  • 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!

      That is a very old method and hasn't actually "supposedly" worked since 1.1.4 days. Are you sure you were in dfu and not recovery?

      Everything I have read on that method says it doesn't work anymore. I will try it tomorrow though to be sure.

      GreenPois0n's iOS 4.2.1 JB is better, u can put custom boot logos from Cydia on ur iPhone or iPod Touch, AND there's an improvement in the software stability as compared to other knockoff jailbreaks

      Why is that? I have a friend whose JB on iOS 4.3 Verizon iPhone, he's using T-Mobile on an unlock.

      Umm, no you dont.
      1: There is no 4.3 for Verizon iPhone, they run 4.2.6
      2: A Verizon iPhone is not capable of running on T-Mobile's network

      my bad, whatever iOS they run, I don't know. BUT: I'm 100% positive he has T-Mobile running on it, he didn't use MakeItMine or anything like that, he proved it. called his *411 service # and an automated T-Mobile machine answered and told him his balance. it was Ultrasnow from Cydia.

      That just means he preserved his baseband when updating to 4.2.1. Probably with tiny umbrella if he used greenpoison.

      so your saying the iOS 4.2.1 GP JB makes it hard to preserve the baseband without a previous JB?

      I am just saying greenpoison itself doesnt preserve baseband. On a iPhone 4 you have the option of using tiny umbrella to preserve baseband. But on a iPhone 3GS that option isn't there. So the only way to preserve baseband for those unlockers is to use pwnage tool or snowbreeze.

      So is GreenPois0n based on an old JB like BlacRa1n or something, where the software is outdated? that could be the problem, like LimeRa1n, if thats the case...
