Thread: How to modify firmware.

  1. #1
    Default How to modify firmware.
    Which tools modifying firmware should I use to modify to follow what I want to have in iPhone?
    Thanks.

    you can't really "modify the firmware". you can jailbreak your device using PwnageTool (or WinPwn) and then change system files, but that's about it I'd say

    Seriously, you need to provide a little more info if you really expect people to help.
    Dirty as I wanna be!

    Sorry, I provided too less information previously. So, What I'm going to do is what I would resize partition sizing, add some programs,or something looking like Ghost file based on Windows after restoring firmware instead of installing every program again?
    Thanks

    You need to jailbreak your phone and then you can SSH into it and change system files but I wouldn't go trying to rewrite the whole thing. You just might mess up your phone beyond repair.

    Pwnage tool does exactly this, you can control partition size and add different installer packages so they come pre-installed when you restore your phone
    Everytime you dont press THANKS god kills an iPhone(so please save zee the iPhones)

    there is a windows-port of PwnageTool called WinPwn, check that out.

    I have known that this tool is able to activate,jailbreak,and unlock to WinPwn.but,I don't know whatelse it can do. so, Thanks for recommending this tool. I'm going to check it out straight away.

    well, I don't use it but I think I recall it can change the boot logo as well ... don't know about partition size, but you don't really need that anyway

    At the moment, the WinPwn 2.0.0.4 has been released already and also it can make what I would like to get in term of resizing system partition. Excellent! BUT still using FW 1.1.4 now. I'm making up my mind to upgrade. any suggestions?
    Thanks

    why not update? 2.0.1 is pretty stable as far as I can tell, it supports the appStore and the most important jailbreak-apps are ported already.

  13. #13
    What is different between FW 2.0 and FW 2.0.1? and Should we be moving on 2.0.1?
    Thanks

    well, 2.0.1 "only" contains bugfixes, but i found that it runs much much faster and more stable than 2.0, so I would advise to upgrade.

  15. #15
    So,I have upgraded to FW 2.0 already.Then,I'm gonna upgrade the mentioned version in the near future. Are there any problems with Winterboard program? I got some issues as the following link.

    don't use winterboard so I can't say anything about that.
    like I said above, I'm running 2.0.1 currently.

    Default Why did you recommend that I'm not supposed to use Winterboard?

    Have you customized FW 2.0.1 by yourself?

    depends on what you mean by "customize". I did jailbreak it, I did install third party apps, I did alter some firmware files (copy in new images, change some texts, apply some hacks ...) ...

    BlackWolf,
    Yer I am up to FW 2.0.1 so far. It is much better and faster than previous version. Have you used Winterboard app so that the theme is changed by whatever you need to change? If so, do you know how to add or change fading apple loaders?
    Thank you for your recommendation.
