  • [ 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.

      I sincerely apologize Mr. Melech. I will never ever post anything that isn't pro modmyi.com again. I regret posting a site that I felt was a better source for firmware downloads because of the layout and speed of download. I further understand that you do not approve of any posts that don't shed positive light on yourself or modmyi.com.

      I have an original iPhone and have updated using modmyi twice before. I am doing fine for the next update, except I cannot find the file *the original 3.1 ipsw* I'd really appreciate your help. Modmyi has been such an awesome site.
      thanks for your help.

      Ok Guys, this is bad :

      I have just finished all the steps. So i have an Iphone 3G and my baseband is 02.28.00.
      I have lost my network.

      What did i do wrong ?

      Thanks

      You need to upgrade to an original 3.0 ipsw first. Then do the tutorial on the front page to create a custom 3.1 ipsw to load onto the phone. Ultrasn0w will not work on the 2.28.00 baseband. It must be on 4.26.08, which is what comes from the 3.0 upgrade. Make sure you put the phone in DFU mode, and then Option+click Restore and browse for the 3.0 ipsw. You can download 3.0 herehttp://modmyi.com/forums/downloads.p...30511&act=down

      After it is complete, follow the guide in the OP. Then run ultrasn0w...

      DO NOT upgrade to an official 3.1 ipsw in iTunes or you will lose the ability to unlock

      Read the whole thread but couldn't locate any info on my issue, so I thought I'd post to the thread. Running a 3G and trying to update to 3.1 using Pwnage. No problem with finding the .ipsw, running Pwnage and getting a custom .ipsw. However, when I go into DFU (or even if I don't) when I try to restore and choose the custom .ipsw, I get the error in the screenshot below...



      Any ideas what could be causing this? It's not one of the dreaded 1600 errors, I don't think, so I'm guessing I'm just gagging up a minor detail somewhere. Thanks so much in advance for reading my post and helping, if possible. I really appreciate it.

      You are using the wrong firmware to make your custom ipsw for your particular model. What phone do you have and what is the full name of the original ipsw you are using in pwnage tool

      Thanks so much for your response, I really appreciate it.
      I'm running a 3G, and the firmware I'm using is named "iPhone1,1_3.1_7C144_Restore.ipsw.

      Thanks SO much, you two...I really do appreciate it. I knew it was something like that, but I was running out of ideas as this was the first time I've jailbroken my phone using Pwnage. Guess I can do the calculus but not the algebra

      SAMIR
      What happened?!

      PETER
      You said the thing was supposed to work.

      MICHAEL
      Well, technically it did work.

      PETER
      No it didn't!

      SAMIR
      It did not work, Michael, ok?!

      MICHAEL
      Ok! Ok!

      SAMIR
      Ok?!

      MICHAEL
      Ok! Ok! I must have, I must have put a decimal point in the wrong place
      or something. ****. I always do that. I always mess up some mundane
      detail.

      PETER
      Oh! What is this fairly mundane detail, Michael?!!!!!

      Crap. Crash and burn on that joke
      It's from Office Space, the scene where they find out they've stolen MUCH more money than they thought...I knew I had messed up some mundane detail like that.

      LOL. No idea what you're talking about.
      Is this another one of those things that are 'before my time'?
      Or am I just completely clueless?
