  • 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

      Are we able to use 1.1.3 on this? Cause for the T-Mobile edge, the easiest way to do it is on 1.1.3 is with the TZones hack.
      Unless someone wants to PM me how to get it running on 1.1.4, that would be great

      Oh dear. Ran the ipwner on my ipod touch and it says it was flashing then rebooting. The screen went blank (like it was turned off). Nothing happened so I left it for about 30 minutes (just in case) and now nothing. I tried to turn it on and I am unable to.

      The flashing stated it worked and was justing rebooting. I have even tried to disconnect and reconnect it to the dock but nothing. I am starting to worry here! Please help anybody.

      Any ideas? Please HELP!

      Calm Down. Plug the phone into your USB -- Open iTunes -- and Run it in DFU Restore Mode. Done.

      Unlocking and bootneutering fixed the no reception problem for me too on O2 UK.

      so if I customized, 1.1.4 with pwn, do I need Boot & Unlock it before I put 1.2b or I do that after 1.2b? all I need to do is Upgrade or do I need to restore 1.2b?

      even though you dont see anything, hold the sleep and home button on the iphone for 20 sec and let go of the top button keep holding the bottom button and wait for itunes to recognize it and then restore and try again hope this helps....

      Do we know if this works on 1.1.3?
      Or do we have to use 1.1.4?

      Are you an ATT customer? Can we use 1.2 on ATT accounts? Does everything work with 1.2?

      As I said in my post it will not turn on. I have tried to connect it to my Mac via USB but it will not recognize it because it is not powered. I have also tried holding both buttons and no response whatsoever.

      let not get to exited with PWNED just yet. it is certainly a promising concept but its 1.0 has to undergo some improvements.

      What does Pwned do that others dont?

      1) unlocks 2.0 (yes, but 1.1.4 baseband and its still buggy)
      2) ???????

      Pwned will allow in the near future (either throgh the tool itself or through auxiliary tools the complete customisation of ipsw's. Nowadays having a Pwend 1.1.4 is like having the original + 2 mins of iLiberty (no big use)

      P.s if you happen to sync your iPhone on 2.0 it will overwrite your itunes backup and you will not be able to re use it or recover it in time machine. bear that in mind
