    I have a macbook here and not a windows, so unfortunately i can't use snow breeze to update my device with preserved baseband..

    My question is, can I use the old pwnagetool to create a custom firmware with iOS 5 GM?

    Thanks in advance

    Short answer is no, not until they update pwnagetool for ios5.

    However you can generate a custom ipsw using sn0wbreeze in parallels/fusion, then put you phone into restore mode using sn0wbreeze.

    You can then restore the phone using the custom IPSW using iTunes 10.5 on your mac system. From then on you can use redsn0w tether boot your phone each time you reboot.

    Thanks for the answer.

    Unfortunately, I have no Parallels on my Mac, so I guess it's better to wait for the update.
