  • ITS BEEN PWNED!!!!! | Release of PwnageTool OSX + Windows
    We have been talking about PwnageTool for what seems like ages now. It is finally here! The Dev Team has done an amazing job and released this tool allowing a safer jailbreak for the iPhone and the iPod Touch. We recommend you switch to this method for freeing your Device.

    Note: the steve jobs cartoon bit and the pineapple of the above image are by Sal

    Full OSX Usage Guide with Instructions for 2.0 Beta

    OSX Download from ModMyI | Official download from theiphoneproject.org
    Windows Coming Soon . . .

    Why choose PwnageTool? Unlike other previous jailbreak methods that exploit the iPhone, PwnageTool modifies the iPhone to accept unsigned .ipsw files allowing for a safer Jailbreak using the tried and true iTunes restore. The OSX Version of PwnageTool Not only will pwn your phone but also allows for the creation of custom .ipsw files to load via iTunes.

    OSX Version Features:
    • iPwner - Pwns your iPhone, the safer jailbreak
    • IPSW Builder - Lets you create custom firmware to load to you pwnd phone including unlocking, neutering, custom pictures, activation, and bootloade upgrade/downgrade.
    • Bootneuter: A neutered bootloader survives iTunes updates, even updates to 1.2.0 (aka 2.0). Unlike unlocking which requires a new patch for each firmware version, you only need to neuter once.

    Windows Version Features:
    • Coming Soon

    Once again awesome job Dev Team

    i will get rid of you swiftly and permanently if you ignore me -cash

      I had that problem too and solved it manually

      download the bb files from here
      http://www.iphone-hacks.com/page/2/ (on the bottom)
      n follow instructions
      just stop comm center n run ieraser, then bbupdater, then start comm center , when thats done u can just use ziphone to unlock it.. i heard it now has a wifi-fix included so try that n it works great.. if not.. try wut i told u

      Easy - can you comment on 2 items for me as I am still holding for the Win app before I can do anything.

      1 - Does your Exchange provider enforce security policy dloads with passwords - and if yes did the iPhone handle this ok. I am just seeming this had to be baked in?

      2 - In all of the videos and screenshots I never saw the standard field for "DOMAIN" name.... This is pretty much a standard ActiveSync param and curious if I just did not see a pic with it - or if it did indeed exist.

      Would much appreciate your comments.

      thanks -

      I don't see there are any domain name field. Strangely enough I still can connect to my corp exchange server through SSL. As for jailbreak, I think the phone is indeed jailbreaked. I can SSH into the 1.2 iphone fine.

      You can but there is no reason to if you're phone is working properly. The only thing you gain is a nice pineapple when you boot up. There is no way to load a custom boot image or attach apps to your custom firmware yet.

      I just don't get that --- but THANKS for commenting. I looked like crazy at every video / image and never saw it. This is a very common field unless someone is assuming or documenting that it should be


      For some reason I just have to believe this piece of the code is relatively tight - as it's a port.

      Pleas keep me posted but this was sad / but informative stuff. I can't do anything without the Winapp - but feared this.

      My next concern is the password piece for ActiveSync which again is very very very common and comes from the Blackberry BES world and curious how the iPhone will handle this.

      PLEASE let us know what you find as personally I am blind to this at the moment - but love to know...

      Heck I'd even work side-bar with my account to have you access for me if you would be willing? Without this 2.0 is no need currently.

      I seem to be getting an error that I've not seen anywhere else. I've already perused endless forums looking for someone with similar issues. If anyone has seen this error or knows how to help it would be greatly appreciated.

      Just a question for the future. If you want to do the 2.0 firmware activation with Pwnage you need to pwn 1.1.4 first? So if I would do this for fun, I would have to restore 1.1.4, make the new firmware, do that, then do the 2.0 Pwnage?

      Some have had luck not unlocking, but most have had to unlock from what I have been hearing. You can always just make 2 firmware files and if one doesn't work install the other.
