    Default Pwnge tool vs others
    Whats the difference of... say Pwnge tool versus others like greenp0ison? Is it a difference in a quality of jailbreaking or what?

    With Pwnage, Cydia apps can be included (aka OpenSSH) along with the ipsw. Another option can make the root partion larger (u will know if u need it (haha)).

    No baseband update is the primary use --- and REQUIRED for unlockers (any SIM use)

    do you depend on an unlock? if you do pwnage tool for mac or sn0wbreeze for windows creates a custom firmware so you can upgrade without updating your baseband(baseband updates patches the unlock) so your not locked to the carrier the phone came with. as far as greep0ison, limera1n, blackra1n, spirit,jailbreakme.com etc. it jailbreaks the specific firmware you are on and it was made for greenpoison(firmware 4.0.2-4.1) limera1n(firmware 4.0.2-4.1) blackrain(firmware 3.1.2) Spirit(firmware 3.1.3) Jailbreakme.com(firmware 4.0-4.0.1) i would mention other but might as well call firmware under 3.1.2 obsolete

    This sometimes happens when apps are added from non-standard Cydia repositories. They contain wierd names or dependancies or don't follow the Cydia packaging rules.

    What repos have you added?

    Sorry but if you didn't pay then it is cracked. ModMyI does not allow talk of cracked apps/piracy. You will get no help with that issue here.

    Cracked apps are paid apps that have been hacked to run without purchasing them. Cracked apps = piracy.

    Actually BlkCadi said it best to describe it.

    The use of 'cracked apps' or 'warez', referring to commercial applications available on the iTunes Application Store or Cydia Store that have been modified and distributed by third parties for free, is frowned upon by the community and against the forum rules; developers value your support!
