  • 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.

      My 3GS is currently jb on 3.0 & my ECID hash is captured. If I wait too long (say FW 3.2 came out) and never pwn'ed to 3.1.2 to get the 3.1.2 ECID, will that mean I might never be able to upgrade to a jb version of 3.1.2 because I don't want the newer 3.2?

      pdanet works great for either wireless or usb tethering and doesnt require that carrier settings hack from 3.0-3.01..And everyone thats saying blackra1n was first and alot better. Unfortunately it didnt work for alot of 3g users and it upgrades your baseband.

      The fix i had for that when trying to do this on win 7 was posted by someone else but it worked. Jailbroke on 3.01 then installing the custom 3.1 ispw in iTunes 8.2. I got that error untill i was upgrading from jb 3.01 to custom jb 3.1 ispw in iTunes 8.2, 9.0+ never worked for me. Im going to try the same thing from jb 3.1 to jb 3.1.2 after it downloads and let you know

      No, as long as you are jailbroken you will always be able to load custom firmwares onto your phone. Since your ECID is saved on 3.0, you will always be able to restore to 3.0 and jailbreak as long as you have taken the steps necessary to communicate with Sauriks server,

      Got the 1600 error in iTunes 8.2, using a 8gb 3g in dfu twice. It gave me the error before even taking my phone out of dfu. So i rebooted my phone and let iTunes put it in recovery and it went through the first time.

      Anybody know why Pwnage tool would be semi-freezing after I click on the iPhone 3G(S) picture? I clicked Expert Mode (hate that pineapple) and it looks for the .ipsw file which it never finds (its in the iTunes folder and I copied it to the desktop and put Pwnage in the same folder as the .ipsw) and it gets stuck there. When I press the buttons they click but don't do anything, I end up having to force quit. I've tried with and without iTunes running.

      I never had that happen, but it would freeze when I would try to search apps from the bigboss or modmy repo during the package building part. I just restarted my macbook and quit trying to add other files from those repos.

      i'm currently on a 3.0 redsn0w jailbreak on my iPhone 3G....i'm on windows XP and so i have some questions:

      1) do i need to update my iTunes to 9.0+ to update to 3.1.2 firmware?

      2) should i put my phone into DFU mode and then shift+click restore and select the ipsw directly from apple to restore to 3.1.2? OR (goto #3)

      3) should i put my phone into DFU mode and then shift+click restore and select a custom jailbroken ipsw to restore to 3.1.2?

      4) if i use a custom ipsw, do i setup as new device when its done?

      5) which custom firmware should i use? one with a 5xx MB partition, a 7xx MB partition, or a 1GB partition? and why?

      6) does everything work w/the custom ipsw for 3.1.2 ie winterboard, aptbackup, springback, sbsettings, etc etc?

      7) since i'm on official AT&T carrier...does it matter if i update the baseband? if i restore to a custom ipsw that doesn't have the baseband updated will my cell phone reception/signal be worse than if i'd have updated it to the most current?

      No, the pwnage will do that
      2) should i put my phone into DFU mode and then shift+click restore and select the ipsw directly from apple to restore to 3.1.2? OR (goto #3)
      go to number 3

      3) should i put my phone into DFU mode and then shift+click restore and select a custom jailbroken ipsw to restore to 3.1.2?
      shouldn't have to

      4) if i use a custom ipsw, do i setup as new device when its done?
      not necessary but you can

      5) which custom firmware should i use? one with a 5xx MB partition, a 7xx MB partition, or a 1GB partition? and why?
      Your choice
      6) does everything work w/the custom ipsw for 3.1.2 ie winterboard, aptbackup, springback, sbsettings, etc etc?
