  • PwnageTool To Jailbreak All Future Firmwares on A4 iDevices


    MuscleNerd, a developer from the Dev-Team, has hinted at the possibility of PwnageTool being able to provide untethered jailbroken firmware creation for ALL future firmware updates on devices that use the A4 chip (iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and iPad).

    "Think we've figured out a way to extend PwnageTool+limera1n+@comex hacks to untethered JBs for all future A4 firmwares " says MuscleNerd via twitter. The announcement gives a bit more confidence to jailbreakers who are afraid of being left out when future updates come, like iOS 4.2 for example. This one being a major update for the iPad users, and losing their jailbreaks could be disappointing if there was no way to jailbreak.

    While Limera1n and Greenpois0n are also considered "exploits for life" for the A4, it is not likely that they would be untethered tools in the future, once Apple patches the exiting tools currently used. PwnageTool on the otherhand, would be able to provide these untethered jailbroken firmwares even after Apple patches the current holes that currently provide us an untethered jb. This once again, is what iPad and iPhone 4 users want to hear, as this means you'll be able to jailbreak, untethered, for "life".

    If this is the case, we may see PwnageTool once again being the main tool for Jailbreaking your iDevices, as we all know, a tethered JB is no fun at all.

    Tomorrow will be the official release, so keep your eyes peeled for Sunday Funday!

      It will jailbreak every iOS for all already produced devices. However, with each new iOS there will be certain updates that need to be made to limera1n, greenpois0n, pwnage tool, etc. in order for them to support the newer versions. Take a look at redsn0w, the same exploit is used for every version of it, they just need to update it for each new iOS.

      So, does pwnage tool simply preserve the part of the OS that contains the userland exploit? Is that how the JB's will continue to be un-tethered? It sounds plausible, considering pwnage tool currently preserves the baseaband for unlock

      To all you people hoping a version of pwnage tool will come out for windows dont hold your breath. Pwnage has always been Mac only. There was WinPwn way back in the day but i dont think it was a Dev team product. I miss WinPwn . But its ok cause i have my Hackintosh.

      A guy named cmw did winpwn with the help/blessing of the dev team I believe. Wonder what ever happened to him...

      Yea i was just reading up on that cause i was curious myself what had happened to that. I guess Planetbeing had a lot to do with that tool. I liked it and used it all the time back when it was around.

      Or in english, your iOS device MUST be hooked up to your computer and you must rejailbreak it for it to come back on.

      jailbreakme.com was a one time deal only. We are back to computer required jailbreaks again.
