    Default PwnageTool 4.2 released. (supports iOS 4.2.1)

    What’s in a name?

    What’s in a name? Well in the case of an HFS volume name on iOS, an untether exploit — as the Chronic Dev Team revealed last week with an untether for the 4.2.1 jailbreak, which had previously been a tethered JB for most recent devices since 4.2.1’s release in November. With their permission, we’ve incorporated their 4.2.1 “feedface” untether into today’s PwnageTool 4.2. This means iPhone unlockers can safely restore to a custom 4.2.1 pre-jailbroken IPSW and retain their current baseband and unlock. PwnageTool also supports all the other 4.2.1 devices other than iPod touch 2G:

    * iPhone3G
    * iPhone3GS
    * iPhone4
    * iPhone4-Verizon
    * iPod touch 3G
    * iPod touch 4G
    * iPad
    * AppleTV 2G

    PwnageTool also includes two very recent improvements to the 4.2.1 JB: iBooks was just fixed by @comex and @pushfix last night so that it works as intended on DRMed books, and the wifi problem on AppleTV 2G was fixed by @nitotv, @DHowett, and @saurik. Both of these fixes will also be available in upcoming Cydia package updates, so if you’re already jailbroken you can wait for those updates rather than restore and jailbreak again.

    The various components to the 4.2.1 untether (including a second exploit involving Mach-o headers) were worked out by 0naj, posixninja, and pod2g, and a nice writeup by 0naj is available on the wiki. The actual injection method uses geohot’s limerain exploit for most devices. And even though 4.3 is just around the corner, the exploit used has already been closed in the latest 4.3 betas, so it made sense for the 4.2.1 untether to be released when it was. It also appears that a security researcher named @i0n1c has a 4.3 untether ready for when Apple releases the final 4.3 FW, so it may not be a long wait at all with 4.3!

    Feel free to ask for help in our comments section. And thanks as always to our terrific moderators Confucious, sherif_hashim, dhlizard, Frank55, and subarurider!

    Yes you can!!! This version uses the same kernel exploit that the latest greenpois0n uses. Plus iBooks works properly.

    Yes, pwnagetool 4.2 custom IPSW will replace the tethered jailbreak with an untethered jailbreak. It will also allow restore with the iPad baseband.

    Greenpois0n rc6.1 will replace the tethered jailbreak with an untethered one (but will be faster)

    Pwnage 4.2 doesnt give the option to install iPad's baseband, I just tried in both Simple and Expert mode and it never asks whether its a new or old bootrom nor whether you want to upgrade to iPad's baseband or not. Just untethered jailbreak.

    So I restored to 4.2 Pwnage cooked 4.2.1, then installed iPad's baseband with Redsn0w 0.9.6rc7 then unlocked wih ultrasn0w 1.2.

    Question, what did you mean by "(but will be faster)"?? Or doing the jailbreak with Greenpois0n rc6.1 will end up a faster running phone than the way I did?

    I haven't had the time to play around with Pwnagetool 4.2 enough. Wasn't aware that the iPad baseband option had been removed. It doesn't really surprise me though. Too many people rushed in and updated their baseband (often without actually needing to) to the iPad version. These people who ignored the "technique for advanced users only" warning then complained about the exact same issues which were documented in the dev team blog post (problems restoring, GPS etc).

    I don't know anything for sure - but based on what they have said publicly, I suspect that the dev team are working on a better solution than the iPad baseband for unlock of the 3G/3GS. My guess is that they have some ideas but for now have prioritised an unlock for the iPhone 4 on recent basebands. I think that once that is released, they will start looking into these ideas.

    when I wrote "but will be faster" I meant that this approach (greenpois0n + redsn0w) would get you jailbroken/untethered in much less time than making a custom IPSW with pwnagetool and then restoring the custom IPSW

    There are still a lot of advantages with pwnagetool though, I still recommend it. You get a cleaner result with pwnagetool.

    Well, I was pretty skeptical with the iPad's baseband. I put it into a bunch of 3Gs and 3GSs but never used it myself. Every time I upgraded a phone to the 06.15.00 I tried the GPS, in all of them, all of them worked. I didnt even had the chance to see such failure and Im talking about 50 phones.
    So finally I found a newer 3GSs 32 and went to the iPad baseband. This one I'll keep it as an upgrade to my 16gb which was pretty full already. So far no issues at all. I think dev team guys hit the target with it.

    That is positive to hear. The one unresolved negative is that there is no way to revert from the iPad baseband so if you are can't claim warranty on your phone after you apply iPad bb.

    Musclenerd has said more than once that the search for an iPhone 4 unlock has identified multiple "potential unlock vectors" for the 3G/3GS baseband (5.14/5.15) but they won't be investigated until an unlock is developed for the recent iPhone 4 basebands
