How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool (Mac) [4.0]

6 comments:
These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS on iOS 4.0 using PwnageTool for Mac.

Currently, PwnageTool only works on previously jailbroken 3GS devices with the old bootrom.

● 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.
● If you have an iPhone 3GS with the NEW BOOTROM this is NOT supported by PwnageTool 4.0. Please don't use this tutorial.

Step One
Make a folder called "Pwnage" on the desktop. In it, you will need a couple of things. PwnageTool 4.0, found here or here








You will also need the 4.0 iPhone firmware.
4.0.0 (3GS): iPhone2,1_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw

When downloading the IPSW file, it is best to download it with Firefox since Safari often auto extracts it!


Step Two
Double click to mount PwnageTool then drag the PwnageTool icon into the Pwnage folder.









Then from the Pwnage folder double click to launch the PwnageTool application.









Click Ok if presented with a warning.








Step Three
Click to select Expert Mode from the top menu bar









Step Four
Click to select your iPhone. A check-mark will appear over the image of the phone.









Step Five
Click the blue arrow button to continue. You will be brought to the "Browse for IPSW" page. On my laptop, it automatically found the IPSW. If PwnageTool doesn't automatically find the ipsw file you can click Browse for IPSW....








Click to select the found IPSW file, a checkmark will appear next to it. Then click the blue arrow button to continue.








Step Six
You will then be brought to a menu with several choices. Click to select General then click the blue arrow button.








The General settings allows you to decide the partition size. Check Activate the phone if you are not with an official carrier then click the blue arrow button.








NOTE*: Deselect Activate if you have an iPhone legitimately activated on an official carrier.

The Cydia settings menu allows you to create custom packages so you do not have to manually install the necessary them later.








Click to select the Download packages tab. Then click the Refresh button to display all the available packages. Double clicking the package you want will download it and make it available in the Select Packages tab.









Checkmark the ones you want then Click the blue arrow button.








The Custom Packages Settings menu displays listed package settings for your custom IPSW. For know leave these settings as is. Click the blue arrow button to continue.







The Custom Logos Settings menu allows you to add your own images as boot logos. Click the Browse button to select your Boot logo and Recovery logo.







Remember the rules for them: RGB or Grayscale format with Alpha channel and dimensions below 320x480...


Click the blue arrow button to continue.

Step Seven
You are now ready to begin the pwnage process! Click the Build button to select it then click the Blue arrow button to begin.









Step Eight
You will be asked to save your custom .ipsw file. Save it to your Pwnage folder you created on your Desktop.









Your IPSW is now being built. Please allow up to 10 minutes.








You will be asked to enter your administrator password. Do this then click the OK button.


Step Nine
Once your ipsw has been built you will be asked to place your iPhone into recovery mode. Click OK to close the popup message telling you this, then connect your iPhone to the computer and follow these instructions on how to put your iPhone into recovery mode.







Step Ten
Once In iTunes, hold the Alt/Option key and click Restore.








Step Eleven
Navigate to the Pwnage folder on your desktop using the dialog window that appears. Select the custom IPSW that was created and click the Open button.









Step Twelve
iTunes will now restore the firmware on your iPhone. This can also take up to 10 minutes. Once done you will be rebooted into jailbroken iPhone OS 4.0!

***THANKS: Thank you to the Dev-Team for their hard work in making this jailbreak and tutorial possible!

iPhone Dev-Team Releases PwnageTool Jailbreak for iOS 4.0

No comments:



The iPhone Dev-Team has released a version of PwnageTool which can jailbreak many devices with iOS 4.0.

Each supported device has few different scenarios that users need to consider when performing the upgrades, you need to check below and perform the upgrade in the particular way that matches your current device state.

NB: With PwnageTool 4.0 certain devices are not supported this is because they are not supported in iOS 4.0 or they are not supported by our software. We’re working on ways to get past these restrictions.
* iPhone 2G - not supported
* iPod Touch - not supported
* iPod Touch 3G - not supported

PwnageTool 4.0 only recognizes the official IPSWs that came out yesterday. If you had developer access to the “4.0 GM” IPSWs, do not try to use those.

iPhone 3GS
Currently, PwnageTool only works on previously jailbroken 3GS devices with the old bootrom.

● 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.
● If you have an iPhone 3GS with the NEW BOOTROM this is NOT supported by PwnageTool 4.0

iPhone 3G
● If you have a Jailbroken iPhone 3G at 3.1.2 (but not jailbroken with Spirit) then you should create the ipsw with PwnageTool 4.0 and restore from recovery mode or DFU mode.
● If you have an out of the box iPhone 3G you should restore using a PwnageTool 4.0 ipsw using DFU mode.
● If you have a Jailbroken 3.1.3 iPhone 3G it is very possible that this can fail from recovery mode, if this failure happens you will need to restore using DFU mode.
● As an alternative to PwnageTool, you can use redsn0w on iPhone 3G (on both Windows and Mac) as mentioned in our last post.

IMPORTANT! Whenever you need to enter DFU mode, you will need to do so using PwnageTool.

iPod touch 2G
● If you have an iPod touch 2G (non-MC model) that is jailbroken (but not with Spirit) then you can restore using recovery mode.
● As an alternative to PwnageTool, you can use redsn0w on non-MC iPod Touch 2G (on both Windows and Mac) as mentioned in our last post.

Once jailbroken you can unlock your device using this UltraSn0w tutorial.

You can download the new version of PwnageTool here or it is mirrored here.

We will be posting updated tutorials very soon. Stay tuned!

First iPhone 4 units being delivered

No comments:



Aw, suki suki now! Looks like we've got our first iPhone 4 delivery here in the US, a full 24 hours before the first batch is supposed to land. The best news isn't that throngs of pre-orderers are seeing their units "out for delivery" today, but that this Mac Rumors user was able to activate his unit already in seamless fashion. 'Course, we highly doubt it'll be so easy for everyone else crashing the servers tomorrow and Thursday, but there it is. So, anyone else seeing their iPhone 4 marked as "out for delivery?" Or better still, "in hand?" Give us a shout in comments below.

[Thanks, Anonymous]

Update: We've moved the FedEx image past the break, as one lucky Mac Rumors member already has his in hand. And so it begins. [Thanks, Adam]

Update 2: A reader has sent us over the above picture of his own brand new iPhone 4, which has only just arrived. [Thanks, Mark!]

iPhone 4 arrives at Walmart (update: and Best Buy!)

No comments:



Check out that sweet, sweet box. Yes folks, we seem to have received our very first in-the-cardboard picture of the retail iPhone 4 out in the wild. We don't work at Walmart, so we can't verify this one for ourselves, but our tipster says Apple's latest phone has just landed in the big box retailer's storehouses.



P.S. -- Before you start frothing at the mouth, the CDMA coding on the box in the background relates to an LG 290C handset also stocked by Walmart.

Update: A shot of a Best Buy arrival is past the break.

Apple Says iPhone 4 Will Arrive One Day Early?

No comments:



Apple has sent pre-order customers a letter informing them that their iPhone 4 will arrive on June 23rd. That date is one day earlier than the official launch date of June 24th.

Dear Apple Store Customer,

You recently received a Shipment Notification email from Apple advising you that your iPhone has shipped.

This email is to confirm that your delivery will occur on June 23rd. Although Apple and FedEx tracking information may currently indicate a later date, you can check the FedEx website the morning of the June 23rd to track your package to your doorstep.

In the event that you will not be available to accept delivery on June 23rd, it may be more convenient to use our pre-sign delivery option by visiting our Order Status website at http://www.apple.com/orderstatus

Sincerely,

The Apple Store Team

This is likely an error although the date is mentioned three times in the email.
