  • 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!

      jailbreakme.com will only happen again if there is another exploit that can be accessed via mobile safari.

      What's stopping you now? If you need an unlock just use tiny umbrella to preserve you baseband.

      Snowbreeze (for windows) will be coming out shortly after pwnagetool and will no doubt do exactly the same thing as pwnagetool.

      It never seems as stable as pwnagetool though.

      Nothing but I prefer to use dev team tools if possible

      Maybe Christmas time, a christmas unlock for all. Just like they gave us a new jailbreak at 3.0 on New Year's Day.

      That sucks but then again..It's an Apple Product so it only makes sense to make it for Mac's First.

      why does this even matter if its out for mac windows or anything at all, cuz we have green poison and limera1n and 4.2 isnt even out yet

      1. It's important for unlockers who can't get to 4.1 without updating the baseband. Esp. 3GS

      2. It's tiny umbrella he doesn't want to use, not limerain. Tiny umbrella seems sound to preserve the baseband though, so I wouldn't worry for the ip4.

      So is there a guaranteed tethered jb for all future A4 ios4 updates for the iphone 4 yet? This was going to be greenposi0ns job right?

      Greenpoison will be able to jailbreak all firmwares from now on but on a tethered basis only (assuming apple keep on patching the userland exploits).

      Or the dev teams tweak the tool using up more exploits.

      Pwnage tool is using the limera1n exploit to jailbreak. It's then using the exploit by comex to make it an untethered jailbreak. The tweet by muclenerd said they have found a way to adapt the comex exploit to make all future firmwares untethered for A4 devices.

      Awesome news!!!!

      Can someone confirm this: according to www.iphonehacks.com snowbreeze is the windows version of pwnagetool. Is this true?

      http://www.iphonehacks.com/2010/10/p...ming-soon.html

      Also for newbies (including me) check out the wiki page on jailbreaking. It helps clarify which jb tool breaks which iOS on which computer. See table under 'software used'.
