  • PwnageTool & QuickPwn 2.1 Released - iTunes 8 Compatible
    The dev team has done it again and this time in only one day. You can now grab your copy of QuickPwn or PwnageTool for Mac OS X that will allow you to pwn your iPhone that is already at firmware version 2.1 or load on a custom 2.1 .ispw.



    Here's the OS X PwnageTool guide.

    Need Firmware?

    3g iPhone 2.1
    2g iPhone 2.1

    Yes there are no issues with iTunes 8 when you use these. No patching required at all Windows users will need to wait a bit for Windows programs to catch up. These are not for the new iPod Touch since the devs don't have one yet.

    Just like last time, they've initially released the tools via bit torrent only. MMi has provided mirrors as well. Here's the download info:

    Pwnage Tool 2.1 (OS X)

    QuickPwn Tool 1.1 (OS X)

      Just QuickPwn'd my iPhone 3G OS 2.1 and Poof'd a few apps I didn't want on the springboard - including Poof - opting to launch these via AppFlow instead as I had done till now.

      The problem? AppFlow does not work anymore! And with Poof poof'd, I can't launch it to unpoof the apps I poof'd!

      Tried gLauncher and Launcher too, and they don't work either!!

      SO TREAD CAREFULLY IF YOU DECIDE TO USE POOF ON 2.1!!!

      I'm surprised that nobody has found a solution for problems when hiding apps yet...
      Usually, I just go to general settings and click on "reset all settings" and it will bring back hidden apps, but remove custom themes and settings. It doesn't remove any apps or anything, just customized stuff on the phone get returned to default.

      As for the custom 2.1, it works great =D

      Laz305, thanks for the advice, but it is infact bl-39.bin, the same file that I've used in all of my previous pwning. It just wont recognize it.

      Alright, another update: I'm uploading a few ipsw's at the moment. All are 3G, however I may start working on 2G ones if I can get the firmware linked to in the original post to work. Here's what I'm uploading atm:

      iPhone 3G 2.1, no activation, cydia and installer, custom boot logos (standard settings)
      iPhone 3g 2.1, no activation, cydia and installer, default boot logos
      iPhone 3G 2.1, no activation, cydia only (no installer), default boot logos

      I was originally gonna do ones with activation (Activate my Phone box checked) but since this is for 3G and there is no soft-unlock as of yet, is this even necessary?

      Before I try to do 2G, are there any other requests for 3G combinations, such as no installer, but with custom boot logos, etc?

      I'll put up the link to the files once the above 3 are uploaded (approx. 30 min)


      SMEE: I don't understand the step about copying old applications from the stash?

      Why does it have to backup every time you sync?
      It is taking forever on 2.1

      Worked EXCELLENT for me with Grip`s custom firmware.First restored with iTunes 8 (just restore option,without DFU mode). Then restore from backup of my old sync.All app`s from 2.0.2 are here and working (IM+,palringo,quickpoker e.t.c).

      THANKS one more time to Grip for helping to one more windows user.

      i got a question. I have a jailbroken iphone on 2.0 firmware, i was curious if i can download the new PwnageTool and make a custom firmware out of 2.1 then just update my jailbroken iphone through iTunes 8 with that custom firmware and still keep all my apps and settings?

      Open terminal, type
      cd .ssh
      rm known_hosts

      This wil remove the known_hosts file that stores the ssh key.

      the backup feature available on cydia only backs up a list and reinstalls apps. Why do that when uve already installed them? Do it my way and you lose nothing!!
      The mobileinstalation patch I listed is only for if you want your old jailbroken and hacked ipa apps. Don't use the patched 2.0 mobile installation or you'll get the same brick I did!!
      Enjoy boys and girls
      Smee

      PS I'm out drinking so have very limited access to my phone without a massive winge fest from my friends. Still beat em all at poker mind!!!

      PPS Note to BTUNG

      When u SSH the key will have changed as u have upgraded bud, this is normal so don't panic. U may want to change ur password though as it will now be alpine again. Once u have used Transmit or whatever program u have used to log in use terminal and type ssh root@192.[email protected] or whatever you ip is on your iPhone, type your password which is alpine when requested then type passwd and enter to change ur password to a more secure one. Hope that helps bud.
