  • 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.

      See you on the other side

      Have fun!!
      RaMod,

      Just wanted to let you know the operation "smooth operator" has been completed. Downloaded the UnPwnd from the link you provided, created my own following this tutorial http://www.********************/2008...-20-jailbreak/ (in case someone else needs it... using this guide you shouldnt have any questions) and now my iPhone is back up and running on a Pwnd 2.0.1 firmware

      * GPS works without needing to turned wifi / edge / 3g off
      * Auto-Lock works
      * Emails work (just start from scratch and let iTunes synch your contacts and apps you may have downloaded from the App store)

      - Installer crashes often but it is expected as it is a Beta version.
      - Cydia has crashed more frequently than it did in 2.0 but it still works.

      When you used the IPSW Builder, you left "Activate" checked when it should be NOT checked. I believe that's your problem. Build a new IPSW and make sure the Youtube fix and the "Activate" things are both NOT checked. Then try.

      Just to confirm:

      16GB 3G O2UK iPhone running 2.0 had NOT previously been pwnd

      Successful pwnage with winpwn to pwnd 2.0.1

      Email Working
      Locations Working
      GPS Working
      Installer Working (but buggy)
      Cydia Working
      Intelliscreen working
      Wifi working

      The only issues I seem to be having are that my iTunes often crashes during syncs

      Note: I did NOT restore a backup. I believe that a lot of people are experiencing problems when restoring from a backup. I started from scratch again and everything seems to be working.

      Finally got it all working after my brain fart about the activation check. Only issue I seem to have us that my contacts won't seem to sync. I use mobile me and everything else sync'd but contacts. Any thoughts? Thanks for all the help guys.

      Is it worth it to upgrade a pwned phone to the latest firmware? I've read lots of the posts here and it seems that it is a hit or miss proposition.

      Same here but as stated before, it is a beta app so bugs are expected.

      I for instance get that same error and when trying to click on certain apps i get "error: unable to decode package more info at http://***Web Address***
      I also tried downloading Monkey Ball which did downloaded successful but after finishing the download and installer tried to install the app i got "error: failed script command on line 1: CopyPath"

      My suggestion will be to stay away from downloading apps using installer until a new update gets released and stick to Cydia for now

      First to verify you own a Mac right? It's impossible for /tmp to not be there. If it isn't then you have some more severe problems and your Mac probably won't even boot (I would be surprised if it did).

      First try this in a terminal window:

      1. sudo -s
      2. df -k / (the capacity should be under 95%)
      3. if capacity is over 95% then delete files in your documents directory, downloaded files etc to free up space.
      4. ls -la /tmp (you should see /tmp -> private/tmp)
      5. cd /private/tmp
      6. If it doesn't exist then create with
      a. mkdir /private/tmp
      b. chown root:wheel /private/tmp
      c. chmod 1777 /private/tmp
      d. ln -s /private/tmp /tmp
      7. If /private/tmp exists then only do
      a. ln -s /private/tmp /tmp
      8. reboot

      Make sure you have Push turned on for Contacts. It isn't by default. Go into settings for mail, then click on your email account; it's in those settings.

      Of course it's buggy. That's why it is still in "Beta"
