PwnageTool 2.0.1

There is already an update to Pwnage. If PwnageTool 2.0 worked for you already, you do not need to do this again. Here are some of the issues that have been fixed:

– It auto-finds the bl39 and bl46 files better, if they’re on your computer
– It creates the ~/Library/iTunes/Device Support/ folder if not present, which should help with some 1600 errors people have been having.
– Many people have reported the PwnageTool not starting up at all (the icon never stops bouncing). This issue should be resolved now.
– The Sparkle AppCast URL is fixed in this version, so automatic updates should work for future releases.

You can download via BigBoss here or Hackint0sh here and you can read the entire post and it’s comments here from the dev team.

    still no 3g / installer v4 support yet?

  2. so have u tried it yet on ur friends computer yet doug?

  3. Courtney says
  4. i just want my themes and customize back.
    and until there is support for that then there is no point in having another ugly non-useful app (for now as there are no apps working with 2.0) on my home screen.

  5. you should make another news that theres a custom firmware out for those who dont have a mac. i tried it and can reccomend it. the whole process was done in 10 minutes. just updated the custom firmware with itunes, waited and done.
    i used an 1.1.4 ziphone jailbreaked and unlocked iphone.

  6. what you mean ichigo you update your iphone to 2.0 and jailbreak it and unlocked with the ziphone? is so let me know so i can do it and yes m with you about the mac lots of people dont have a mac it sucks dev team just worked on the mac version…. ziphone is better!!!

    • the custom firmware i was talking about is a modded firmware that automatically unlocks and jailbreaks your iphone once installed.
      i think its only available on bittorrent trackers. check piratebay, they have a couple.
      bevore the pwnage tool was out, getting a modded 2.0 beta firmware was the only way to update and unlock your iphone. it worked great for me, google it and you might find more specific tutorials. all you need to do is download it, update it using itunes and youve got your unlocked and jailbreaked iphone with 2.0 firmware

  7. DJContagious says

    This SUCKS!!!!
    While .mac users are getting UPDATES to their jailbreak methods, us WINDOWS users are siting ducks, waiting for even an ALPHA or BETA of a jailbreak application. THIS SERIOUSLY BITES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Stevey101 says

    Just wondering, is there anyway to un-pwn your iphone/ ipod touch when you do this?

  9. Mike Zappa says

    Ahhh, I love my 1.1.4!

  10. So where is the installer apps? Why are we doing this

    • they will slowly start to trickle in… several things are different between 1.x and 2.x.. patience :)

    • This is a multi-step process every time Apple updates firmware… right now all that is done is jailbreak, giving read write access. Now that this is done, devs can begin working on making apps and installer work. It just takes a little time, but well worth it!

  11. ok here is my question…. can anyone tell me please what im going to be able to do with my phone after i will use this prog?

    thank you,sry im a noobie =]

  12. can sum1 tell me if MobileScrobbler works?

    • it’s available in the app store

    • no it’s not.
      I’m asking for the unofficial app for
      The official app is available in select countries and does not scrobble. the App Store doesn’t allow background processes, so…

  13. Hmm, I’m wondering when will there be a 2.0 jailbreak of 1st gen iphone/itouch window users. Also for the 2.0 update will there be a installer and a appstore app, cause i would like some of the free stuff from the app store on my jailbroken iphone/ipod touch.

  14. please help !!!
    I already pwnage my iphone and when it restarts already restored it lokes the same as when was with 2.0 locked its not jailbroked and unlocked please help!!

    I don’t know if anyone else is having the same problems as me in regards using PwnageTool 2.0.1 When I try to restore with iPhone1,1_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore at the end of the process I get this message “an unknown error occured (6) After this I have to restore using the Apple software otherwise I can’t turn my iPhone off. Anyone has any idea what I am doing wrong. Thanking you

  16. faker4000 says

    Can somebody upload the updated 2.0_Custom_Restore.ipsw for 1st Gen iPhone made using the Pwnage 2.0.1 Maybe that might work when I try to restore using the Custom_restore. ipsw ( for Mac)

  17. stephanie says

    I used the pwnage 2.0 and haven’t had no problems, yeah i noticed no installer i have cydia and app store, everything working fine for me.

  18. Ok. If I have iPhone 2G and I have a Mac, I can fully unlock it (not only jailbreak), right? I mean I don’t have AT&T in my country:D

    • if everything goes about smothely, you should be able to unlock and jailbreak your iphone. but since there are no apps for installer or cydia yet available for the 2.0 firmware, there really isnt much point of updating

  19. Finally I have the firmware 2.0 .. pwned worked perfectly and without any problem .. Thanks Dev Team!

  20. hey if i jailbreak my 3g phone with this prog , im going to able to run any apps that you guys have avaible?

    thank you

  21. Can you PWNAGE 2.0 in a Mac and then after your 1G I phone is unlock and jailbroken, can you download your data in a windows computer?


  22. does pwnage work on a mac running tiger???

  23. I have now fw 2.0 jailbreak and unlock. Everything is fine, just for a little detail.. MY Mail app don’t work!!!!!! When I open the mail before 5 seconds it close and don’t start… What I do now? The entire process again? Please give a light!!!

    • Hey dude, thats really strange because i also jailbroke and unlocked firmware 2.0 in my iphone, but my mail app works great.

      maybe if you redo the process and restore your iphone with a new hacked firmware you might find the solution.

    • Emilio, I did and I had worked to make the whole process about three times so that everything would work .. but now everything is fine .. thanks for your answer!

  24. eljefe79 says

    i have a 1st gen iphone pwned with 2.0 firmware, its unlocked and activate but my wifi doesn’t work properly, for example youtube, apple store and even stocks and weather dont work!!!!! help please!!!!!

  25. faker4000 says

    Yes I managed to get my iPhone to work by following this following these instruction:

    OK, here is what you need to do if you have an iphone 2G with 3.9 bootloader and unlocked using ziphone. Therefore, never been pwned.
    -First, connect your current iphone to itunes. Back up everything. (Sync your accounts).
    -Next, go into user/library/itunes and create a folder named “device support”. If its already there, then delete everything in it.
    -Now download the proper 2.0 ipsw file from this forum.
    -Donwload the 3.9 and 4.6 bin files from this forum.
    -Place everything on your desktop.
    -Download Pwnge 2.0
    -Open up pwnge 2.0
    -Select the first option (iphone) but in expert mode
    -browse your computer to locate the 2.0 ipsw file.
    -Next in general tab, use enable baseband update
    -In bootloader, checkmark the box for update the bootloader and checkmark upgrade to 4.6.
    -Finally, pick build and hit the next button.
    -Pwnage will ask you to locate both the 3.9 and 4.6 bin files. Locate them manually (Make sure they were unzipped first)
    -Then it will ask you to find a location to save the new custom ipsw file.
    -Hit save and Pwnage will build the custom firmware in the selected saved location.
    -Pwnage will ask you for your administrative password to finalize the process.
    -Once the process is done, you will get a prompt telling you to plus in your iphone using your usb.
    -Follow the steps on screen to put your phone into DFU mode.
    -Pwnage will tell you it successfully found your phone in DFU mode
    -Next, close Pwnage and open up Itunes.
    -Option click the restore button and locate your new custom firmware.
    -Let itunes do its thing.
    -Once the process is done, your iphone will boot into 2.0 software but don’t touch it yet.
    -Bootloader will do its thing by flashing your iphone to the proper baseband (4.6)
    -Do not touch your computer while this is happening even if Itunes is asking you to set up a new iphone.
    -Once the flashing has been done, your phone will be unlocked, activated and jailbroken.
    -If you have two macs like I do, I did the pwnage on one and had my back up on another.
    -Plug in your iphone and itunes should tell you to restore your phone with previous settings (contacts, pictures etc.)
    -Choose, restore and let the iphone get all of your data back.
    -You will notice a new tab for application.
    -Checkmark “sync all applications”.
    -Get your apps from the itunes store.

    Enjoy, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me @

  26. HELP!!!
    I was just trying to Pwnage to jailbreaking for my AT&T sim, and when I picked the 2.0 firmware, the next step wasn’t picking the Bootloader(i did download them, and they are on my computer), it went right to the custom building ipsw. file….. I was able to get into my 3G, but once I put my sim in, there is no service…\

    Can anyone help me, please?
