  • 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!

      I'm on baseband 05.13.04 with fw 4.0.1(8A306) so if I use this program to upgrade will it maintain the baseband?

      How do I run a .dmg in windows7? seems like a image to burn. WTF!

      Also does this 4.2.1 fw improve the speed cuz I found that with 3.1.3 it was better for typing then the two 4/4.0.1 that I have, as in would there would be no slow downs and precise like how 3.x was.

      You can't run a .dmg in Windows because PwnageTool is a MAC only program. You have 2 options for creating a custom firmware...

      1. Get a Virtual Mac up & running & use that to create the firmware then use redsn0w's "pwned DFU mode" to install the custom firmware.

      2. Try your luck with sn0wbreeze.

      Those are your 2 options.

      You can use the existing version of Ultrasn0w with Pwnage Tool cause it keeps you on the same baseband.

      Is there a way to use this to unlock a phone already on 4.2.1? I was on 4.0.1, but had an issue and had to restore on 4.2.1 losing my unlock.

      Any suggestions/directions would be gratefully accepted.

      May not be a long wait for 4.3 untethered? Where have I heard this before?

      No, I'll just expect that around May, and not get my hopes up every month like I did with 4.2.1... Which runs awesome on Greenpois0n.

      How friggin rude of crApple to block PAID FOR books from being read just because the device is jailbreaked. Thats gotta be illegal in crApples part. You paid for it but they refuse to let you read it?

      After you give them money for the device then the ibook you should be able to do whatever you like with YOUR stuff.
