    Pwnage Guide For Windows and Mac.

    Mac Users: Download Pwnagetool or QuickPwn and use it to unlock/jailbreak original iPhone latest firmware 2.1.

    Jailbreak iPhone 3G up to latest firmware 2.1.

    Windows Users:
    Download WinPwn and use it to unlock/jailbreak original iPhone up to firmware 2.0.2.

    Download and use QuickPwn to jailbreak/unlock original iPhone up to 2.0.2 (unlock remains from 2.0.1)

    Jailbreak iPhone 3G with QuickPwn (no unlock available yet!).


    Post 1: Mac - PwnageTool / QuickPwn

    Post 2: Windows - WinPwn

    Post 3:
    Windows - QuickPwn




    Download From:


    There are 2 modes in the new version of pwnagetool.

    These are:

    Simple Mode - Which provides step by step instructions as below and automatically detects your correct firmware and adds the unlock and activation and jailbreak with Cydia automatically to your
    custom firmware.

    Expert Mode - Where you can adjust the settings on the various different additions to the custom firmware - if you click through and do not change anything in expert mode it will make the same
    custom firmware as simple mode however doing this instead of simple mode can fix issues with
    the simple firmware not working correctly. There is more on expert mode at the end of this guide.

    Original iPhone: This can be unlocked and jailbreaked and activated.

    iPod Touch: This can be jailbreaked.

    iPhone 3G: At this time you can ONLY jailbreak and activate iPhone 3G.


    Step By Step Guide to Simple Mode

    Select your device type as below:


    PwnageTool will AUTOMATICALLY search for the correct firmware for your device.

    IMPORTANT: iPhone and iPhone 3G firmware is differently named.

    original iPhone firmware for 2.0 is named iPhone1,1_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw

    iPhone 3G firmware is named iPhone1,2_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw

    You can make sure you have the correct firmware on your mac by connecting your iPhone/iPod to iTunes and clicking on restore then iTunes will download the correct firmware. Disconnect your device when downloading as you don't want to restore with standard firmware!


    If you are going to unlock your original iPhone then you will need the bootloader files for 3.9 and 4.6 - the following steps let you select them.

    PwnageTool will automatically detect the bootloader files for you if they are on your mac.

    Bootloaders can be downloaded from : http://www.enkrypted.com/bootloaders.rar

    If you chose to manually browse for the bootloaders on your mac then follow the next steps.

    If you already have the bootloaders and pwnagetool detected them then follow the prompts and continue!







    Click on "Yes"


    Click on "Yes" when pwnagetool asks your if you are a legit iPhone user! (This will keep the phone locked and not activate it)

    on iPhone 3G click on "yes" or you will not have a wireless signal! (NO on 3G activates the phone but as it can't unlock yet there is no signal)

    If you have no signal on 3G build another custom firmware and click on "yes" this time.

    to UNLOCK and activate CLICK "NO!"


    PwnageTool will now build the custom firmware file.

    This will take about 5 minutes. Be patient!


    Your mac will prompt you to enter your password to continue - if you don't have a password
    then just click on "ok" and pwnagetool will continue to build your firmware.


    If your Phone/iPod has the pineapple logo already then pwnagetool will tell you that you have
    been successful and to exit it and select the custom firmware in iTunes to restore with.

    If your device has not be pwned before then click on "No".


    PwnageTool will try and enter DFU mode so it can "pwn" your device.

    It will either do this automatically or prompt you to turn off the phone and then it will tell you to hold
    the power and home buttons and let go of them at certain intervals.

    It will prompt you when your phone has succesfully entered DFU mode.


    Exit pwnagetool if it gives you the success message below.


    Using iTunes click on restore and the "alt" key and browse to the desktop and select the custom firmware that pwnagetool created.


    Your device will restore.

    If you chose automatic mode it will try and unlock your phone with bootneuter.




    BootNeuter can take anything up to 30 minutes. DO NOT EXIT OR RESET THE PHONE.

    Be patient. It should be successful so don't risk breaking your phone because you are not patient!


    QuickPwn 1.1 For Mac

    Download from http://blog.iphone-dev.org/

    QuickPwn for Mac works on iPhone/iPhone 3G and iPod Touch ALREADY restored to 2.1 Firmware.

    It will jailbreak and/or unlock your iPhone/iPod depending on the model.

    It is AUTOMATIC.

    Simply connect your device and QuickPwn will detect the model and find the firmware.

    It will ask you if you want to keep the original Apple boot logos and then it will start the jailbreak and/or unlock process.

    You will have to turn it off and put it into DFU mode following on screen instructions and then it will reboot when finshed.

    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/136074645/winpwn_2.0.0.4_Setup.zip.html or http://rapidshare.de/files/40196561/winpwn_2.0.0.4_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.

    Step One
    Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage. In it place the following files: Winpwn or Winpwn , 3.9BL , 4.6BL , and the latest 2.0 firmware.


    Step Two
    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.


    Step Three
    Once WinPwn has opened click the Browse .ipsw button.


    Step Four
    Locate the 2.0 firmware file (iPhone1,1_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw) from the Pwnage folder on your desktop and click Open.


    Step Five
    WinPwn will check the firmware to make sure its valid. Now click the IPSW Builder button.


    Step Six
    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.


    Step Seven
    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

    Step Eight
    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.


    Step Nine
    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.



    Step Ten
    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.


    Step Eleven
    Once WinPwn has finished creating your custom firmware then click the iPwner button from the main menu.


    Step Twelve
    Select the custom firmware file we just built from the Pwnage folder on your desktop and click the Open button.


    Step Thirteen
    You will then be notified that your iTunes has been Pwned!


    Step Fourteen
    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!


    Step Fifteen

    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 ONLY unlock original phone 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.

    This can be used to unlock and jailbreak up to 2.0.2.

    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/QuickPwnRC3.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.

    Problem 1.
    PwnageTool 2.0 is a Mac only program. Windows users should go to this site.

    Problem 2.
    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

    Problem 3.
    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.

    Problem 4.
    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.

    Problem 5.
    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.

    Problem 6.
    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.

    Problem 7.
    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.

    Problem 8.
    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.

    Problem 9.
    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!


    Problem 10.

    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


    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 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.


    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.

    thx man, tonight I upgraded my jailbroken 1.1.4 to 2.0.2 then QuickPwn'd it. Very simple process!
  7. BStecke macrumors newbie

    Aug 25, 2008
    I have previously used Pwnage for the 2.0.1 firmware and attempted to update to 2.0.2 tonight via the Pwnage update. However, my mail does not work properly when I have the custom 2.0.2 firmware installed. It constantly tells me that the username/password is incorrect (this is for Gmail, specifically). I have restored to both the official 2.0.1 and my custom 2.0.1 and both work fine with Gmail. I have built the firmware twice and I get the same result with both builds. Any suggestions?

    I've read a few posts regarding entries via Terminal, and if that is what is needed I'll need a noob step by step, if you could. Thanks.

    I would NOT recommend updating to 2.02. I was running smoothly on a pwned 2.01 version. I've spent the whole night just trying to get my phone to connect to everything. First try, no carrier. Rebuilt the firmware again, used Simple mode this time to be sure, and got my ATT back on again, but have continual network issues (won't remember password), and cannot get my mail to show up, no matter what (says username/password is incorrect). I tried setting it up as a new phone, no better luck than trying a restore (which looked like it worked, but didn't when I tried launching mail).

    I'm now restoring back to 2.01 and wishing that I'd done something else with my evening. Hopefully I can get everything back up and running by tomorrow sometime.

    The old adage would have worked for me tonight - IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT!!

    Thanks, Apple. You're really starting to remind me of Microsoft.

    I stand corrected... this was a dev-team issue, apparently. I am still very much wondering why this version of firmware created so many issues for non-jailbroken phones. I made that incorrect association with my problems when updating. Now the dev-team has released an update, but I'm holding off for now.

    I've unlocked (pwnaged) my 2G iPhone to 2.0, and want to update to 2.0.1
    Do I have to go through the whole process again, or just load the new 2.0.1?

    Has anyone else notice their available space decrease on their iPhone after the Quickpwn process? I did and I think it's because of the way it works but I want some confirmation before I go and use my pwnd firmware to restore.
  15. spinstorm thread starter macrumors 68000

    Sep 14, 2007
    Obviously if your phone was not jailbreaked before then jailbreaking it adds at least 40MB to the phone so your available space will decrease.

    It is part of the process!

    No duh, but this was an increase of 500 MB, which is about the size of the RAM disk they create. I wanted to know if anyone else noticed this.

    Thanks for your snarkiness.

    Wondering if anyone here could answer a quick question:

    Got an original/2G iPhone that's currently used as an iPod touch; would like to jailbreak/unlock it using QuickPwn (Mac), and stick an active AT&T SIM card from a Razr V3 into the iPhone so it can be used as just a phone (no data).

    When, during the process of jailbreaking/unlocking, do I put the active SIM card from the Razr in the iPhone? Currently, the old iPhone has been used as an iPod touch, on Airplane Mode, with the old deactivated iPhone SIM card still inside.

    I'm guessing from what I've read that I should run QuickPwn (Mac), load "bootneuter," let it "activate" with the old deactivated SIM card inside, make sure the iPhone can work, power off the iPhone, and then swap SIM cards & turn iPhone back on & hope it works.

    Is this right?

    QuickPwn came out a day or so ago for mac (I will be updating this for the mac version and the new version of winpwn later).

    Don't get confused. PwnageTool makes you wipe everything and restore and unlock whilst quickpwn on Mac ONLY lets you jailbreak.

    QuickPwn on windows unlocks as well.

    The safest option to unlock using pwnagetool. But quickpwn for windows does the same thing without having to restore.

    You may not actually even have to restore as your using AT&T.

    If I was you I would jailbreak using quickpwn for mac and put your SIM in before you do it and see if it works when its finished.

    Having the SIM in or out actually makes NO difference. It's just easier to tell if the jailbreak and/or unlock worked immediately.

    If you phone starts up and doesn't show a signal it means it needs to be unlocked.

    One other thing to consider is that quickpwn on mac does NOT let you chose your boot images - you will get the pineapple logo. If you phone does get damaged apple would not fix it as they can see it was hacked.

    So its always better to use the original apple logos. Windows version of quickpwn does let you chose.

    If you want the safest then make a new custom firmware using pwnagetool and unlock and activate and keep the original apple images. But you will have to resync media and data so it will take a while.

    Its your choice. Do whatever is most comfortable for you.

    I used iLiberty+ to unlock a couple of iPhones fir a friend a few months ago, now he would like me to update them for him using WinPwn. Do I need to do anything to the phones before restoring? Do I need to do a regular apple restore? If I do restore before do I need to do anythng to the phone before restoring?

    Please help! I need to get this done tonight.

    Jailbreak failed, restoring from backup file corrupted?!?

    I tried to jailbreak iphone, but somehow failed and restored it to original Apple firmware, but was unable to restore from my backup as the file had been corrupted. Is this bad?? Wondering how to retrieve all my settings from that backup, and/or will this be a continuous problem if I restore again??

    2.02 to 2.01?

    I upgraded from a 2g iphone to a 3g iphone and am very happy. Now I wasnt to sell my 2g since I no longer have a use for it. I noticed it is easier to sell it unlocked so my goal is to unlock it.

    It currently has 2.02 and I need to unlock to. Do I jailbreak it and install 2.02 or can I install 2.01 even though it already has 2.02?

    What do I need to do to unlock this phone using QuickPwn?

    Waiting Activation

    Ok so I had a 2g 2.0.2 iphone that I unlocked using quickpwn and bootneuter it with 4.6 and 2.02.

    I havent tried to put a sim card from another carrier but my question is that

    It periodically is saying "Waiting for Activation" is that normal.

    I unlocked the phone so I can be able to sell it someone.

    Is it ok for it to say waiting for activation?

    I have Cydia installed as well.
