  • 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.

    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- 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."

      3.1.3 isn't worth it. What would it be worth anything?

      I bought a 3GS, old bootrom on 3.1.2. No SHSH on file. It had some info on it so I tried the iphone's reset in the settings menu but I get stuck in the boot apple.
      The phone DOES go into DFU mode and gets recognized by iTunes.
      I tried making a custom 3.1.2 ipsw with Pwnagetool and when I try to restore it gives me a 1600 error.
      Any ideas?
      What are my options to restore 3.1.2 with no SHSH on file? I definitely need to UNLOCK.

      Does anyone know if ultrasn0w 0.92 should work on a Pwnage'd 3G & OS 3.1.3? (.ipsw created with yesterday's Pwnage 3.1.5)

      My 3G just sits there 'Searching...' and finally gives up with 'No Service'. I've tried resetting network settings in Settings.

      As I have preserved BB 05.11.07 is there any chance of downgrading to 3.1.2?

      UltraSn0w only works with BB 04.26.08 - if you have 05.11.07 you need to use BlackSn0w which does not work with 3.13
      You should be able to restore to 3.12 and use BlackSn0w.

      Thanks for the tip - so should I do a stock (Apple) restore to 3.1.2 or a Custom 3.1.2 created with Pwnage Tool?

      Presumably applying a stock 3.1.2 will give me 05.11.07 baseband so I'll be back to being OK with blacksn0w for my unlock?

      Thanks again,

      Pwnage preserves the BB - as you are already at 05.11.07 you could do either - but the custom one is already JB so just use that then BlackSn0w.

      Reason to update-newer cooler apps require it as I wish 3.0 would work with ivideocamera so it does but will on 3.1.2 on my other phone. Too much to risk updating with no unlock being on tmobile.

      Hey everybody.

      I just bought a used iphone 3G and it came with 3.1.3 and baseband 05.12.01. Should I be ok with downgrading it to 3.1.2 and then jailbreaking and unlocking it? I'm specifically interested in the unlock. As far as I can tell I'm SOL?

      The baseband cannot be downgraded so you are stuck at 5.12.01 and will not be able to unlock for the foreseeable future.

      Hey can someone help me? I updated my iphone 3G with sn0wbreeze and now I'm at 3.1.3 and 05.11.07. The problem is when I install blacksn0w it bricks my phone (did it twice and it bricked twice). Anyone know why?
    1. confucious's Avatar

      Yes. BlackSn0w does not work with 3.13. Sn0wbreeze should not be used but was released with very little testing.
      Do you have your SHSH on cydia? If so, downgrade to 3.12

      I thought SHSH was only for 3GS?

      DFU back down to 3.1.2. SHSH is only for 3GS.. correct.
