    Default [Advice] create a custom IPSW with preinstalled apps...

    During the pwnage IPSW builder process, there is a point where a volume is mounted called "Littlebear.xxxx"and you are prompted for your password to unmount it. At that stage, before you enter your password, you have full write access to the volume. Take a look, you see /Applications, etc...and can drop in items (I took apps from a working iphone and dropped them in to complete the swifi fix). I installed terminal and UICtl, copying over the appropriate files in /bin as well, and was able to complete the swifi fix without iphuc or worrying about how to install apps with no wifi.
    You may be prompted to authenticate if you try to write to /bin, but /Applications was wide open. Once your done, enter your password in the original prompt, IPSW builder carries on with it's work and you end up with a nicely built restore image.
    I'm sure a better way will appear in the near future, but this is easy enough for me to get by.
    Thanks again to all the people that have made this possible.
    now back to that IMEI problem....

    I've been playing around with this the whole day.

    I wasn't able to get any app working. Can you give me the files for the terminal to work?

    Do you furthermore know how to enable ssh or afp?

    Yeah, I learned this about an hour or so after acquiring pwnage tool... It works for apps that don't require BSD Subsystem preinstalled or those that don't require their own external files in the system partition.

    But yeah, IPSW tool will work better for most people when it's released.

    yeah I agree it's limited to self contained apps or those that you can bring over the external files for as well (terminal with files in /bin). it's just to get you by until a real tool is released, and again for me it made the swifi fix easy (UICtl, terminal, swifi).

    read the FAQ! Does anyone here read?

    There is an app in development that will do this for you automatically!
    iPhone US 8GB
    FW 1.0.2--> iUnlock--> iPhoneSIMfree--> 1.1.1 --> 1.1.2--> Soft upgrade 1.1.3 --> 1.1.4 using signal.app
    iPhone UK 16GB
    FW 1.1.3 OOB --> 1.1.4 --> iPlus 1.2 unlocked!

    <----If I helped you out, rep points are always nice (thanks for that idea!)
