Pwnage not finding firmware after factory restore 3G
Hello! I’m new to the forum and need some help/advice for jailbreaking my iphone….
I followed the instructions for pwnage 3.1.5. (I had iphone version 3.1.3.)
My customized .ispw file was created, but instead of pressing option+restore, I stupidly restored to apple’s factory settings. So now I have:
But now when I try to restore using the customized ispw file, it says “firmware not compatible” and will not allow it. (I also downloaded a 3.1.3 OS ispw and it won’t let me restore to that file either.) Most importantly, now when I run pwnage, it doesn’t find any firmware on my iphone.
Does anyone know what could be causing this? My guess is that the new baseband is preventing any other firmware versions to be restored to my iphone, but pwnage should still find the firmware on my phone so I can create a new customized ispw. Phone has never been jailbroken before.
I’m confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Re: Pwnage not finding firmware after factory restore
By restoring to 3.1.3 you have removeds the pwnage that allows the restoration of custom ipsw.
Due to this, you can't just restore with custom ipsw in iTunes. You need to re-pwn the phone first.
There are a couple of ways to achieve this.
Possibly the fastest way is to jailbreak 3.1.3 with redsn0w 0.9.2 and then restore custom IPSW
