Thread: Pwnage tool 4.01 confusion?

  1. #1
    Default Pwnage tool 4.01 confusion?
    I know my device has the old bootrom in it however I am confused by this statement:

    If you have a Jailbroken iPhone 3GS with the OLD BOOTROM and you DID NOT use Spirit to jailbreak then you can create the ipsw with PwnageTool 4.0 and restore with your jailbroken recovery mode.


    I DID use Spirit to JB my 3GS that was upgraded to 3.13 so does this mean I cannot us Pwnage to JB IOS4?

    Just seems unclear to me

    I do not understand this also! Its something about the way Spirit jailbreaks the iphone!

    Since you have a 3gs I would restore to say 3.1.2 and use PWNAGE 3.1.5 and take the iphone to 3.1.3 and then use PWNAGE Tool 4

    This is similuar to when 3.1.3 first came out, in that the Dev_Team release PWNAGE Tool 3.1.5 but for this to work you had to be already jailbroken with PWNAGE Tool!

    Just my opinion!

    How would I downgrade to 3.12 then use Pwnage to go to 3.13?

    Just did this yesterday. Restore to a stock 3.1.2 firmware in itunes. You may need to do this twice youll get a 1015 error. Use iRecovery to boot out of recovery mode. Then use Pwnage to jailbreak on 3.1.2. you will have a fully functional 3.1.2 jailbroken phone. Then you can use pwnage to create a custom 3.1.3 firmware and restore with that in itunes. You may need to do this restore twice as well. You will then have a pwned 3.1.3.

    I have 359.3 bootrom, 3.1.3, JB with Spirit.
    No 3.1.2 SHSH. Do have 3.1.3 SHSH's backed up.

    does restoring back to 3.1.2 assume that you have SHSH's stored for 3.1.2??

    thanks

    Yes that is what I did on my old bootrom 3GS. That had been on 3.1.3 jb with spirit. That is why i downgrsded to 3.1.2 to use pwnage and work back up.
    I believe that is the old bootrom
