  • 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)

      I also have 2.1 (via official update) and I'm downloading QuickPwn right now, i'll post updates and let you know how it turned out
      and pcuserforever: macs rule.

      UPDATE: It works likea charm, I had iPhone 3G 16GB with 2.1 official FW and i just quickPwned and it worked great, no problem, no app erasing no nothing, worked like a charm. Thanks a lot Dev Team.

      No, the last time us "poor" Windows users got it first.

      Makes you wonder if the Dev Team doesn't already have both sets and only release one at a time. Like Windows first one time, then Mac, then back to Windows, and again?

      FYI - If you are Jailbroken 2.0.2 and updating to 2.1:make sure that if have app store apps in categories folders, remove the apps in categories before updating, otherwise the apps will be installed and you will not be apble to see\access them on 2.1.

      I'm restoring right now.

      Oops! Ya I think this was already brought up in the other 2.1 thread, not to mention when you install categories it gives you that warning as well. That can be a dangerous little app.

      Anyways, this was a nice surprise to wake to but waiting on Windows Vers.

      Lol its pretty straight forward guys... don't just hit restore button.. at the end of the pwnage tool it states close that app THEN ... PHYSICALLY enter restore mode (Press Home button and Power button together for 10 seconds, then it will fade and turn black - switch off... still holding the home and power button... then the apple logo will appear... the phone is powering up... at this stage imediently let go off the power button but yet STILL holding down on the home button...)

      It then will say in iTunes that you need to restore the iPhone etc etc... at this stage... THIS IS WHEN YOU HIT > ALT + CLICK on RESTORE and find your custom .ipsw firmware..

      It is as easy as A, B, C :mrgreen:

      I have successfully created custom firmware for 2.1 for iPhone 3G and now restored my data

      damm the signal for reception is SOLID!! however wifi doesn't want to show up for me.. stuck with 3G logo on the top... we shall see after a restore... hmm

      I think I just F'd up. I did an update using the Firmware that was posted in the first post. Everything went fine, but when my phone restarted, it would freeze and just vibrate every few seconds.

      I bet you by the time I get my hands on a copy of OSX (torrents maybe???) and go through the whole process, the windows version will be out before I'm done! But I guess it would be nice to have the dual boot for future situations.

      Hi
      What does the mobileinstallation file do?

      By the way I have a 2g phone with pwned 2.0 firmware. Do I just update to 2.1 in itunes 8 (so it is unlocked but not jailbroken) then use quickpwn to jailbreak again? Does this keep all my apps intact?

      By mobileinstallation file, you mean so you can install cracked apps? im trying to find out if the old cracked mobileframework file will still work on 2.1 to continue using cracked apps.
