QuickPwn WARNING! Quickpwn also activates iPhones if you need activation It will NOT unlock either phone versions 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] Now Jailbreak 2.0.2 as well! See Below! (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/QuickPwnGUI120.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) You will see some stuff go by the screen like this: Then you will be prompted to turn off your phone and press enter when you have done so: 6) As it says on screen, 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. 7) In this next step we need to get our phone into DFU mode so it can be pwned. If you have any problems following the onscreen instructions, then refer to this DFU guide at http://sleepers.net/news/blank/dfu-mode/ . The program will help you through the steps but it often takes multiple attempts to get into DFU mode. And, if you fail to get into DFU mode, the app quits and you must start over. It will ask you to: a) Turn off your phone. b) Wait 5 seconds. c) Hold the power button for 5 seconds. d) Press the home and power buttons for 10 seconds. e) Let go off the power button and keep holding the home button for up to 30 seconds. Read the DFU guide link on screen as detailed also above. When you are in DFU mode, the app should automatically take over and you will see this: Wait a bit for the process to finish, and congratulations! You are done. The command line interface takes 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 quicked 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!”. Troubleshooting: 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!
