    Default [PwnageTool] Licence question for modified version

    hi


    i'm quite frequent on another iPhone forum in germany. unfortunatelly the admins have decided, that we are not alowed to talk about software that can unlock the phone.
    but we can talk about software that can jailbreak it. but as soon as it will also perform an unlock, its a no-go.


    so, no question, the pwnagetool, is right now the best tool to jailbreak your phone.
    i found out, how i can modifie the pwnagetool, so that you can only jailbreak the phone, and not unlock it anymore. was an easy plist modification, and right now, it would suite that other forums restriction.

    however, befor i realese anything, i first ask for permission from the devteam.

    the app is still the same, only the the firmware 2.0 bundles and the "baseband patches" for 1.1.4 go away. all the credits remain the same, no mention of my name, nor would i change the credits and all.

    is there anyway, i could release this modified version of the pwnagetool in that specific forum?

    thanks a lot

    What kind of sense would it make to neuter pwnage tool to just jailbreak o.O? The process of pwning already incooperates modification of the iboot and jailrbeaking is also done via software patching.

    The brainer conclussion jailbreaking is less illegal than unlocking in case they are concerned on germanys kinda strange laws regarding hacking schauble bundestrojan toolz or anti cracker law is redicilous anyways if one knows the facts.

    the german law is crazy, as a matter of fact, its impracticable.
    thank god i'm from switzerland, we've got a quite liberal law here, can do pretty much.

    anyway, most of the boards in germany allow talking about unlock, jailbreak, etc.
    its just this specific forum, they are cool, the users, nice and all, but the staff is, you know, "we dont want to get sued, so dont talk about it".


    anyway, first we couldnt talk about any hack. "does anybody know how i can change the theme" would have gotten banned, since it was a "hack":

    now they've gone so far, that we can freely talk about jailbreaking, hacks and all stuff, but not about unlocking.

    we can/could give instructions on how to jailbreak, but not if that programm is also able to perform an unlock.


    well, i talked to the staff, they're discussing, wheter they would allow a program that is "jailbreak-only-capable", and so far it looks promising as they state clearly "jailbreaking is fine, as long as it wont be able to unlock the phone".

    so, i could just delete the 2.0 firmwarebundles, and the "baseband" references in the iphone 1.1.4 info.plist.

    however, i still need some kind of answer from the gods (dev team), wheter i could distribute that modified version of PwnageTool, and if so, what i would have to be aware of (like for sure keep the credits etc)

    yeah, germany is kinda creepy, regarding security (and lots of other stuff too ^^).

    ever heard of the computer chaos club?
    they managed to steal the fingerprint of schäuble (the politican with the stupid ideas, like placing a camera in your house if they think you might have contact with a terrorist ^^) and made it available as well as an easy guide how to reproduce the fingerprint. in your face.

    anyway, thanks for regarding the question. its not that important, so dont hurry, since the other forums team are right now busy as well with redesigning the board.
