Thread: Quick Question on Pwning

    Default Quick Question on Pwning
    Hello Everyone,

    I have been reading everything on the forums and guides for the past couple of days to make sure I have a good grasp of what I am doing. I feel that I do but ran into a quick question. I am following the guide located here that I found on the hackint0sh Pwnage Tool FAQ http://www.hackthatphone.com/114/iphone_pwnage_mac.html I am only trying to Jailbreak my phone to run 3rd part applications, I have had it since December so its not brand new. I'm under the impressions that I dont need to click any of the checkboxes if I am just trying to jailbreak and run 3rd party, I don't need it unlocked or Activated since it was already activated through iTunes along time ago, but correct me if I am wrong.
    .

    So here's where I am in the process.

    1. I downloaded all of the necessary files.
    2. I plugged my phone in and loaded the 1.1.4 firmware downloaded from MMI into PwnageTool.
    3. I put my phone into Recovery mode as instructed and click iPwner. All of the text on my screen ran through no problems, it then rebooted and I saw the pineapple. Then what happened is the phone has been connected to my computer this whole time and so when it rebooted with the pineapple iTunes opened up and tried to Sync my songs and files with the phone which I think interrupted the process.

    My PwngeTool log currently reads like this......

    2008-04-23 14:21:11 - Successfully started "pwning" on your iPhone/iPod.

    It is supposed to say after that "Successfully Pwned your iPhone/iPod. So I'm wondering if it was successfully pwned or not? I put it in Recovery Mode again and the Steve Jobs cartoon loaded up so it looks ok but I want to make sure before I continue to load installer.app

    Thanks,
    Taylor Leach

    The method of pwning refers to modifying your bootloader in order to allow custom firmware. That image is a sure sign that your phone is pwned. The first stage is done, now just make yourself a custom firmware and flash it on your phone.

    So its ok that my the PwnageTool never said "Your phone was successfully "pwned"?

    I am having the exact same problem, and have gotten it on 2 different phones. It is killing me. It doesn't say that my phone has been successfully pwned. I am able to look at the installer icon on my phone but I am not able to activate my phone...so I have just gone back to the apple os.

    Even though it doesn't say it's done... the fact that the phone rebooted and you have the custom boot image is proof that it was successful.

    i *think* its because on the instructions they use a different version than you(and i--I just pwned mine yesterday) When I installed pwnagetool it asked me to update to v1.1.

    I assume when it says "successfully started" it implies that you aren't yet done, and you need to go on further to complete it( custom ipsw)

    Just a thought.
