  • [ 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.

      It's completely different on factory unlocked phones as they don't have a lot of restrictions now placed on locked phones.

      i like a big dummy upgraded my iphone (original 2gen = 1gen . . non 3g) to 3.1

      BIG DEAL right . . I dont hav a mac machine and was basically stuck bc i dont know anyone with one either and seem like my phone was doomed well I found a 3.1 restored firmware (the one you have to download to jailbreak your iphone) and restored my iphone after putting in DFU mode in tunes . .

      after itunes didnt recognize my sim . . (tmo user) I put in DFU mode again and retored to a custom 3.0 firmware . . it went through and then I used redsn0w win0.8 and jailbroke it and unlocked and back safe again. .

      maybe this nothing special but I couldnt find any info about downgrading from 3.1 or maybe everyone knows this but in case im not the only retard i thought I share this hoping it can hep someone who did the same thing . .

      aha. well, i never heard that it's completely different on factory unlocked phones, besides the baseband obviously. what other restrictions are there on locked phones?
      i'm not new to this and i just thought i let somebody know.
      and since posts on the dev-team blog get easily overlooked 'cause it's incredibly crowded, i decided to post here.
      i personally don't think it's a bug in pwnagetool, but if my information is not of any interest than i'm sorry.

      Also, Winterboard is currently not working (it crashes the springboard).

      My 2G has the logo, my 3G does not.

      Pwnage Tool took about 30 minutes to find my IPSW. Played around with the Cydia Settings, trying to add some packages, but it ended up becoming unresponsive.

      Time to wait another 30 minutes. Will just leave everything the way it's supposed to be this time.

      ok, after reading through the 12 pages of this thread I havent really found what I'm looking for:

      would installing one of these custom FW's through iTunes jailbreak my phone?
      does it install cydia?

      the reason I ask is because I'm running on nothing but Windows machines so I can't use pwnage tool

      yeah but arent there problems with the jailbreak like no network or winterboard crashing?

      and 1 more question srry with the custom firmwares can we just go into itunes and restore it there or does it need to be in DFU mode?

      Anybody fancy pulling the latest carrier bundles from the iPhone and PMing them to me? I have a 3GS so can't do it myself.

      Cheers

      Question: Do we HAVE to alt+click on Restore, or can we just use Update? Don't feel like reinstalling everything.

      Winterboard issues were fixed as of this morning with a mobile substrate update by Saurik

      It is recommended to do a restore....if you care about your phone you will restore. It will save you a lot of hassles later on. A lot more than the small task of syncing your information again

      True. I'll give a "Update" a try and see how that goes. Everything is backed up just in case. Just takes a few hours to get everything back on there, then another couple of hours getting everything modded and set up the way I like it.

      Maybe a dumb question, but I want to get a 2G for my Dad and I'm wondering if the jailbreak and unlock will allow MMS by default? I'm almost positive his AT&T account has it on there I was just wondering if it'll work straightaway.
