Discuss [PwnageTool] FAQ and How To Guide at the PwnageTool - Hackint0sh.org; Pwnage Guide For Windows and Mac.
Mac Users: Download Pwnagetool or QuickPwn and use it ...
This tutorial will use WinPwn to unlock and jailbreak your 2G iPhone on the 2.0 firmware. The latest version of WinPwn does install Installer.app
Download from http://rapidshare.com/files/13607464...Setup.zip.html or http://rapidshare.de/files/40196561/...Setup.zip.html
IMPORTANT: Some 2G users have experienced problems with the latest version of WinPwn. *****FOR THE PARTITION SIZER, SET IT TO 512MB!!! IF YOU DO NOT SET IT TO SOMETHING ABOVE 500MB, IT WILL NOT WORK*****
Please keep these notes in mind...
- You MUST do a full uninstall of winpwn before installing the new version
- Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes ( Currently 7.7)
- WinPwn uses 300MB of ram at peak due to the ipsw being extracted in memory
- You must first click browse and load an IPSW to use WinPwn
- If you see Failed to load image catalog/payload catalog, this is fine and won't cause problems
- If you already have service with official service do not activate or install Youtube Fix
These are instructions on how to unlock and jailbreak your 2.0/2.0.1, 2G iPhone using Windows and WinPwn.
To follow this tutorial you will need to have iTunes 7.7 installed (make sure to reboot). Also, you may need to download and install .Net Framework if you are on Windows XP.
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage. In it place the following files: Winpwn 126.96.36.199 or Winpwn 188.8.131.52 , 3.9BL , 4.6BL , and the latest 2.0 firmware.
Install WinPwn by extracting the downloaded zip from Step One and running the setup executable. Once WinPwn has been installed it will put a shortcut icon on your desktop. Double click to launch the application.
Once WinPwn has opened click the Browse .ipsw button.
Locate the 2.0 firmware file (iPhone1,1_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw) from the Pwnage folder on your desktop and click Open.
WinPwn will check the firmware to make sure its valid. Now click the IPSW Builder button.
The IPSW Builder window will open to the Applications tab. Check to select Cydia and if you are not on AT&T then check to select YouTube Fix.
Click to select the Custom Images tab. From here you can can select
your own boot images.
Remember the rules for them: RGB or Grayscale format with Alpha channel and dimension bellow 320x480. If you would like to use the iClarified ones they can be found here: Boot Logo, Recovery Logo
Click to select the Custom Payload tab. From this tab you can select custom payloads you have created to be automatically installed. We will discuss this in a future tutorial.
Click to select the Advanced tab. Check to select: Activate Phone, Enable Baseband update, and Unlock baseband.
We will also need to load the Bootloader files. Click the Bootloader 3.9 button and then select the BL39.bin file in your Pwnage Folder. Then click the Bootloader 4.6 button and select the BL46.bin file in your Pwnage Folder.
*****FOR THE PARTITION SIZER, SET IT TO 512MB!!! IF YOU DO NOT SET IT TO SOMETHING ABOUT 500MBS, IT WILL NOT WORK*****
Click the Build .ipsw button at the bottom left to build your custom ipsw firmware file. Navigate to your Pwnage folder and click the Save button.
Once WinPwn has finished creating your custom firmware then click the iPwner button from the main menu.
Select the custom firmware file we just built from the Pwnage folder on your desktop and click the Open button.
You will then be notified that your iTunes has been Pwned!
Next we will need to put the iPhone in the DFU mode and restore using iTunes. To put your iPhone into DFU mode please follow these instructions!
iTunes will prompt you that you are in recovery mode.
Hold down Shift and click the Restore button in iTunes.
A popup window will appear asking you to select your firmware. Select the Custom firmware file we saved in the Pwnage folder and then click the Open button.
Once the restore is complete you will have your iPhone unlocked and jailbroken!

Quickpwn also activates iPhones if you need activation
It will unlock only original iPhone version although some people have said that the iPhone 2G does not get its modem updated - this is unconfirmed at this time.
iPhone 3G Modem IS UPDATED. If you want to unlock it DO NOT update it or you may make it not possible in the future.
Official unlocked 3G phones can update and jailbreak using quickpwn and keep the unlock.[/I]
(Thanks to BigBoss for photos/instructions - I will update this as things change!)
WINDOWS only (Mac version coming)
QuickPwn is a command line based method for jailbreaking ONLY both the original and 3G iPhone as well as iPod Touch.
There is a basic GUI version now available - see below for more!
You do not need to do this if you already have a working, pwned 2.0.1 device.
This should eliminate many of those 160x errors many windows users are experiencing.
Who should use this tool?
This is for those that are not planning to restore. It’s not clear what the activation state is after the process therefore, I only recommend this for those that have a contract carrier or an unlocked phone already. This is also perfect for those that pwned and did not install Cydia as it will result in Cydia being installed. If you are on a 2g and need to unlock, you can do so with bootneuter, but this will not activate for you. If you are on a stock device and using AT&T or a contract carrier, this is the perfect jailbreak for you. You will not lose your contacts or have to do any backups. Finally, if you are going to restore anyway, especially if you need to unlock a 2g, you may as well use winpwn or pwnagetool.
Here are the steps to using the tool:
1) Download the tool http://xs1.iphwn.org/releases/QuickPwnGUI150.zip and extract it to a folder such as c:\quickpwn.
2) Download the proper firmware image such as 2.0.1 3G or 2.0.1 2G. Save this image in a place you can easily find it as quickpwn will ask you to select it when you run it.
You can download the firmware by connected your iPhone/iPod to iTunes and clicking on "restore" - itunes will download the firmware. Disconnect the phone/ipod when the download has started as you do not want to restore!
3) Hook your phone up to your PC and double click "Quickpwn"
4) Browse to the correct firmware and select it.
Chose if you want Cydia and/or Installer on your phone and if you want custom boot images. Just tick the boxes as appropriate!
5) Follow the onscreen instructions to get your phone pwned.
You will have to get your phone into DFU mode as will be shown on the screen.
When you are in DFU mode, the app should automatically take over.
Wait a bit for the process to finish, and congratulations! You are done.
This 5 minutes approx. before it is ready to interact with your iphone/ipod and it takes approximately 10-15 minutes to jailbreak.
It may be quicker than this - but be patient. When the command line part is finished the iPhone will show a spinning circle as it is still being jailbreaked.
Wait for the phone to reboot to the home screen before touching it!
8) Optional 2g phone only. If you need to unlock your phone, install bootneuter from Cydia and run it! Select “neuter, unlock, do not change bootloader settings, and then flash!.
1) If during the process you did not kill iTunes you will see these questions:
Is your device connected to your computer via USB? Type “Y” to continue.
Is your iPhone currently powering on? Type “Y” to continue.
If you see these questions it means that your phone is not being recognized by the PC. Remember you must have iTunes running and it must see your device. If you have to, close and reopen iTunes, disconnect and reconnect your device, or even reboot your PC. You should not see the above two message as part of the process.
2) When you turn on your iPhone, it does not have any display. Man, is it bricked?
This is probably caused by using an invalid boot image (logo.png) in the process. If you wait long enough the thing should boot up to springboard normally. In this state, you do not have any logo showing you the device is booting. You can fix it by repeating the process with a valid png file.
QuickPwn will be updated to work on Mac soon - and with options to add and remove different fuctions so be patient if these options do not suit your needs!

Turn off your phone by holding power, sliding to power off, and waiting for it to power off. Do not take the phone off the pc connection! If you do, you must start over.
a) Wait 5 seconds.
b) Hold the power button for 5 seconds.
c) Press the home and power buttons for 10 seconds.
d) Let go off the power button and keep holding the home button for up to 30 seconds.
If you have a problem and were able to solve it, please let me know what you did so I can include it here for others to benefit from.
PwnageTool 2.0 is a Mac only program. Windows users should go to this site.
After installing 2.0, Mail.app kept crashing on start, and Safari wouldn't accept cookies. There are three solutions:
1 - This happens when you restore email account settings from iTunes. Set them manually and you won't have this problem.
2 - Restore to your custom ipsw (you don’t need to DFU restore if you are Pwned, normal restore will work). Then select "Set up as a new iPhone" when iTunes prompts you. Your first sync will bring back all of your settings anyway.
3 - Fix by installing OpenSSH from Cydia. Log in as root with the password alpine and enter the following in the Terminal:
* chmod 777 /var/mobile/Library/Mail
* chown mobile /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/
* chown mobile /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/Cookies.plist
PwnageTool won't run on PPC Macs.
Make sure you do not have any programs running, then move your ~/Library/Caches folder to the trash. Do the same for the /Library/Caches folder. Reboot the Mac.
If you are a legitimate AT&T customer with a 3G iPhone and you do not have service after Pwning, then uncheck Activate during the Pwnage process. Go to general settings and turn off 3G and then turn it back on again. Also make sure you have an Pwned x122220000 ipsw in your ~/Library/iTunes/Device Support folder.
PwnageTool 2.0 does not launch, and only bounces in the dock. The solution is:
* Launch PwnageTool
* Launch Activity Monitor (found in Applications/Utilities on your Mac)
* Look for a process called "ps" and quit or force quit it. Alternatively you can use the Terminal to do this by entering "kill -9 -1" but this will quit the Finder and all running programs and reload.
If you get Error 1600 from iTunes (or if you see in your log a failure to prepare x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw), then create a folder called Device Support here: ~/Library/iTunes/Device Support If that directory already exists, then remove any files in it. Restart PwnageTool and begin again.
If DFU restores are giving you trouble, another solution is to use the first version of PwnageTool with 1.1.4 firmware. Once you are Pwned on 1.1.4, you can perform a normal recovery mode restore to your custom 2.0 ipsw. Note: the iPhone does not need to be pre-Pwned to be able to DFU restore into a Pwned ipsw. It needs to be pre-Pwned only for normal recovery mode restores of a custom ipsw.
Loss of EDGE service on T-Mobile. You receive the message: "Could not activate cellular data network: you are not subscribed to a cellular data service." Press Settings, General, Reset, Reset Network Settings. Service should now be restored.
If you DFU restore to the original 2.0 firmware, your unlock will remain intact. To undo the unlock you would need to run BootNeuter and relock the iPhone, then restore it back to 2.0.
I have no sound/My iPhone is acting strange after being pwned successfully? What is going on?
First of all - ALWAYS set up your iPhone as a "new" phone - never restore from backup unless your phone was not previously jailbreaked!
WARNING! Restoring a backup of a previously jailbreaked phone can cause a number of issues only fixable by another restore so don't restore from a back up of a previously jailbreaked phone!
If you have set up your phone as new and are still having issues then do a full settings reset from settings>general>reset>reset all settings and that should fix it!
I PWNED MY IPHONE/IPOD WITH THE WRONG FIRMWARE! ITUNES SAYS MY IPHONE IS AN IPOD (or vice versa) WHAT CAN I DO?
MY PHONE WON'T TURN ON! ITS REBOOTING CONSTANTLY! I HAVE CONSTANTLY SCROLLING TEXT! and ANY OTHER ISSUE WHERE PHONE IS NON RESPONSIVE
You can fix this!
Put your phone into DFU mode.
Restore to apple original firmware and you can start over again!
iTunes Error Messages - What they mean and how to fix them!
Error 1013/1014/1015 - This error message occurs when you downgrade or upgrade to a different baseband than the firmware your restoring to has. This message does NOT mean the restore failed - it simply means the phone firmware does not match the baseband. Use iLiberty/Independence to kick the phone into normal mode and out of recovery mode and it will work.
Error 6 and 10 - This error message is because of a problem with your firmware - this message will occur most often because of using unsuitable boot/recovery images. Make a new custom firmware to fix this and use suitable boot images or use the standard images that came with the pwnage software.
Error 1603/1604 - 160? something
IF YOU ARE RESTORING TO A STANDARD APPLE FIRMWARE *NOT CUSTOM FIRMWARE"
This error is down to itunes not liking your USB ports on your computer. Use a different USB slot or a different computer if possible. That is the easiest fix!
IF YOU ARE RESTORING TO A CUSTOM FIRMWARE AFTER RESTORING FROM STANDARD APPLE FIRMWARE
IF you have pwned your phone once and then restored back to apple original firmware successfully and THEN tried to restore custom firmware you WILL get
an error in iTunes as the apple firmware "unpawned" your phone. You have to repwn it using iPwner and then you can restore using custom firmware.
IF YOU ARE RESTORING TO CUSTOM FIRMWARE AND YOUR PHONE IS STILL PWNED
See "if your restoring to apple firmware" above as it is the same issue.
BootNeuter Error 5: This is because you upgraded to the 2.0 beta firmware without unlocking first in 1.1.4 like your supposed to. You will have to restore to 1.1.4 unlocked and then delete the 2.0 baseband. You can do this by adding iclarified to the installer sources (as explained in the localization part below) then select "Delete 1.2 Baseband" - install that and let it delete your baseband. You MUST then restore to 1.1.4 apple original firmware and then re-pwn your phone and restore to 1.1.4 custom unlocked before BootNeuter will work again.

How about international payload ? I live on a european country , and .. how to make calls ? since it is no support for my Country (romania)
Hmm it sounds like awesome stuff is happening but i will wait until all the bugs are fixed. Good job guys!
The Guy Above Me is Touching My Special Place!
i got also the question about the preparation for international use.
What happens if you pwn your iPhone. Neuter your bootloader and unlock and after that disable the neuter button. Will the iPhone stay unlocked with the original OTB unchanged bootloader or will the unlock not work anymore.
I guess it will not work anymore since the original bootloader will check the integrity of the baseband. Integrity check is skipped by the neuteredbootloader
3.1.2 Blackra1n / Blacksn0w
Ok, so just to be clear, if I have a downgraded BL (done by our beloved Ziphone) should I choose to upgrade in the process of pwonage the phone, or with bootneuter I can go freely between 3.9 and 4.6, even though my phone was downgraded by Ziphone to 3.9?
I feel like such a newbie.
