  • [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

      So I just inherited a new iPhone 3G with FW 2.2.1 and baseband 2.30.03 already installed -- is it possible to jailbreak this phone on OSX? I have at&t so I'm not interested in unlocking at all, thanks.

      I have attempted PwnageTool and QuickPwn, both fail with iTunes reporting an "An Ipod has been detected, but it could not be identified properly." error and will not continue. I suspect some issues with DFU mode?

      anyone have insight on my query above?

      whether to upgrade to 2.2 first and then to 2.2.1 or direct to 2.2.1?
      I m a windows user. So I have to use a custom firmware.

      Thanks tha5150 for your reply.

      I dont want to update my baseband. If I update using iTunes then I will lose it.

      I need clarifications, If i just bought an iPhone as a gift, and it is already on the new baseband and new firmware is it possible for me to use Pwnage tool? I am on a Macintosh and they have a legit AT&T contract, so i don't want to unlock, just jailbreak the phone. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!

      Hello I am having a huge problem trying to unlock my 2G iPhone. I have previously been able to unlock it but I had to lock it back up because I had to bring it into Apple. I have the new aluminum Macbook. It is able to create the custom firmware bundle but when I try to restore using this customized bundle I get errors. I have tried it on both my macbook and an older version macbook. Does anyone have any suggestions? Please help thank you !!!

      Do you have a windows computer nearby you can use? It will work just fine on one. Or you can go through a process of downgrading and re-upgrading USB drivers, etc on your Mac.
