  • Pwnage 2.0 Released - 3G/2.0 is Jailbroke!

    Pwnage Tool 2.0 is officially released by the Dev Team.

    edit: 2.0.1 is released now, with the following changes:

    * It auto-finds the bl39 and bl46 files better, if they’re on your computer
    * It creates the ~/Library/iTunes/Device Support/ folder if not present, which should help with some 1600 errors people have been having.
    * Many people have reported the PwnageTool not starting up at all (the icon never stops bouncing). This issue should be resolved now.
    * The Sparkle AppCast URL is fixed in this version, so automatic updates should work for future releases.

    The tool jailbreaks and unlocks any 1st gen iPhones running the 2.0 firmware, and jailbreaks any 3G iPhone/iPod Touch running the 2.0 firmware. It does NOT support older versions of the iPhone/iPod Touch firmware.

    This release DOESN'T UNLOCK 3G iPHONES YET, but they say they're working on that.

    We will have a full guide tonight (edit: here's the guide), but for now here's the download links:

    MMi Members (best performance) | MMi Direct Link | MediaFire

    Edit: As stated in previous News posts, Installer is NOT ready for 2.0 yet, but Cydia is included in the Pwnage Tool jailbreak, and is supported with all of ModMyI's packages from Installer, as well as Bigboss, Zodttd, and many if not most of Ste's packages. Its a more solid and well supported package manager than Installer - don't worry, you can still get most of your jailbroken apps once they're converted to 2.0 compatible by their respective devs.

      everyone keeps saying that this just jailbreaks but they are wrong

      if you have the old iphone it will unlock, jailbreak, and active the 2.0 firmware
      if you have the new 3g iphone it will only jailrbreak and activate

      so it does unlock the old iphone running 2.0 firmware.

      Oh? So if I'm unlocked and Jailbroken with Ziphone, what extra steps do I have to take to make this happen on Windows?

      Seeing as there are no 1.1.4 apps ported yet, will we have the partition problem where apps install to the small system partition, or with the release of the App Store have Apple essentially sorted that out for us?

      From what I read from other website, putting iphone in recovery mode should do it (itune logo +cable)

      I start as new iphone to restore my iphone but I think restore old setting from 1.1.4 should work as well? Anyone know?

      Hmmmm Ziphone lol

      Well you need to head over to the Main Page - WinPwn and get winpwn programme. You will also need a copy of the originall 1.1.4 firmware which can be found on this site or links cans be found on this site. You will also need the 3.9 bl and the 4.6 bl. You should be able to find a good guide on this site some where. Ill see if i can get you one gimmi a sec !!

      I'm not so sure about this. Actually, I'm pretty certain that PWNAGE is just a custom firmware creator. Once you're in DFU mode it doesn't matter what state the phone is in...

      I'll give it a try once cosmoLV (or anyone else) puts up a custom 3G iPhone firmware.

      The cosmo custom firmware that windows can use is all automated and PERFECT.

      put phone into DFU mode
      shift+restore to the custom firmware file
      let the phone do the update
      after update, iphone will bootneuter and unlock automatically
      iphone will clean up and reboot
      everything is unlocked and perfect!!!
      Cydia installed. No installer as 4.0 is not out yet.
      works flawless.

      i'm happy to help! i tested it Two times in MAC and Windows, all working

      You then use whatever method you choose to get the phone into DFU mode, connect to iTunes (windows or mac), and then restore the custom firmware. Please correct me if you think I'm wrong here...

      @cosmoLV - you da man if you can get a 3G custom firmware up tonight!

      If you get Error 1600 from iTunes (or if you see in your log a failure to prepare x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw), try: mkdir “~/Library/iTunes/Device Support” ; if that directory already exists, remove any files in it. Then re-run PwnageTool.

      I've just gone through the steps creating a custom ipsw file then restoring through itunes on the mac. Once it finishes i get the pinapple logo on my iphone and it is continually rebooting. (ie i turn it on and it displays the logo for 5-10 seconds and reboots) the only thing i can do it turn it off. I cant put it into DFU mode either

      Any thoughts?

      Ive never tryed restoring to a custom firware made with winpwn without having my actual phone pwned, so i really dont know weather it has to be pwned, but from what i understood that winpwn or pwnage modified something on the phone in order for the phone to be able to accept the none apple signed FW.

      so i dont know if this helps but the pwnage tool wasnt working for me.. it stopped at the entering dfu mode. so i took the .ipsw file that it made, and did a restore in itunes (newest one) and it worked just fine. of course you get the normal error, but hey it works after you kick it out of dfu. sorry i never write tutorials so if you need help PM me lol remember..this worked for me so if your like me and like to take risks go ahead and try it. if not then dont blame me and/or dont try it.
