  • 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

    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

      Any ideas on how to get my Modded Customize app to change the carrier logo? I have an AT&T iphone, Jailbroken with ZiPhone and have used all the 1.1.4 tweaks from Spazio.net to install apps like customize and summerboard to work for my phone. Everything works as it is supposed to except the Carrier Logo will not change. I've tried many different things to no avail. Any ideas???

      Thanks

      As far as i know the carrier logo function doesn't work in customize in 1.1.4 (maybe 1.1.3 as well). you need to manually change it by ssh'ing into your phone

      Well if this ever comes out for Windows I hope someone will do a walk thru on how to use it on an already jailbroken 1.1.4 and when we restore we loose all the apps we have put in? That sux.

      r.d.Wilson,
      If you install the app "Make It Mine" and change the carrier name to "iPod" then your carrier image will change to the one that you select through customize

      I have gotten customize to work by SSH'ing into the phone and then opening Putty and starting the app. from the command prompt. When it opens on the phone, make your changes through the interface on the phone. When you have made all of the changes, then exit out of the program through Putty and respring. That should do the trick. It does for me.

      For those salivating for the Win release, I hope you are not going to be disappointed. There really is nothing you will gain other than bragging rights. The one exception might be for those that write their own progams and apps.

      The Pwnage Tool has excellent potential for the future. Congrats to the devs for their hard work. As for now, it's really not that big of a deal. The iPhone doesn't work any better. It is just a first step in preparing for the future. You aren't missing out on any features. In fact, you are ahead in two ways. First, you are ahead in not having to reinstall all of your 3rd party apps. Second, you "should be" reading and learning from the mistakes and experiences of the mac users. And you MIGHT be ahead in case there are minor bug fixes that get taken care of before the win release.

      For the vast majority, there's almost nothing you do with a pwnd iphone that you can't do with a z'modded phone. I understand the idea of wanting all the tools available. It's just kinda silly to make a big deal out of it at this point.

      If i installed 2.0 on my iPhone would i be able to get all my contacts and settings back from the backup that itunes creates or would i have to start from scratch and re-enter everything?

      Are you backing up your contacts to a contacts program on your computer? mine backs up to windows mail. Check your itunes settings.

      Pwnage for windows is going to be release very very soon if not tonight at least by sunday. Hes working very hard on something that has no source code for it cause its locked up at Fort Knox vault that Apple has for there source codes.

      All good things come to all those who wait. Plus I rather have a bug free application then something thats going to give me the circle of death. Give the man some credit for god sake. He has ported Pwnage at a quick pace for us using windows. Shot I wish he wouldnt of took time off the LinuxiPhone project. I love all my linux and unix systems better then windows. Im not buying a copy of Mac OS just to use Pwnage. I have to wait just like everyone else and sorta like you got to the site 5 times a day just to see some updates. But if theres something big to reveal I think he would of put it up.

      I love linux too, but I don't have anything to run it sadly... I must have a windows machine and I don't have a dual core so I can't use the parallel type virtualization.

      *** After many hours of searching I found that simply re-downloading the PwnageTool fixed this.
      I would just like to confirm that I had this problem and re-downloading the file also worked for me (to my surprise actually).

      Originally the file was on a windows share which I copied over to the MAC, redownloading directly from the MAC seemed to fix it, wierd?
