How to Unlock iPhone 2.0 Beta Using PwnageTool (Mac)
These are detailed instructions on how to unlock your iPhone 2.0 Beta Firmware using PwnageTool for Mac OS X.
Before you do this you must have access to the 2.0 Beta Firmware. Only do this if you have authorized access.
WARNING: There is no Installer.app for 2.0 Beta Firmware yet. You will not be able to install applications from Installer. SSH however has remained functional for me!
Follow the instructions to Pwn your iPhone using 1.1.4. These instructions can be found here
Make sure you install BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH from installer once you are done.
Double click PwnageTool to launch the application again from your Desktop.
Click the Browse .ipsw button in PwnageTool.
A window will appear in which you should choose the .ipsw file for the firmware you would like to unlock then click the Open button.
If you do not have the 2.0 Beta firmware .ipsw file I can't tell you where to get it but its around...
Click the IPSW Builder button in PwnageTool.
From the menu that appears select:
- Activate phone
Then click the OK button.
IPSW will ask you to select where to save the custom ipsw file. Click the Save button.
IPSW Builder will then ask you to login using your administrator username and password. Do this then click the OK button.
PwnageTool will then show you that IPSW Builder has completed successfully.
Launch iTunes using its icon in the dock if its not already open.
Select your iPhone from the list on the left. Hold down the Option and click the Restore button.
Select the custom firmware file (iPhone1,1_1.2.0_5A225c_Custom_Restore.ipsw) we just created and click the Open button.
iTunes will then restore to our new custom firmware.
Once iTunes restore is complete your iPhone will reboot and you will be in the new 2.0 Beta firmware. I still have SSH capabilities; however, Installer.app is not yet available.
