  • 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)

      ".dmg" files are disk images recognized by MacOS.

      You can not use ".dmg" files in Windows.

      You have to use a third party tool to open it in Windows but then you won't go very far once it contains Mac programs.

      Well that's the files Jazz2k8 and CyberGreg had in their restore files. So I
      thought there must be a way to use them. Since that was the purpose of uploading them.

      Hey guys, sorry I don't have the attention span to read all 16 pages, but I am currently seeding pwnage 2.1, and almost done downloading the 3g 2.1 FW. I am planning to patch a custom ipsw and upload it to my server for the poor windows fellows who need it. Hopefully i won't get bandwith-raped here :-/

      Anyways, in the meantime does anyone know the best method of backing up custom apps for a painless upgrade? I know MMi has a guide, but it seems to be down or overloaded at the moment

      you ain't gotta backup any apps, just follow my guide and you'll have all your old apps, jailbroken apps and hacked ipa apps exactly as you previously had. I'm out at the mo and will write a proper in depth guide on a new post in the morning.

      ps my guide is a few pages back

      sweet I'll check it out.

      UPDATE: seems the new pwnage doesn't like the 3g firmware linked to in the original post. Also leopard shows it as a folder, which shouldn't be happening. I'm trying to just download the new FW via iTunes, but now itunes 8 has decided to hate my iPhone (was working fine earlier) Gonna go find another usb cable to try it with

      EDIT: it was just the dock, using the proper USB cable fixes the iTunes hating. Still updating phone via iTunes, a la smee's guide.

      Hello folks,
      I've read through all 16 pages. It appears that everyone has successfully ignored those of us with questions concerning the bootlaoder problems encountered while using Pwnage 2.1
      I too am unable get my pwnage 2.1 to recognize bootlaoder 3.9. Now that the 2.1 frenzy has subsided, do you reckon someone could help remedy this dilemma?
      Thanks

      Hey you guys i just got on the computer and am tryin to interpret how to do a successful update to 2.1 with a unlocked and jail broken 2.0.1 phone with tmobile. I pretty much got the jyst of it but i would like someone to check my work before i do it. so from my understanding i do this((?) means im confused on the subject):

      update to itunes 8
      update iphone to 2.1
      uninstall itunes 8 and apple mobile support device
      install itunes 7.7(?) why?
      run quickpwn, with custom firmware image for 2.1 (?)
      reboot, etc
      get totalcommander and i pot
      run tc and addon i pot
      get the patch, backup old one then replace
      delete /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist



      is that it? am i missing anything? how to i get all my stuff back on? will all my cydia apps still be on there? does the tzones hack still work? do i have to move any apps?

      I HAVE DONE IT!!!!!
      UPGRADED FROM JAILBROKEN 2.02 TO OFFICIAL 2.1 USING ITUNES 8
      PWNED 2.1 USING QUICKPWN
      INSTALLED SSH USING NEW CYDIA
      COPIED ALL OLD JAILBROKEN APPS FROM STASH/APPLICATIONS FOLDER TO THE NEW APLLICATIONS.KUYFKHG FOLDER AND DONE SAME FOR ALL FOLDERS IN STASH.
      PATCHED MOBILE INSTALATION WITH OLD MODDED 2.02 ONE
      REBOOTED AND BRICKED HOWEVER COULD STILL SSH INTO IPHONE
      REPLACED 2.02 MOBILE INSTALATION WITH THIS ONE Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? No problem! AND SET FOLDER PREFS TO 775.
      REBOOTED AND NOW HAVE ALL MY OLD CYDIA FILES AND APPS, JAILBROKEN APPS, APPSTORE APPS AND HACKED IPA APPS ALL WORKING AS IF I WAS STILL ON 2.02.
      And the best thing it all took less than an hour!!

      Im off to the pub so please dont message me too much about how to do this. Just follow what I have written above and have a little faith!!

      I Rock, You Suck

      SMEE!!
      A simpler way would have been to use AptBackup, a Cydia app that makes a list of your Cydia apps and stores it in iTunes. You run the backup from AptBackup and then sync your phone with iTunes (thus backing it up). Then you upgrade to 2.1 and Quickpwn. As soon as you Quickpwn, you download AptBackup from Cydia again, restore your previous backup from iTunes, and run restore from AptBackup. Voila: your previous Cydia apps are automatically downloaded

      No need to ssh, send files, change permissions, etc.

      just did my phone, works perfectly.

      i upgraded to iTunes 8.0, downloaded the 2.1 FW provided at the top of the thread. use pwnage tool to create CFW 2.1, and just restored using the CFW from iTunes, works like a charm.

      no more keyboard Lag, and it saves my keychains for Wifi, and passwords!

      woot!
