iPhone/iPod 2.2.1 Update

January 31, 2009 Leave a comment

Apple has released an update for the iPhone and iPod Touch to firmware 2.2.1. This looks to be a bugfix release with no new features, and the iPhone Dev Team has upgraded their QuickPwn and Pwnage tools to handle the new firmware. Read the release notes at the Dev Team Blog before upgrading as their recommendation is to NOT use QuickPwn with a 2.2 iPhone 3G if you want to continue using it unlocked.

iPhone 3G Unlock due today

January 1, 2009 Leave a comment

Due sometime today, the iPhone 3G unlock is compatible with firmware 2.2/baseband 02.28. This contradicts the previous recommendation to iPhone 3G users to NOT update to firmware 2.2, but is a welcome bonus allowing the latest software to be unlocked. The package will be released through Cydia and requires the use of Quickpwn to get the iPhone into a jailbroken state with Cydia installed.

Just to repeat what has been stated many times before, this is free software, so don’t be conned into paying for it on any of the rip-off sites. It’s also beta software, so there may still be bugs. Thanks to the iPhone dev team for their work and continued support of the jailbreak community.

Quickpwn Tool 2.2 for Mac screenshots

Where Pwnage tool creates a custom firmware image to send to your iDevice, Quickpwn modifies a standard firmware install that is already there. Before starting Quickpwn you need to udpate to the new firmware using iTunes. The Quickpwn process is quite simple, the screenshots below show the steps and it even walks you through getting the device into DFU mode. The last three images are photo’s of my iPod during the install which continues on the iDevice once Quickpwn has finished. Read more…

iPhone/iPod 2.2 Jailbreak now available

November 23, 2008 1 comment

The iPhone Dev Team have updates their QuickPwn tool for Windows/Mac and Pwnage tool for Mac to support the latest 2.2 firmware. Full details and bittorrent download links are available from their blog, the software is also showing up on several other bittorrent sites. Before charging in I would recommend reading the post at the iPhone Dev Team site as there is a lengthy guide to which version you should use for each iDevice. Both versions have just arrived at Basshead Towers so I’ll be trying them out and posting some screenshots as soon as I finish typing.

Once again thanks to the iPhone Dev Team for their continued support of the jailbreak community, and hopefully certain news web sites will be a bit more positive this time around.

PwnageTool 2.1 and QuickPwn 1.1 for Mac released

September 13, 2008 3 comments

Both of the iPhone and iPod Touch jailbreaking apps have been updated this afternoon, and are available for now only as bittorrent downloads (until demand subsides) from the iPhone Dev Team site. Which app you use depends on how you want to jailbreak your device. PwnageTool will create a new restore IPSW file that iTunes can use, and QuickPwn will jailbreak a device without using iTunes. I had previously updated to firmware 2.1 on my iPod Touch so QuickPwn was the best choice. Read more…

QuickPwn Mac screenshots

August 30, 2008 2 comments

I just got the chance to try QuickPwn on the Mac and take a few screenshots to show the stages of the process. There are some differences from the Windows version I previously used, the program takes you through the whole jailbreaking task instead of passing you to a terminal program, and it detects your device automatically. I was disappointed to no be offered a choice of what software gets installed, so didn’t go through with the jailbreak. Here’s the screenshots of what I did. Read more…
