    Default [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.

    Does this mean I'll be able to downgrade my 3G to 3.x without SHSH saved? That would be great as the 3Gs really lag on iOS4.

    Um, you don't need SHSH's stored for the 3G. Just go into recovery mode and then option/restore to 3.1.3. You may get an iTunes error at the end of the restore. Once you get the error, use TU to kick it out of recovery and you're all set. Did two 3G yesterday with this method. Quick and easy.

    Really? Will that in any way affect my JB or unlock? I don't think it will change the BB. What JB method did you use on 3.1.3?

    I was under the impression that you're unable to restore to a firmware that apple isn't signing anymore.

    Do you have a 3G or 3gs? If you have 3gs and want to downgrade you have to have shsh saved even when using Pwnage Tool.
    You can use Blackra1n to jailbreak 3.1.3 if you need it. If you use Pwnage Tool to downgrade then you won't need Blackra1n because Pwnage Tool will jailbreak it for you.

    You only have to worry about Apple signing FW for the 3GS and iP4, not the 3G. You can use Spirit or Redsn0w to JB, or revert to 3.1.2 and use blackra1n and just reinstall ultrasn0w for your unlock.

    Just out of curiosity, what's the significant difference between 3G and 3GS as far as firmware signing goes?

    Will Pwnage Tool be available for Windows because it's notoriously been a MAC only program? I have always wanted to add a custom firmware to my iPhone(if this version does iP4 as well as iPad) but I don't own a MAC.

    Also, I'm a Microsoft developer so I have no use for a MAC for home or business use so save your flames and trolling. My motherboard is Hackintosh compatible but I would rather have a real MAC. I may convert it one of these days though.

    Apple did start signing firmware for the 3G when they released 4.0.

    Or you could do what I do, which is Run a OSX installation in Virtual Box. I simply use PwnageTool on my virtual Mac to create the firmware, then send the firmware to the Windows side for installation to my iPhone 3GS. Easy as Pie.

    I've done two dozen or more 3G iPhones in the past month (prior to limera1n) to either 3.1.x or 4.0.x so they could be JB without an issue. I even did an Apple refurbished 4.1 back to 3.1.3 without issue. So I've encountered zero issues. I know for a fact not all of them were previously jailbroken. So I'm not sure how that relates to what you're saying but I do tons of phones a month and haven't encountered 3G issues.

    Just sayin.......

    Yeah, there's no worries for jailbreaks of any iOS on the 3G, I was just pointin out that they did in fact start signing them for some strange reason.
