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

      cuz if u restore with a stock file, then i think u would loose a jb.. well unlock will remain unless they update the bb...... It would be AWESOME! if we pwned it once n just upgrade or downgrade to any fw n keep the jb.
      When the OFFICIAL 2.0 firmware comes out you should, in theory, be able to click upgrade and retain the unlock/jailbreak. Remember back when you had to restore to 1.1.1, jailbreak, gunlock, OKTOPREP, then upgrade to 1.1.2 and like magic you still had the unlock/jailbreak? Well imagine pwnage to 1.1.4... bootneuter.. and upgrade to 1.2 (official) and unlock and Installer should still be in tact.

      Someone please confirm or deny these allegations

      If you restore stock firmware your phone becomes stock. But an update to pwnagetool will allow the creation of a patched firmware that you can restore and retain the unlock activation jailbreak etc.

      That was exacly my question, i'm actually running code that wrote on it but it is very very buggy, why would apple released such a bad, version of this beta for Dev, I don't understand. I just got home so I'll see if can mix things around. Has anybody found a better more stable version of 1.2b?

      I don't think you understand what beta versions are for. They are for bug testing and figuring out the problems. Apple released it to the Developmental group because they are there to help Develop the code. Its standard procedure.

      I had the similar issue, if you are on a legit contract then when building the custom ipsw uncheck activate. That is what worked for me, if you are not on a legit contract for the iphone then I am not sure.

      for some reason i seem to be running into a few problems - at first i didn't have service... fixed that by unlocking the baseband. then i noticed that the Mail application was not working and i couldn't sync with iTunes. i fixed that by doing a complete restore and then repeating the PWNing process.

      So now my mail app is working but for some reason my hotmail account is not there anymore but my .mac and Gmail accounts are so i guess that OK i can just add it back in. I guess the big problem now is i cannot sync my music, it has transfered a few albums but not the rest.... i'm really not sure why i seem the be having these problems it sounds like it works great for most people.

      anyone have any ideas about the music syncing problem?

      my noob question is, does this fix the 4.6 downgrade from Ziphone?/
    1. Poseidon79's Avatar
      Poseidon79 -
      The downgrade from 4.6 to 3.9 isn't anything that needs to be "fixed". There is no reason to go back up to 4.6... ever. There is also no reason to restore your phone and re-jailbreak and unlock with pwnage if you're happy with your current set-up. You don't gain ANYTHING with pwnage except pineapple logo which you are STUCK with and have to re-load all your apps again and end up right back where you started.

      Again... everyone should really just sit tight with their current setup until 1.2/2.0 is released or you already had plans to upgrade and rejailbreak anyway.
