  • 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've made a custom version of 1.14 useing pwnage tool, and it seems to work fine, but for some reason I can't see either Installer.app or BootNeuter.app both of which ARE in fact installed on the phone. Using iFuntastic I'm able to get it to display all the installed apps, but it has it's own problems (the iFuntastic program that is). So is there any other way to make Installer.app and BootNeuter.app to show on the iPhone? And I read somewhere else in the thread somebody answered that their question had already been answered, but didn't give a reference to where. I mean with a 43 page long thread it would be nice to be given maybe a page number, or something like that. Thanks everyone!

      have you tried changing the property to 755 or 777 as long with all other applications??? thats worked for me

      thanks
      yes you can. You need to use the orginal 1.1.4 ipsw that apple gave out not the custom one. That will get rid of pwnage too so if u want to do a custom ispw then you have to pwn your phone again

      ttocash122 dman great minds do think alike. Only downside I right now viewing mmi on my iPhone. So I can't only type so fast my dam t3 connection is down so can't use my Internet

      Please, i already asked for help but no one seems to know what should i do.
      When i'm trying to create a custom 2.0 firmware (5A225c) i get an error, specifically this error ( Detaching root filesystem from '/Volumes/Vail5a225c.iPhoneDeveloperBundle'.
      2008-04-14 13:59:24 - FAIL)
      This is what i tried to do : go to finder, "go to folder" /volumes/ deleted the volume, tried again and it failed.
      So i deleted PWN, download it again, and nothing..same error. So what am i to do? Why doesn't PWN work? any idea? nobody else has encountered this?
      I have no problem pwning my phone, or building an custom 1.1.4, just the 2.0 beta
      Please help, at this point any advice would be great because this is driving me crazy,
      Thanks,

      you might have bad version of the beta or could be corrupt. I would try dl the firmware again and see if same error pops up. Cause if 1.1.4 worked fine then it has to deal with the copy u have with the beta. Personally why don't you wait until the release of the real 2.0 is release by apple 2.0 is not all that.

      Everyone thinks that us computer programmers can solve problems in minutes and also think we dont have a personal life. At this time he's working out a bug with you dl it to your computer put the file somewhere corrupts itself. I rather fix the bugs so I dont have people complaining about and emailing me say I dl your app and it doesn't work or dont install right. Not everything is just a simple fix sometimes one problem you have effect something else that wasn't wrong before. That's why progammers know that instead of it being called computer programming it should be called computer debugging. We spend more time debugging then programming. But the program is all set and waiting for update would be useless since all you need is a update code in the application its self.

      I did download the firmware several times, even dif. computers, but no dice, everytime it's the same.I know 2.0beta sucks, someone shared a pwned copy with me, that's not the point, it's the fact that pwnage does not work for me w./2.0b, and i have no idea why.
      I know you're going to say that it might be my macbook, but i don't think that's the case since, like you said, it works with 1.1.4, and i have no problems with the o.s. or the notebook itself.
      I just want to make it work 'cause it's really annoying

      It would be news to me if one of the guys in the computer department had a life. Actually that is one of the main reasons I switched to an EE major. Its cause they all could literally be happy with a pizza under the door and no outside communication.
