  • 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.

Meaning your either stuck permanently with a locked phone or have to wait for an unlock to be figured out.
      thanks for the reply. yea I'm still on 3.0 and haven't updated the baseband, so i will do it. one question, when I google for the custom 3.1.2 for 3gs, i see 2 options one for unlocked and one for locked. Do i have to make sure i download the unlocked or does it not really matter?

      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!

      thanx for the confirmation dude!
      now my question is...can i fix this without resorting to an app like MakeItMine? I found this post that has such a fix by dragging a file into /private/var/mobile/Library/carrier bundle.bundle:

      iPhone 3.1 carrier logo fix??

      does it work for 3.1.2? thanx!

      I went from 3.0.1jb to 3.1jb and my battery life blows. Started the day off at 100%, streamed some last.fm for 10 minutes, browsed the web for a couple of minutes, used the phone for 2 minutes and now I'm down to 65%. Just launched Cydia and while it was reloading went from 65% to 62%. If 3.1.2 doesn't fix that, I'll just go back to 3.0.1

      Yes, I can confirm the carrier bug still there for 3.1.2.
      Is there a way to correct this? I have a 3GS (my phone) and a 3G (wife's phone) on 3.2.1 now, jailbroken and unlocked. Both phones are missing the carrier name. They are both working fine though.

      Hey guys, quick question. I just downloaded the pwnage tool 3.1.4 and the iPhone1,2 3.1.2 ipsw. I open the pwnage tool and where it usually shows the iPhone, iPod, and iPhone 3G it now shows the same as before but instead of the iPhone 3G, it shows the 3G(S). I clicked iPhone and it couldn't find my ipsw but when I clicked on iPhone 3G(S) it found the iPhone 1,2 ipsw so I just went with it. It's currently packaging but I want to make sure it's going to be safe on my iPhone 3G.

      Ok, So I have a few questions. Hope people will bear with me and not just use iphone geek speak. I have the 16gb iphone 3gs, Jb on 3.0.1 and my ECID is saved in cydia. I want to jb to 3.1.2 and I am on windows. If I have access to a Mac, should I just run the jb on the mac and be done with it. Or should I "acquire" a custom ispw? Please help anyone.

      I'm assuming you are 3.1 (because you mentioned the sleep issue). If you updated to 3.1 via iTunes (which upgraded your baseband) you can jailbreak but NOT unlock. If you used a 3.1 custom firmware to restore in iTunes, and retained your old baseband, you can restore the custom 3.1.2 (they are available, just search) and then unlock your phone.

      I'd say it might be quicker to just download the 3.1.2 custom firmware. I got home tonight, downloaded it from TPB, restored, then restored from backup and then ran AptBackup and in about 30 minutes I was back in business with 3.1.2 with all my programs.

      You downloaded the wrong firmware. For the 3G it needs to be 1,2...not 1,1 or 2,1.

      Just wanted to post my "good luck".

      Previously my iPhone 3G was redsn0w jailbroken 3.0 w/ tethering enabled via editted mobile config with AT&T carrier file 5.0 to manually enable MMS.

      Took the 3.1.2 leap using Pnwage Tool 3.1.4 before I realized it said tethering was broken. Well, did the jailbreak, restored and I still have tethering! MMS work too BTW. When I restored it seems to have put my editted mobile config back in and I did notice I have AT&T carrier version 5.5 now as well which iTunes does nags me to update (to 5.6 I'm assuming).

      edit: spoke too soon

      The "Internet Tethering" toggle in the network settings was still there and I could toggle it back and forth. But I just enabled it and plugged in my iPhone via USB and poof...the tethering toggle vanished Oh well, it's not something I really needed, but was useful "just in case".
