  • 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.

    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

      Do you mean you canNOT make a custom firmware? Did you own your phone? You need to own it first

      did you happen to have accidentally restored with an iPod touch firmware rather than iPhone? Make sure you put it into DFU mode to restore, and not recovery

      As i am extremely happy that there is yet another method to jailbreak and unlock the iphone, i would like to use the only useful option that pwnage has right now, and that is use the beta 2.0, so can somebody please tell what the hell is going on, what's the reason behind pwnage failing everytime i try to make an custom ipsw?
      Thank you

      Hi

      This question may have been asked before, i have tried to search but no luck.

      I have 1.1.4 jailbroken/activated/unlocked by Ziphone.

      I have read that iphone need to be pwned before restoring it to custom 2.0.

      The things i need to know are.

      Will i have to create restore 1.1.4 ipsw and then restore my iphone or i can just try and upgrade.

      I have also tried to upgrade 2.0 but it get stuck in itunes preparing iphone for restore.

      Once i do the upgrade will i be able to use other networks with it.

      Can some one please provide with info as to how to do i begin.

      I have all the tools needed.

      thanks

      I have read this whole thread before trying and decided to try it this AM to update to 1.1.4, not 1.2. Everything was going great until I was restoring with the custom custom firmware I created. I am getting that error message, error 1604, saying that it cannot restore. I did install the latest version on itunes before doing this. Could that be the issue and I need to downgrade itunes first or is it something else I did or didn't do? Thanks.
