  • 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!

      ....so if my iPhone 4 at 4.1 is already jb via gp is there any advantage for me to now use this pwnage tool.

      i guess i've read so many posts on these recent exploits i'm now a bit confused.

      thanks

      Snowbreeze has a bad rep and there the jailbreak is customizable such as boot logos and different partition sizes. You can pre install packages too!

      I'm not sure if you all want to get your hopes up for a Sunday release. I checked wizdaz (dev for pwnageTool) Twitter feed and his response to a status update question, wasn't too positive. Hope I am wrong though.


      wizdaz @L3v3l12 i don't know who and what set to Release on Sunday, sorry
      3 days ago*in reply to L3v3l12

      BTW... greenpois0n was released for Mac a few hours ago

      VIA @MuscleNerd's twitter on Oct 12, 2010

      For AppleTV 2G users, the goal is for PwnageTool to cover you by Funday/Sunday (but still very limited app capability)


      i would assume if they release a pwnagetool update that it would cover 3g and 3gs users too...i mean why just release an APPLE TV pwnagetool update...can do **** with it yet anyways...so iphone is more important...so you would think it would cover all devices..but i guess we will see. i hope it is sunday...but if not i can wait no biggie..i am JB and unlocked anyways. :P

      Yeah, but some of us would like to be on 4.1. I want Pwnage tool because I want to keep the stock boot logo and recovery logo's. Could care less about baseband since I don't need an unlock.

      Huh? If you dont care about unlock just update to 4.1 and use greenpoison or limera1n. What are you talking about stock boot logo?

      Dev team never announced it. Musclenerd had a few tweets that sort of insinuated that it would be Sunday, but it was never a guarantee.
