    On a side, Pwning just means your iPhone bootloader (not the BB bootloader) will be able to run unsigned code and therefore you will be able to restore using custom ipsw.
    So Pwning != Neutering != restoring with custom ipsw

    If you want to Pwn your iPhone so you will be able to restore using your own ipsws in the future you can do it using the PwnageTool (iPwner button).
    If what you want is to build a custom ipsw and restore your iPhone with it without unlocking (with BootNeuter) you can create one from PwnageTool and deselect the first checkbox (or even better leave it checked but deselect "Neuter Bootloader").

    Hope this clears everything
    Ok, i know that. But I think I expressed myself in a wrong way.
    PWN, NEUTER and everything i already understand what it is. MuscleNerd already explained here in a very clear way.

    What i wanted to ask was, if we can install CUSTOM FIRMWARE(PWNing your phone of course), but without installing BootNeuter. Cause i watched a lot of videos (i dont have a mac) and right after you PWN your phone you go to BootNeuter.

    i think that has already been explained by idarbert.

    here you can find a lot of screens that will show you the progress of the tool.
    http://iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=893

    as you can see you don't have to neuter or activate the phone at all! if bootneuter is installed as an app anyway, that i don't know.



    following is from the original PwnageTool help:


    PwnageTool.app - Help

    Using IPSW Builder

    Once you have loaded an existing original Apple IPSW file that you obtained earlier (using the browse .ipsw button) you are ready to create a custom ipsw, click the "IPSW Builder" button. This will cause a window to appear with a few different selection items, these are listed as following:-

    Enable baseband update - Determines if the baseband update should be enabled in the custom ipsw. Only check this button if you wish to update the baseband modem portion of your iPhone. Warming! This may remove previous baseband unlocks or other modifications that have been previously made. If in doubt leave it unchecked.

    Neuter bootloader - This will enable "Bootneutering" to the baseband firmware allowing custom firmware to be installed onto the iPhone baseband by convincing the iPhone that it is secure. Arbitrary secpacks and fls files will be accepted when the device is in this state. In order to use these features you will need to locate the two bootloader files. Please note, these files are not shipped with Pwnage Tool.

    Under the BootNeuter checkbox will present two new options that are selectable these are -

    Updrade to 4.6 NB: Unless you understand this option you should avoid it.
    Downgrade to 3.9 NB: Unless you understand this option you should avoid it.

    Unlock baseband - This will enable the unlocking of the baseband to all networks using a custom "software unlock" process. This should be used if you plan to use a SIM card from a carrier other than the one provided by your original iPhone carrier.

    Activate Phone - This will activate the phone so that it can be used with iTunes. This will bypass the Apple activation process and set the iPhone to be in an Activated state allowing access to the device's functions.

    Use Custom Pictures - This option enables the use of custom iPhone graphics to replace the stock images that are used when the phone boots or goes into recovery mode.
