  • iPhone Dev-Team Merging PwnageTool and Redsn0w Soon


    This morning, MuscleNerd (@MuscleNerd) mentioned on Twitter that the iPhone Dev-Team is looking to merge PwnageTool with redsn0w for enhanced functionality. The version of redsn0w that has this feature is not out yet but I presume it is on the way.



    The PwnageTool feature (preserving baseband) will be added in the "Extras" section of redsn0w when the time comes. This is good news for the jailbreak community because they will be able to go to one tool to suffice all their jailbreak needs. Up until this time, to preserve baseband, you would either need to use PwnageTool (OSX) or sn0wbreeze (Win). Because redsn0w is compatible on both OSX and Windows, it will be your one-stop place to ensure that your jailbreak needs are taking care of (whether you preserve baseband or not).



    Stay tuned for when the next of release of redsn0w comes out with this functionality.

    Note: This redsn0w release with these features may be available for both iOS 5 and other firmwares (4.x and below). This would require the iPhone Dev-Team to update PwnageTool for iOS 5. At this point, we can't confirm to whether the PwnageTool feature in redsn0w will be available to iOS 5 users when it is first released. This also does not mean that there will be an untethered jailbreak coming from the iPhone Dev-Team.

    There is no untethered jailbreak out for iOS 5 yet either.

    You're not able to jailbreak the iPad 2 on iOS 5 at this time, even if redsn0w (or another tool) is updated to support the public version of iOS 5.

    It is unknown whether the current redsn0w beta version will jailbreak the public iOS 5 release today or. ModMyi will keep you updated in this regard.

      seriously? or else what? we visit the site and give you a job. our advertising clicks generate dollars for the site jackass.

      you could just as easily have told the dude that you are grateful for the feedback and moved on.
      Sounds like you need to take your own advice and 'move on' because quite frankly its dumb trying to defend somebodies rude remark. There's no way to justify the way he came at josh, doesn't matter if josh appreciated the feedback it was still rude.
      Play nicely now...

      Sorry MMI I didn't mean to say that. Lol

      Really guys, does it matter? Seriously? Do you PAY for this site? and don't use the whole "I click for ads" argument, so spare us that routine. This site is provided FOR FREE, you don't have to pay for a subscription or membership etc. Everyone that comes here to complain about "grammar" or "content" are complete morons. How does complaining about a FREE INTERNET SITE improve your day? How about this, MAKE YOU'RE OWN DAMN SITE! Hire your own staff, invest your own money, search for content yourself, THEN try to complain. It's ridiculous when I come here and see people attacking the writers of this site who I'm sure don't get paid "the big bucks" to hear your childish cries. Until you have to pay to access this site, go find another way to improve the quality of your life by making yourself feel better bashing other people's mistakes and/or opinions. It's about time Tucker and other writers here point out the irony these hypocritical bashers bring in their arguments. Time to build a bridge and get over it people.

      One reason is if you want to use your iPhone on different carriers when you travel.

      Or if you just want to use it on a non-official carrier.

      Another reason is to preserve your baseband so that when you sell your phone it will have a higher value.
