  • 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

      HELP! I did everything up to the point of restoring my iphone in iTunes. When I go to restore my iphone it doesn't give me the option of locating the file. It just started restoring the standard one, I don't know how to tell it to install the custom ipsw file.


      Anyone?

      There's a plist file you can edit to get rid of that message. It shouldn't stop you from making calls though.

      So if anyone cares...the 2.0 firmware file shows up as "Unkown file" in the tool.

      No big surprise as I am sure an update is needed to the program with the newest ipsw. Cant wait for some updates!

      Hi everyone, I need help. I downloaded the firmware 1.1.4 and change the Restore.plist into Restore.ipsw. When i click browse .ipsw, this error showed up.

      2008-07-15 20:40:15 - Loaded .ipsw file from '/Users/donbui/Desktop/Restore.ipsw'.
      2008-07-15 20:40:15 - Can't recognize version of .ipsw file.

      What did i do wrong? I recently unlocked my 1.1.4 with Ziphone. Decided to restore it to original because i can't get my wifi to work. After restoring it, I found out that the original setting still gives me problems with wifi. Hopefully the 2.0 firmware will make a difference.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated. I tried to search the thread for similar problem but had to give up after 15 pages.

      Thanks Again,
      Don

      When it comes to your wifi issue i had the same problem they way i fixed it is by restoring as new instead of restoring under your old name i know you lose your contacts and all that so write them down before restoring. Hope this helps....

      thanks, it's going to be horrible if i have to restore to original because of the number of contacts that i have. It will have to be the last resort. Any other advices or instructions as to how i can get the ipsw to be recognized by ipwn.

      I tried again to download a different firmware 1.1.4 from another source as well as the one from this forum but still receive the same messages.
