  • Pwnage - Custom Modded Firmware through iTunes


    Now here's one we've been waiting for. You remember seeing the AMAZING Videos.

    The long and short of it? After "pwn"-ing your iPhone using this method drummed up by the Dev Team, you can install custom .ipsw files directly through iTunes. Huh, say you? It means, open iTunes, Option/Shift Click Restore, choose your modded firmware file, and voila - jailbreak/unlock/Installer/Cydia when its done restoring! No extra steps!



    They will release two tools when this is public - iPwn to Pwn your iPhone, and .IPSW Builder to "modify the .ipsw filesystem, i.e. pre-jailbreak, pre-unlock, pre-activate, and create a complete custom .ipsw installation. In case you are already unlocked you can even tell it to disable the baseband update, just in case. Restore or Update from iTunes with custom .ipsw file and Voila! no more hassles after that."

    And they've even given a TON of info on how they did it.

    Not bad, guys. Not bad.

      Guys, just so you know, I have been told that I can not give out any more information on this, even though I haven't said anything really revealing, just to be safe.

      My old July 1st iPhone is already jailbroken, unlocked, modded, etc. Even so, should I restore to 1.1.4 and use Pwnage? Is it the smartest move for both now and the future?

      Asking this will get you banned.

      If your phone is on 1.1.4, then no. This applies to everyone. If you have a jailbroken/unlocked phone and it's working, there is no need for you to use this.

      My old July 1 iPhone is jailbroken, updated to 1.1.4, unlocked, modded, etc. Is it a good idea to fully restore and use Pwnage? Is it good for the present and wise for the future?

      Thanks.

      Pwnage 2.0 is saying that it doesn't support Installer.app but has the option to install it.
      Am I doing something wrong or is there an easier way to get installer?
