  • 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

      I read the previous post saying that the BL files were included in the Pwnage tool I googled it and it took me to a bunch of torrent sites. So if the file is included in the tool can you please point me to how to locate it.

      i don't think it's included in the tool. you do have to download it separately. you can find the link on iclarified.com and its instructions on pwnage

      Bootloader Version

      If you found yourself recently downgraded to 3.9BL (without your consent) by running buggy software, the iPhone Dev Team comes to the rescue. With BootNeuter you can freely go back and forth between bootloader versions. Now you can truly restore your iPhone to its out-of-box condition.
      Found that at http://wikee.iphwn.org/sgold_bootrom:bootneuter

      not sure if it answers your question.

      Can I use this program to update a 1.11 iPhone. The instructions say 1.13 and 1.14 only...
      Has anybody managed to update a 1.11 to higher firmware versions? How did you do it?

      According to the Dev teams website you can update the BL from 3.9-4.6, even if you used ziphone.

      I just PWNED my phone and now my ATT account is not detected at all. Does anyone have an idea how to get it back? When making my firmwares I set it to activate but not unlock.

      if you restore to a pwned 2.0 and sync (create a backup) YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REUSE THIS BACKUP unless you stay on 2.0. (1.1.4 will not load it)

      the guide doesn't mention what kind of status the phone should be in before you start.
      by phone is currently 113 unlocked, do i restore through itunes first, then pwn the phone, or can I just pwn the phone right from the pwnage tool, and keep all my data/apps?

      pwned to 2.0, however I assume this isn't jailbroken?

      Active Sync worked but took a little time to sync Calendar and Contacts. Emails came in quite quick though. No reason for me to stay on 2.0 if it's not jailbroken however.

      hmm.. well I've done it multiple times.. followed it step by step.. and it didnt work.. everytime..i know i did everything right.. first of all it would give me the message.. " successfully being pwned".. instead of "successfully pwned".. when it was over.. it rebooted with the custom image.. but didnt go back into recovery mode.. and it wont allow me to put the custom firmware on through itunes.. i spent hours on this.. and now disappointed..o and i am using mac os x 10.4.11

      it's an option when you're building your custom firmware whether to jailbreak or not, so it all depends on whether you checked that option, however 2.0 does not have installer, if that's how you're determining whether your phone's jailbroken or not

      Mine reboots normally... not back into recovery mode. This is OK. After this you can build your custom firmware and put the phone into recovery mode manually again (NOT DFU). Then option+click your custom firmware.

      I ended up doing a full restore to 1.1.4 after failing my first attempt. So you may want to try this.

      what type of error message are you getting when you try to restore with the custom firmware?

      For anyone wondering it looks as though doing a full restore in iTunes with original firmware locks the phone back down and removes PWNAGE.

      I'm on AT&T...Just finished restoring to custom firmware and phone re-booted with no service... I'm doing a reset network setting to see if this fixes the issue.....
      Update: Stuck on spinning wheel while resetting... then FROZE... hard reset...still no service.

      Went into BootNeuter and checked "Unlock" and reflashed the baseband to see if THAT would get me service... did a reboot after baseband flash FINALLY got service!! :-)

      Yes this is how i was determining if it was jailbroken or not. Please forgive my noobness but how exactly do I get installer loaded? I've jailbroken my phone so many different ways I do not remember the method to get that installed (if possible)

      you can't, unfortunately, not with 2.0 as installer isn't compatible. but pwnage will put it on your phone if it's at 1.1.4
