PwnageTool 4.0: Jailbreak iOS 4 for iPhone and iPod Touch

Dev-Team has released the PwnageTool 4.0 to jailbreak iOS 4.0 on iPhone 3GS, 3G, and iPod Touch 2G. PwnageTool 4.0 jailbreak iOS 4.0 while preserving your baseband so that you can unlock it with UltraSn0w. Download PwnageTool 4.0 jailbreak links are posted below.

pwnagetool 4ATTENTION: Each device has known upgrade traps and different upgrade scenarios that need to be fully understood and considered before using PwnageTool 4.0. Please read the complete post below and perform the upgrade in the particular way that matches your current device state. As advised, you shouldn’t have upgraded your devices if you have previously relied on our tools for hacktivation and/or a carrier unlock.

PwnageTool 4.0 Supports:

  • iPhone 3GS (Old BootROM only + Already jailbroken NOT with Spirit jailbreak)
  • iPhone 3G
  • iPod Touch 2G
  • Mac OS X only

*** iPod Touch 3G iOS 4.0 is NOT supported with PwnageTool 4.0. iPhone 2G and iPod Touch 1G does NOT support iOS 4.0***

iPhone 3GS

Summary: PwnageTool only works on previously jailbroken 3GS devices with the old bootrom.

  • If you have a Jailbroken iPhone 3GS with the OLD BOOTROM and you DID NOT use Spirit to jailbreak then you can create the ipsw with PwnageTool 4.0 and restore with recovery mode.
  • If you have an iPhone 3GS with the NEW BOOTROM this is NOT supported by PwnageTool 4.0

iPhone 3G

  • If you have a Jailbroken iPhone 3G at 3.1.2 (but not jailbroken with Spirit) then you should create the ipsw with PwnageTool 4.0 and restore from recovery mode or DFU mode.
  • If you have an out of the box iPhone 3G you should restore using a PwnageTool 4.0 ipsw using DFU mode.
  • If you have a Jailbroken 3.1.3 iPhone 3G it is very possible that this can fail from recovery mode, if this failure happens you will need to restore using DFU mode.
  • Can also use RedSn0w to jailbreak. (Guide linked below)

IMPORTANT! Whenever you need to enter DFU mode, you will need to do so using PwnageTool.

iPod touch 2G

  • If you have an iPod touch 2G that is jailbroken (but not with Spirit) then you can restore using recovery mode.
  • Can also use RedSn0w to jailbreak. (Guide linked below)

Baseband Unlock

  • iPhone 3G and 3GS baseband unlockers (those who rely on ultrasn0w to make phone calls) should always be very wary to update their firmware, however our Ultrasn0w application will unlock all recent (including the current) 3GS and 3G baseband firmware versions, once you are jailbroken using PwnageTool 4.0, install ultrasn0w from Cydia and you’ll be unlocked.
  • Remember! This baseband unlock situation is rare, should you upgrade your iPhone blindly at the next iOS release please don’t expect an unlock – but for now you are OK (whatever state your baseband is in).

Jailbreak guides using PwnageTool 4.0 will be posted shortly.

If i used spirit, but have no need to “unlock” the iphone but instead just jailbreak it, would it be possible to use this crack? or am i better off waiting for a new spirit release?

Hello guys,
my iphone is:

3GS, 16GB
Baseband. 05.11.07
Model MB715LL
CARRIER: 5.0
VERSION IS 3.1.2 (7D11)

I’ve used Blackra1n on it since months ago, it is working ok, but as you surely know everytime when i turn it off it goes to restore mode and i have to run the jailbreak (Blackrain) again

My question is:
it is ok to run the PWnage tool 4.0 on my phone?
i don’t really want to update it, just want to get rid of the power off problem, what i have to do?, how?

Thanks in advance
