    Default [Pwnage 2.0] Needs password?

    I'm surprised no one has brought this up.

    Although it is not that I don't trust the devteam, but why exactly do they need my admin (superuser) password to build the custom .ipsw file?
    I've been trying to think of whatever permissions they need and I can't think of a reason they would need admin privileges to build the file.

    I'm not asking for details, but can someone please enlighten me what they couldn't do in user mode that the could do in superuser mode to create the special iphone firmware?

    Thanks

    I think it has something to do with mounting the Ramdisk on the desktop. Since it's not a user-initiated action, the mac asks for you to make sure it's okay before the app does anything fishy.

    That's just pure speculation though

    Cekle is right, user level can't mount the RamDisk, it requires an Admin authentication.
