  • Pwnage Tool 3.1.4 is out, Jailbreaks 3.1.2 and 3GS OOB
    Would you like a little Pwnage Pi[e]?

    Pwnage Tool 3.1.4 is out, jailbreaks the 3.1.2 release of the iPhone software for iPhone 2G/3G/3GS and iPod Touch 1G/2G for all you OS X folks who've been waiting. It also now jailbreaks the iPhone 3G[S] out of the box! Check out their blog post for full details.

    This release allows your baseband to remain unlocked at 3.1.2, but it does not unlock a new baseband put there by restoring to official 3.1.x. It is super important that people who need the unlock to understand they can keep it only by starting at 3.0 (or earlier) and updating solely to custom IPSWs that don’t update the baseband. For those who have been onboard the “unlock train”, simply install ultrasn0w via Cydia once you’ve restored to your custom IPSW. Don’t forget to turn off the “3G” setting in Settings->General->Network if you use T-Mobile in the U.S.A.

    Note for 3GS users not already jailbroken and stuck at 3.1.x: this version of PwnageTool has a side feature to jailbreak your 3GS. It uses a simple implementation of the usb control msg hole found by chronicdev, geohot, and our very own gray. Now that the hole is public and in use, we expect Apple to close it by the next major firmware update. That’s why 3GS users need to get their ECID hashes for 3.1.x now, and need to stay onboard the “jailbreak train” in all future updates. For more details on what this means, please see our earlier posts or ask in our comments section (moderated by the always helpful @angie and @confucious!).

    For the early adopters who ran blackra1n and are having problems with mobilesubstrate, winterboard, diskaid, or ifunbox, you can install a custom .ipsw from PwnageTool to fix these issues. That’s because all jailbroken devices accept a custom .ipsw created by PwnageTool. (However, if you ran blackra1n on a 3G or 3GS that means you updated to stock 3.1.x, and the carrier unlock is now out of reach. We’ll continue to work on a carrier unlock for the latest basebands, but the timeframe for such an unlock is unknowable.)

    Note: If you use internet tethering on a carrier that doesn’t officially support it, you’ll lose it by going to 3.1.x. Stay back at 3.0 until a hack for that is developed.

      here's my question. there have been reports of the 3.1 firmware to have an empty carrier name despite the signal working well for unlockers. my question is, does the empty carrier bug still appear in 3.1.2?

      Read my steps again; I used pwnage first with the 3.1.2 firmware and created the custom .ipsw file. Then using iTunes restored this file to the iPhone.

      Yes, I can confirm the carrier bug still there for 3.1.2.

      My sister had a JB + ulocked (ultrasn0w) 3.1 (7A342)

      And for some reason after me telling her NOT to update.. she is now stuck at 3.1.2 and gives me a 1015 error when i try to downgrade to 3.0, and now asks for a valid SIM...

      Is she SOL because of a baseband issue? or am i not doing my reading well enough. Im a happy BB owner and the brains of technology around the family and friends, and would like to help her if possible. any help would be GREAT!

When I need to tether, I really need to tether. I have a netbook I just love and sometimes can't get to wifi. I know. I can use my "Bitchin'" 3GS to do what I need to do, but I love the tethering option too much to upgrade for now. When a genius figures out a way to hack it, then I will plung NAKED into the next update. Thanks Dev Team and Geohot. YOU F@CKIN' RULE!!!!!!!

      Just download PDANET for tethering its only got a 15 day free trial but its worth the money!

      can someone send me custom firmware of 3.1.2 for my iphone 2g ?

      I thought that blackra1n would work for me but it hasnt i've tried every method on youtube with no success.. I downloaded the 3.1.2 firmware for a different source NOT iTunes. I'm not using Windows Vista. I'm using Windows XP Black..

      anyway..after pressing make it ra1n my iphone would be stuck on dfu mode and will not do anything after that.. so i either need the custom firmware or if some1 can come up with a new method that would great!

      No real probs w/my 3G 8gb. Had done the 3.1 recently, just did the same procedure for this one. Created the file, ran the restore, okay dokay. Restored from backup, then used PkgBackup (Cydia) to put all Cydia stuff back. It did, very easily. Only time I had an issue was when I put it into recovery mode incorrectly (holding sleep and home down procedure). Got the 1600 error. Reformed my ways, turned off the phone, held down the Home button, plugged the USB cord into phone, iTunes popped open and told me phone was in recovery mode, selected file and off to the races. I love how it keeps some of the Cydia stuff (mostly my status bar icons) when I do a restore from backup. Oh, and make sure, if you are on AT&T, that you use expert mode and turn off Activate before making the custom file.

      every body, I did the pwn, and jailbreaks it successfully, but i can not unlock it bc I have new 3GS 3.1. Anyway, to day I was looking on Google and search it to may be find something for unlocking, but i found this one "http://unlock-the-iphone.com" and some other website like this. I was wondering that is truth or not?
      Also does anyone can help to find out what is "ECID" and how can i register it on cydia or any tutorial for that?

      Thanks to Fuzzyband, PwnageTool, Ultrasn0w, and my bootloader version, I've now got my 3g jailbroken and unlocked on 3.1.2 after I accidentally restored and upgraded my iPhone in iTunes.

      This is just one of many web sites that lie and rely on people not being bothered to claim their money back when it doesn't work.
      Please don't waste your money or time with them.
