  • [ 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.

      iTunes 9 should be fine - not sure why 8.2 would be any better.
      Why is it not synching your apps?

      In which case 8.2 won't help either.
      Another good feature of 3.1

      Can't, against forum rules.

      Not just against this forum's rules, it is illegal to post modified ROM's so you won't find on any legit site.

      Yeah. Not to get into a huge debate on this and I know the final stance on the forum is you can't post these but it seems odd. If modifying firmware is illegal, I think the tools that modify the firmware should be illegal too. Not that I want PwnageTool to become illegal or anything...but it seems like it's equal to drug paraphernalia. If someone is caught with a crack pipe they still go to jail, even if they don't have the crack on them. It's illegal because it's USED to do crack. The PwnageTool is USED to modify firmware. If posting modifying firmware is illegal, the PwnageTool and redsn0w should be illegal as well.

      You can think what you like.
      The law doesn't think like you - luckily.

      I agree, I'm glad we can discuss the Dev Team's tools here...

      Hosting any ipsw file (arguable hotlinking) is illegal.
      The files are copyrighted by apple...

      What the Dev Team do is perfectly legal (even in America) and they will stay that way.

      It isn't illegal to modify device firmware. I don't know where you got that information. It's illegal to distribute modified firmware. Those files are copyrighted by Apple. Not different than a mod for a computer game. You can distribute the mod, you just can't distribute the game and the modification.

      go to redmond pie website and follow the instruction provided. This will solve your problem but take several hour to finally downgrade back to 3.0. I've try this and it works remarkable. Now my iphone 3g is back on line with 3.01.
