  • 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

      Day two of my pwnd (1.2/2.0) experience.

      My iphone: OTB - 1.1.4/4.6 - 8gig - week 80 (i think)

      I mainly wanted to really see if this iphone 2.0 with exchange capabilities works in our company's business environment.

      Quirks (mainly due to beta stage of the 2.0... I hope!):
      Had to reboot the phone twice because of lockups.
      Intermittent slowdowns (some freezing lasting 30 secs) in all areas of the phone.
      All the apps worked that was included in the 2.0 beta. Again, just minor lockups.

      Experienced several times user lockouts on my Active Directory due to excessive retries by the iphone to log in with exchange server. (beta)

      I got "**Orphaned mailbox..." in my inbox when connectivity with exchange server is lost. (sucks bad since I cant read the content when that happens) When the connection is restored, the mail is all back.

      My voicemail recording from our voip tel system - which are wav files are working great. They are left as email which has the wav as attachments. I can now play them back!

      Calendar system works somewhat but I didn't know if the events that I edited and saved was truly on the exchange server. A little color dot appears to indicate which mail acct it was posted to, but that doesn't mean anything since checking back on my calendar/outlook the event was not even there. After a couple of minutes i did see that it was on outlook. Cool. I just wished there was a button to immediately sync, and return a success or failure. From outlook to iphone, syncing does occur but i had to use the refresh button on the iphone mail app to get the current calendar updates.

      There's a 'new mail' on/off feature in the sound area. I wish I can change the sound but it does work.

      SMS txting works but when you jump from another app to respond to a message... again locks up and kicks out to the home screen. Afterward, seems to work fine.

      International supports 18 languages so far. This means that your icons doesn't have to be labeled in english. Keyboard support for most of the 18 is supplied.

      Overall, I think that it will be worth waiting for when the bugs and freezes are knocked out.

      Thanks dev team for the update abilities.

      Apple... well... you have my money already. What else can I say?

You don't gain ANYTHING with pwnage except pineapple logo which you are STUCK with and have to re-load all your apps again and end up right back where you started.

      Again... everyone should really just sit tight with their current setup until 1.2/2.0 is released or you already had plans to upgrade and rejailbreak anyway.
      Except for the fact that if you take it in and apple sees that your originally 4.6BL phone now has 3.9 there goes your warranty... It was worth it for the piece of mind. Also, pwnage is reversible, and the pineapple is completely optional. I believe you can unpwn your bootloader by restoring with a unmodified apple firmware in itunes...

      2.0 works great. Love the google map tracking feature. The tracking feature is the biggest upgrade of the firmware. I have not noticed any problems with the loading speeds. Trying to work on a custom boot screen now.

Well imagine pwnage to 1.1.4... bootneuter.. and upgrade to 1.2 (official) and unlock and Installer should still be in tact.

      Someone please confirm or deny these allegations
      well not really cuz I still had to use 112jb thing, the pre-requisite was to have octo-prep ... I guess this ok2prep package was just a set of commands that made it so that some os files don't get updated They were still just learning bak then.. now they have a broader understanding of wut their doin, so we get this more advanced tools.. Take unlockin 4 ex ( it has literally become child's play for them).. All u gotta do is to look for some bits of info in da bb , look 4 "x" pattern then look @ the last 4 bits of that code n change them all 2 "zero" n u got ursel an unlocked bb .. jb is diff tho as every fw vr is diff.. u get the idea.. Now idk wut they do when they jb the fons os...wut files do they replace?

      The only reason im gon use pwned when it comes out for windows is cuz of the ability to load up cuztom boot logos...(as i read u'll end up where u started with pwned, yup i read all the 20 sometn pages too ) i've been waitin for that for so long.. Now the question is how the **** do i creat my own images ? i heard they were encrypted with some "8900 decrypter" or w.e for a mac... Now on windows man.. Somebody make an app that save images with the *.img2 extention.. shouldnt b 2 hard

      Edit: i found a tool
      here

      UPDATE for Legit AT&T iPhone Users:

      read over at hackint0sh that if you are using a legit AT&T iPhone, then you can pwn your iPhone without adding BootNeuter (or anything else). If you uncheck all the options (except if you want the custom pics of course) the PwnageTool will jailbreak and add Installer.app to your iPhone.

      Hope this helps!


      Note: I didnt see this in this thread already so if its in here, sorry for the re-post

      As Soon as possible, it would be nice if someone would post a guide on how to customize the 'Custom Firmware' given to us by the PwnageTool. Boot Image, DFU Image, System Images etc. Please A.S.A.P.

      if you dont want the pineapple logo, uncheck "use DevTeam Custom Picture" when you use the ipsw builder. I pwned my phone last night and my logo's are all the original apple ones.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks for trying but we are trying to figure out how to change that boot image not just take it off.

      Hey got it yipppeeeeee. What I was not informed of was that I should have the latest update for my Iphone before attempting this. Just used the same image I downloaded form here by doing a restore from recovery mode. It wiped my Iphone cleaned, but I had backed up my contacts which always are a hassle, installing the programs again is just fun, and now with more critical mind than before. Then I started form the top of the guide and caCHing it worked...... yes yes yes

      I have both a 1.2 custom and a 1.1.4 custom built already. If I want to see the 1.2 in action and want to go back to 1.1.4, is it easy to downgrade the custom firmwares?

      I've been doing it all day. Tried 2.0 didn't like it went back to 1.1.4. Saw something in 2.0 that I wanted to try didn't work out, back to 1.1.4. Saw something else in 2.0, also didn't work back to 1.1.4 and stayed JB the whole time.

      You DEVs kick @ss!
