PwnageTool 3.1.5, the best tool to jailbreak iPhone and iPod Touch has been release and is available for download (Links below).
PwnageTool is an iPhone/iPod Touch jailbreak tool that let you create a custom firmware (ipsw) for your iPhone and iPod Touch. Then you simply need to restore you iPhone/iPod Touch using that custom firmware to jailbreak iPhone or iPod Touch.
The best thing about PwnageTool is that it preserves your iPhone Baseband from upgrading which means while restoring the custom firmware your iPhone baseband stays intact hence can be unlocked later with UltraSn0w. The worst thing about PwnageTool is, it supports Mac OS X only 🙁 But Windows users need not to worry about it.. I’m here for you guys, I will be posting ready made custom firmwares using PwnageTool for you just stay Tuned.. or you can use Sn0wBreeze.
PwnageTool 3.1.5 supports:
- iPhone 2G
- iPhone 3G
- iPhone 3GS with early bootrom
- iPod touch 1G
- iPod touch 2G with early bootrom.
Tutorial on How to jailbreak iPhone/iPod Touch 3.1.3 firmware with PwnageTool will be posted shortly is linked below. I strongly recommend you to read the complete post below before trying the PwnageTool.
iPhone 3GS users (regardless of unlock) should stay away from this and all 3.1.3 jailbreak tools unless you know you have your “SHSH hashes” backed up via Cydia. That’s because if you make a mistake you may find yourself stuck at official 3.1.3 with no way to jailbreak or come back down to 3.1.2 to jailbreak.
If you really truly feel that you need to update, this version creates a custom 3.1.3 IPSW for you to restore to on your iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS with early bootrom, iPod touch 1G, and iPod touch 2G with early bootrom. If you don’t know if you have an early bootrom or not, please avoid updating until you learn more.
You don’t need to be pre-jailbroken on anything but the iPod touch 2G early bootrom. And really for that device, it’s faster and easier to use redsn0w 0.9.4 as mentioned in our last post. For that matter, if you have an ipt1g, iphone2g, or iphone3g(and don’t need an unlock), you should use redsn0w too (but version 0.9.3). It’s faster and you won’t have to go through a full restore process (just do an update then run redsn0w, pointing it at 3.1.2 FW instead of 3.1.3).
If you have an iPhone 3GS, PwnageTool works if you’re currently at version 3.1.2 or below (down to 3.0). You don’t need to be already jailbroken — PwnageTool will ask you if you’re jailbroken after you’ve created the IPSW. Don’t use PwnageTool on the iPhone 3GS if you’re at 3.1.3, it just won’t work. Downgrade to 3.1.2 using the methods described here. If you can’t downgrade because you don’t have your 3GS 3.1.2 hashes on file with Cydia, you’ll need to sit out the 3.1.3 jailbreak.
