Pwnage - Custom Modded Firmware through iTunes
Now here's one we've been waiting for. You remember seeing the AMAZING Videos.
The long and short of it? After "pwn"-ing your iPhone using this method drummed up by the Dev Team, you can install custom .ipsw files directly through iTunes. Huh, say you? It means, open iTunes, Option/Shift Click Restore, choose your modded firmware file, and voila - jailbreak/unlock/Installer/Cydia when its done restoring! No extra steps!
They will release two tools when this is public - iPwn to Pwn your iPhone, and .IPSW Builder to "modify the .ipsw filesystem, i.e. pre-jailbreak, pre-unlock, pre-activate, and create a complete custom .ipsw installation. In case you are already unlocked you can even tell it to disable the baseband update, just in case. Restore or Update from iTunes with custom .ipsw file and Voila! no more hassles after that."
And they've even given a TON of info on how they did it.
Not bad, guys. Not bad.

I thought nothing was going to get easier than a restore, then ziphone. A few days back I went from 1.1.3 and upgraded to 1.1.4. Didn't get the results I wanted so I did a complete restore using 1.1.4 and broke on ziphone. Total time invested 6 minutes.
Remembering what I went through to go from 1.1.1 to 1.1.3 jailbroken (two hours later i was done) the newest dev breaks are top notch.

awsome I can't wait

this is going to be awesome. especially cause it's faster than ziPhone, and with the SDK coming, we'll have so much "customiz-ability". (editing the gui and our firmware, the iphone will be more powerful than ever.)

Yahooo! Custom monsterpacks

Wow. This is simply just amazing work. I'm very excited for this.

cant wait for this!!
03-07-2008, 11:50 PM #17
can someone do a better job of explaining the significance of this?
03-07-2008, 11:53 PM #18
Actually, believe it or not, I've been calling my iPhone an iPwn for about a month now. Haha, it's even it's name when it's opened in iTunes.
But wow, this definitely is amazing. Having nothing but dial up on the top of the mountain, it took a LONG time to get to 1.1.3 jailbroken on a wifi network with such a slow connection. It's so great that we can have this option now incase something were to happen to our phones. Keep up the good work!

This is one step further to CFW. It "IS" CFW in a way but I'm talking M33v4 style CFW.....
