  • Dev-Team Releases PwnageTool 3.1.5 for Mac OS X
    Be Smart. If you make a mistake, you may lose your unlocking ability, possibly forever. There are NO new features in 3.1.3. Chances are, if you update, you will loose unlock. There is NO Installation of Rock with PwnageTool . More than likely there will NOT be any further development on iPhone 3GS Jailbreaking for 3.1.3 until iPhone OS 4.0 or something of value is released. If you own a 3G or a 2G, you may use RedSn0w, however, there is no auto installation of Rock.

    No matter what tool comes out right now for iPhone OS 3.1.3, 3GS users need to stay away regardless of wether you unlock unless you have your ďSHSH hashesĒ saved via Cydia.

    This article is for informational purposes only! Share your thoughts and comments as usual.


    If you use blacksn0w on baseband 05.11.07, you need to stay at 3.1.2.

    As a pre-game SuperBowl gift, the Dev Team has released PwnageTool 3.1.5, *compatible with OS 3.1.3. Which again, like we've said many times, is a useless update. There is no need to update unless you absolutely have to. PwnageTool 3.1.5 will PRESERVE your jailbreak and ultrasn0w unlock. If you currently use the blacksn0w unlock on baseband 05.11.07, you NEED to stay at 3.1.2.

    So what's the deal? How does PwnageTool work with 3.1.3?

    If you've used PwnageTool before, this is nothing new. This tool will create a custom 3.1.3 IPSW Firmware bundle in which you can use on the iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS (early bootrom), iPod touch 1G, and iPod touch 2G (early bootrom). What is a bootrom you say? Well, if you don't know the answer to that is, chances are you need to learn more about jailbreaking before you attempt anything. Browse our forums as there are plenty of discussions about bootroms.

    From the Dev Team:
    If you have an iPhone 3GS, PwnageTool works if youíre currently at version 3.1.2 or below (down to 3.0). You donít need to be already jailbroken ó PwnageTool will ask you if youíre jailbroken after youíve created the IPSW. Donít use PwnageTool on the iPhone 3GS if youíre at 3.1.3, it just wonít work. Downgrade to 3.1.2 using the methods described here. If you canít downgrade because you donít have your 3GS 3.1.2 hashes on file with Cydia, youíll need to sit out the 3.1.3 jailbreak.

    We arenít revealing any new exploits to Apple with this jailbreak. Everything here has been used before, itís just a straightforward port of Pwnage2 and 24Kpwn to the new firmware. Itís possible the new firmware was released largely to flush out new exploits before the next big release. We wonít be biting.
    Ok so now that you've read that quote. Read it again. For your good and the good of what the Dev-Team brings to the community. Understand that this firmware, 3.1.3., is just a dancing game Apple wants us to do, and there will NOT be much more development on this firmware package. It's important that the community is able to reciprocate to the updates Apple does to prevent jailbreaking, and in order to do so, the developers and users must maintain some patience, for in the end it will only benefit us when a newer, more feature loaded update comes out from apple.

    MMi MEMBER TIP from SouthernCountry:
    "I'm fairly new to the forum and the JB world. I followed the instructions to a T and my phone is successfully up and running again. However I did have 1 problem. It may have just been me but I believe a program installed with snow caused anything hardware that communicated outside the computer (USB, WIFI, LAN, etc) to stop working. It took a lot of troubleshooting and I found this program called libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.12.1. It appears to have downloaded with snow but after I uninstalled it and restarted my computer everything begin to run normal again. Had me confused but I thought I would inform you guys just in case this happens to someone else."

      tips?
      Stay at 3.12!

      thats what i thought. well guess im have to wait.

      for iphone 3gs old boot rom, that use custom fireware i would recomend ultrasnow. blacksnow does not work on 3.1.3 only ultrasnow will. so if your on 3.1.3 with 5.11 use ultrasnow.

      and if your iphone 3gs with new bootrom like me, sit tight. i wouldnt do anything. stay on 3.1.2 untill the next big update/jailbreak.

      my 3.1.2 is in need of a restore, so im just going to restore back to 3.1.2. and jailbreak via redsnow...hee hee

      RedSn0w updates your BB so you can't unlock. It is JB only.

      I certainly would recommend this.

      Great news! But is it really worth upgrading from 3.1.2? I dont want to have to start all over, and the features don't really seem that worthy of upgrading for.

      just to clarify... i have a 3gs (early bootrom) on 3.1.2 on 4.26 baseband. this pwnagetool release will preserve the baseband with a custom firmware so i can unlock with ultrasnow, correct?

Will I be able to keep all my Cydia apz?" even though it was CLEARLY stated just about everywhere that 3.1.3 added no new features and was primarily designed to force the Dev Team to use another exploit to jailbreak the firmware. Well now the Dev Team has to clean up the mess to appease all the idiots who rushed to update. Come on guys, we've been playing this cat-and-mouse game with Apple for two and a half years running now. I can't believe there are still people who rush to update their jailbroken devices, even when they are explicitly warned not to do so, every time Apple releases a new firmware. Kudos to the Dev Team for refusing use a new exploit on this firmware though.

      I just hope some other hacker doesn't give in to all the whining that is likely to follow this release from 3GS users who are now stuck on 3.1.3 and release a jailbreak using a new exploit. It would be a pity if we can't jailbreak 4.0 as a result!

      Hopefully, those who rushed to upgrade and got stuck will learn something from this experience. Patience is the greatest virtue of any jailbreaker.

      read all warnings didnt update. get iphone this morning and its in recovery mode ??? wtf. ask wife if she touched my phone, yeah she said (btw she has no idea what so friggen ever about phones or computers) yes she updated it ....WHY or friggen WHY did you touch it.

      Nothing to report for the 05.12.01 baseband folks eh? Had one of my kids accidentally updated their 3G phone. Got it to go back to 3.1.2 the day it happened but cannot downgrade the baseband. Looks like I have to retire this phone until 4.0 then correct?

      I'm still on 3.0.1, 4.26.08 (3G), unlocked, T-Mobile USA, pwn'd w/Pwnage. Never updated to 3.1.2 due to several issues that surfaced last year. IE: network carrier signing, broken tethering, and possibly others. I assume they've been addressed and no longer an issue (I hope).

      Is it time for me to upgrade? ... some apps are requiring 3.1.2.

      Do/could I loose anything by going from 3.0.1 to 3.1.2 (or 3.1.3) ?

      already used sn0wbreeze to do this. but it looks like dev team like always needed a little push for them to release theirs. so in that regards i guess it was good chronic devs released theirs
