    @aqua bass: Yes that is right - however don't use bootneuter if you don't need to as it is a very dangerous app.

    I included how to remove it after it has been used in the tutorial.

    Instead of removing BootNeuter.app, what about just changing the permissions? You could 'chmod 000 BootNeuter.app' so that your idiot friends can't use the app, but if you ever wanted it again you can just chmod 755. I don't know much about the iPhone OS; can anyone tell me if that wouldn't work?

    my phone was unlocked by ziphone 2.5 do I have to restore the phone before i start
    the pwnage tool procedure? or can I just leave it as is and start? also, since ziphone
    downgraded my bl and i also used its refurbish mode since my first attempt didn't work
    will it be safe to use the upgrade to 4.6 only?

    thanks,

    sam

    BootNeuter won't let you deselect neuter without also deselecting unlock.

    Also, regarding wearout -- the W18 NOR chip allows a minimum of 100,000 erase cycles before bits start to stick. You'd have to rerun BootNeuter continuously for 4-5 months straight to reach that limit.

    But most people won't need to change their settings once they've run BootNeuter once. Even future unlocks can be done easily without re-running BootNeuter -- as long as you're still neutered: http://wikee.iphwn.org/sgold_bootrom:simple_unlock

    How does Bootneuter work?

    Does it modify the baseband bootloader to allow everything we want?
    Is sgold_bootrom the baseband bootloader or is it something different again?
    How is it possible to update normal 3.9 bootloader to 4.6. Is the vulnerability used that geohotz found or did the dev team find something new?

    I hope someone from the dev team can answer this.

    The boot sequence for the S-Gold CPU is: bootrom->bootloader->baseband. BootNeuter alters the bootloader to allow any (unsigned, patched) baseband and it removes the secpack restrictions. The ability to write the bootloader at all first appeared in gunlocker, but if you check Geo's blog entry at http://iphonejtag.blogspot.com/2008/...s-to-come.html you'll see he actually credits the Dev Team for the WP# trick that allows bootloader modification (he does the same credit in his C code too). BootNeuter in turn make use of geo's nice extended secpack erase trick needed on stock 4.6BL iPhones (needed until you're neutered).

    @MuscleNerd: I had a look at the package contents of pwnage tool and I saw there were resources for iPhone firmware 1.1.4, 1.2. 2.0 and iPod firmware 1.1.4 and 2.0 complete with patches for lots of different things.

    I was under the impression that pwnage took apart and changed the files in the IPSW automatically but it looks like it simply replaces certain files with already patched versions?

    I also noticed a lack of 1.1.3 firmware - even though this is meant to work on 1.1.3? Does this mean that it won't work on 1.1.3? Or even that should Apple bring out another beta that leaks we would have to wait for you guys to update pwnage tool BEFORE we can use pwnage on it?

    Thanks.

    I'm on 3.9fb from iPlus. I want to get to 4.6 neutered.

    Should I select the upgrade to 4.6 option in the PwnageTool app or pwn and then use Bootneuter on the phone to get to 4.6 neutered?

    Also, any harm in restoring to apple stock 1.1.4 ipsw before beginning the process? Is that recommended?

    You don't need to restore if your on 1.1.4 already.

    I did my phone using iPlus and used pwnage and it worked perfectly.

    I would suggest you reflash the bootloader when you have booted in by selecting 4.6 and turning off the FB and on the neuter.

    I just restored my iPhone using the same custom IPSW as last time. BootNeuter ran on startup but told me that as my phone was already neutered and unlocked it didn't need to change anything.

    So as long as you don't change the bootloader IF you set it to upgrade on start to 4.6 back to 3.9 manually then it will just detect the settings are correct and ignore it.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The reason I restored was because I thought I would use iLiberty+ to move the fonts and ringtones and free up installer space for apps. But it didn't work and all my settings in installer became messed up so I thought I would restore again as its night time here and I am not going anywhere! I have time to re-sync! needless to say it restored perfectly from the custom firmware again!

    answer me this... doesnt this tool now make all other tools like iplus, iliberty, ziphone, and others obsolete?

    people are already saying this is the safest cleanest way to activate/unlock/jailbreak the iphone and its future proof and unbreakable......or is that all untrue?
