  • 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)

      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!
      This worked first time out of the gate. If you are running windows then follow this and 10 minutes later you are back in business!

      Yes, absolutely! My email, tuner (stations), aim, clock, etc... Everything was restored!

      For some reason, I think even my Winterboard theme setting was restored as well! Because when Reinstalled Winterboard in Cydia uploaded my custom theme and rebooted, my custom theme loads right up. I didn't even entering Winterboard setup!

      So far, so good. No errors, glitch or anything!

      wow sounds like you got lucky. I read it's a good idea to uinstall the hard core cydia system apps first. (catagories was a big one, which I dont use anyway) I think I'll uninstall Winterboard and a few other ones before I let the 2.1 update.

      HAHAHAHAHA IT WORKED!
      my specs:
      -Vista
      -Tmob
      -unlocked from JB2.01
      FOR UPDATE
      Willy's FW 2.1 custom, activate, nobootlogo
      Software used
      Itunes 8 (that's it)

      followed the easiest procedure


      I first click Shift click Update then I got an error which put my Iphone on Restore state. I started Downloading the official 2.1 maybe restore from there then use custom 2.1.
      As I was reading the forum while downloading, I saw spysect's post.
      Cancelled the DL. Shift+Click Restore and clicked Wily's CFW

      I'm just waiting now for Itunes to install all my apps again

      What DOS window is Spysect referring to? I see my iPhone going white and all, but I don't see a DOS window popping up.

      I didn't uninstall anything. The only thing I did was kill the iTuneshelper process in the task manager before doing a shift+restore in iTunes 8. This was done on XP Pro with a 3G iPhone.

      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

      The DOS Prompt is the bit that pops up in Windows when you QuickPWN the phone:



      If you don't know where to stop the QuickPWN, these three steps should do it,

      Step 1) Run Task Manager. (Ctrl-Alt-Del)
      Step 2) Run QuickPWN and follow what it says (Follow Steps 1-10 here: iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak a 2.0.x iPhone Using QuickPwn GUI (Windows))
      Step 3) As it reaches Step 10 (from the iClarified Tutorial) and the long text with "Performing Operation 0, 100% done", EXIT the DOS Window Immediately and you should end up with the White DFU Mode Screen on your iPhone.
      Step 4) Run iTunes 8.0, it should detect the iPhone in Recovery Mode, Shift-Click Restore with Willy's Custom Firmware and hit it!

      btw Thanks for the responses that the method did help you out guys

      Only thing I dont get is ....... HOW THE H*** DID SPYSECT FIGURE THIS OUT
      This guy is a GENIOUS.

      Thanks a billion.
      Funny thing is, Google is your friend after mish-mmashing with loads of different sites, it actually worked :P Thank Willy for giving out custom IPSWs

      Yes I had an iPhone 2.0.2 at the beginning which ran with Error 6 and 1600 on iTunes when I wanted to clean my iPhone for the upgrade, and the steps are all you have to do. Backups work too!

      i've noticed 2.1 brings up a weird thing on iphone 2G after upgrading to 2.1. I got 2G & 3G iphones and i switched sim cards, after upgrading the firmware in both only the 2G recognized i had the wrong sim, so i had to switch back, do you guys know if 2.1 is unlockable yet?

      PD. both sims are ATT

      Question, i tried hacking my phone through iTunes 8 following the tutorial, but if would let me when i tried restoring off of the pwned firmware, now i read online that itunes 8 recognized rouge firmwares how to you bypass this?

      Can someone answer this simple question, i have a JB (used winpwn) 2G, ATT phone with 1.1.4 as my current FW. Can I simply update to 2.1 then either DFU or from the home screen shift restore one of the CFW floating around this thread. This just seems way too easy to be true. And can anyone confirm that they did this same exact (or very close to) thing and it worked. I am on PC with Vista.

      Hey WillyDavidK,

      How is your phone's 2.1 custom firmware holding up over the last couple of days? Any serious bugs lately?
    1. WillyDavidK's Avatar

      I did have an oddball issue where all of my music became 'other' in iTunes and I ended up making the situation worse trying to fix it. But a quick restore and a dose of quickpwn and I was back in business again!

      Other than that, everything has been working seamlessly.

      I was going to do the methods described but I decided to wait. I dont see the large number of people coming in here saying that it worked great, instead, everywhere I see people saying that iTunes is causing so many errors, or other apps are buggy, and quite frankly, if this was a true, 90-95% JB procedure then I would expect to see more people
      doing/saying it worked with no problem for them. I will just wait for winpwn 3.0 to be released. Maybe someone who did any of willydavid's methods with no problems can convince me other wise, but I doubt it.
