  • Pwnage Tool 4.1 Released, Jailbreaks Apple TV


    We've been waiting a bit now for Pwnage Tool to be updated to support 4.x devices, and today's release of Pwnage Tool 4.1 finally gets us there. The main advantage of Pwnage Tool over the limera1n and greenpois0n recent jailbreaks (which actually use the same exploit) is for unlockers. Pwnage Tool's functionality of updating to a pre-jailbroken firmware preserves the baseband you were on (your cellular modem, the part of the phone actually being "unlocked") so your ultrasn0w unlock is preserved. For new 4.1 users jailbreaking for the first time, ultrasn0w does not yet support the 02.10.04 baseband on iPhone 4 (check yours in Settings > General > About > Modem Firmware).

    Mentioned a few days ago as a tool to get "untethered jailbreaks on all future A4 firmwares" (which they don't clarify today, just mention again in the iPhone Dev Team release post), this release jailbreaks the following devices:
    • AppleTV 2G
    • iPad (firmware 3.2.2)
    • iPod touch 4G
    • iPod touch 3G
    • iPhone4
    • iPhone 3GS
    • iPhone 3G

    As always, Pwnage Tool is a Mac only software.

    Here's download links (more to come):

    Megaupload
    Rapidshare

    Apple TV jailbreaking is in babyland right now - exciting, just like when the community first started building apps for the iPhone long before an SDK was even announced. The Dev Team includes this note to all Apple TV jailbreakers:

    AppleTV 2G users: Welcome to the JB family! Right now, about all you can do is command-line stuff via ssh. You also have afc2 available, so you can use tools like ifunbox to move files around. These are the *very* early days of AppleTV 2G jailbreaking, so it’ll take some time for JB app developers to come up with methods to use your AppleTV 2G from the remote, versus the command line. PS: Your ssh password is “alpine”…please change it when you can
    We'll get a full tutorial up soon, but it's pretty simple - download, open, and follow the instructions in the app.

    If you've already jailbroken with either greenpois0n or limera1n, you will gain nothing by jailbreaking again with Pwnage Tool, so don't bother yourself.

      that happened to a friend of mines iphone 3G - we couldnt do a complete restore, the progress bar would be almost finished and it wouldnt complete.
      Somehow the whole system of the phone got corrupted, it was under warranty so he exchanged it at the apple store..

      your phone might be down for the count..

      Thanks for your response.
      Do I need to wait for Apple to release 4.2 and then unlock will come out.

      Or ultrasnow is going to be updated to unlock the software version 4.0.2 and 4.1

      What is the value of this tool?

      Is preserving the baseband still important?

      I have not moved to 4.1 as I am just not sure which JB is appropriate. I do not need to unlock.

      Any suggestions?

      Worked nicely on my 3gs old bootrom. I tried restoring it on my pc after i made it on my mac, but kept giving me error. The dfu mode in the pwangetool is different than your average dfu.

      I think the next unlock is after 4.2.

      This is what Musclenerd says on his twitter,

      "@puthywong the SIM had moved onto the next phone by the time I snapped that Next unlock won't be before public 4.2"

      If you do not need an unlock then you can use any of the three methods.

      Please keep in mind, if you intend on selling your iPhone at a later date, it is best to keep the baseband as low as possible in order to keep the phone unlockable and thus increase it's value. If you want to do that then use Pwnage Tool (there's another way for some devices, but let's keep it simple).

      I have iphone 3g on 3.1 so the baseband is pretty old. If i use Pwnage does it prevent from upgrading baseband so i coud use ultrasn0w now?

      I have iphone 3G 16gb
      Jailbroken with blackrain/Unlocked with Snow
      Running 3.1.2 (7D11)
      Baseband 05.11.07

      If I wanted to upgrade to 4.1 and still keep my unlock (I do have my SHSH Blobs backed up in Cydia)..What steps do I have to take? update first to 4.1 or jailbreak with Pwnage Tool and then update?

      I bought an iPhone 4 from BestBuy in mid September. It was lying in its box until now, so I don't know which firmware it is loaded with and hence, its baseband version.
      I read contradictory comments on the issue so I am a bit confused.

      If it's a 4.0.2 OTB, would Pwnage 4.1 prevent iOS 4.1 from updating the baseband, so that I could use ultrasn0w for an unlock?

      If it's a 4.1 OTB, I know I have to wait for the unlock. Just being optimistic.

      Thanks,

      I'm a little confused.
      I have iphone 4
      firmware 4.0
      modem firmware 01.59.00

      I jailbroke it from jailbreakme.com when the first jailbreak was released.
      I used ultrasnow to unlock the phone.

      Can now update to 4.1 and then use pwnage tool to jailbreak and use ultrasnow to unlock or I still have to wait for ultrasnow to be upgraded for 4.1 or 4.2(if they choose to wait for 4.2)

      Thanks
