  • 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.

    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

    DO NOT ASK / POST LINKS TO WAREZ. FIRMWARE 1.2 and 2.0 ARE WAREZ. DO NOT POST LINKS TO CUSTOM FIRMWARE IT IS ILLEGAL

      From what I've seen on other forums regarding this, it seems that after an initial issue (such as iPhone FW on iPod Touch or vice versa) a volume is left attached. Try looking to see if /Volumes/Ramdisk is still there in finder then detach it before running the tool again.

      I don't think an installer has been made for 2.0 yet. Probably will be buggy, not sure how to put it on.

      Rebooting your computer should clear all Ramdisks, too.

      that's how i did it the first time, phone worked and everything. i tried it again this time installing bootneuter and then i had no service. did a restore to the original 1.1.4 firmware and i am back to a working phone. i am gonna head to bed and try again in the morning and just watch my steps a little more carefuly. but thank you for the help, i think i just need to read up on it a little better than i have.

      It works for me now.

      What i did was this:

      In Finder choose "Go" in the menu then "Go to folder"
      Write: /Volumes/
      Delete the Ramdisk
      Run Pwnage Tools again.
      No problems.

      If you want google maps working you should use either pawn or iplus2.0. Ziphone works here and there but those will work with your service as well as locating you using a isp from a router.

      This is great! I had a 1.02 AnySim Unlocked JB. I am now at 1.4. Does anyone know if I can do the TZones hack on a 1.4?

      Just pwned my 1.1.4 ziphone iphone and its worked great, no problems at all. Just syncing all my contacts and music back as we speak.

      Quite an easy process too, although more complex than ziphone for the novice!

      Were you able to upgrade the bootloader back to 4.6 or did you just leave it at 3.9? It's good to hear that it worked for you!

      I was able to PWN my iPhone yesterday with minimal issues. Was previously on a 1.1.3 devteam Activated/JailBroken/UnLocked iPhone (the Installer download version) but, battery life seemed to be getting shorter and shorter. I was planning to restore anyway to see if it would help with battery life so I used the PwnageTool and unfortunately it failed the first few times. Per other recommendations in this thread, I put the iPhone into recovery mode and first restored it to "official" 1.1.4 through iTunes. After this it was at the Connect to iTunes prompt so I put it back into recovery mode and re-ran PwnageTool and all went according to Cash's guide from that point.

      So far battery life has been much improved but, this is more likely the result of the restore rather than the new PWNage method. For now I am staying on 1.1.4 PWN'd until 2.0 is a little further along.

      Thanks to all.

      I have read in many cases that people have successfully upgraded their 3.9BL (downgraded by ZiPhone) back up to 4.6BL, so if you're looking to do this, go right ahead. it works

      tried 2.0 via pwned, very buggy - like freezes - slow - and exchange not working very well issues like contacts not syncing fully, email issues(would love some feedback on that if anyone tried). i know its beta.

      im on 1.1.4 now, fully fonctional jailb, act and unlocked on 4.6bb.

      ready to go back and test 2.0 once they fix the exchange feature ( which is really the one i was waiting for) , and the installe going on

      Thanks to all the people who are working on making the iphone a better....iphone
