    Question [PwanageTool] Add apps to an existing custom firmware

    Is it possible to add applications to a previously made custom firmware?

    If yes, could some one tell me the steps involved in doing that.


    Cheers

    Bump, also interested due to wanting to use WinPwn for the Installer applications and then use PwnageTool for DMG editing as it works better native. I suppose I can wait for v1.2 if not.

    The only conflict I can forsee are the core patches conflicting, i.e. Pwnage trying to patch already patched files. I assume there is no safeguard against this as in theory its unecessary work. I'll wait for 1.2.

    you can unzip it by renaming the .ipsw file to .zip and paste the files but after that i doubt you will be able to zip it and rename it back and use it properly because it can make it unstable and when the pwange tool is making the custom firmware you can see it converts it into UDZO or something and scans it so i don't recommend it....

    That ain't work. The custom firmware files contain plist files that to hold the complete size (in KB), plus you would have to add how to execute additions packages,....

    Just make a new custom file and add the stuff you want there.

    The only thing renaming to a zip is good for is to replace the boot images, I use it to replace my boot IMG2 so I don't have to fiddle about with PNGs.
