downloading it .. not sure if I'm going to install it right away though. Nothing really available just quite yet.
what do you mean? all of my apps are 4.1 compatible other than 3GU
thanks, downloading the torrent now!
EDIT: DONE downloading after 1 min
Does it work for me?
I have a 3GS With 4.0 on Baseband 05.13.04 I want to Upgrade to 4.1 for the Game Center and the other things but I want the unlock I currently have to work
Seems odd that they would only release it via torrent.
the official releases from Dev Team are ALWAYS by torrent, the direct downloads are unofficial mirrors The mirrors get added on as they are uploaded by their unofficial 'friends' websites...
as long as you make sure that you tell pwnagetool to keep your existing baseband you should have no problems.
I see. This is my first experience with PwnageTool, so I assumed that they did direct download like the other jailbreak tools. I guess it helps keep their servers from being hammered, though they're currently down anyway.
all their tools come in torrents officially; mirrors (which are always unofficial) are added for all their tools for direct downloads and pwnage will not be the exception. The torrent is around 33MB and since it's just released the speeds are the same or more as a direct download for it.
EDIT: They just added the mirrors for direct downloads if you want to go that route... Just remember to "Always check the files that you have downloaded against our published SHA1 hash"
Huzzah, now I can update to 4.1 now.
Yay ATV SSH!
I'm fairly certain we will see apps in the next few weeks, possibly sooner
dumb question im sure. but whats the difference between this and limera1n jailbreak for my iphone4 4.1 that i already have? should i do this now too?
I'm on 4.1.0 finally. Thank you iPhone Dev Team and comex

Nope that's normal released as a torrent. And for those to lazy to go to the dev-team site here ya go.
Were pleased to release PwnageTool 4.1 for Mac OS X (free of charge, blog ads, and donation requests as always!). Todays big new addition to the jailbreak family is AppleTV 2G, which was first shown jailbroken in its release week!
Through a combination of the recently released geohot limera1n exploit , @comexs recently released pf kernel exploit, and our original pwnage2 exploit, PwnageTool 4.1 works untethered on these devices at firmware 4.1:
iPad (firmware 3.2.2)
iPod touch 4G
iPod touch 3G
PwnageTool allows you to restore to a custom IPSW file. For instance, you can restore to a pre-jailbroken firmware while simultaneously maintaining your current baseband (and thus your ultrasn0w carrier unlock). You can also add whatever packages you want in the Expert mode of PwnageTool, if you wish to pre-install Cydia packages. iPhone 3G users get the additional benefit of selecting their own boot and recovery logos, and features like multitasking and battery charge percentage.
PwnageTools main advantage to ramdisk-based methods (limera1n, greenpois0n, redsn0w) is for unlockers those that need to keep their current baseband and preserve their ultrasn0w unlock. But in this new age of both bootrom- and userland-based exploits, its an excellent platform for continuing the jailbreak through all future firmwares. More on this later! In the meantime, please enjoy this free software and please provide any usage feedback in our comment section below.
AppleTV 2G users: Welcome to the JB family! Right now, about all you can do is command-line stuff via ssh. You also have afc2 available, so you can use tools like ifunbox to move files around. These are the *very* early days of AppleTV 2G jailbreaking, so itll take some time for JB app developers to come up with methods to use your AppleTV 2G from the remote, versus the command line. PS: Your ssh password is alpine
please change it when you can
Expert mode: By popular demand, the IPSW file selection in Expert mode is now completely manual (doesnt use Spotlight). Just pick your IPSW file directly instead of waiting for the Spotlight search to complete. In Expert mode, the default is to hacktivate (Activate the iPhone), so if you have a legit SIM card be sure to deselect that option in Expert mode.
DFU button: That DFU button in PwnageTool is more than it looks like. It guides you through the DFU process, but then also runs the appropriate exploit to convince your device and iTunes that all is legit. The DFU button in PwnageTool is not just your average DFU.

i Have a 3gs, ios 4.0.1, 5.13 BB and i use ultrasn0w unlock.
i want to update to 4.1 with pwnagetool... if i use simple mode it detects the 4.1 firmware that i have downloaded and then asks me if i want it to activate the phone. I do not need that since i have the at&t sim for activation (to avoid youtube&push problems). If i choose not to activate will that still keep my curent BB or will it update it?
In Expert Mode the option to update the BB is grayed out, so my guess in basic is the same. Hacktivate (the activate w/out ATT SIM) and Baseband are 2 different separate settings and options in Pwnage Tool.
after upgrading your phone to 4.1 can you just use the backup from your 4.0.1 and it will brong back all your settings and stuff?
Im an ATT user when it asks to update through iTunes I click NO correct?
What are you trying to do first of all? Jailbreak? Unlock in the future?
"NO" IS CORRECT
I recommend you restore as NEW not update, it's the correct way to do pwnaned firmwares and you will not lose 500MB of space and work better also. after that if you want you could use your backup of 4.01, I don't like doing it but you could...
Pwnage is great.
The only sad part of this new pwnage tool is that they removed the option to select custom boot logos So I don't know which logos will be on my iPhone once I update it.
It is still there for 1st Gen and iPhone 3G and some 3GS users. iPhone 4 users and other new iDevices are toast in that sense.
