 3G.
