  • [Video] PwnageTool & the iPad
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnQ7nqWYHAQ&hd=1]YouTube - Pwnagetool Preview[/ame]


    MuscleNerd has tweeted a nice little "nerd alert", which showcases a demo video of the iPad getting a custom firmware restore using PwnageTool.

    Basically, PwnageTool uses geohot's limera1n exploit to convince iTunes to restore a custom firmware. In fact, in this video demo, MuscleNerd shows that you can even restore an iPad to pre-JB 3.2.2 from PwnageTool.

    Stay tuned, as PwnageTool is set to release this Sunday. Once again, a "sunday funday"! If MuscleNerd posts a video for the AppleTV device, I'll add it to this post.

      Say you stupidly updated to 4.1 on your 3G and need an unlock. Dowgrading won't affect your baseband right? Is there a way to get the baseband down?

      Fuzzyband at least used to work for iPhone and iPhone 3G but I am uninformed as to it's current status.

      I'm eager to see what a jail broken Apple tV will be able to do.

      I don't believe so. I have yet to encounter a program that will allow the baseband to be downgraded on a 3G previously or currently running iOS4.

      Umm... I'm confused. I have an iphone 4 running 4.1 that I bought in the states on AT&T - I'm back in the UK and obivously still want to use my iphone and throw away my blackberry.

      Will this Pwnagetool be able to carrier unlock my phone and jailbreak it?

      Pwnagetool only preserves the baseband, it does not perform the unlock itself. Unless you used TU and kept your bb at 1.59.00 when updating to 4.1, there is no unlock for you currently. There should be one for you once iOS 4.2 drops next month, but nothing is certain as of yet.
