  • PwnageTool 4.2: UnTethered Custom Firmware for iOS 4.2.1


    The iPhone Dev Team has released PwnageTool 4.2, which is now untethered thanks to the help of the Chronic Dev Team. With their permission, the Dev Team has included this exploit in PwnageTool 4.2.

    What is the difference between PwnageTool and GreenPois0n? By using PwntageTool, unlockers can safely restore to a custom 4.2.1 pre-jailbroken IPSW firmware and still retain the current baseband and unlock.

    By the sounds of things, pod2g and the chronic team will probably add this same support that PwnageTool includes.

    Supported Devices include: (Mac OS X Only)
    • iPhone3G
    • iPhone3GS
    • iPhone4
    • iPhone4-Verizon
    • iPod touch 3G
    • iPod touch 4G
    • iPad
    • AppleTV 2G

    PwnageTool also includes two very recent improvements to the 4.2.1 JB: iBooks was just fixed by @comex and @pushfix last night so that it works as intended on DRMed books, and the wifi problem on AppleTV 2G was fixed by @nitotv, @DHowett, and @saurik. Both of these fixes will also be available in upcoming Cydia package updates, so if youre already jailbroken you can wait for those updates rather than restore and jailbreak again.

    The various components to the 4.2.1 untether (including a second exploit involving Mach-o headers) were worked out by 0naj, posixninja, and pod2g, and a nice writeup by 0naj is available on the wiki. The actual injection method uses geohots limerain exploit for most devices. And even though 4.3 is just around the corner, the exploit used has already been closed in the latest 4.3 betas, so it made sense for the 4.2.1 untether to be released when it was. It also appears that a security researcher named @i0n1c has a 4.3 untether ready for when Apple releases the final 4.3 FW, so it may not be a long wait at all with 4.3!

      All this does is it encourages non cracked apps/books users to use them... Pathetic apple... I'm so annoyed I can't read my books which I paid for and I brought 12 books... What wait I can't read it? ...guess I'll wait for a greenpois0n update. I'm sure @pod2g asked @musclenerd or @comex for permission to use the fix

      Does the wifi issue mean that i will not have to keep putting my password in everytime i use my atv2g? I mean once i put my password in the atv2g will remember it and i will not have to keep entering my password. ?

      Have you tried to download the newest version of TinyUmbrella? I believe they added an "enter recovery mode" button to it, so you don't have to worry about putting in DFU with your phone.

      I'm assuming there hasn't been an iPad baseband upgrade, so disregard this if there has: iPad baseband 6.15.00 is unlocked with ultrasn0w upon completion of jailbreaking the iPad.

      Also, can I just state the irony that "Greenpois0n does not work on a device that has been restored using a custom firmware." Yet, the dev team is using the Greenpois0n exploit to create custom firmware?

      LOL.

      Guess they delayed this announcement. Unlock is different! But, this will aloe u to keep your current Baseband, and upgrade iOS.

      Unlock is different!!

      *** be warned! You mist preserve your Baseband to keep your unlock! Don't forget to preserve your Baseband! ***

      Untrasn0w to come.

      I checked active monitor and there's still activity on itunes so... I'm leaving it. This is way longer than it's ever been to do this process though.

      3rd attempt and still no go. I'm trying to restore back to the previous firmware that I was on 4.1 (sorry not 4.0.1) that was jailbroken via pwnage and it's doing the same thing.

      Yea I gave up trying to use pwnage tool. I ended up using sn0wbreeze 2.2 and now on fw 4.2.1 jailbroken without having to update to the newer baseband. Give sn0wbreeze a try if pwnage tool still isn't working out for you.

      i figured it out!

      i had wifisync installed on my mac. All I did was uninstall it and then tried again after putting the phone back in to DFU mode and it worked!

      ah that would explain why sn0wbreeze on my desktop worked. I was trying to use pwnage tool on my mbp and I happen to have wifi sync installed as well lol damn you wifisync....
