    Default How to pwn and create a custom firmware
    Pwange was created by the Dev team. It is a little bit like a jailbreak, but you gives you a lot more freedom, with your ipod. I'm going to help you along the way of using pwnage.

    First thing first, you need to get a copy of pwnage. then you need to get the 1.1.4 restore file for your iphone or ipod touch.

    your ipod/ iphone has to be running the 1.1.4 firmware, for pwnage to work.



    [center]Open up pwnage tool and select browse .ipsw . To get the 1.1.4 firmware you can download it from the apple website, and SpoonForKnife has all the firmware links in his signature.Select *iPhone1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore.ipsw or iPod1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore.ipsw . then press open

    When pwnage tool asks you to put the device into restore mode. To do this plug in your device and hold down the home and power buttons until you see an arrow pointing to itunes.

    pwnage tool will now have told you that it has loaded the firmware. Now select ipwner, scrolling white text will appear on your device, don't worry this is normal. Pwnage tool will alert you that your device has been pwned, *scrolling text will still be on your device, don't touch your device at all. it will also say wait for reboot, so do that.

    CREATING A CUSTOM FIRMWARE

    First select ipsw builder, in pwnage tool, then in the general tabs select what you want to do. *I recommend selecting activate, enable baseband update, neuter bootloader, unlock baseband, and auto delete bootneuter.app. Then go into custom packages tab, and select apps you want to be on your firmware. Always install BSD subsystem.
    In custom logos tab, select wether or not you want custom logos and pick the ones you want.


    Once you click OK, pwnage will create a custom firmware and load it into itunes' directory. Then go into itunes and on your iphone alt-click on restore and choose your custom firmware. When your device restarts it load bootneuter.app don't touch anything wait for it to go to the home screen

    I really hope this helps!

    just don't click unlock baseband, or update baseband, and if you are already activated, just unclick activate as well, then you will not be unlocked, only jailbroken

    Oh, I thought it was more complicated than that... I thought you had to do something with the lockdown file and what not.

    Another noob question, what does this method do for your stock stuff like notes or contacts? Does it back them up into the custom firmware?

    its the same as when you regularly restore, itunes backs up all your stuff whenever you sync with it, so the next time you restore, when you say restore from backup of ipod, it will put all your notes and stuff back. also itunes will ask you if you want to back up before you restore
