    Default [Pwnage 2.0.3][2.0.2] Won't Authenticate Mail Accounts (solution on post #4)

    Just got done going through a series of upgrades (attempts), using Firmware 2.0.2 and the new Pwnage Tool v2.0.3, with the same result each time. I've searched the forum, specifically the Pwnage thread, and not found a similar issue so apologies if this is a repeat.

    Using a custom Firmware 2.0.1 IPSW created by Pwnage v2.0.3 to OPTION+RESTORE the iPhone, everything goes smooth as silk and works as planned. When the restore completes, the iPhone is unlocked and fully functional. I can connect to EDGE (T-Mobile APN, running unlock'd) and my protected WI-FI without issue. But, when creating new email accounts, the password is never accepted as valid. That is to say, although I can setup the accounts with apparent success within "Settings", subsequent attempts to actually sync or check the particular mail account results in an error, informing me of a incorrect password, and no matter how many attempts to re-enter the password (whether entered at the error message/prompt or re-entering via "Settings") it's not accepted.

    The results are the same, after multiple OPTION+RESTORE's, and treating the iPhone as a new phone (not restoring from backup) each time. I've also tried MobileMe, Exchange and Gmail accounts, with the same error in all cases.

    Here's the kicker though, as soon as I restore back to a previously created IPSW (created using Pwnage Tool v2.0.2, so Firmware v2.0.1) everything goes back to normal... with all email account types working/syncing correctly.

    Anyone else encountered this issue? Is there a thread I overlooked/didn't show in my searching that addresses this? Thanks in advance for any constructive feedback.

    As noted, restoring back to a custom Firmware v2.0.1 (in my case, created with Pwnage Tool v2.0.2) put things back to normal.

    Same problem.

    Interesting. I am trying this now... just when I was gonna let a "full sync" go and drift off to sleep. Oh well, what's a another OPTION+RESTORE to see if this does the trick.

    UPDATE: Thanks for the pointer/tip, Nettwerk. Steps followed:

    1) Performed an OPTION+RESTORE to a custom Firmware v2.0.2, created with the new Pwnage Tool v2.0.3
    2) Setup connection to local Wi-Fi Network.
    3) Launched Cydia. Let Cydia update itself, then followed steps to install OpenSSH on the iPhone (the instructions are on the main/home page of the Cydia application.)
    4) Rebooted the iPhone once OpenSSH was installed. Once rebooted, setup connection to local Wi-Fi Network. Made note of IP Address.
    5) SSH'd into the iPhone and ran the "chmod 0777" command on the "/var/Keychains" directory. In my case, I used Terminal on my MacBook (since it was the first time, it took a couple of minutes for the initial prompt/response from the iPhone.)
    6) Setup a mail account. In my case, a MobileMe account.

    Success! All is working as desired. Can't say I had to do this with the last Pwnage/Firmware version combination. From Nettwerk's original reply/suggestion, it looks like he was quoting from somewhere. I must of overlooked the post during my searching, Nettwerk, so thanks for being helpful and not hurtful.

    What's the best tool to do the CHMOD? - I have been using Cyberduck to upload files but conscious it may not be hands on enough. Thanks!

    See this blog for two possible (temporary?) solutions to the password problem (until 'real' solution from the Dev Team):

    http://www.talentgrouplabs.com/blog/...tionality.aspx

    One is the openssh method mentioned earlier (with more specifics).

    Another (from my testing) is to NOT include "Cydia" in the custom .ipsw. NOTE: I really like Cydia... I'm not trying to 'bash' it - but my testing (so far) has found that including Cydia in the custom .ipsw causes this 'forgotten password' issue on my iPhone.

    I assume the Dev Team will have a real solution soon.

    Working Solution is:

    Using pwnagetool AND quickpwn.

    Make custom 2.0.2 firmware in pwnagetool WITHOUT cydia/installer.

    Passwords will the save.

    Use QuickPwn to add cydia/installer.

    Everything will then be working.

    Its not the most convenient solution but its easy and works!
    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!)

    Is this something they missed in the testing...seems odd for the dev team to miss something like this.
