  • 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.

      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?
      you dont need to do anything apart from installing the latest itunes and have the cstomer firmware, contact ptPalmer, he will send u the link, once u download it, all u have to do is hold shift key and select the custom firmware which you have downloaded from ptPalmer. this will enable u to keep u old baseband that was running on 3.0, if u use at&t than you might just use blackra1n, but u will lose u unlock, after installing it you will see cydia already installed, works for me, look like mac users are still having problems where by windows user dont have windows tools install it, is kind of cool

      I'm using a mac and it worked perfectly. I've created my custom firmware using pwnage 3.1.4, jalbroke my phone without problems. Macs rule! that's why the devs uses it.

      Just jail broke and unlocked my 3GS running 3.1.2. So far so good. My only question is what happened to the carrier name (I am on T-mobile). Any clues?

      If you are on BB 04.26.08 pwnage 3.14 will JB and hactivate your phone while preserving your BB so you can still use UltraSn0w.
      If you are on Windows you can restore to a custom ipsw made on a Mac and restore a backup made in 3.xx from iTunes. pkgbackup also seems to work fine (unlike from 3.01 to 3.11)

      If anyone has a problem with their BroadBand they should consider themselves lucky they aren't with Virgin in the UK - They came to upgrade mine yesterday. Now I have none. Am using a dongle and getting speeds of less than 1.5Mb and half the sites I try to access direct me to a 'you must activate your modem.

      Not at all happy with Virgin and their CS

      but what im confused about...is some people say to update to latest iTunes version and others say keep my 8.2 version. And if i'm already jailbroken on 3.0 and just shift click restore to the custom one....well won't that leave a bunch of crap still on my phone if i dont put it into DFU mode? or do i put it into DFU mode so the phone is wiped completely clean of everything THEN shift click restore to the custom ipsw?

      as for the root partition size....does it really matter which i use? will it effect the phone's performance depending which one i go with and if so which one is best?

      and lastly...since im on AT&T and dont care about unlocking...will my cell phone reception/signal be any better by updating the baseband or keeping it at 4.26.08 like it is currently? i will never use my phone w/T-Mobile or any other provider...soooo what is best to do in my situation for best cell phone reception?

      Since i have upgraded to 3.1.2 firmware my signal strengh has improved, i used to get 1 bar now i get 2-3 bars.

      the whole point u upgrading it is that you can drag and drop you apps with in itunes, only with the latest itunes and firmware. if you dont care about unlock just go to blackra1n and run it, i would run custom firmware if i need my ecid or to keep my unlock,

      dfu mode makes no difference if u use custom firmware , u will lose u apps and all you settings you may have on your phone, backup firts,

      we use dfu mode only when we wanted to use redsb0w to allow us the jailbreak

      Why dont you try this guide:[GUIDE] Jailbreak 3.1 with PwnageTool 3.1.3

      That other guide is incomplete and full of spam

      LOL It has nothing to do with Macs being "easier to hack." They just need to get a Windows coder and they'll release a Windows version.

      So I've never used Pwnage to JB my iPhone 3G. I used Redsnow last for 3.0.1.

      I succesfully used Pwnage to get 3.1.2 but just ran into one issue. I noticed that the AT&T logo has gone missing, and I don't care, but I had a really nice logo that I replaced it with.

      Any way I can get that custom logo back into place? I reinstalled it the way I've always done, but no luck. I wasn't sure if the fact that Pwnage loses the original logo, that it would affect custom logos as well.

      Thanks!!!

      Blackra1n is a jailbreak tool. It won't unlock your phone.

      Jailbreak opens file system so you can install Cydia and other 3 party apps.

      Unlock allows your iphone to be used on other carriers. ie. use a US AT&T iphone on a T-mobile.

      The two are different.

      From what I have read there is no unlock for 3.1.2 yet.

      If you havent been upgrading your baseband since like 3.0 you can unlock on 3.1.2. Every geniune apple update you do on the phone or any updates that dont prevent the baseband from updating will update it. Meaning your either stuck permanently with a locked phone or have to wait for an unlock to be figured out.

      Big thanks again to the dev team for keeping us updated with Apple's latest firmwares for our iPhones.

      ***I was on 3.1.0 unlocked using ultrasn0w and had the stupid sleeping bug... very annoying!!!***

      1. Downloaded Pwnagetool & firmware 3.1.2 for iphone 3G
      2. Ran PwnageTool and selected iPhone 3G(S)
      3. Created custom .IPSW file (don't require to put the phone in DTF mode)
      4. Holded option + clicked on restore within iTunes and selected created custom .ipsw file
      5. Once restored completed, disabled 3G & ran Cydia
      6. Installed ultrasn0w again, restarted phone and voila! 3.1.2 UNLOCKED!
