    I've been getting a big red "X" while trying to create a custom OS4 ipsw all day. Anyone know how can I get around this?

    I'm using the "expert mode" in order to uncheck the "activate iPhone" option. Other than that I haven't done any further customization with Pwnage Tool.

    I've tried re-downloading PwnageTool 4 and the OS4 ipsw (iClarified) and no luck.

    Any clues? This is has been very very frustrating process. It should be simple.

    Thanks

    is it asking you for the password? do you have enough hard drive space?

    I've never had this happen. Did you check the sha1 sum on PT? I would make sure to download it from the official torrent.

    I have 300GB of space on my 500GB HD.

    How do you know it's asking for a password?

    It asked for a password during the build process and I entered the correct password and it proceeded.

    Don't know what sha1 sum on PT is? Sorry...

    I downloaded it from two separate mirrored sites on the Dev-Team Website. I didn't use the official torrent no.

    Thanks so much for your help...

    because it has always asked for a password (this is normal). i'm just trying to figure out why it would give you errors. maybe the original ipsw is corrupted. consider downloading the original ipsw and pwnagetool again.

    Open up Terminal and enter:

    /usr/bin/openssl sha1 /Users/pasipple/Downloads/PwnageTool_4.0.dmg

    replacing your username and/or path to the .dmg. It should spit out the sha1 sum and it should match what's on the dev team's website.

    I've now tried three different ipsw(s) the latest from iClarified. FDownload PwnageTool 4 three time also from different sites off of the Dev-Team site.

    Thanks....

    I entered exactly what you suggested and got "No such file or directory".

    I'm sorry...with your terminal command above...should the PwnageTool_4.0.dmg be in the Downloads folder? I'm lost...

    You need to make type the actual path to wherever the file is.

    Hummm...that didn't work either. I placed the PwnageTool in my Applications folder....I deleted the .dmg after doing so?

    I also put my true user name in the path...not "pasipple"...still isn't working.

    Do I still need the dmg?

    I downloaded the dmg from Dev-Team again and ran the terminal command with the PnageTool.dmg in the folder.

    Got "15bdb90ec40f1e279bb648eb7e9d90ebe07b66d2" this time so no missing file or directory.

    Guess that worked? I'll try creating a custom ipsw again.

    That's the correct sha1 sum, so you've got the correct file. Try again let us know what happens.

    I guess I'll try that. I'm not done crying yet.

    Be nice if my PwnageTool 4 worked. Version 3.1.5 worked for me several times before.

    Thanks....

    I'm thinking there must be something wrong with your computer. A missing library or something. Maybe try on a different Mac? Or just check your PM.

    It's a fairly new MacBook Pro.

    Anyway..."ihaz Success"!!!!

    I tried 3 more times with the same fail error then it worked. After I entered my system password it took a lot...and I mean a lot longer to build the custom ipsw then it was before? So maybe the terminal command fixed it.

    Oh well....I'll move on....

    Thank you guys...so much!!!

    I've got a working ipsw now but I'm still trying to figure out why my PwnageTool keeps giving a "FAIL" error?

    I've verified the SHA1 Sum is correct (not an expert but from what I can tell this is like a code number placed in the PwnageTool.dmg to confirm it's authenticity). Anyway the SHA1 Sum is "15bdb90ec40f1e279bb648eb7e9d90ebe07b66d2" so I know the file I downloaded hasn't been tampered with.

    I even when back downloaded PwnageTool 3.1.5 today and tried to do a custom ipsw on a copy of the 3.1.3 ipsw I have and got the same error?

    Strange...some setting or file is missing on my MacBook Pro? I'd love to find out how to run this problem down so I can use PwnageTool in the future.

    And like I said earlier...PwnageTool 3.1.5 worked fine for me when I was making custom ipsw(s) in the past. Don't know what has changed????

    Any thoughts...I know there a lot of brilliant guys out there.

    Anyone have any knowledge about the "fail" I received in the PwnageTool log on my previous post?
