  • iBuilder - Make Your Own Custom Firmware | Windows


    iBuilder, a nifty new project by rotem25, allows you to select from a large list of items for your iPhone, and create a package which can then be added to your internalPackages in iPwnage and used to create a custom firmware for your iPhone.

    You can then use iTunes to simply restore your iPhone to the new firmware, with all your favorite apps, sources, or packages already in there. Not too bad...

    Here's the Windows iPwnage thread...

      Yes, it is jailbreakable, or it would not be on many iPhone's via Pwnage right now. I know that you probably mean applications work on it, but the term 'jailbroken' is a bit different:

      What I'm trying to say is that 2.0 can be jailbroken as far as SSHing into the system goes. Jailbreaking is changing the file system from read only to read/write. I'll post this again to clarify:

      "A jailbreak is the act or tool used to perform the act of breaking out of a chroot or jail in UNIX-like operating systems or bypassing digital rights management (DRM). In the former case it allows the user to see files outside of the filesystem that the administrator intends to make available to the application or user in question. In the context of DRM, this allows the user to run arbitrarily defined code on DRM-encumbered devices as well as break out of chroot-like restrictions. DRM-encumbered devices such as the iPhone have repeatedly been subject to jailbreaks, allowing the execution of arbitrary code, but have had those jailbreaks disabled by vendor updates.[1][2] It was only in the wake of the popularity of the iPhone and iPod Touch that the term jailbreaking became well known in popular culture worldwide."

      I like my "wide-open" 1.1.4 as well, but occasionally I like to mess with 2.0 and play with the new features...

      If you're using Windows you can use WinSCP to SSH into your iPhone.

      So...I tried opening it, and it gave an error. Failed to initialize properly. Could this be because I'm booting into WinXP on a Mac? It doesn't make much sense to me. Both versions 1.0 and 1.01 fail.

      update...it works on my other PC with Vista...so...XP/vista complication? or just doesn't like the mac system that's booted into windows...

      ok what i did:
      on win xp added the apps and create ibuilder.bundle
      copy this bundle on mac to: right click on pwnagetool, show package contents ==> resource ==> internalpackages
      start the pwnagetools, browse for a ipsw file, add the new package by clicking custom package and flagging the new one, create my custom ipsw, restore iphone by using itunes

      Now that you have successfully integrated your bundle what happened after you restored? Do all your apps crash that were included in the bundle? If so what were the folder permissions set at?...

      How come the windows one has more options than the mac one?!

      hmm, my apps seem to be crashing as well, just pwned it and restored. i assume its because i am using Vista when using iBuilder to create the bundle? i was looking on another forum and the creater was talking about hes been using xp not vista, and its most prob the user permissions that are causing the problems. if anybody has a fix for this then that would be great, cheers

      I think that stuff is kind of in the past. I think the iPhone community is now relying on Pwnage and QuickPwn for our jailbreaking/unlocking needs. If you want to install the packages, just install them through Cydia...
