  • [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

      I also lost my signal when not upgrading the baseband, simply connecting to a wifi connection, installing yellowsn0w and rebooting solved the problem, even though it's an AT&T sim card.

      I have a new iPhone 3G with Firmware 2.2.1. I am on ATT service... Is it possible to jailbreak this phone? If so, how? Thanks in advance,Jon

      I've tried QuickPwn. I am Using a USB hub. I do the DFU thing with home and pwr button. It recognizes that I followed the instructions. My iPhone gets a white screen. Then, the QuickPwn hands at 115K.

      Thanks for help in advance.

      I have just done this update to 2.2.1 I have a factory unlocked phone so I just up dated via itunes and then used quickpwn.

      I am having problems with Cydia now all my apps that I want to install won't work. I keep getting "Cannot Comply" messages for them all..

      Has something gone wrong?

      Also I tried to use Aptbackup to install my apps again but it doesn't work so I went back to doing it manually. Aptbackup it just sits there with the message "this may take a few mins (phone will reboot when done)" 30 mins later and it still wasn't done..

      Anyone know what to do? Could my attempt to use aptbackup runied it?

      EDIT:
      Not to worry the problem has now been fixed.

      I did a complete upgrade in Cydia and now everything seems to be installing ok.

      yes, miro. make sure you make the transition from 2.0.2 to 2.2 THEN update to the custom 2.2.1 firmware if you plan to use yellowsn0w anytime soon. If not, just install and jailbreak the firmware as usual.

      DFU mode makes every install clean. It gives you a fresh start. For those of us who spend a lot of time on our phones, we sometims dont put it in DFU mode, but i might consider putting it in DFU again and flashing one more time. DFU mode IS recommended for a fresh start with little complications.


      for those of you having trouble finding a 2.2.1 firmware without the baseband update, here's a link:

      Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!

      MAJOR thanks to zwayne for making this for us. This one does NOT update the baseband and does NOT ask for activation.

      So i guess i am the first to get a "An Unknown error occurred (21)" when trying to install the new firmware. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? I am not a NoOb and i have done this many times before.... First i restored in itunes, then I created a custom isp using pwnagetool, sucessfully entered DFU mode, selected custom isp in itunes to install, half way through the install i get that error

      EDIT: Woops... After researching, I missed the part to change it to 1000 mb.... could that have caused it?

      I flashed my 3G to 2.2.1.....I've always used the T-Zones hack because I don't pay for full tmobile internet...I don't even have to use the tzones hack anymore..and my Youtube search and everything works now....VERY NICE. I noticed the Tzones hack was no longer on BigBoss...they must've done an update so everything will work when using Tzones or something, because my Youtube never worked unless I was on WiFi. This is great.

      I have the same issue. I successfully jailbreaked and unlocked a 3g 2.2 last night, and today, on the second one, I am getting this issue. Any thoughts?

      So I upgraded to the new firmware through itunes, and before I started the jailbreak/unlock process, I checked the phone and it was running the new firmware and was already jailbroken and unlocked!? It's working fine...should I expect issues later?

      I accidentally updated to the new software and lost my cydia app, and found out the hard way that it did not work with quickpwn. When will you great development hacks upgrade QP to break through the new apple update? soon I hope. the app that i need is the video recorder, can one of you brilliant developers create a video recording app that will work with the new update? that would be the best thing ever.
