Full OSX Usage Guide with Instructions for 2.0 Beta
OSX Download from ModMyI | Official download from theiphoneproject.org
Windows Coming Soon . . .
Why choose PwnageTool? Unlike other previous jailbreak methods that exploit the iPhone, PwnageTool modifies the iPhone to accept unsigned .ipsw files allowing for a safer Jailbreak using the tried and true iTunes restore. The OSX Version of PwnageTool Not only will pwn your phone but also allows for the creation of custom .ipsw files to load via iTunes.
OSX Version Features:
- iPwner - Pwns your iPhone, the safer jailbreak
- IPSW Builder - Lets you create custom firmware to load to you pwnd phone including unlocking, neutering, custom pictures, activation, and bootloade upgrade/downgrade.
- Bootneuter: A neutered bootloader survives iTunes updates, even updates to 1.2.0 (aka 2.0). Unlike unlocking which requires a new patch for each firmware version, you only need to neuter once.
Windows Version Features:
- Coming Soon
Once again awesome job Dev Team

Why is this method safer? It seems like more messing around with the system. Ziphone will soon work with 2.0 also, so some people might want to wait.

Does anyone know where I can find the BL files? I was trying to make an IPSW but I can't find the BL files. I thought they were just built into the firmware.
