Thread: PwnageTool To Jailbreak All Future Firmwares on A4 iDevices

  1. #1
    Default PwnageTool To Jailbreak All Future Firmwares on A4 iDevices


    MuscleNerd, a developer from the Dev-Team, has hinted at the possibility of PwnageTool being able to provide untethered jailbroken firmware creation for ALL future firmware updates on devices that use the A4 chip (iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G and iPad).

    "Think we've figured out a way to extend PwnageTool+limera1n+@comex hacks to untethered JBs for all future A4 firmwares " says MuscleNerd via twitter. The announcement gives a bit more confidence to jailbreakers who are afraid of being left out when future updates come, like iOS 4.2 for example. This one being a major update for the iPad users, and losing their jailbreaks could be disappointing if there was no way to jailbreak.

    While Limera1n and Greenpois0n are also considered "exploits for life" for the A4, it is not likely that they would be untethered tools in the future, once Apple patches the exiting tools currently used. PwnageTool on the otherhand, would be able to provide these untethered jailbroken firmwares even after Apple patches the current holes that currently provide us an untethered jb. This once again, is what iPad and iPhone 4 users want to hear, as this means you'll be able to jailbreak, untethered, for "life".

    If this is the case, we may see PwnageTool once again being the main tool for Jailbreaking your iDevices, as we all know, a tethered JB is no fun at all.

    Tomorrow will be the official release, so keep your eyes peeled for Sunday Funday!

    Cool but what is the difference between tethered and untetherd

    I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.

    Everytime you shut off your device and turn it back on you're required to run the JB program in order to get inside the OS. - That's tether.

    Untether means you can just boot up normally.

    tethered means every time the iDevice turns fully off (not just sleep but actually power down) you must plug the iDevice bak into your computer and rejailbreak it

    yeah, that's why PwnageTool could be the bees knees when it comes to jailbreaking.

    I would assume a Mac version would come first.

    Limera1n and greenpoison using the exploit they are using now should be jailbreak for life for all devices with the current bootroms, not just the A4 devices (although it will be tethered).

    Why must people be asking about unlock all the time!?! It is a work in progress if you follow the Devs on twitter you would know that @sherif hashim is working on the unlock (probably not the only dev) and they are not going to release it for 4.1 as 4.2 comes out next month so what would be the point of releasing it now just so apple can patch the Baseband for 4.2? People need to either get over the fact that apple is always going to patch exploits and baseband unlocks so either your screwed if you get a new refurbished device from apple or it came like that...your just gonna have to wait...and if you updated to the newest firmware without knowing you ARE gonna lose your unlock and jailbreak...well guess what, too bad. Should read before updating next time Sorry... just tired of people hassling the Dev teams that do this stuff for free and out of their own personal time. Thanks Devs for everything you do!

    OH and stop hijacking threads!!

    It was usually Mac exclusive, but hey, the Dev team is likely to release it on Windows, too.

    The iPhone Dev Team can own my base if it proves to jailbreak future firmwares with A4 chip.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    I had a feeling this would happen. If pwnage tool allows you to create custom firmware then there has to be a way to plant an exploit within the cfw allow for an untethered jb.

    Rage much? Doesn't seem like he was "harassing" anyone and if asking a simple question hoping to garner information is "harassing" in your book, than you need to get your happy pill dose increased. JB/Unlocking go hand-in-hand so it seemed like a fair enough question..

    PwnageTool NEVER updates the BaseBand, so anyone with a baseband from 4.0.2 or earlier will be able to keep their unlock for life too!!!!

    So Bring on 4.2 apple!
