  • 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.

      No because it doesn't run on iOS. And not to be rude but you guys seriously need to read. It doesn't mention anywhere that the first gen apple tv is supported and it also is not an A4 device.

      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?

      no. 5.14.02 unlock is coming after 4.2. pwnagetool isn't an unlock, it just jailbreaks and preserves your current baseband if you are already unlocked.

      it will not unlock the device, when you create the firmware just make sure that you keep the "activate device" option checked and once built and restored you can install ultrasn0w from cydia to unlock

      You need a micro-USB. To jailbreak open pwnage and follow the on screen instructions. To restore plug into iTunes and hit "restore".

      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
      pwnage is not a jailbreak like jailbreakme.com. You create a .IPSW file that can be restored to the phone. This preserves the baseband (if thats important). It also means you need to then resync you iphone to reload all the stuff lost when you load the .ipsw.

      Ok, so the only reason to use pwnage is if you already have a unlocked baseband and what to keep it that way but still move to 4.1

      Those on AT&T need not use pwnage to jailbreak. Use one of the other methods.

      Does anyone have any other reason why anyone should preserve baseband?

      Figured it out. Obviously I knew I needed the cable but when I called Apple to ask them about it they were trying to lie to me about the ports abilities; telling me that it's only for Apple Technicians meanwhile I went to Radio Shack and dropped $20.00 on a cable that Apple would of wanted $50.00 for if they allowed you to purchase it. Needless to say once I got the correct cable, that is Micro USB to USB, then there are no problems jailbreaking. Funny how Apple told me it wasn't for the owners purpose meanwhile when I plugged it in and followed steps it not only worked perfectly but iTunes knew exactly what it was and had a picture of it and everything. Apple TV 2 with the new image popped up right where your iPhone would normally. Only question I have for anyone who's done this yet but am I suppose to be able to view/launch Cydia from the Apple TV 2 console? I SSHed into the device and verified that Cydia.app was under the applications, along with Lowtide... Apple TV 2's interface layout. How to see quick progress with this it really is a solid device to own and very reasonably priced at $99.99 for once Apple isn't being unreasonably priced. About to experiment with Lowtide with my iPhone and iPad.

      This is great news! My 3GS is still on 3.1.2, so I think it's time to update.

      Also my iPad is still on 3.2, but might update to fix the Wi-Fi issues.

      Even though I'm on AT&T, I still want the ability to use it unlocked when I travel. Just put a prepaid SIM of the country's local GSM carrier, and I don't have to pay for AT&T's ridiculous roaming fees.
