    Default Keep getting "Wrong firmware bundle selected" in PwnageTool

    Hello all,

    I just acquired a gen 1 iPhone 4GB (with a clean v2.2 firmware install on it, ready for activation) and am attempting to activate, jailbreak and unlock it for use on T-Mobile USA.

    I am using the PwnageTool (v 2.0.3, the latest) to do this; after selecting the right device (iPhone 1st gen) it tells me that it cannot detect any bundles and so I go to advanced mode and point it to my folder on the Desktop containing the files, but no matter what version of the firmware bundle I use, the tool errors out with "Wrong firmware bundle selected" and does not proceed.

    I have checked that I'm selecting iPhone and not iPhone 3G in the starting screen. I've taken care to download the images from the apple file servers linked from here (I also triple checked that I'm downloading the 1,1 firmware bundles.)

    Please help!

    That's strange

    Does the firmware bundle download with an ipsw extension on the end or as a zip file?

    Just in case that's the problem you could try downloading it throw Firefox

    Default Even the bundle d/l by iTunes doesn't work

    thanks n350z. Yes, I did use Firefox to download all the images as I saw Safari downloading them as .zip files, plus I read elsewhere in this forum that Firefox is recommended.

    Last night I put the device in DFU mode and got iTunes to download the latest firmware bundle for it. But PwnageTool did not discover this one automatically either. When I used manual mode to browse to the .ipsw under the iTunes software updates directory (~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates), I still get the same "Wrong firmware bundle selected" error

    I have MacOS X 10.5.6. Could this be an issue (I remember reading this causing some other problem)?

    Only issue I seen with 10.5.6 is entering DFU mode, I would try re downloading the pwnagetool 2.2.1 from the dev team blog.

    Default I used QuickPwn and it worked! (Didn't SIM unlock though)

    So PwnageTool would not work on either my Mac or my buddy's. I also tried WinPwn (I think that's what it was called) but no success there either. The interesting thing was that in all of these cases, the tool would not recognize the .ipsw file (even though I got iTunes to download it).

    I finally tried QuickPwn on my Mac and it recognized the files and proceeded to jailbreak and hacktivate my phone.

    The only thing left is to SIM unlock it (it did not happen automatically). I dropped my T-Mobile SIM in there and it would not recognize it. I suspect the baseband needs to be modded (though I thought QuickPwn would do that)? Can anyone help me with that?

    Ok, so I was stuck with a QuickPwned phone for a week now that was jailbroken and hacktivated, but NOT unlocked. I then attempted to use BootNeuter obtained through Cydia to unlock my baseband, but this would hang on my phone and auto-reboot after 5 minutes approx.

    So I figured I still have to use PwnageTool which refused so far to run on my MacBook. After some more searching I realized that the latest version of PwnageTool as of Jan '09 is 2.2 (I was using 2.0.3 which did not indicated that there were any tool updates, strangely enough). After downloading that, I was successfully able to load the 2.2 .ipsw and create a custom .ipsw from it. I noticed one more thing: if I ran PwnageTool from any directory other than the one containing the .DMG, I would hit the same error I described earlier - weird.

    Anyway, I then put my iPhone in DFU mode, and attempted to et iTunes to restore to the custom firmware. But then that would fail with error 1600. After some more searching, I found this post. After following these instructions EXACTLY, I was able to unlock my phone and it worked fine on T-Mobile out-of-the-box (basically you need to use iTunes 7.7 for this)! Mad props to the iPhone Dev Team!!
