  • [Release] Pwnage & Quickpwn 2.5.5 for OSX


    The iPhone-Dev Team released new OSX versions of pwnage and quickpwn this morning for firmware 2.2.1 compatibility. For 3G users that want to upgrade to 2.2.1 and unlock you MUST use pwnage tool and disable the baseband update to conserve your 2.28.00 baseband. For first generation users there is no baseband update so just restore in iTunes to 2.2.1 and use the new version of Quickpwn to jailbreak.

    A new version of Yellowsn0w has been uploaded for 2.2.1 compatibility as well so after you jailbreak add the source: apt9.yellowsn0w.com in Cydia and install version 0.9.7 and then reboot. This versions DOES NOT WORK WITH THE 2.2.1 BASEBAND so if you want to remain unlocked you MUST update with a custom firmware (via Pwnage Tool) that does not include the baseband update.

    For 3G users that have upgraded your baseband to 2.30.00 there is no way to unlock or downgrade your baseband so you are stuck until the Dev team can figure out how to crack the new baseband which may not be possible... no one knows yet.

    Windows Users: For 3G iPhones you will have to download and use a custom built 2.2.1 firmware with the baseband update disabled.

    Oh and if you haven't patched OSX 10.5.6 the devs posted a neat little guide:

    As noted previously OS X 10.5.6 introduced a bug that affected the use of DFU mode. with some Macs. There have been previously published hacks and techniques to fix this, but here is another method that can be used to easily restore functionality.
    1. You will need an account with ADC (Apple Developer Connection) this is free and takes a few minutes to sign up, you should read the terms and conditions carefully and you should only sign up if you are thinking of developing applications in the future - Apple Developer Connection - Mac Dev Center
    2. Download the disk image “IOUSBFamily-315.4-log.dmg” for Mac OS X 10.5.5 Build 9F33” (yes, that is a “5” in 10.5.5 - this is a developer debug package of the USB kernel extension).
      Unplug non-vital USB equipment, such as external DVD writers, USB scanners, USB mass storage devices,
    3. Unplug non-vital USB equipment, such as external DVD writers, USB scanners, USB mass storage devices, at the most leave a Keyboard and Mouse connected.
    4. nstall IOUSBFamily-315.4.1.pkg from within the disk image
    5. Reboot your system!
    6. Perform necessary DFU activity with QuickPwn or PwnageTool.
    7. Download the disk image “IOUSBFamily-327.4.0-log.dmg” for Mac OS X 10.5.6 Build 9G55
    8. Install IOUSBFamily-327.4.0.pkg from within the disk image
    9. Reboot your system!
    10. Reattach your USB peripherals.

    OR

    Simply connect through a USB Hub

      This firmware isn't worth the hassle

      Off Topic but @ BenzoHartt, your signature,
      "A pimp such as i could never endorse a phone called Blackberry. Aint that a fruit? Sounds like it should be in pie."

      But Apple is also a fruit and that actually goes in Apple pies!! Soz it's just that your signature has been doing my head in for the past few weeks lol

      actually, people say its more stable, so i think it IS worth the hassle. people have trouble with their 128kb SIMs since the yellowsn0w update, though...

      Just ran Pwnage on my 3G iPhone on a Mac with all relevant software updated. I'm a legit AT&T user...

      The process went fine, except I no longer have phone service. Everything else is ok.

      Any suggestions?

      thx

      Is this where i can get quickpwn 2.2.1 for Windows to upgrade my iphone firmware to 2.2.1?
      QuickPWN

      Edit - I just noticed that it states
      "the official Windows version of QuickPWN hasn’t been released, it’s coming soon so check back later. If you really want to try a Windows version right now (but it’s highly recommended you wait for the official version) you can try the unofficial Windows QuickPWN release at this link: http://www.quickpwn.com/2009/01/jailbreak-firmware-2-2-1.html"

      has anyone used this unofficial version of quickpwn? does it work? is it worth using it for the firmware update?
      From what i have read, the update doesnt seem too important so I could wait for the official dev team release.

      Alexcutter: you used PwnageTools right? afterwards, make sure you download the update for yellowsn0w (if you have a 3g). if you DONT have a 3g, you should flash your iphone 2g clean with 2.2.1 and rejailbreak.

      Thanks, but it's working now.

      I restored back to default settings, then ran Pwnage Tool a second time, this time not in "expert" mode. Fixed the problem.

      Step one:

      3 lines down it says

      "You will also need the 2.2.1 iPhone firmware.
      2.2.1 (3G): iPhone1,2_2.2.1_5H11_Restore.ipsw"

      That is it right there. I am also having problems as a legit at&t user getting a signal. Anyone else and if so, without having to use yellowsn0w, what can I do? Thanks!

      That is not a custom firmware that is just 2.2.1

      But that is the firmware that I use when pwnage tool browses for firmware, correct? I know that pwnage tool actually builds a custom firmware to restore from. Did I do something wrong?
