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

      Ok guys, I think I may be the first failed attempt

      followed instructions, i'm on 1.1.4 unlocked, T-mobile, 1.1.1 OTB. loaded 1.1.4 ipsw file on pwnage, started ipwner, get success message says ipwner has started, text runs on iphone screen, then after a line of text at the bottom of the screen saying something along the lines of tubro autopwn launch, text appears under it saying failed to mount disk ds01 or something along those lines. phone reboots to an apple image no pwnage! a look at the pwnage tool and it just stays on "successfully started pwning your iphone/ipod touch" never completes. any ideas?

      Hi all,
      Just wondering whether someone can help me with a question before I go ahead an unlock my new phone using Pwner.
      I am wondering whether the silver apple boot picture will remain after using pwner, or does it permanently change to the pineapple?

      I believe that Ziphone doesn't change it, is this correct?

      Many thanks!!

      If I try to create a custom ipsw and select enable baseband update, it asks for the 3.9 and 4.6 bootloader images, but doesn't tell me where to get them. So how do we do this?

      For those who are wondering, you can stop the custom images under this section also.

      I assume that by no custom images this includes the apple image shown when the phone boots up?
      Cheers!

      Hi all,

      Sounds great! I have an original 1.0.2 firmware 3.9 bootloader phone which is currently unlocked using ziphone, everything is working great.

      Can I use pwnage to upgrade my bootloader to 4.6 so google map positioning will work?

      If not what is the advantage of using pwnage over ziphone if everything is working fine already
