  • 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'm asking about the error message in itunes because i've seen a few threads on people getting an error message in itunes, i believe it either started with 16xx or 6xxx. either way, that means itunes doesn't like the usb port you're using and you should switch. i hope that helps
      thanks alot.. I was really bothered about the bootneuter..

      Actually I believe its not the dev team that is releasing it. Its their "friend" and he said it will be days to weeks. So I am looking at alternatives.

      I have my iphone on 1.1.3 and it is working great, no problems. Is it worth doing a restore and using this right now? it would take a while to reinstall all my apps. so i wanted to make sure it would be worth it.

      Thanks!!

      no, there's no reason to do this unless you were planning on restoring and rejailbreaking your phone, or if you're at 3.6BL and wish to upgrade to 4.6BL although that's not recommended unless you fully understand what you're doing

      yes you're right. i don't think it will take weeks.

      it'll probably be easier and safer for you to find a mac and run pwnage rather than trying to find an unofficial windows version of it

      Yes... that would be expected for a beta firmware released to developers. It's meant for testing new features as well as debugging SDK generated apps. Pointless to install something that may crash (which it does quite often) and with out Installer support. I'm using a donated iPhone for testing my SDK app... that's all.

      could there possibly be any relation to this and apple releasing a itunes update at the same time ?

      just to clarify...

      do i have to install BootNeuter and Unlock my baseboard if I want service on AT&T ?

      the Help for the PwnageTool says:

      "Unlock baseband - This will enable the unlocking of the baseband to all networks using a custom "software unlock" process. This should be used if you plan to use a SIM card from a carrier other than the one provided by your original iPhone carrier."

      but i cannot get service on AT&T...

      thanks

      there were a few people with the same problem as you and solved it by installing bootneuter and unlocking their phones...

      Unlocking and bootneutering fixed the no reception problem for me. Maybe down the road we won't have to unlock but for now that was the only way I could get service.

      personally I don't care about much of this except having custom load images on the phone? I have a sweet Vista setup and I would love to see a Windows Icon show versus apple. Anyone have screenshots of doing this yet or a guide?
