In fact, wouldn't this open the possiblity for "pre-made" firmwares with certain features included? Like someone could make a "1.1.4 jailbroken/non-unlocked with X,Y, and Z" apps. So you can download that firmware, install it, and end with 1.1.4 jailbroken without having to do anything.

Yep, this makes pre made f/w possible. Think of making your own f/w with all your custom mods and apps installed in it before you load it onto your phone. Monsterpacks baby.

I can only imagine this being useful to people new at modding or completely lazy people like me.
The firmware can be activated, jailbroken, unlocked, and could include the necessary apps like bsd subsystem, openssh, and customize to name a few.

Alright, I have to throw this out there and I'm sure I' am gonna get burned for this. But, isn't the .ipsw files legally covered by the DCMA? So altering this will mean copyright infringement. B/C honestly I do not see Apple and the "Big Steve" letting this happen. BURN AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

gotch ya, so instead of manually installing bsd subsystem and the open ssh etc... this method automatically does it for you ?? <<< i think thats what it is !

Sorry guys, I thought I made it clear. Pre-modded firmware is what this means.
We will be unable to host these firmware due to legal issues, but this IS a huge step.
03-08-2008, 01:45 AM #33
so the tools you're publishing just allow us to do our own firmware mods? if so, I would have no idea how to do that. is there instructions? will these tools be made for pcs as well as macs?
if someone could give a brief overview of how to accomplish these awesome prepackaged firmwares are made that would be great.
03-08-2008, 01:47 AM #34
due to legal issues? So does it mean it really has some illegalities about it? :-(

First of all, this work was done by the iPhone Dev Team, not myself. Second, nothing is published yet.
When it IS released publicly, I'm sure we'll get ya'll instructions on how to use it.

so after reading the devs' post on pwnage again, I understand what they're giving us is the tools to pwn our phone and make our own ipsw files.
Now I have a better question: how hard is it to tweak your ipsw file to custom mod it like we do with customize, smd, installer? what legality issues are involved with this? (or where could I find out?)
It would be nice if we could actually be able to utilize ad2p to listen to music. cool stuff guys.

Sweet great job guys mmi +1 apple -1 sweet

a general question to those who are knowledgeable on programming (enough so to compile a pre-modded ipfw package):
while I do understand that it is violation of copyright to distribute these firmwares in their entirety, I wonder if it'd be possible to distribute a patchfile that contains just the changed files and have the user run these legal patches on their legally obtained Apple distributed firmware files as a workaround?
please correct me if I'm mistaken, but as a computer engineering student, this seems logical and possible. Any thoughts?
Thanks and hope everyone is doing well. The news this thread brings really is substantial. Thanks to everyone who makes all this possible. [[standing ovation]]
