  • PwnageTool 2.0.2 & Installer 4 Soon
    Update: It will be released tomorrow (friday)

    According to their blog, the dev team will be releasing PwnageTool 2.0.2 sometime soon -- perhaps today. The release will be available through the built in updater in the current version of PwnageTool and via direct download for new users.

    What to expect:
    • Ability to pwn iPhone firmware version 2.0.1
    • An updated version of Cydia with bugfixes
    • Update: Installer 4 will be included with this release!
    • No 3g unlock

    The dev team also warns on their blog that you should not upgrade to firmware 2.0.1 via iTunes. Wait until PwnageTool 2.0.2 is released and upgrade to 2.0.1 with a custom ispw. Upgrading directly via iTunes will lessen the chances of you being able to unlock in the future. The dev team is still working on a 3g unlock solution.

    thanks Mooseman

    From the Dev Blog:

    Installer 4 and PwnageTool 2.0.2

    We’ve just had word that our friends at RiPDev almost have Installer 4 (Beta) ready for public beta release, with that awesome news we’ve decided to include it in the PwnageTool 2.0.2 release, we are waiting for the software from them and we need to quickly test and add a small couple of changes that go alongside Installer.

    Expected release date: Friday August 8th.

      Not true stop lying to people.
      You can recover from Restore Mode without restoring. Hold down on the power button till the apple logo turns on.

      5. had a bite to eat, smoked, came back to the pc with Itunes open asking me to restore my backup. chose the latest backup date which was yesterday for me.

      6. had another smoke

      7. came back to a freshly re-pwnt iphone 3g with 2.0.1 cydia and installer

      simple enough.

      Thanks
      There are two types of "cracks" for AppStore apps.

      1 - The app was cracked
      2 - MobileInstallation was patched (in that case you can install original apps - just copy them from another iPhone or get the .ipa file and install via iTunes)

      Cracked apps should work on 2.0.1

      For the second case, you may need to wait for a new MobileInstallation patch

      You can recover from Restore Mode without restoring. Hold down on the power/home button till the apple logo turns on.

      to enter dfu :

      > Plug in your iPhone.
      > Turn it off.
      > Press and hold the Home and the Power buttons simultaneously for exactly 10 seconds.
      > Release the Power button but keep the Home button pressed for 10 more seconds. You needn't be exact here. Just keep the Home button pressed until the device switches to DFU mode.
      > Release the Home button after the 10 seconds have passed.

      and for second question - you hold down the shift button while clicking restore to open a dialog box to select the new 2.0.1 firmware

      dont update to 2.0.1 first because apparantly this changed the baseband of the 3g phone and could render it un unlockable. so just proceed with just 2.0

      Just hold down home and sleep for 30 seconds, this will take your iPhone out of DFU mode. I think the apple logo should appear if your out of dfu mode.

      Has your iTunes been pwned??

      You can usually restore to the custom firmware in recovery mode, well you could on original iPhone.

      You usually get error 1601 when trying to install custom firmware in DFU mode without iTunes being pwned but if you put your iPhone into recovery mode and then restore to the custom firmware, it goes fine, well it has for me and many people.

      DFU rarely works with custom firmware, usually a lot of peoples error 16xx's are solved by putting iPhone into recovery mode and then restoring to the custom firmware.
