  • [ HOW TO ] Jailbreak Using Pwnage Tool on 3.1 for Mac
    PLEASE TAKE HEED OF THIS INFO FROM THE DEV TEAM:

    This release starts with PwnageTool 3.1 for Mac OS X - this application supports the iPhone 1st Generation (2G), the iPhone 3G and the iPod touch 1G. NB: THIS DOES NOT SUPPORT THE 3GS OR 2G/3G IPOD TOUCH. redsn0w for Mac OS X and Windows will follow sometime in the near future, please don’t bug us about it - we’ll release when we have something ready.
    • GOLDEN RULE: If you are using a 3G iPhone with ultrasn0w and rely on ultrasn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should only upgrade to 3.1 with a PwnageTool created .ipsw. - Stay away from Apple’s direct updates as described here and here please get up to speed on the whole subject by reading the information contained in these posts.
    • If you have an original iPhone (1st generation) then 3.1 unlock works with this PwnageTool release. iPhone 3G users upgrading to 3.1 will need to continue using ultrasn0w with a PwnageTool created 3.1 .ipsw
    • Please read all parts of this post before downloading and using these tools.
    • Read items 1, 2 and 3 again and again.
    • This app is suitable for the recent 3.1 release.
    • This version of PwnageTool will NOT work for the iPhone 3GS.
    • PwnageTool WILL work for Original iPhone (1st Generation), Original iPod touch (1st Generation) and the iPhone 3G.
    1. Download PWNage tool
    2. Download the original 3.1 ipsw
    3. Open PWNage tool
    4. Select your model of phone

    5. Click Next
    6. PWNage will search for the 3.1 ipsw

    7. Select the firmware and Click Next

    8. Click Yes to creat the firmware

    9. It will ask you if your phone activates through itunes. If you are hacktivating your phone select No. If you have an authorized carrier select yes.

    10. It will now begin to build the custom ipsw

    11. You will be prompted to enter your password. Enter it to continue building the ipsw.


    12. You will then be asked if you iPhone has been Pwwned before...Select No


    13. You will then be prompted to plug in your phone.

    Follow the on screen instructions....









    14. Open iTunes

    15. iTunes will detect your phone in recovery mode. Click OK.

    16. Hold the Option button on your keyboard and click Restore in iTunes

    17. Then browse to the custom ipsw you just made.

    18. Select it and press Choose.
    19. iTunes will begin to restor your iPhone with the custom ipsw


    20. When it is finished you will see this message


    From The Dev-Team:
    Update : Unlocked users on the 3G will probably notice that the name and/or logo of their carrier is missing, but they still have full bars and a signal. So far this seems to be purely a cosmetic issue and it doesn’t impact your signal or coverage. We hope to have this issue “fixed” when we release the 3GS compatible version of PwnageTool. This is very likely tied to Update #3…

    Update : As of 3.1, the *.ipcc carrier bundles are signed, and you can no longer force tethering capability simply by crafting your own bundle. The good news is this obstacle can probably be overcome by virtue of the jailbreak. But so far that extra hack is not part of the PwnageTool custom IPSW creation.

      2.28 BB? I didn't think 3.x talked to 2.28? You can YellowSn0w!

      Wow, never noticed it before. Thanks!

      I didn't need to do the DFU, Pwnage just made the custom file and asked close and to restore. I opened itunes restored, synced a backup and everything is great. Just re-installed iblacklist via cydia, again no problems. It's nice to be able to change the apps around via itunes, even the jailbreak apps.

      For the record i've stop using winterboard, i just feel it makes the iphone less responsive.

      Are you not missing out on any features from the newer basebands?

      The problem with cydia is as soon as you add a repo they all turn up.

      So, if you have no repos showing up then add one and they will show up and it'll work like it should.

      I didn't get to read through all the posts but I have several questions. I currently have a 2g 8gig iPhone.

      1. Is it worth it to upgrade to 3.1?
      2. I currently have MMS running successfully, will I have to redo the whole process getting it back? What are the chances of it working?
      3. Will I lose my apps? Aptbackup & Appbackup are must haves at this point?
      4. When iTunes loads, will it be able to sync everything properly? I've read somewhere that you must choose new iPhone?

      Thanks in advance. I have 3.0 and I'm pretty comfortable with it at the moment. Just want to hear some input if it's worth it to upgrade.

      Jailbroke worked fine until I used apt backup. Got all my programs on it but the springboard kept crashing...need to start over.

      Same thing happened to me when I used PKG Backup. We really need a list of confirmed working jailbroken apps.

      videorecorder3 works for me

      OK, that makes me feel better, at least it's not me. Hope it's not apps I like that are the problem. I had so many apps on my phone.

      Hi All,

      About Winterboard on 3.1, it works (part of it) if you rename the "UIImages" folder under the theme you are using winterboard will run and apply the theme. I hope it helps.

      Rename it to what? I thought people would get constant safe mode with WinterBoard.

      Rename it to anything else so it does not load during the theme loading.

      Just checked Saurik twitter. He wrote

      MobileSubstrate 0.9.3043-1 fixes the issues some extensions (like WinterBoard) are having with the new dyld "shared cache" in iPhone OS 3.1.



      Update: Winterboard is working for me with themes I SSHing to my phone. YAY! Thanks Jay!

      But 5 mins ago:
      (The Cydia website is down for an hour or so due to extreme database load caused by a change I am making to the SHSH schema for iPod3,1.)

      All the JB apps I use (apart from Snapture) work fine on 3.1 but restoring them from Pkgbackup caused all my App store apps to crash.

      Angie restored hers and it kept crashing her springboard but manually restoring all her apps worked fine.

      As has been mentioned Winterboard does work yet, cycorder doesn't either - why these are included in the Pawnage Tool up-date if they aren't 3.1 compatible yet I don't know.

      Give it a few weeks and I'm sure 3.1 (or 3.1.1 by then) will offer me more of the stuff I want, but at the moment it's too early days for it all to work.
      Give it a few weeks? More like few days (or many many many hours for that matter)

      Saurik already fixed Winterboard!

      The man delivers non stop. Kudos!

      It's not worth the update if its working nicely.

      I just updated my 3G and I wish I didnt It was fine and I lost a few things in the update.

      As for you, I'll answer 1 at a time
      1, nope.
      2, Yes you will have to redo all the settings again.
      3, You will only loose your Cydia apps. The others are still in iTunes and will sync when you patch the phone like usual.
      4, Yes it does sync again. You restore to install the firmware then it restores everything back to the way it was.

      I have a 2G 8GB iPhone and I'm gonna leave it at 3.01 as its in no hurry to update as its working fine the way it is. There really isnt anything new that it needs an update.
