    From what I gather, neither Pwnage Tool nor RedSn0w are working on PPC Macs. True?

    If so, is there any way around that (other than buying an Intel Mac :rolleyes:)?

    Get someone's custom IPSW file or find a Windows machine I guess.

    Yep, don't even need iTunes to use Redsn0w. Just a copy of the ipsw. Takes like 3 minutes.

    redsn0w crashes under PPC as well.


    Yeah, I'm in the same boat as you. I'd rather wait than use someone else's IPSW.

    All you need is a copy of the 3.0 restore ipsw.

    You can get a copy right off your own MAC if you have updated to 3.0 (User/library/iTunes/software I think)

    Just copy it on a thumb drive and then to a Windoze machine. Run the Windoze version of Redsn0w and point it to your own copy of the IPSW you moved/copied.

    Couldn't be easier or safer.
