  • 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)

      You can recover your apps and themes from your 'stash'. See SMEEs tutorial on page 29 (just the part about copying the files from /var/stash)

      I actually have a new problem which is a bit disconcerting. All of my music has become 'other'. In other words, instead of a big green bar in iTunes, I now have a big orange bar. Also the iPod doesn't see any of my music now (despite it all still being on the iPhone) and under Music in iTunes (under my device) there is more of the same. Anybody have an idea of whats up? It was working for a while, I'm not sure what happened exactly o_0
      Just keep in mind for the newbies out there that you have to rename the .zip file from your site Index of /MMi to a .ipsw file for it to work. Thanks for posting the files for us windows guys.

      yes as I continue to have to say again on every page, if your browser adds .zip to the end of the files (they aren't actually zip files) just remove it, do NOT attempt to unzip the files, it will just give you a headache.

      If i am on 1.14 and want to upgrade to 2.02 then 2.1 how do i do that if i already downloaded the update of 2.1 but have not installed it? Windows XP. I am sure it has been covered but maybe not since most of you have already updated to 2.02 and i just did not have the time to do it yet and i want to be able to put on the applications ect. My phone is currently jailbroken using iliberty

      Can someone please create a custom IPSW for the 2G iPhone for me, I would greatly appreciate it... Please include JB, Activate, Unlock, YouTube Fix, Cydia, installer, Auto Delete BootNuetor, 500mb partition, Full Wipe and Custom boot/Recovery logo (these logos)...

      actually it has been covered. Go ahead and update to 2.1 normally through iTunes, then use the CFW after your phone is upgraded to factory 2.1.

      VBP2004EP3: those boot logos are no good

      So WillyDavidK

      I go to your site pick the firmware and after updateing then i do a shift and hit restore and browse for your firmware and install it. Correct? And that will take me from 1.14 jb with iliberty to 2.1 successfully?

      I would update your iPhone to the 2.1 software first, then load the CFW

      PS- I already answered your first post, two posts up

      Anyone having the following problem: All my Apps are in the Applications folder, the one with 6 digits at the end but the springboard will only show some of the Apps icon's. All the apps I got from Cydia were working with icons showing and then I restored from backup and now only a select few showup while none of the AppStore icons are showing at all.

      Any clue how to fix this? I've spent all Sunday on this.

      WillyDavidK,

      This happened to me last night. I had updated and everything was running great. I was cruising around installer and my phone crashed. after about five minutes of black screen (little spinning icon thing), i thought i would have to restore completely. For fun, i plugged it into itunes and got a similar screen to what you provided in your screen shot. I power cycled the device and re-synced and the phone returned to what was expected. It hasnt happened since, so i kind of wrote it off as a freak occurrence.

      Hm, I suppose you were lucky. Mine was persistent, and I tried to fix it, but ended up making it worse, so I just restored fresh again and quickpwn'd. I'm about back to my previous state now, but have yet to put the music back

      did you have categories installed previousy installed, i had the same proble. Just reinstalled categories and was able to add them in there and delete them again, that made them show up in the springboard again.

      VBP2004EP3: prolly a winpwn thing, but pwnage rejects both images. You can just use default boot logos for now until winpwn comes out if you want.

      cmurderr: I've never used mivtones, I would direct your question to the developers of the program itself. They will probably update it soon for compatibility with 2.1. Have you reinstalled it?
