  • 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

      For those who are wondering, you can stop the custom images under this section also.
      Just noticed you'd already asked this!!
      Any joy yet as to where they are?

      Thanks for the help Cash. I looked at the guide again to make sure i'm putting the phone into restore mode correctly. Plugged the iPhone in, held down power and home button, released power button as soon as apple logo popped up, got connect to itunes screen, ran pwnage tool, loaded 1.1.4 ipsw, ran ipwner, after lines of text and "turbo autopwn launch starting" I get the "mount disk0s1 failed" message and phone reboots every time, even after I did a fresh restore on the phone. Ideas?

      EDIT: GOT IT! did another restore and it worked! thanks for the help guys!

      I doubt it considering I just used the same port to pwn my iPod Touch. And it looks like the iPhone is taking a trip to the apple store. I think i edited my post too soon. As the bootloader was being flashed, the phone turned off. unfortunately I looked away from it as soon as the process started working. The phone will not turn on no matter what I do

      If not what is the advantage of using pwnage over ziphone if everything is working fine already
      3.9/4.6 bootloader has nothing to do with google map positioning. That's a function of the baseband. There is no good reason why you have to be on 4.6 bootloader.

      well now that im on 2.0 can anyone post any apps made with the sdk as none of the current ones work with 2.0

      It's great and easy to use. It really is.

      But....

      How can I add my own extra's/payloads into the IPSW so it will auto install my apps etc that I use often?
      Thought this was a point to cooking your own firmware like WM.

      Two questions:

      Once your bootloader has been pwnd, is there any way to undo it and completely re-virginize, just in case?

      And once your iPhone has been pwnd, will you always have to restore to custom firmware, or will you be able to use the update button with custom firmware, and avoid losing all your apps/etc?

      Hey guys,
      Did the successful pwnage and upgrade to 2.0
      My prob is 'installer' is missing..
      Is this normal? or if not, where can I find it?
      HUGE KUDOS to the dev team :-)

      no installer yet on 2.0, compile / load apps with xcode and the sdk.

      1.1.4 pwnd has installer

      I believe that you unhide that through settings after you have set a password up for parental controls or something like that. Not got it myself to explain fully but i remember seeing it on a video of 2.0 somewhere.

      Hope this helps, if not i have no idea.

      I have found both bootloader files, just google for pwnagetool.app, they are included in this pwnage tool!
