  • The Next Step in Modding - IPSWTool
    With the release of PwnageTool we now have the ability to load unsigned firmware onto the iPhone / iPod Touch allowing for great advances in taking control. This is the next step created by theiphoneproject.

    We are happy to announce that IPSWTool is coming to your computer soon. Video below!

    IPSWTool is the next step of building custom firmwares with the style and grace of iLiberty+. With IPSWTool you can create custom firmwares packaged will all the goodies already downloaded and inserted into the IPSW. These custom firmwares can be restored onto iPhones and iTouchs that have already been Pwnd. As you can see from the video / screenshots there are already some great application compilations to install with the BigBoss and CrashX AppPacks. Furthermore there are the thing you'd expect: BSD subsystem, SSH, Installer, and of course Cydia.

    Another very cool feature that we hope is implemented in the final release of IPSWTool is the ability to change the OS and Media partition sizes. Why? It would allow you to restore a firmware onto your iPhone / iPod Touch that already has plenty of free space for all the cool Applications that have been developed; getting rid of the need to move your Applications, Ringtones, etc around.

    Look forward to this great Application!

      The IPSW Tool works great!!!! but I want to know if 1.2 (5A147p) custom firmware will be released.

      is there a way to put all the files in to restore to that firmware.
      5A240d isn't expired can I restore to it regularly or have to use PWNAGE Tool to make a custom firmware.

      I had 5A240d but Itunes couldn't Sync all my music a pop up came up for 2.0 (5A240d) saying your iphone software is to old go to summary tab and get the latest iphone software. Can I disable that
      Wi?ll it have PSOD for the regular one

      1.2 (5A147p) released on torrents

      for use with PWNAGE Tool.

      The 5A225c and 5A240d are on torrent websites without the itunes store or appstore

      where do I go on itunes to iphone summary tab and then latest software update. how can you disable it from being updated.

      What happens to the iphone build when their expired

      I'm on 5A240d it says some music can't be synced your iphone software is to old get the latest software update i'm on 2.0 (5A240d) bb 04.04.05 and it says that

      what does it mean when you decrypt a firmware


      5A255c and 5A240d are out on torrents any luck on 1.2 5A147p

      comes with itunes store and appstore
