  • 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

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

      was just wondering, I am currently using 1.1.3 unlocked using ziphone. My phone was originally 1.0.2 and so currently the locate me feature on google maps does not work.

      Would using this solve this problem or are then any other solutions other than using navizon gps app?

      That sucks. Do you know if the $5.99 TZones hack works on 1.1.4?

      I found a new glitch on my phone. When I put the phone on silent everything goes silent. If I am on the phone I can not hear the person nor can they hear me. Speaker phone will not activate at all and head phones do not work. When phone is off of silent everything works fine.

      So I am guessing the iPod Touch owners are out of luck here? No custom firmware for the iPod Touch owners? Any insight on this?

      its not exploiting a loaded firmware, it is loading a already freed firmware. It uses itunes restore (safe) to load the firmware.
