  • 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)

      The phone has to be pwned first before you can install a CFW.

      I've tried several of your FAQ walk throughs with no luck.
      I dont remember the last code, but just now I have "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1600)" This was using the DFU mode, shift restore. I even tried the QuickPwn method,but I never see a dos window. does QuickPwn RC3 not show the dos window? I extracted that and ran QuickPwn.exe same thing, never see a dos box. I cant get the timing down to make the white screen stick. Now what?

      ok, so now that I'm not pwned any more, what next? Did I only get once chance for this to work or something?

      No he means it has to have been pwned in the past once before, which I believe you said yours was. Try using an older version of winpwn. The version doesn't really matter as your just using the program to get your phone to the 'white' dfu mode. Also I would suggest restoring to stock 2.1 before making another attempt.

      Ok, I feel your pain since you got your phone the way you want it and others are struggling and you are getting tired of reading posts asking for help. But telling someone to read is an obvious answer and maybe the answer only 35% of the time. You obviously dont know that there are TONS of ways people have unlocked/jailbroken by using one of MANY methods. So most people are posting about their specific phone's setting and reading someone elses experience is hollow if it does not apply directly to the way your phone is set up.

      Basically, STFU if you can not answer a specific question. And out of the 38 pages you keep mentioning, 10 of the pages are people asking for help with a new error they have encountered and 10 more pages are full of people asking for CFW to be posted for us Windows users.

      This worked!

      So they key is to use the older QuickPwn with the older 2.0.1 firmware.

      This older QuickPwn method is much easier to figure out when to terminate quickpwn.exe via task manager.

      The only instructions I would correct are where he says
      "-Start up QuickPWN.exe,"

      what he really means is to run QuickPwn-Bundle-Release.exe

      The actual QuickPWN.exe wont show up in task manager until you get to the middle part of the process.

      As soon as the screen turns white end the task on QuickPWN.exe and the white screen will stay there. Now you can shift restore and you shouldnt get any errors! (I didnt)

      Fantastic!

      Ok, my phone was winpwned already and I am still on 1.1.4, so will a simple shift-restore in iTunes with the CFW work for me? Because all I see are people on 2.x that seem to be having success. If I restore with the default 2.1 FW wont I lose my 'winpwn', thus a shift key restore with CFW wont work?

      ninthchamber99: Maybe you should upgrade to 2.0.1 instead of going straight to 2.1. Then you can be sure you're in the same boat as the rest of us here. Just do a shift restore but point to the older "official" firmware. You can then quickpwn via the older way with the older firmware first

      Well, you ARE rude, and clearly not practicing what you preach!
      somewhere in the high 400's I posted that I HAD read every post in this thread, AND i've been keeping up with it several times a day, EVERYDAY since last Friday. If YOU had been reading, instead of slamming me, you would have known that!!!!
      "The person" stated in that post that he would keep us posted too, and he hasn't posted 1 word since he made that statement on Saturday.
      I'm within my right to indicate in my post that there hasn't been a peep from the Dev's in 4 days. It would be nice to at least know somebody is working on it... it's really starting to seem like there's no Windows Quickpwn even coming!
      I'm not trying to be a PITA, but I need to get up to 2.1, my phone has been acting nutz ever since Cydia did that rash of updates over the weekend.

      Good idea, what did you use to JB 2.0.1, winpwn 2.5 or something else?

      Edit: I see you used quickqwn, what version did you use and is quickpwn better/the same as using winpwn (the only reason I ask is because I am familiar with winpwn not quickpwn)

      Yeah man, I saw you said you did the same thing the other guy suggested. Thanks a lot yo!! Ok another question for you jason, what version of quickpwn did you use and when you went from 2.0.x to 2.1, did you lose any of the apps that you already had on your phone, and I also assume you got no errors with iTunes 8.0?

      Yo, I do appreciate you responding to me. I guess I was upset because I was ready to upgrade my phone, I was not getting any real responses. and I was just mad as hell. So, thanks again.

      Truthfully i think i used the newest quick pwn. the one with 2.0.2 support! I did lose my apps from cydia/installer because u are just quickpwn ur phone in order for the custom firmware to work when installed thru itunes. Basically u are restoring ur phone again with a custom firmware. So all previous apps will have to be reinstalled. set up as new phone and yes i was on the newest itunes! hope that this helps...let us know how it went

      I asked this earlier but no one responded. Can I just plug my syncd-to-windows-device to a mac and use pwnage? Then go back to pc and sync my stuff?
