    Why wouldn't you suggest using the original Pwnage tool? This post is for mac's and seeing as Pwnage works just as well I would recommend using Expert mode in Pwnage instead of QuickPwn or WinPwn.

    For those who don't like the Pineapple or the Russian Steve, right-click on your QuickPwn icon and select "Show Package Contents". Go to Contents -> Resources.

    The Pineapple is called "logo.png" and the Russian Steve is called "recovery.png"

    You can replace them with your own PNGs (under compatible png formats of course) but keep the names the same.

    Eurisko: Does this mean that I need the replace the logos with the original apple versions in order to keep them? Or is there a way to just leave them alone?

    Yes you'd have to get copies of the originals, and unfortunately you'd have to get a snapshot of them to do so.

    There should be a simple preference pane with options like
    • Custom Boot Logo's On/Off
    • Cydia On/Off
    • Installer On/Off

    Surely that wouldn't be hard to add? Or even just modifications to a .pref file if that's the best on offer.

    Seem to have misunderstood 'unlock' and 'jailbreak' - have used quickpwn, thinking I would then be able to use another carrier (Orange) rather than O2 (Apple Uk's favoured cellphone carrier).

    Is there currently a way of doing this via OS X?
    or might there be a method in development?...

    I like the part that says this is for noobs and hasty people and the devs were worried about server overload. Speaking of hasty, winpwn got this many replies in the first hour.

    Then YOU need to use PwnageTool. That is the program for people who want options. How many programs do you need that do the exact same thing?
    Hmm...

    If PwnageTool could do a pwn without having to restore the iPhone - ie it pwned directly within the program, then that would be the tool of choice.

    Basically, if I want to update to the latest firmware the second it is released, then pwn my phone again, I don't want to have to erase all data, pwn and then restore from a backup, what's the point in that?!

    As for fixing wifi... Just a thought, but did you originally unlock a 1.1.4 iphone with ziPhone? This could be a reason why wifi isn't working. Go to network settings and check the mac address and make sure it is not: 00:5a:49:42:52:49. If it is, it may need to be repaired with the iLiberty+ mac fix payload.
    I have done the full restore as a new phone (and as backup) using stock firmware and custom. Still nothing

    Mine's been unlocked since 1.1.1 (before the one click jailbreak methods came out). I did use ziPhone to unlock it when upgrading to 1.1.4 but my mac address for wifi is 00:1F:5B:4F:F8:BB. It's odd sometimes its greyed out, sometimes it detects my network sometimes it doesn't. But at the moments it does detect, when I try to connect it fails then POOF network gone again.

    I'll try the boss prefs fix for the mail issue and tell you how it goes. Here's to upgrading and possibly downgrading again! :P

    ziPhone for 1.1.4 was famous (or infamous) for trashing wifi which is why there was a zibri wifi 'fix' that came out and hardwired the mac address to 0:z:i:b:r:i (or 00:5a:49:42:52:49). This is very bad (and dangerous obviously) since more than one iphone on the same network with the same mac address will conflict... so avoid it.

    Please take a look at this first which is a fix posted by the Dev Team:

    Wifi Fixer [iPhone Dev Team]

    If this doesn't work then next it's quite possible that you will need to follow one of the guides to restore wifi using your original mac address. Have a look at this thread which contains some advice on how to restore wifi:

    http://www.modmyi.com/forums/unlocki...4-ziphone.html

    Also, look for guides for revirginizing the baseband and firmware. As a very last resort you could try the following: You can apply the ziphone wifi fix using ziPhone 3.0 then use the following command to restore your original mac address (from ssh or terminal): "nvram wifiaddr=00:1F:5B:4F:F8:BB" One caveat, I haven't tested this personally but I found enough references to believe this may work. But I would suggest trying this only if everything else has failed.

    Assuming your phone is 2G then you have to install and run bootneuter from Cydia after using quickpwn. I would suggest instead to first use pwnagetool for the initial unlock and quickpwn for subsequent upgrades. If you have a 3G phone then there is currently no software unlock solution available.

    yes, yes... this is mac thread. Ok... pwnagetool for mac and winpwn for pc... How's that?

    I don't know what I did wrong but the ibooter didn't work for me. I saved the files in the user/local/lib and when i clicked on ibooter i got an error msg within terminal. I'm a little iffy on using ziphone to fix the issue because it seemed half and half in the forums about its wifi 'fix'. Virginizing the baseband is the only solution I can think of so far but after using quickpwn to upgrade I've no issues with email anymore so I'm in no rush to fix the wifi issue. I'll take my time and figure it out another method eventually. Thanks for your help!

    * so yes! quickpwn resolves the email permissions issue D

    I did not face any of those problems using quickpwn. It was quick and easy for me. Update to 2.0.2 within itunes, then run the program and follow their instructions.

    Also (correct me if I'm wrong) but I believe error 160x is related to you being in recovery mode NOT dfu mode. Make sure your screen is black, if the plug in symbol is there, you're in the wrong mode.

    Hi,

    Just a quick question (no pun intended):

    I'm running 2.0.1 on iPhone 3G. I want to upgrade to 2.0.2 using QuickPwn. Will this ERASE all my Jailbreak apps, like using PwnageTool does?

    Thanks.
