  • 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)

When its all said and done the same thing u do in quickpwn for MAC is the same thing u do for Windows! just 2 diff systems
      have you even read the past 35 pages? it depends on if you running the 2g i phone or the 3g iphone and if you wanna be att locked or not. theres alot of variables working here and most of the posts are people saying 'unlocked and working thanks!' with no details as to what program, what steps they took, what iphone they have, what carrier they are using, nothing.

      Quick and simple question, which i asked earlier and got no response.

      If i use quickpwn on my 3g AT&T carrier phone, will it mess with anything that wont be reversable? (baseband?..) i havent jailbroken since 1.1.3 on my old 2g phone and i remember some issues with basebands.

      And lastly, if i do use pwnage or quickpwn, will restoring with an authentic apple firmware reverse it all back to factory?

      I would venture to assume that your "noactivate" ISPW's are for ATT or any other legit iPhone Carrier right?!
      As someone previously stated, there are so many variables/combinations possible that it ain't so easy to simply follow said instructions.

      We're not all Hawmarican!

      Yes sorry, well I've explained it so many times it's hard to mention every single variable every time. Slipped my mind this time, but yes noactivate is for anyone with the typical carrier for their country.

      UPDATE: I finally got an official form up for ipsw requests. It took me a while, as my html skills are a bit rusty, but here it is, please send requests using this form from now on!!:

      ok so I read 90 percent of this stuff and couldn't find these answers.

      I'm on a 2g phone running 1.1.4
      using a mac
      presently on iTunes 7.x just before 8.
      as I read there were issues with this process using iTunes 8.

      So

      Do I have to upgrade from 1.1.4 before using pwnage tool 2.1?

      Do have to upgrade to iTunes 8?
      Heard there were problems

      Does pwnage tool create a backup of my phone inside the custom ispw it generates for me to use as a restore? Or does all that info go back onto the phone on the next sync after all is done?

      Sorry if this has been said before but it was hard trying to scroll through all the windows whiners pleas for help.

      Any help would be great
      Thx

      wileydavidk Your the man for helping everyone out. Unfortunatley i tried the shift+restore and ran into error 6. So i went the quickpwn route and im glad to say after 2 days and alot of frustration, im successfully on 2.1 on the 3g.

      wileydavidk, I have been able to restore both a 2G and 3G with your files. I ran in to several problems trying to do it by putting the phone in DFU mode but it always faulted. I found that if you place the phone in restore mode only, shift restore, then itunes will restore your phone with the custom firmware with out any issues.

      Thanks wileydavidk for the files!!!

      okay so from what ive read alot of people are having luck upgrading to itunes 8, leaving the phone on the home screen and then just upgrading to a custom 2.1 ipsw so this is what i think im going to try.

      okay and id like to report back SUCCESS.

      thanks to WillyDavidK for the custom ipsw im now on 2.1 unlocked, jailbroken, and activated from a PC!

      for anyone else thats on a 2g iphone and Windows, follow the link to WillyDavidK's custom ipsw's, find the one thats right for you, if you dont know which one that is check his link to his request form theres alot more info there that may help you.

      Download the ipsw that fits your needs, upgrade your itunes to itunes 8.

      Leave phone on home screen, DO NOT put phone in dfu mode.

      The just hold shift, click on restore in itunes 8 and restore to the custom ipsw you just downloaded.

      Simple, easy, and everythings working great. thanks again Willydavid!

      Hello, folks..
      If you're running into error's updating your 2G and 3G with the bootloader. I found the reason. All the files that are used to make the custom firmware NEEDS to be in ONE FOLDER to function. exp. make a folder name it iPhone or whatever. (1. BL-32.bin & BL-46.bin, (2. your custom logo's if you have one, (3. Pwnagetool, (4.the restore.ipsw firmware 2.1. lastly, run the Pwnagetool and just follow the steps and work from that one FOLDER. Good luck.

      Solution
      I have had the same problems before and have found a way to tackle it.

      It involves have one 2.0.x ipsw (supported by the Windows QuickPWN) and the custom 2.1 IPSW from Willy.

      Load the QuickPWN up with the 2.0.x ipsw and go through it normally until you reach the DOS part.
      Follow the "How to enter White DFU Mode" correctly (the bit where it tells you the power button and home button.)
      As it detects it in DFU in DOS, the long text of Operation 0 appears and your iphone goes White.

      You must TERMINATE the DOS window immediately, use Task Manager for that. (best to leave Task Manager open and ready when you do it.)

      Load up iTunes 8.0 and should detect the iPhone in White DFU Mode.
      Shift Restore with Willy's Custom 2.1 Firmware.

      And Voila! One perfect back to life iPhone!

      PS. First time poster here, hope the post was alright :P
      This guys is on the money! This solved all my problems. If you are getting errors from iTunes... DO THIS!!! Thanks champ

      mattkeane88, that looks like the easiest way for me to upgrade from 2.0.2 to 2.1.

      Will I be able to do a backup/restore to keep all my appstore apps/settings?

      Will I be able to use the Cydia installed "app backup" to recover jailbroken apps/settings?

      I'm not sure why these other methods of windows 2.1 upgrades talk about installing itunes 8, uninstalling and putting itunes 7.7 back on, followed by so many other post follow up steps. If the method you quoted works, that's pretty straight forward. Is that it? or this only for the error fix nothing more

      I can confirm that the method described by 'spysect' works like a charm.
      Only thing I dont get is ....... HOW THE H*** DID SPYSECT FIGURE THIS OUT
      This guy is a GENIOUS.

      Thanks a billion.

      I use WillyDavidK's custom firmware (custom_noactivate_nobootlogos) on my winpwned 2.0.2 3G without updating and by just restoring it using with his firmware and it works perfectly!

      Restored my 2.0.2 backup, and I got my phone fully working again!

      Thanks spysect, I'm going to try this as my upgrade method from 2.0.2 to 2.1 The other ways seem to involve installing/uninstalling/reinstalling intuens8.0/7.7 If All I need to do are the steps above, I'm ready to try it tonight after work. Hopefully the backup restores afterwards as well.

      hmmmm well this is even easier then. Hold in Shift, click restore, and browse to your hacked firmware? (easy) Did itunes backup and restore all your appstore apps + settings? I guess if I hit any error messages then I'll follow the other method above.

      Ok so here's an easy one:

      My Touch is syncd to pc. The touch has been pwnd with winpwn before but since jb'ing 2.1 I couldnt backup. I have since restored my ipod to a fresh 2.1.
      My phone has yet to be syncd to any of my comps. I bought the phone and it has been jb'd, but since I dont know what they did, I wanna start fresh. What should I do here first?

      I have already built the cfw's with the pwnage tool. Can I use mac and the pwnage-tool to load the cfw's on the iPod & iPhone, and not have any issues syncing back on pc? PC is where all my music, ect is located. I have only recently been rewarded with a mac.

      So how does this sound?
      (I just emailed the following to my friend who is on 2.0.2 with AT&T 3G)
      ____________________________________

      QuickPwn is out for Mac users, but since the guys at Main Page - WinPwn (makers of quickpwn for windows) are behind, there is another method to jailbreak for now. (if we don’t want to wait another week) I know I can’t wait, 2.1 is supposed to fix all crashes, and slow contact searching etc.

      Here’s what we do: (I’m trying it tonight on mine)

      1) Uninstall and Install the latest iPhobneBrowser 1.81 iphonebrowser - Google Code
      2) Use iPhoneBrowser to transfer off your cycorder videos to your PC so they are not lost. (And any other apps such a Nintendo emulator roms etc)
      3) Install/Update Itunes 8.0
      4) Let ITunes do a complete backup of your iphone
      5) Let ITunes upgrade your phone to 2.1
      6) Download these
      original firmware Apple Forums | ModMyi.com | iPhone, iPod, Mac, OS X, Mods, More - Downloads - iPhone 2.0.2 3g
      hacked firmware http://willydavidk.kittsplace.com/MM...bootlogos.ipsw
      QuickPwnRC3 Apple Forums | ModMyi.com | iPhone, iPod, Mac, OS X, Mods, More - Downloads - Windows
      7) Follow these steps (last part this post) http://www.modmyi.com/forums/iphone-...ml#post2204581
      8) iTunes should restore your backup / settings after all that
      9) Reinstall the Cydia apps you had before
