  • 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

      What mode are you in when you are trying the restore?

      I'm in recovery - my screen is completely blank!

      That's DFU not recovery. Try in recovery.

      How? I read DFU mode is when the itunes icon and usb are showing - I got out of that mode and went into recover - I read recovery is when you don't see anything - and I got that thru Sauriks site.

      How do I get it in recover than?

      You got the two modes back to front - blank screen is DFU and itunes icon is recover.

      If it doesn't work in one it should in the other - if not what's the other error message you get?

      Anyone have a problem with having jailbroken to 3.1 and not having MMS?
      Did MMS come with 3.1.1 because I have a friend who says he is on 3.1 and has MMS? There is a package in Cydia if you had the sinfuliPhone repo that supposedly adds MMS and tethering to your iPhone 2G, 3G, 3G[s] but I don't know if I trust it, and besides I just want legitimately have it.
      Anybody know why MMS ism't working with the custom3.1 ipsw

      If your phone isn't already pwned then pwnage does not work. So, no.

      can anyone help PLEASE. I'm absolutely snapping over this.

      I know what I'm doing I think, have always used pwnage tool. My iPhone 3G is currently 3.0.1 unlocked and jailbroken. Trying to make a custom 3.1 firmware with pwnage tool 3.1.3 is impossible.

      What do you click one when selecting phone? No matter which of the 3 options I choose when I go to select firmware it says wrong firmware bundle, there doesn't seem to be any option for iPhone 3G. Pwnage tool 3.1.3 only seems to make custom firmwares for iPhone 2G, iPod Touch 2G and iPhone 3GS. What option do I choose to get it to read iPhone 3G 3.1 firmware I have downloaded. If I click iPhone it only accepts iPhone1,1 firmware, if I select iPhone 3G{s} it only wants to download 3G{s} firmware and won't accept the iPhone1,2 firmware, WTF PLEASE HELP AS I'M SNAPPING INSIDE BAD

      Why not try Pwnagetool 3.1?

      Not sure if I wanna try this!

      i haz success!

      At first this didnt work for me. I restored through itunes to 3.1, dled the firmware and pwnage tool 3 and built a custom restore ipsw in expert mode.

      recieved error 1600 several times.

      To get the jailbreak to work, I restored using option+restore and selected the 3.1firmware i downloaded from modmyi, NOT the custom one. After selecting expert mode in pwnage tool, deselecting everything to do with bootneuter and unlock (legit ATT customer), pwnagetool prompted me to put it in DFU restore mode, then proceeded to jailbreak the device.

      to make a long story short, if you're still having issues with some error code:
      1. option+restore with firmware 3.1 dled from modmyi (the stock file, NOT the custom)
      2. restore with custom firmware built with pwnagetool using itunes

      i'm not sure if restoring through the itunes dl of firmware 3.1 had anything to do with the issues, but i did it this way and my iphone works perfect: no issues with disapearing carrier issues or crashing winterboard etc.

      hope this helps someone!!!

      Tried this, pwnage tool 3.1 and 3.1.2 will only ever look for 3gs firmware, whenever I select 3g firmware it says wrong type, yet the 3g firmware is recognised by redsnow, WTF is going on here, some one has to have some idea.

      Pwnage tool only has 3 options right?

      iPhone
      iPod Touch 2G
      iPhone 3G{s}

      What do you click on to make iPhone 3G firmware, if you click on the 3Gs firmware it only ever looks for 3Gs firmware not 3G, been trying for a week now WTF

      When I choose the 3GS icon it finds both the 3G firmware (1,2) and the 3GS firmware (2,1). Not sure what's going on with yours. Maybe the new pwnagetool version coming out tonight will work better for you.

      You're giving some very bad advise. Everyone who wants to keep their unlock status of their iPhone 3G and 3GS, should never update or restore using a STOCK 3.1 firmware in iTunes. This will update the baseband to 05.11.07. This baseband is not unlockable by the iPhone 3G(s). People with iPhone 3G(s) need to keep their baseband at 04.26.08 to maintain their unlocked status for unofficial carriers like T-Mobile.

      jailbait28 you situation is different. You have a 1st generation iPhone. You will always be able to unlock your baseband. The reason you received the 1600 error was because you were running firmware 1.1.4. You needed to first restore a stock 3.0 firmware (with BB 4.26.08), jailbreak with redsn0w and then you can restore a custom 3.1 firmware in iTunes.

      The requirements for restoring a custom 3.1 firmware are:

      1) Must be at firmware 3.0 or 3.0.1 with baseband 04.26.08
      2) You must be jailbroken.
      3) Put your iPhone into Recovery mode, not DFU.

      Nothing personal. Just setting the record straight.

      With 3.0, Redsn0w did the clever jailbreak with an .ipsw that was downloaded from the Net. Is it the same principle with 3.1? I'd be interested to know why a Windows version isn't available yet.

      I have to say though, 3.0 is fantastic and I owe the Dev Team a huge thank you for letting me escape 02 and use T-Mobile (Hello from UK) - I'm trying not to take their efforts for granted and I'm being patient. A bit patient.
