    Default 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.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZN92GCdb_U"]YouTube - iPlus and iLiberty+ get PWNED[/ame]




    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!

    you guys know what this means?? we can use this tool to input installer/cydia into the fw 2.0 and that means we can probably unlock it using an anysim like ui.. and that means we can also download the Music store/app store back onto the phones.. meaning WE CAN HAVE A COMPLETE 2.0 FW!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is pretty cool, but I think the ultimate tool would be one that can capture the current state of your iPhone to a firmware restore... as in it includes all the applications you currently have installed, your summerboard and customize themes, etc... so that when you restore your back to where you were before.
