  • iPhone 3G[S] 3.1 Jailbroken - PwnageTool 3.1.3 Released
    PwnageTool 3.1.3 is out now - and jailbreaks the 3G[S] (with a caveat) as well as all other iPhone models, and the iPod Touch 1G and 2G.

    The iPod Touch 3G is NOT supported, and the iPhone 3G and 3G[S] are only supported if they were jailbroken by PwnageTool at 3.0 or 3.0.1.

    EDIT: To clarify, whether you jailbroke with redsn0w or PwnageTool, you're still Pwn'd.

    PwnageTool 3.1.3 Download Links
    MMi Member Mirror
    Rapidshare
    MegaUpload

    EDIT 2: Here's the links to the various 3.1 firmware files (which you'll need to run PwnageTool):
    iPhone 2G
    iPhone 3G
    iPhone 3G[S]


    I recommend you read through their blog (link below) to check specifics for your device. Here's their brief details (more at their page):

    1. GOLDEN RULE: If you are using a iPhone 3G or iPhone 3G(S) with ultrasn0w and rely on ultrasn0w to obtain cellular service then you should only update your device with an .ipsw that is made with the new PwnageTool. There are no second chances with this. You need to remember that PwnageTool will provide an upgrade path to newer versions of the iPhone software in the future.
    2. Please read all parts of this post before downloading and using these tools.
    3. Read items 1, 2 and 3 again and again.
    4. At the bottom of this post are the bittorrent files for the 3.1 capable version of PwnageTool.
    5. PwnageTool will work for the iPhone 3GS assuming you have already Pwned it at 3.0 or 3.0.1
    6. PwnageTool will work for the iPod touch 2G assuming you have already Pwned it at 3.0 or 3.0.1
    7. PwnageTool WILL work for Original iPhone (1st Generation), the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3G(S) and the iPod touch (1st Generation and 2nd Generation) but NOT the iPod touch 3rd generation.
    8. For 3G and 3G(S) users who are Pwned, PwnageTool is your key to updating in the future, just remember to never install an update directly from Apple, always use an .ipsw that has been created with PwnageTool.
    The official torrent link is at ThePirateBay, we will have links up for you ASAP to download direct. Links Above

      "There is no Windows version of PwnageTool it is a Mac OS X tool only, we are not developing a Windows version of PwnageTool."

      I saw this in the Dev Team Blog... does not look good for us Windows users

      Pwnage has always been Mac only. What's the problem?

      I was able to upgrade and jb to 3.1. Couple things that I noticed:
      Appbackup crashes on start
      Carrier name (AT&T) disappeared. Restore of the backup did not correct this.
      Anybody else experience those problems?

      • You're not in restore mode properly.
      How to put iPhone into Recovery Mode
      1. First disconnect your iPhone from USB cable and power off your iPhone.
      2. Then hold the “Home” button and connect USB cable again.
      3. Keep holding the “Home” button until you see a dock cable pointing to the iTunes icon. Now you are in recovery mode.
      Restore your custom firmware
      1. Click Shift+Restore (Windows) or Option+Restore (Mac) and select your custom firmware IPSW.
      2. Wait for iTunes to restore your custom firmware. If you have any problems, downgrade your iTunes from 9.x to 8.2.0.23 or 8.2.1. I have never encountered any problems using iTunes 8.2.0.23. Very important, backup your iTunes Library.itl file.
      FYI: Anyone who generates custom firmwares with PwnageTool will remember the question "Has your iPhone been Pwned before (Does it have the pineapple logo)? If you are unsure click No".

      YES, puts your iPhone into Recovery Mode.
      NO, puts your iPhone into DFU Mode.

      The requirements for going to firmware 3.1 are:
      1. Your iPhone must be on firmware 3.0 or 3.01, no higher.
      2. Your iPhone must be jailbroken (Pwned)

      This means you should be in Recovery mode, not DFU. If you are successful in restoring your custom firmware, do NOT "Restore from backup". Set your phone up as new and then sync to get your contacts, apps, music, ringtones, calendars, etc.
      I have an ipod touch 2g 32gb running 3.0 pwned. I tried to upgrade to 3.1, but I accidentally put it in DFU mode, so tried to restore from the custom firmware (expert and simple) just for the kicks and as expected, failed. So I restored to apples 3.0, pwned that and this time put it in recovery mode. I tried to restore and still got 1600 (simple and expert. redownloaded pwnage tool on another machine and made two new ipsw. Neither worked, so I restored to 3.0 pwned that again which leads us to now.

      What should I do?

      thanks added

      so since i don't have to re-activate i can install either one and it wont matter? (hacktivated or non-hacktivated)?

      If you are already activated do not use a hactivated ipsw - it does confuse things and not work, it's one or the other.

      From MuscleNerd's Twitter. "redsn0w will be updated but no ETA...PwnageTool was higher priority since it's the only way to stay unlocked"

      Shouldn't be too much longer.

      So after I created a custom ipsw for my 3gs I updated with this custom file through itunes and now that everything is set and done my carrier does not show.

      I have full bars and my 3g shows but no carrier name. . Is this a bug that will be fixed??

      I used Fakecarrier and set it to At&t but I am a lil sketchy about things not working right.

      I guess I should just be thankful that I am jailbroken and unlocked on 3.1

      This is a well known bug. The Dev Team is aware of it. They think it's a bug with 3.1, I'm not so sure about that. My friends that don't jailbreak have their carrier logos on 3.1.

      Have someone who owns a Mac build a custom 3.1 fw for your device and use it with iTunes in Windows. The sole purpose of Pwnage is to build a custom fw. If you can get one, you don't need Pwnage. A custom fw does not update the baseband in your iPhone, so if it has been unlocked before either officially or hacked, it will remain so.

      Please be aware that you will not have your carrier's name at the task bar and may run into compatibility problems with programs you use. Check before you restore using the custom fw 3.1.

      Otherwise enjoy!

      My Battery Percentage and MakeItMine carrier stayed even after the JB.

      AptBackup restore made my Springboard crash perpetually, leaving me in safe mode. After a complete re-jailbreak, it looks like it was Cyntacts causing the crash.

      Facebook has been acting weird and my battery life is HORRIBLE, but I thong these are both 3.1 issues.

      Outside of that, everything seems good - just trying to get ally prefa back in order.
