  • 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)

      Anyone happen to have/uploaded a custom 2.1 firmware for the iPhone 2G?
      (unlocked/activated, youtube fix, default/lowest partition size, Cydia, NO custom boot logo, NO installer, hidden bootneuter)

      You can disable those automatic backups with Terminal. Type:

      defaults write com.apple.iTunes AutomaticDeviceBackupsDisabled -bool true

      hit return

      If you want to enable them again type:

      defaults write com.apple.iTunes AutomaticDeviceBackupsDisabled -bool false

      and hit return

      When you type these commands in Terminal you may want to have iTunes not running.

      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?

      they almost done man? im dyin here!

      haha there right above me sorry! thanks

      awesome! this is great! a few questions i need to ask before i pwn my iphone 3g 8gb again if you guys dont mind! I am currently in firmware 2.02 pwned with quickpwn (so i know ho to use it) running itunes 7.7. Questions:

      - in order to get a jailbroken 2.1 iphone, i must download itunes 8, update to official firmware 2.1 via itunes 8, run quickpwn with the 3g ipsw?
      - will all of my jailbroken apps like winterboard and all my custom themes get erased?
      - do i need to back anything up before i jailbreak with 2.1?

      its just i got confused reading posts about using DFU mode etc, and the 1600 error, so i am kind of worried, since this will be my second time jailbreaking an iphone.

      Thanks!

      Just wondering, by following those directions, are all the settings and files on the phone still saved (i.e. text messages, e-mails, passwords in safari, pictures, etc...)?

      for the people that are having problems with getting their bootloader 3.9 to be recognized try making a new folder on your desktop and add:

      bootloader 3.9 & 4.6
      Pwnage Tool 2.1
      2.1 Firmware

      ...or you can just copy all those onto your desktop.
      It worked great for me so I hope it does the same for you all!

      Thanks to mstrike from hackint0sh.org for the advice

      Hey guys I'm building the following 2G ipsw's right now, and will start uploading them ASAP:
      iPhone 2G 2.1 with activation, default boot logos
      iPhone 2G 2.1 no activation, default boot logos

      Are there any other ipsw requests?

      pwnage is building a 2G ipsw at the moment so I can't check, but it's left at the default setting (500MB or 50MB I think)
      EDIT: confirmed 500MB

      can you list other details on the activated ipsw? like unlocked, neutered, bootloader version?

      you'd be a pal if you made one for me, 2g, 2.1ipsw, activated, unlocked, neutered, bootloader 4.6 and partition size 750mb
    1. WillyDavidK's Avatar
      WillyDavidK -
      I can do that, do you want both cydia and installer? Do you want custom boot logos?

      The first 2 2G ones have the default Neuter settings (neteured, update bootloader unchecked, unlock baseband and auto delete checked)

      EDIT: TO ALL DOWNLOADING: if you see a file on the server that starts with .pureftpd it's an upload in progress - DO NOT DOWNLOAD until it finishes and changes to the proper name.

      WillydavidK im in the process of doing mine now and i picked the one that said noactivation, nobootlogos. that does have installer and cydia? it was the one in the middle on your page.
    1. WillyDavidK's Avatar
      WillyDavidK -
      Yes it comes with both, if something is not mentioned it means that it is at default settings.

      EDIT: Smirkis: still waiting on your response so I can start building and uploading yours
