Thread: Anyone upgraded to 4.1 with unofficial pwnagetool?

  1. #1
    Default Anyone upgraded to 4.1 with unofficial pwnagetool?
    I just wondered if anyone had used the unofficial version of pwnagetool to go to 4.1? I have a 3GS phone I am selling and would prefer to get it on the latest version of software first.

    BTW, it's already pwn'd on 4.0.

    Thanks

    Would that work for 3G as well? Still a bit gun shy to slow my iPhone 3G down anymore since 4.0 came out, sent it to a crawl.

    Why in PwnageTool 4.0 and 4.01 is there nothing for iPhone 3G?
    PS. It doesn't seem to like my iTunes 10

    Ok, I tried it and nearly bricked the iPhone. Took 3 hrs to get back to a stable 4.0.1

    Avoid!

    I am running my 3Gs right now with 4.1 jailbroken with the unofficial pwnage tool. However, it has some serious quirks that will require me to redo it when a suitable Mac tool comes out. For instance, apps won't run, and the phone requires a hard reboot when I plug it into my 1 amp car charger, as I discovered the other day. Safari would not run, and I had to download a fix for that from a weird source on Cydia. And these are just 2 problems I've noticed. The moral of the story is to stay away from the unofficial pwnage tool. It might work, but major issues are most likely going to be lurking right under the surface.

    Sounds like a Pwnagetool should be out Sunday. Pm me if want me to send you a Snowbreeze 4.1 firmware. It was a bit buggy to activate but working perfectly now installed. Couldn't get rid of the stupid snowflake on boot though...

    Using lizards821's YouTube video as a guide, I tried upgrading to 4.1 on my 3G with the unofficial PwnageTool bundle and it all worked: Cydia, hacktivation, unlocking w/ultrasn0w etc. -but- I couldn't restore from a backup or create a new backup with iTunes. I would get the "session could not be started" error. Tried the info.plist version change too; no go. So I went back to 4.0 where everything still works.

    Based on what I've read, it may be a hacktivation issue on PwnageTool 4.0.1's part with iOS 4.1. So I'm going to try the lockdownd patch next which does the hacktivation outside of PwnageTool, since that seems to be working for a lot of folks on the ih8sn0w forums.

    I was thinking of simply waiting for the new PwnageTool, but it sounds like us 3G users are being left out in the cold this round. Though maybe the new one will address this problem when creating the ipsw...

    If you upgraded to 4.1 then you will not be able to unlock again yet. You can use limera1n or greenpoison to jailbreak and activate but will have to wait for a new unlock to come out.

    If you didnt save them when Apple was still signing them then it is too late now. Apple is currently only signing 4.1.
